Overview

When it comes to guest entertainment, Ramada Rapid City has no shortage of options. Kids flock to the multi-use pool area (complete with an arcade room and pool-side billiards tables), while adults gravitate towards the on-site Reunion Lounge and Casino, a hub of big-screen televisions, dartboards, pizza and wings. The hotel sits just off Interstate 90, near the Rushmore Mall and a short walk from numerous restaurants (Perkins, Outback, Minervas), and grants easy access to the signature attractions of the region.

Location

Ramada Rapid City is conveniently located just off Exit 59 of Interstate 90, about three miles north of downtown and minutes from Rushmore Mall. Guests can walk to shopping and dining from here, and the larger attractions in the area -- Mount Rushmore, Sturgis, Historic Deadwood -- lie within an easy drive.

Dining

The Ramada Rapid City serves a hot breakfast buffet (at cost) every morning. Guests can also visit the on-site Arnold's Classic '50s Diner for breakfast, lunch and dinner (think hostesses in poodle skirts, burgers and shakes on the menu). As well, the on-site Reunion Lounge and Casino serves drinks and tasty bar food (pizzas, wings, etc.).

Rooms

The guest rooms at Ramada Rapid City stick to the basics: Wi-Fi, cable television and little more. Suites are available with additional amenities like refrigerators and Jacuzzi tubs.

Good for the price

Would recommend Tue, Aug 18, 2015
Price was good, room needs to be updated. People outside were loud. Went to the bar, requested 4 different drinks before I found one that they had the alcohol to make it, bartender said they just opened and wasn't stocked up just yet. We would stay again if they updated room (carpet, peeling stucko, furniture). Looked like a good place for families with large indoor pool, arcade adult swim from 10pm-2am nice size hot tub.

Bad room

Would not recommend Mon, Aug 17, 2015
There was no air-conditioning. I hear person complaining when I arrived so it was a wise-spread issue. The place looks on the verge of being pretty run-down.

Was a Place to sleep

Would not recommend Tue, Jul 21, 2015
The girl who checked me in was rude, and should not be working there or in any kind of customer service job? I asked couple simple questions about my credit card and she huffed and puffed and told me either I give her my card or leave? Because of her i will never stay there again. i will spend extra money for other motels if i have to in future.

Good Stay

Would recommend Mon, Dec 29, 2014
It was very obvious which part of the hotel was new and which was old. The older rooms seemed dingy. We stayed our second night in the newer rooms and they were much more comfortable and relaxing.

Would not recommend Wed, Aug 27, 2014
Horrible. Temporary AC hooked up into the room by a dryer duct, very noisy and every time the compressor kicked on you couldn't hear anything and it didn't do much to cool the room. Texture on walls looked like a 6 year old had done it and the painting was done by his younger brother. Yellow walls with white trim and yellow was on the trim and white was on the walls. Some trim coming off. Carpet in front of the sink was ripping and coming up. The ceiling paint above the shower was falling down. Mold in bathroom (probably because AC didn't work - not healthy). Why Ramada can't get a reservation correct is beyond me. Second Ramada that I booked two months in advance and got a double queen and ordered a king. No refrigerator. When I talked to the front desk they said they were under new management and undergoing remodeling and if I had been there two months earlier we wouldn't have even had temp AC (and that is supposed to make me feel better about this?) She suggested if we want to come back to wait 1 and a half years so all is fixed. That would be May 2016 but to be sure I would wait till Dec 2016. I would not recommend this place even to an enemy.

Dining

Dining close by. Mostly close drive but many options.

Not a good experience

Would not recommend Wed, Aug 20, 2014
Room was not cleaned after our first night there, after our second night room was cleaned but the beds were not made, pool closed early for kids, never enough towels at the pool or available for the room, cots were unavailable, breakfast was not very good and then they charged for it on the weekends.
