Part hotel, part water park -- a retreat on the east side of town
Got kids? La Quinta Inn and Suites Rapid City has the ultimate playground. Home to the largest indoor water park in the state, the hotel boasts 30,000 square feet of aquatic play space (fees apply). Parents can unwind at the on-site restaurant, Sliders Bar and Grill, where a 10-foot video wall plays the latest games and tiny burgers are a must. Mount Rushmore National Memorial is an easy drive from here (27 miles), and guests can also motor to the other major attractions of the area, including Crazy Horse Memorial and Custer State Park.
Highlights
  • Hotel connects to WaTiki Indoor Water Park, a 30,000-square-foot playground with water slides, a lazy float river and more
  • Sliders Bar and Grill, an on-site restaurant with a horseshoe-shaped bar and massive video wall
  • Guests enjoy free continental breakfast every morning
  • Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a 27-mile drive away
Location
La Quinta Inn and Suites sits just off Interstate 90, about four miles east of downtown Rapid City. It is two miles from Rushmore Mall, and convenient to just about every attraction in the region, from Sioux Park (six miles) to Crazy Horse Memorial (40 miles).
Features
Accessible for a fee, the adjoining WaTiki Indoor Water Park draws families with a lazy float river, arcade, lounge and waterslides galore. All rooms and suites at the La Quinta Inn and Suites come with free Wi-Fi. The on-site fitness center has a treadmill, elliptical, recumbent bike and strength-training machine.
Dining
A 10-foot video wall makes the on-site Sliders Bar and Grill a popular hangout for sports fans. Popular menu items include gourmet pizzas and -- of course -- slider sandwiches. The La Quinta Inn and Suites serves free continental breakfast every morning: waffles, hot and cold cereals, pastries, fruit and more.

Not for the light sleepers.........

Staff was very friendly and the hotel itself is in a very convenient location but rooms leave something to be desired. Inasmuch as this is a waterpark hotel, there were lots of kids(and adults) running around and being noisy. There were also several dogs on our floor who occassionally barked. If you want a quieter hotel after a day of sightseeing in the area, you best look elsewhere.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Several chain type restaurants within a few exits (this LaQuinta is right off I-90, X-61. There is also a good size mall & Wal*MArt at X-59. Easy access to jump to all local attractions (Rushmore, Badlands, Crazy Horse, Black Hills, etc)
