We needed a pet friendly place in rapid city. All the hotels in the area were booked due to conventiins, but this BW managed to squeeze us in. The place is currently undergoing a renovation, but that didn't effect my opinion. The staff were friendly and courteous. The room was clean and well maintained. The restaurant was pretty good. I...

We chose this hotel specifically because it has an indoor water park (free for guests) and we travel with 3-year-old twins. That said, the water park was pretty fantastic for the kids... we traveled in mid-May and, even on the weekend, the water park wasn't overly crowded. The twins loved the pirate-themed park, the small slides, etc. There were two...

The Ramkota seems to be basically a good hotel as long as it is not under renovation. During our stay we were not able to use the Fitness Center. However, we enjoyed the really spacious indoor pool they have. And because there is a direct connection to a water park we can imagine that it is good for families with...

We stayed three nights at this rather large hotel recently. Pretty much everything was very good, from our renovated rooms to the pool to the restaurant (with a pretty fine salad bar) to the friendly front desk folks. Our room had a handy Fridge and microwave and the lighting was better than at most hotels. The only things to work...

We stayed at the Ramkota for our daughter's 12th birthday with four other friends and it was very enjoyable. Nice large rooms and the pool and water park were and excellent additional feature. The location was perfect being within walking distance of the mall and the theater.

The water park the hotel advertises is great for younger kids! If you are staying at the hotel you get free admission. Our three year old loved it. They had some larger slides, but the majority of it was for younger kiddos! The regular pool is also awesome. Probably one of the largest hotel pools I have seen! The room...

Hotel is an excellent place to stay. It's location was great. Very close to other hotels and places to eat. Mall areas were very close for shopping. Excellent place to hold a conference in the Black Hills. Rapid City has many attractions for families especially the National Monument of Mt Rushmore

I meant to ask why there was no breakfast. Every Best Western we have stayed in (about 35-40 different ones) there has been at least a continental breakfast. But that problem is really not a big problem...we can do without breakfast. Our first room had a bad odor which was rectified by changing rooms.
