Basic lodging with big entertainment on the side, just off I-90
When it comes to guest entertainment, Quality Inn 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.
Highlights
  • Conveniently located just off Interstate 90, close to Rushmore Mall and walking distance to numerous restaurants
  • Giant indoor swimming pool and waterfall hot tub
  • Free hot breakfast buffet served daily
  • On-site casino and lounge
  • Home to Arnold's Classic '50s Diner, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner
Location
Quality Inn Rapid City is conveniently located just off Exit 59 of Interstate 90, about three miles north of downtown and minutes from Rushmore Mall.

Rooms
The guest rooms at Quality Inn Rapid City stick to the basics: Wi-Fi, cable television and little more. Suites are available with additional amenities like refrigerators and Jacuzzi tubs.
Features
Quality Inn Rapid City is a AAA Two Diamond hotel. The hotel boasts one of the largest indoor swimming pools in the region, and a waterfall hot tub to boot. Billiards tables and an arcade room flank the pool area, making it a popular attraction for kids. There is a fitness center on site with cardiovascular and strength-training machines.
Dining
The Quality Inn Rapid City serves a free hot breakfast buffet 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).

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.

Not a good experience

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.

Good for family on a budget.

This facility has been around for a very long time. I remember it under a different name decades ago. The location is it's best feature. Easy access to interstate, Rapid City Regional airport, major city thoroughfares, shopping areas and dining. The staff I encountered were all upbeat, helpful, courteous and competent, a combo you don't always find in the travel industry. Especially in places of heavy tourist trade. I traveled alone to a wedding in the area and was placed in a ground floor room with excellent access to parking and away from the noisy pool and recreation area, which I much appreciated. This would be a fair choice for a family with small/young children on a modest budget who are looking primarily for a value priced vacation motel stay. Finally, despite the best efforts of the staff ( other than the location, they are the major asset of the motel ) one can not overlook the obvious age and wear to the buildings, grounds, carpets, beds, etc. It's functional, not fancy and don't expect luxury. Most of my fellow guests appeared to be large families and groups in town for a sports event. Would I stay there again and recommend it to others? Yes, with certain caveats as mentioned. Are there other places close by with equal, or better accommodations? Probably, but at a higher cost. However, for my purpose; the need for a convenient, safe, clean place to sleep, bathe and maybe have a doughnut, or muffin and coffee from the breakfast buffet before heading out, it was fine. Would I have stayed there with my wife? No, I would have paid more, much more, for an up to date facility and nicer amenities.

Shopping tip: Long walk from hotel

There is a large shopping mall which may be reached by a short drive, or long walk across the interstate. In addition to a large of number of stores, the mall has several dining facilities with acceptable to decent fare. There is also Big Box Store shopping available within a 2-5 block walk. Both of these areas may be reached via well paved sidewalks with street lights and traffic signals.

unclean

The lobby was beautiful which gave me high hopes for the rest of the place. But this was not the case. As we proceeded to our room on the other side of the building, the carpet was stained and filthy on the steps and in the hallway. In our room, there were flies on the beds and the bathroom had toilet paper in the bowl and dried urine on the seat and underside of the seat. The sheets were stained also. Not impressed! On the plus side, the staff was helpful during check in.

Condom wrapper

There was a condom wrapper right on my night stand. Which was disgusting. Now did they wash my sheets? The pool wasn't heated. Room was like 85 degrees. All together It wasn't a great experience.

Overnight Stay

It was a good experience for the most part. On the negative side I was not able to get connected to the internet, they did have a computer in the lobby but it was being used when I was there. On the positive side the room had no fridge but the woman at the front desk held some food for us in the hotel fridge. The breakfast buffet also looked delicious, lots of choices, was bummed we had made plans to meet friends for breakfast.

The breakfast was very good but I like coffee and juice in machine instead of trying to pour from the carrafes. The hot tub was broken so even though there was hot water no jets were working. The pool was very crowded. Did not have microwave or fridge in the room. The Millstone Restaurant walking distance was very good.

Rundown and dirty

Would not stay here. It is rundown and dirty. My daughter was afraid to take her socks off in the room. Rug was dirty and door did not feel secure. Sheets were not clean.

great location, didn't get the room we paid for

The main building is old, the air conditioning doesn't work, the "heated" pool is cold and murky. But the free breakfast is great and almost worth the entire cost of the hotel room. We paid extra (2 weeks in advance) for a poolside room but the hotel put us in an annex across the parking lot.
