Grand Gateway Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Too many Indians staying here. They over take the pool and have no respect for other people. The last time we stayed here one of them puked on the sidewalk right outside of our entrance to the hotel wing. Other than that... not a bad hotel. Probably not going to stay here again. We will try one of the other hotels with a pool since there are a lot in the area.

Heat lamp in bath room is a nice feature for cold mornings.

The central location to travel the area was perfect! The staff was awesome!! The room was kept clean every day.

The hotel is convenient to the airport and close to the expressway. Arrived early room not ready which was understandable, promised a text when ready. Waited never heard from hotel or sent message. Got to room had a musty smell with carpeting in need of cleaning, stains in several spots and replacement needed. Beds were relatively comfortable pillows were not. Room was not cleaned over night, and had to request when we returned late that night but no one available to clean. We like older hotels and most of the folks were friendly but basic cleaning there are no excuses. Would not stay here again and not recommend.

It was a great experience. I would definitely stay again!!

We had never stayed at this hotel before and were pleasantly surprised. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful on checking in and checking out. We had a room on the far end closest to the freeway so expected lots of freeway noise all night, but really didn't hear it much. It was great to hop right on the freeway from the hotel and head for home. Reasonably priced.

Close to sturgis friendly hotel staff clean accommodations. Near everything.

Our stay was great. Only thing we did not like was we found things under the bed that were not our stuff which tells me the room was not really cleaned well

Spacious comfortable room. The microwave oven and refrigerator were not plugged into a wall outlet, but that was easily fixed. Friendly staff and a convenient location close to the interstate. Pleasant stay overall.

great experience for a baseball tournament. Easy to get around Rapid City from this location

Room had a nice sitting area and was well lit. Motel had plenty of carts for getting our luggage to the room. We ate in the sports bar to watch the Stanley cup playoffs. The food was good, but I would have liked larger portions. The motel has a large family friendly pool.

Good value. Nice hotel, close to highway and shopping area

It was an awesome stay. With great rooms and pool area.

What a great find. $43 a night and it was very clean, wonderful big rooms. Really nice staff

Conveniently located, great value, friendly staff, nice décor, clean.

The staff was very friendly. The room was very clean. The pool was great and had a 130' slide. Only real concern was the hotel felt a little dark and outdated. Not a deal breaker and overall it was very clean. It had a Perkins restaurant attached so eating meals was super convenient. Booked through trivago so got a great deal!

The room was really cheap; so was the service. We arrived after 4pm. Even though there were no a long line, we waited 20 minutes before checking in. Had to contact the front desk to get refrigerator and microwave plugged.The swim pool was a bit too cold for me and my kid. The worst experience was the fire alarm in the middle of the night, and the staff gave no explanation about the incident.

Hotel staff was 50/50. Arrived early but room was not ready. Staff was to text us when available but never did. Room and hotel are out of date. Two chairs in room of which one was broken and the other was worn out. Went downstairs to play ping pong and staff wanted $10.00 cash as deposit for paddles, then $0.50 for the ball. Needless to say, we did not play. As I informed the staff, charge my room if I didn't return the paddles. We went for a walk instead of playing ping pong. Popcorn ceiling, worn out furniture and carpet all need updating. If we visit this area again we would chose another hotel.

Centrally located to most of the important attractions. Kids love the pool.

House keeping didn't come to our room between days even though they stopped at the other rooms on the floor. it was pretty weird
