Family Trip

The room was clean and comfortable. It was cleaned well each day. The location was good on the highway to Rushmore and many other attractions so the city traffic didn't make a difference. The breakfast was cereal and muffins but there is a very good restaurant next door that's good for any meal.

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.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

The hotel is located near shopping centers and close to ideal places to visit. For the amount charged the hotel is highly recommended to spend a couple of nights.

First time in Rapid City

A place to sleep at night. Spent the days on the road doing all the tourist things, but really missed the fridge and microwave. It was quiet with a couple restaurants within walking distance. Had a good continental breakfast. (loved the biscuits and gravy) We stayed in the older section which had a window air conditioner and we had to turn it down to 68 to cool the room. I'm a big fan of the Best Western chain, look for it as my first choice when traveling, but overall I would not stay in this room again. (maybe in the hotel newer section)

Restaurant in the packing lot is OK but expensive. Just down the road there are more affordable places to eat.

Long Weekend for two

This Hotel offered a free breakfast buffet. Unfortunately they did not have enough food to cover the whole serving time. We found ourselves going out for breakfast and not being able to take advantage of the free one if w should sleep in a little.
