Recent guest reviews

My experience was very good, easy check in, excellent value, good location, very good selections for Breakfast. I highly recommend.

Within walking distance to the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center and close to downtown. Clean, quite, central location.

Nothing bad to say, room was clean, staff was friendly, breakfast was delicious.

Hotel was extremely clean and comfortable. Staff was great!

It was ok but for the price don't expect nothing other the basic breakfast,. Hotel is aLittle outdated but good enough for a brief stay. The shower was cleaned but sink was outside the shower area so no room to put your clothes .

My family reserved two rooms during peak travel season. I didn't think to ask for rooms that were pet free. We were put in rooms that had had dogs in them. This triggered my husband's allergies and asthma. we had only been in our rooms about 20 minutes, and could tell we needed to change. At this point it was about 9:00 pm. I went to the front desk and asked if there was any possibility in changing our rooms. The staff was able to move us to a room that had not been checked into yet for those in my family that had allergies. The next morning they were able to move the other half of my family into the room next door. I know it had wasn't ideal to have to switch things around, but they did it with a smile. They are friendly to people with pets and friendly to those of us without pets, more specifically severe animal allergies. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Nice hotel excellent breakfast (crowded though) fun happy hour (free) close to highway. Only indoor pool

This was the first time we ever stayed at a Howard Johnson and will certainly be open to staying at this chain in the future.

Clean and comfortable after a long days driving. Close to food and highway.

Very nice place to stay and walking distance to down town. Ron

excellent value for the money. good location, hotel recently renovated. room was clean, bed comfortable, staff helpful. would stay again

Nice, clean, room. Comfortable beds. Had everything we needed and more. Would gladly stay there again.

This hotel was located right off the highway and was super clean! Two KING beds with a HUGE room. There is also a very large pool area with two hot tubs and a hot breakfast. HIGHLY recommend this hotel. It's not the HOJO's you may remember from the 80's!!

The hotel staff was very friendly and it was a clean environment. The hotel was close to many of the attractions that we wanted to do. However I would recommend bringing your own pillows.

This hotel was great. They had beer/wine one night in the dining area and the breakfast was spectacular. It was right next to downtown and off of the highway so it was easy getting everywhere. The pool was nice.

It was okay was great for the location and price Services were also good for the price

It was a straight shot from the airport (with one curve to the right at the end to the hotel off the feeder). No restaurants within walking distance but i could see walking to downtown in the summer days.

Great location within walking distance to the civic center

I've stayed at this hotel before on countless business trips to Rapid City visiting customers. It has a great location to my customers as well as the downtown area, for restaurants, etc. It offers good value, clean, comfortable rooms, friendly staff, nice breakfast options, and a beer and wine happy hour in the evening. I will stay here again.

Great staff, good facility, well located, Full, free breakfast, but no restaurant. well located for visits to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse monument, Air and Space museum at Ellsworth Air Force Base, and even Devil's Tower, Wyoming.
