Basic lodging with big entertainment on the side, just off I-90
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.
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
  • Hot breakfast buffet served daily (fees apply)
  • On-site casino and lounge
  • Home to Arnold's Classic '50s Diner, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner
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.
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.
Features
Ramada 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 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.).

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.

Awesome Staff

Being from Florida and Arizona we were cold. Even though it was the beginning of July the overnight temps were in low 50s. The staff was able to provide us with a small room heater so we could be more comfortable in our room. Thank you.

The least expensive way to vacation is to plan some meals with sandwiches, chips, fresh fruit, from the cooler.

Great location

Location was incredible. Excellent breakfast buffet. Room very comfortable. Most staff was excellent a couple of them were more interested in chatting with each other than help (front desk). Would definately stay again.

family trip

Room was clean and comfortable. Pool was clean and well cared for but very cold. Breakfast and staff was great. Other hotel staff was very helpful. Vending and ice machines were empty. Overall good stay. Good hotel for the price for a family of young children.
