About three blocks from Rapid City Regional Hospital and 20 minutes from Mount Rushmore, Travelodge Rapid City caters to hospital visitors and sightseers alike. Guests can help themselves to fresh soup and cookies in the lobby every afternoon, and a number of restaurants lie within walking distance. All of the rooms underwent renovations and about half of them have outdoor balconies. Bonus: During warmer months, guests can use the outdoor pool and hot tub.

Location

Travelodge Rapid City sits on the south side of Rapid City, about a mile from downtown and less than three blocks from Rapid City Regional Hospital. Black Hills National Forest is about six miles away.

Rooms

All rooms have been renovated and feature complimentary Wi-Fi and cable satellite television with free HBO. Some come with microwaves and refrigerators, and about half have outdoor balconies. Travelodge Rapid City also has three suites: one with a Jacuzzi and the others with two bedrooms each.

Property features

Travelodge Rapid City puts out a free continental breakfast spread with hot perks like Belgian waffles and biscuits and gravy. Guests can also dine next door at Colonial House Restaurant and Bar, which serves American-style fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Every afternoon the hotel treats guests to fresh soup in the lobby -- chicken enchilada, say, or vegetable beef -- along with just-baked cookies. Travelodge Rapid City courtyard has an outdoor pool and hot tub (seasonal).

Visiting Mt. Rushmore

Breakfast was really bad. The quality is not there. Found a couple of bugs in the room, the carpet was stained. It look like blood, but I was told it was hair tint. The staff was helpful and friendly. The grandson didn't like it either.

Nice Place!

Gets the job done. Nice staff! It was next to a road, so not an ideal location, but the restaurant next door is great and everything was clean and tidy.

Staff was very up beat and helpful. I didn't need much, but everything I asked about or for, they provided me with the answer. The room was nice and relaxing which we did a lot of in it.

Chilly

Unexpected cold snap left the room frigid as the AC/Heater did not work in the heat mode. Did not find out til 5am. Heater would not have functioned well at the temps anyways and the staff should have had the facility boiler going for the baseboard heating system. Otherwise not a bad value.

Inexpensive place to stay in Rapid City

If your looking for a place to sleep the night this will be the place to stay. Note if you need a refrigerator ask for it before or when you arrive. Air conditioner is a window unit that is mounted in the wall, may not keep the room cool when it dips below the temp setting outside, open the fresh air vent. Make sure there is a screen or filter to keep the bugs out!

Actually a MOTEL

Very disappointing to arrive and find that the Best Western wasn't much better than the motels we passed over. The rooms were small, noisy, uncomfortable and dated; the pillows were even the size of throw pillows! And don't get your hopes up for breakfast...

Everyone will recommend Colonial House for breakfast, but drive to town for Tally's. The food is way better!
