This hotel is nice, clean, and quiet. Atmosphere is nice as well! The beds were way too hard for me and they don't have complimentary breakfast for guests. They do have a nice restaurant where they serve breakfast. I probably won't visit this hotel again but if you like hard beds then this is a great hotel!

I booked a room the night before I intended to stay. Hotel was very full with convention. The first room assigned was at the far end of the hotel. I knew I was going to the restaurant and lounge and that was all I had planned for my stay, so desk clerk searched and switched my original room so I...

We celebrated my sons 6th birthday here. The jacuzzi suite was spacious, the bed was comfortable, & the location of the room was good. The kids enjoyed water park while adults who wanted to swim enjoyed a full length pool & hot tub.

We were just in Rapid City overnight on our way home. This hotel has clean, comfortable rooms at an affordable price. We drove a couple of miles into town for supper, the hotel has easy access to the expressway.

Disappointed to pay a high dollar fee for a room to get average service compared to those half the price and NO BREAKFAST within the price. Position right of I90 which is good. Near Mall which is good if you want that stuff. We did not. Will go for other option next time

Everything was amazing. The room was fantastic and the price was quite reasonable. This was for a kids birthday party so we were really there for the water park but the water was ice cold and within minutes the kids were freezing with blue lips. We had to take them to the other pool where we finished the party. Everything...

Thanks so much for staying with us, and for taking the time to share your experience. I followed up with my maintenance team, and we have increased the water temperature to help compensate for the extreme cold temperatures we have had recently. We hope you'll give us a try again in the future.

Rooms nice and clean pullout was horrible. Adult pool area nice and warm heated water. Kids slide area way to cold both air and water temps to enjoy with kids. Food was great. No elevator to second floor
