Friendly staff, all-hours food and a giant waterslide
Half a mile from Rushmore Mall, the Grand Gateway Hotel lures guests with its elaborate indoor pool area and all-hours dining. Rooms feature thoughtful details like allergy-free pillows and windows that open and close. Four national parks and monuments lie within a 90-minute drive -- Badlands, Wind Cave, Mount Rushmore and Jewel Cave -- and the Black Hills National Forest begins less than 10 miles to the west.
Highlights
  • Convenient to major area attractions like Mount Rushmore National Memorial and Custer State Park
  • Indoor pool area includes a hot tub, arcade, pool tables and 130-foot waterslide
  • On-site Perkins Family Restaurant and Bakery serves a full menu and is open at all hours
Location
Grand Gateway Hotel sits just off Interstate 90, a few miles from downtown and a half mile from Rushmore Mall. Mount Rushmore is about a 40-minute drive from here, and the hotel is also convenient to the other major attractions of the region.
Rooms
Starting at 365 square feet, the rooms at Grand Gateway Hotel deliver standard amenities (free Wi-Fi, work desks, laptop-accommodating safes) with a touch of elegance (handsome wood headboards, one-off table lamps). The superior and deluxe rooms have sitting areas, and suites come with separate dining and living space.
Dining
The on-site restaurant, Perkins Family Restaurant and Bakery, serves a full menu 24 hours a day, but is best known for its breakfast offerings: the "secret recipe" buttermilk pancakes are a huge hit, and the three-egg omelets earn high marks too. Also located at the Grand Gateway Hotel, Cheers Sports Lounge and Casino serves the full Perkins menu and draws a mix of sports fans and entertainment-seekers.
Recreation
Kids gravitate to the indoor pool area, which features a 130-foot waterslide, hot tub, arcade and pool tables. Grand Gateway Hotel guests can order food from Perkins here and eat poolside. The hotel also has a fitness center with free weights and basic cardiovascular equipment.

great experience

This place is great. Our room was clean and welcoming.The Perkins restaurant attached to the hotel was very convenient to access if you need to get food and don't want to drive anywhere. The food at Perkins was great also. Overall, we had a great time and wonderful stay at this place. Will definitely stay here again.

Blackhills

The rooms have poor ventilation. The humidity in the room caused the sheets and our clothes to feel damp. The humidity is also trapped in the carpet causing a terrible mildew odor in the room. Each day we left In the morning the window was open to dry out the room. Upon returning we discovered the maids closed the window thus trapping the humidity once again! Overall the rooms comfort was terrible due to the humidity level.

Comfortable and homey

I was impressed with our room right when we walked in. The colors, art work, lamps etc. were nothing like what you usually see in a hotel room. We were just driving through Williams, AZ on the way to our destination, and it was a very comfortable sleep. It is right off the Interstate, so very convenient.
