My husband and I walked in to the Foothills Inn on a very busy night and explained that we had a bad experience at a hotel down the street and asked Gail and Bill if they had a room for us. They welcomed us with open arms and made a very stressful night much happier. The room here is twice...

We stayed here one night on our way to Custer. We walked in and asked for room. Good rate for tourist season. There was several ball teams there and we heard no noise on the second floor. Clean and comfortable. Cold cereal and continental breakfast. You can ask for a Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwich at the desk.

The hotel was good for the price. It was clean, comfy and quiet. The room was pretty big so there was plenty of space. I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a good night sleep with a budget price.

We stayed for 3 nights. Rooms were clean upon arrival but the place is very dated. The website looks better than it is. During our visit, our room was never cleaned. The first morning, we left at 11am and came back around dinner time. The second, we left at 8am, came back at 10am for 30 minutes then left again...

We visited in June, which is during Rapid City's tourist season. Foothills was good for its price and location. While in South Dakota, we visited the Badlands (about an hour away), and Mount Rushmore. The room was relatively clean and spacious. Breakfast was mediocre.

This place was an ideal location for our visit to Sturgis , Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse monument. Clean rooms and helpful staff so can,t complain. Also a few good restaurants within walking distance. Just be aware the price for this middle of the road hotel rockets during Sturgis week.

The room was clean. Bed comfortable however linens were old style colored comforter and microfiber blanket. I prefer white comforter or at least double sheet blanket. Bathroom was outdated but good shower. Staff was very welcoming.

We had a fantastic stay at the foothills inn. Had a small issue with checking in and checking out, but Gail and Bill took extremely great care of us and even upgraded our room at the same price! The bathrooms are a tad small, but we were there to sightsee and not staying in our hotel room. Very good continental...

It is okay if you want a clean place to sleep for the night at a low price. The location is easy to get to and a variety of restaurants are nearby. The housekeeping was excellent, but the room was in need of a good makeover. The carpet was stained (it almost looked like a blood splatter) and the same...

The Foothills Inn is a very nice place to stay. Convenient to most anything you want to do in Rapid City. The room was large and well laid out with refrigerator and microwave oven. They also had a free breakfast but we did not avail ourselves of that. The king size bed was like new and very comfortable. For the...
