Favorite place in Rapid City
This is my go-to place to stay in Rapid City. The staff is so wonderful, and the hotel is very quiet. Great location with lots of food and shopping nearby. Great pool area as well.

2/10 Poor

Nightmare stay.
Horrible local area. Car was broken into, and the cameras didn’t work properly to see who it was clearly. Area is very terrible with lots of drug activity. I will need these guys to reach out to me in order for me to change my stance on them. The woman at the front desk was nice though.

6/10 Good

Probably stay elsewhere if you can.
Charged a fee for use of a debit card which was not disclosed. Lengthy check in with a couple who seemed very confused when we first tried to use a credit card. Two of our credit cards were declined even though we’d been using them across country on our road trip. They kept asking us to pay cash which we didn’t have in us. Bed was comfy but bathroom was sparse (half used bottle of shampoo in shower) and grout was black and gross looking. Dead cockroach near window. Probably won’t stay again. Lots of other choices.

Clean quiet room with jetted tub.
Check in staff was friendly and very helpful. Clean and comfortable room. Quiet considering location is busier area. My only complaint is the hidden charges that they don’t tell you about on hotels u til after you pay to reserve. Even with that being said excellent motel. We rented room with jetted spa tub in room and was great!

The room was ready with the heat already turned on! Hope they get the ice machine fixed before the LNI hits. Overall, a comfortable stay with gracious hosts and staff.
