I would pick a different motel next time.

The hotel was old and the rooms could stand to be remodeled again. Bed pillows were very non supportive and not comfortable. The breakfast buffet was terrrible with food that tasted bland, stale bread and doughnuts. The pool and hottub had green water in them and smelled like pond water. Needs more maintenance all around. Hotel was 20 miles from Mt Rushmore attactions. Staff was friendly.

not for me

clean room, but felt outdated. Probably good for families ,but not for adults traveling alone. Took too long to get breakfast. Too many people using the one waffle iron.

Super noisy!!

This hotel is nice, clean & in a great location BUT it was the loudest hotel I have ever stayed in! I got NO sleep & was wide awake @ 6am due to the noise. We could hear the elevator all night long, we could hear people talking in the hall & in the next room, also we could hear the people above us showering & talking. I guess nothing is insulated. Don't stay here if you want to sleep. $45.00 plus tax was too much!

Convenient hotel location

The location is convenient to downtown as well as expressways. The room is small for 2 people. The breakfast was fair.

Semi disappointed

I chose this hotel because it said pet friendly. Although they allowed pets, there really was no place to take my large dog out to do her business, except the weeds along the road. Breakfast was also chaotic - too many people and no place to sit. The servers were too busy to be helpful. The TGI Fridays next door was convenient, but I wasn't impressed with my room. It was adequate but older.

Good Value and Location

The Hotel is in a really good location because it is close to the interstate and anything you might want to do IN Rapid City. We have a large family (with four kids) and the room was plenty big. There was some painting and other maintainence things going on during our stay, which to me is a good thing because I don't like when hotels become run down. It was clean and the staff was friendly. The continental breakfast was better than your average as well. I would recommend this hotel if anyone asked.
