The price was fair, the pool fantastic. Overall, I have discovered that people are rude and show no respect for anyone else. No one is quiet in the hallways anymore or considers that other guests may not be on the same sleep schedule as they are. Not the hotels fault but maybe signs are required to remind people that they're...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This hotel has it all-a fabulous restaurant, beautiful suites, a waterpark that our kids enjoyed, and beyond adequate meeting/banquet space. I have attended conferences here in the past and really enjoyed what they have to offer. Tonight I am here with my husband and two young children and the accommodations are perfect. This hotel is suitable for all travelers. It...

I decided to spent the extra money to have a small water park for my little girls. Upon arrival I was required to sign a long list of rules for the water area. Thinking it was going to be a great adventure...it was a huge mess! Absolutely no supervision in the kids area, most guests not following the posted rules!...

We picked this hotel because of the water park and the location. Our kids loved the water park and played in it for hours. Ages 4 and 6. The hotel was clean and decor was modern. Rooms were quiet. Only issue was no coffee after 9 in the lobby. Not a huge deal, but for a person like me who...

For the price and what you get in the rooms, this place cannot be beat! Easy in and out with the expressway so a good place to stop for the night. We were excited to hear their was an indoor water park which we checked out and hence the reason for the 4 stars as it was a big let...

My stay at the RC Ramkota was excellent. The hotel was clean and so was the conference rooms. The banquet staff was amazing and the food was excellent. The staff were very helpful with food options because of my food allergies.

The suites at Ramkota in Rapid City are beautifully decorated, the staff are professional and price is beyond reasonable for what you get. My suite was super clean, no complaints, internet was quick, water park and pool were fun. Very satisfied with my family experience!!!

Don't advertise A waterpark all over the place if it's not open because you can't handle, manage staff. Very disappointed because we booked this hotel because of your advertisements. Very poor management.
