No frills, total convenience: Budget-friendly rooms right off I-90
On a budget? Motel 6 Rapid City offers some of the lowest rates around. The rooms are decidedly basic (bed, television, not much else) and the location blissfully convenient: just off Interstate 90, and minutes from the Rushmore Mall. The major attractions of the region are easy day trips from here, and the motel offers free parking on site (trucks get to park for free, too). Other conveniences include an outdoor pool (seasonal), laundry machines, and myriad dining options -- including Denny's, Minervas and Perkins Family Restaurant and Bakery.
Highlights
  • Conveniently located just off Interstate 90, near shopping, dining and entertainment
  • Outdoor heated pool (seasonal)
  • Free parking on site
  • Guest laundry facilities

Rooms

Features

Why Not Free WiFi?

This is the only place that I've ever stayed where they charge you $3 to use their WiFi. It should be a freebie included in the cost of the room like everywhere else. Other than that the place is Great.

Rapid City -- place to hang your hat

The hotel is a great remodel of an older property. The room was no-frills, but was a great overnight place for our group of 4 -- between touring the SD and WY landmarks and parks. Would recommend to the budget conscious.

Spartan but nice

Hotel room was very spartan and lacked any real detail, but the bed was very comfortable and one of the best night's sleep of the trip. Huge shower and decent cable.

Inexpensive place to stay

This is a hotel for staying overnight in, not for enjoying its amenities. It really doesn't have amenities, other than coffee in the morning. The people working at the desk were friendly and helpful. Everything worked--the a/c, the TV, the sink, the toilet, and the shower. The room was clean. There is no refrigerator. The room ought to be designed so that the sink is inside the bathroom, rather than just outside the bathroom in an alcove of the main room. But--and I say this as a compliment--I got what I paid for, and what I paid for functioned well. (This is not the Ritz, after all). The hotel is close to a main road and therefore to restaurants and other local merchants.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There's a Golden Corral buffet a short walk from the hotel. This restaurant complements the theme of inexpensive without amenities. A Wal-Mart and a Target are also nearby.

It was noisy because it was so close to the freeway. The floors were dirty and left our socks black

The beds are very hard and uncomfortable. I plan to never stay at a Motel 6 again.

Good location, good price

It was a good place to stay during my weekend in Rapid. The cable was a bit limited and for a non-smoking hotel there were 2 ashtrays in the room. I found that a bit odd. The staff was friendly and even when there was a power outage in that part of town for a short time they answered all my questions with patience and politeness. I've slept in more comfortable beds at other low cost hotels but it was terrible either. Overall had a pretty good experience.

Nice, Inexpensive Room

The hotel is located off of the Lacrosse Street exit, but it is sort of hidden. Since you can't see the hotel from Lacrosse Street once you've turned off the interstate, I'd recommend MapQuesting the route if you're a traveler outside of the local area. Aside from that, I found the hotel to be very nice and clean. The room looked to have been renovated not too long ago, and had sort of a retro-theme to it. All and all, I was quite pleased with how nice the hotel was since the rooms are some of the most affordable in Rapid City.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

There is a an Outback restaurant just a short drive from the hotel which has excellent food and service. You have to go north towards the Boston's restaurant and then turn left on that road. Take that road til it dead ends at a hotel and drive through the hotel parking lot til you get to the back of the hotel. There, the Outback will be. It's worth hunting for as it is one of the better places in Rapid City.
