Hi Margaret,

You will be visiting Rapid City, which is in Pennington County in South Dakota. Here's a listing of the closest hotels near the cemetery:


As you will see, there are several less than 2 miles. I'd suggest taking a look at the reviews on this site to find the highest rated one. To that end, it looks like the Comfort Suites, which is #1 rated in Rapid, is less than 2miles from the cemetery. It might be worth a look. If you are looking for a more in-town location, some like the Hotel Alex Johnson for its character. It's rated #15 but is also not far from your point of interest.

As a disclaimer, I have not stayed in Rapid City. I prefer to stay outside the city in the more rural areas, such as Keystone or Hill City. However, it sounds like you may be on family business and have an interest in being close by to Mountain View.

As for eating, the Firehouse in Rapid City gets good reviews. If you are looking to drive a little, I highly recommend the Alpine Inn in Hill City or any of the lodges in Custer State Park

Have a good trip.

Going back over my original question on Pennington I am sorry that my second post on the forum to send my thanks, and acknowledge Erika and Sirtravelplan posts, doesn't appear to have been posted on the forum?

I really appreciated your messages on the S Dakota forum and the helpful advice and recommendations you gave.

Really looking forward to our visit in the summer.

Thanks once again
