We chose the Holiday Inn for our client appreciation party. Holy cow they made us look good! We were treated to the very best in customer service (thank you Sales office and banquet staff), the food quality and presentation was so impressive- we will be back for dinner at the restaurant - that looked wonderful. We didn't break the bank... More

This is an upscale Holiday Inn with full service, shuttles, swimming pool, hot tub, dinning room, bar, and games room. I had a large suite on the eight floor with a sitting room bar sink, microwave, and a small refrigerator. I was speaking at the convention Center and it was right next to the hotel

I stayed here for 1 night during a business trip. I am an IHG Rewards Club Gold Elite member. Location: This hotel is located in the middle of Rapid City right by the convention center. It's about a mile south of the I-90 and getting here wasn't too bad. There aren't any restaurants or stores in the immediate area, so... More

The rooms are very clean and cozy! Breakfasts is on the upper end although surprisingly did not have any cream cheese. You have to pay extra for it but it's definitely good value. Perfect location within a short walk distance from downtown.

I spent 5 days at this hotel while traveling for work. The front desk people were very friendly and accommodating, and this was the case with everyone I met. The rooms are very nice, I had a king bed room with a couch and it was large and comfortable. The bathroom, however, was very small and I would have been... More

This is a nice, clean, attractive hotel with a good location for exploring areas near Rapid City. Rooms are basic Holiday Inn style but main lobby is above average. Only downsize is the price seemed high for what we got.
