Easy access to Black Hills adventures -- and an on-site waterslide
Located off Interstate 90, Econo Lodge Rapid City is convenient to just about every major Black Hills attraction. Mount Rushmore National Memorial? Twenty minutes away. Rushmore Plaza Civic Center? Head south into town, about four miles. Accommodations cover the basics -- free local calls, cable television with HBO -- plus a few extras like free deluxe continental breakfast (think biscuits and gravy, cereal and muffins) and complimentary Wi-Fi in the lobby. All guests can access the indoor heated pool, with a separate hot tub and 180-foot waterslide.
Highlights
  • Minutes from Rushmore Mall and convenient to area attractions
  • Indoor heated pool, hot tub and waterslide
  • Free deluxe continental breakfast (biscuits and gravy, cereals, pastries)

Rushmore Mall is a half mile away, and there are a number of restaurants close by, including Outback Steakhouse and Boston's Restaurant and Sports Bar (both adjacent to the hotel).
Rooms

Nothing special about this on the 2 visits we made. Internet only in the lobby and there were no tables to put your laptop on. Had to ask for coffee because there wasn't any in the room and the air condtioners need to be quieted down and work more efficiently. It was in the 90's and the hallways were very warm. I quess you get what you pay for.

I would never stay at this hotel again. The bathroom door did not work, the air conditioner was falling off the wall and it was disgusting. I was very disappointed with the quality of this hotel and could not wait to check out.

DEPLORABLE

This is, BY FAR, the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. And that includes the days of crashing anywhere in college. Don't let the updated exterior fool you, NOTHING is updated inside this hotel. It is run down and smelly. The beds were sagging in the middle, they refused to move us to a non-smoking room as we had requested because we had booked on [...]. The front desk actually gave us a bottle of Fabreze to deal with the smell in the room!!!!! The toilet was crooked, the bathroom was disgusting and there were cigarette burns in the 1970s drapes. Half of the lights in the bathroom and bedroom were burnt out. Because it was too late in the evening to switch hotels, we had to put up with it for one night. To add insult to injury, there was NO HOT WATER FOR A SHOWER IN THE MORNING. Unless you want to ruin your vacation, or unless you are paying $20 on a name-your-price website, DO NOT STAY HERE.

Good place to stay with a family.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. If you had a question they were more then willing to find the answer if they didn't know.
