Got off to a bad start: TV didn't work. Had to change rooms, first to a room with no remote for the TV and finally to one that was fully operational. But airy, spacious room, good bed. Lots of nearby restaurants, including one a few steps across the parking lot (Outback). Despite proximity to I90, noise not a problem.

We weren't expecting such a nice room for the price. The room was roomy, clean, quiet and the breakfast was good. The staff was helpful. Location was good for us as well, Good value for the money. Would definitely stay again

I can't say enough about how great of a motel the Rapid City Econo Lodge really is. They have a great pool with whirlpool and a free breakfast for guests that includes omelets, biscuits and gravy, cereal, cheese, fruit, juice, coffee, and rolls. That alone saves you about $10 a person when you're traveling. It's easy-on easy-off from Interstate 90... More

Where too start. The room that smelled like pee or the dirty hallway carpet that was just plain gross or the elevator that smelled like leaking hydraulic fluid and hot burning oil. I would have tried to another motel but it was Labor Day weekend. Won't stay here again though.

Our room was clean and the bed comfortable however, the doors were hard to close and lock. We heard doors slamming frequently, I'm sure we were not the only ones with this problem.

The staff was very friendly and helpful! The pool and slide were amazing. The room's bathroom was designed weird with the short vanity. While the vanity had storage, I don't like to put things in drawers or under the sink for fear of forgetting the items at check-out and cleanliness of the storage area. Not to mention that two days/nights... More

Third floor is the best unless you like to hear the people above you squeaking across the floor/ceiling. Family and seniors with grand kids enjoy the pool with its two-story slide. There are a number of good chain restaurants along with Target & Walmart close by.

This Econo Lodge is just off I-90 immediately north of Rapid City. The main attraction is a decent size pool with a 2-story water slide. It was packed with kids on the 3 days were stayed there.

We stayed at this Hotel for Sturgis Bike Week. We paid extra to have the ground floor with the outside door - so we could park the cycle right in front of our room.

We stayed recently at this motel during Sturgis Bike Week. Lodging is typically expensive during this time, but this motel was reasonably priced. We found the rooms to be clean.
