Historic Hotel Alex Johnson with updated, quaint, rooms. Great location for exploring the best of Rapid City restaurants and nightlife. It is a very walkable and ideal location for a short or long stay.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Had a really nice stay at the Alex Johnson and really appreciated the charm of this great little hotel. Our room and bathroom were comfortable and the recent updates were quite nice. The Alex Johnson is being remodeled at the time of this review, but the renovations didn’t hamper our stay. There is a Starbucks in the lobby, as well...

Pros: Location! Convenient to excellent downtown eateries for both breakfast and dinner. Also within walking distance to Memorial Park and unique downtown shops. Easy drive to many area attractions, most of which are within an hour in any direction. Old hotel with lots of character and history. Unique features, such as inlaid floors in the lobby and historical documents. Parking...

This is a great place to stay. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Only real issue is parking: if you don't use valet, you have a block and a half walk to the parking garage. As of my stay (3/21/17) they were undergoing some renovations so there were occasional noise issues. But the workers were very considerate in making sure that...

Room was not ready at the listed check in time. Front desk staff was rude and were not accommodating at all. Bathroom was dirty in the most important places. Room was nice and updated. Price was definitely high for the service we recieved.

I enjoyed staying at Hotel Alex Johnson. It is close to lots of downtown locations and really not far from anywhere in Rapid City. Great service and friendly staff. Enjoyed my stay and I will gladly stay there again.

I stayed in one of the updated rooms. The bathroom has the most notable change with the classic subway tile swamped out for modern tile and fixtures. Well appointed but I kind of miss the old charm. And be aware, the floor plan is still from the 1920's so the bathroom is the width of phone booth. However, I love...

Front desk is under staffed. Took 15 minutes to just check in. Hotel lobby is dingy. Rooms are small and cramped. I had 2 queens and barely had enough room to get around the beds. Downtown location was best part of this hotel.

My husband and I stayed here for our two friends' bachelor/bachelorette party. Our room was small, but we did expect that since it was a historic hotel. Something that the brand or hotel can't help due to being a historic landmark in Rapid City. We did learn to book hotel rooms early, as they were a bit cheaper the more...

Way over priced for what you get and we did not get the room we ordered but still had to pay for it and we also got double charged which took 24 hours to fix and there were no amenities other than Internet. Parking is about a block away and your vehicle is not covered.
