La Quinta Inn & Suites Rapid City

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I have only positive comments about the hotel and staff but as it is connected to a popular water park, I would recommend it for families with children rather than single adults on business or personal visits because of the high volume of foot traffic to and from the water park.

good enough, cost a bit more than average but great customer service!

Just wanted to lay my head down and Russ and the staff make sure I was able to do that with very easy accommodations

Staff was gracious and assisted with a quick check in though I was early!

Checked in with no problems, was given the choice to opt out of the waterpark fee, which was nice as we weren't planning on going to the waterpark. Grandson went and he had a blast!

We had a great time at the water park. Most of the staff was awesome except for a few. And unfortunately those are the ones I remember. Drinks are extremely overpriced at the bar. But we were there for the water park and it never disappoints.

I think this hotel chain will be my top pick going forward.

Comfortable chairs, microwave, and refrigerator, but no freezer.

Friendly staff, very helpful. Clean rooms and very pet friendly. Definitely worth the stay. The Waterpark is great fun for the kids

Easy access and it is a new hotel it was very clean, quiet,and comfortable The indoor water park is great for children that have been in the car for a long trip The hotel has free parking, breakfast and WIFI

Everything was very nice as far as room. Comfortable bed, clean, refrigerator and microwave added nice surprise. Staff was helpful. Good location to airport. For reasonable cost. Only disappointing thing was cost of drinks and snacks in hotel snack bar. Could be alittle more reasonable.

Clean comfortable stay. Kind of far from town. I was not impressed with the food. The staff were excellent.

I really enjoyed this hotel, I would prefer not to stay at busy times because waterpark can be overcrowded.

Large room with lots of counter space in bathroom. Water park for the kids with water slide that runs right through the fun bar,

The hotel is a little older and could use a refresh on the carpets and furniture. Having the hotel attached to a water park would be neat for kids.

La Quinta in Rapid City is a beautiful hotel with bright colors everywhere, giving an over all friendly atmosphere. The food in the hotel restaurant was fantastic and they delivered to the room when we didn't feel like going downstairs. My only complaint would be that the water park was packed full, but what else would you expect on a weekend? Over all, great time.

Best price we could find in town, nice place. Everything seemed new, clean. Thanks!

Awesome the best omelets for breakfast and the bar was typical

Gave us an free upgrade due to bad ac unit. Very good customer service. Bed was comfortable. Would stay again. We went out to eat resturaunt was kinda pricy for what it was. Free breakfast though.

Very nice hotel for the price. Has a nice restaurant inside as well as watermark. Staff very helpful at providing info.
