Easy access to Black Hills attractions -- and an epic water park, too
Book a room at the Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott Rapid City and kids will thank their parents. The hotel stands adjacent to WaTiki, the largest indoor water park in South Dakota and an aquatic heaven for children of all ages. The hotel also connects to Sliders Bar and Grill, a popular hangout for sports fans with its 10-foot video wall, and its location just off Interstate 90 makes for easy day-tripping to sites like Mount Rushmore National Memorial and Crazy Horse Memorial.
Highlights
  • Adjacent to WaTiki Indoor Water Park
  • Adjacent to Sliders Bar and Grill
  • Free breakfasts include hot treats like waffles and breakfast sandwiches
Location
Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott Rapid City is situated on the east side of town, nine miles from the Rapid City Regional Airport and minutes from Interstate 90. Like most hotels in the area, it lies within an easy drive of signature Black Hills attractions (Mount Rushmore National Memorial, Custer State Park and more).
Rooms
Starting at about 300 square feet, the rooms and suites at  Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott Rapid City feature up-to-date amenities (LCD televisions, plush bedding) and spacious work desks (ergonomic chair included). Forty-eight suites are available, including the retro-themed "WaTiki Balcony Reef Suite," whose two balconies overlook the water park action.
Dining
Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott Rapid City treats guests to a complimentary breakfast with items like waffles and breakfast sandwiches. Sliders Bar and Grill serves lunch and dinner next door (think gourmet pizzas and slider sandwiches, salads and entrees), and various restaurants lie with a three-mile drive, including T.G.I. Fridays, Olive Garden and Outback Steakhouse.
Recreation
The primary draw, of course, is WaTiki Indoor Water Park, whose 30,000 square feet span six waterslides, a lazy river, and an arcade (entry fees apply). Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott Rapid City guests can also use the on-site fitness center, which has free weights, two treadmills, an elliptical, a stationary bike and a personal LCD screen for every machine.

Disappointed Vacation
Rapid City, SD
Jul 7, 2014

Ruined Vacation:

Waited a year for this vacation and the hotel was a nightmare, anywhere from the maids not cleaning the room to the maids dragging large trash into to elevator while just trying to get down stairs .Then stopping breakfast early saying ran out of eggs? You would think they would have planned ahead knowing there would be more people than normal since it was a holiday. And if booking this hotel for the water slide be prepared to pay for daily passes. Paid over $200 a night and still have to pay to swim. NOT A VALUE. Very disappointed!

Water park weekend

Had a big group (9) in 2 rooms. Larger Suite room was poorly laid out making it very difficult to get to the bathroom when the couch was opened into a bed.

Rapid city fairfield inn

Overall experience was good the beds were comfortable, the room was always clean and fresh. There were a couple downsides to it though. When we booked the hotel it stated that it came with a pool and hot tub. It does not! The hotel is connected to a waterpark that you have to pay to use,. So that was an unexpected extra amount we had to pay for. All in all I would say the stay there was pretty good though.

Expensive for a Fairfield. Water park tickets are $16 each on top of the motel rate.

Family getaway

It was a great location. Access to the water park was fine. Would of liked to have access to the hot tub after 9pm before 9pm kids from the water park would invade and use the jets to spray. The breakfast bar was well stocked at all times. Lots of choices. There was easy access to Mt Rushmore and all other activities.

Nice break for the long distance drivers

Rolling in at 11:00 at night is sometimes a challenge. The staff was outstanding, helpful and everyone of the five people that I talked with was polite and glad to to be there. A very good breakfast.
