La Quinta Inn & Suites Rapid City

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice hotel grandkids loved the water park and pizza.

Room was exceptionally clean. Hotel was well maintained. Because it is attached to a water park there are a lot of families with children. We were very happy with it overall.

The room was comfortable. My dog really liked the area for dogs. And it was nice to see all the other dogs and their owners. Would definitely stay here again. And I will be looking for La Quintas from now on because of their friendly pet polocies.

Very convenient hotel. The staff was friendly, they made the most of their space. Breakfast was served in the Marcos pizza space which was large enough so that we didn't feel crowded while we ate. A real plus for families is that the hotel connects to an indoor water park!

The hotel was great, location was great. The kids love the watiki waterpark. They have Starbucks, marcos pizza and a 24hrs cafe in the same parking lot. Bed was comfortable and clean. I'm not giving a 5star excellent because when I checked in and they ask for my credit card (it was all paid in advance) I asked if they were putting a hold for incidentals and they said no (they did for $229) and at check out the front desk try to charge me for the waterpark pass (I paid cash when I got them). That apart great hotel manager LEAH, there at 11pm and 6am super helpful also.

Was disappointed that despite requesting a quiet room and floor, it was very noisy with children constantly slamming the door and running in the hall. My mistake.

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,

Thank you for your recent stay. We do apologize for any inconvenience you experienced during your stay. Being attached to a water park with excited families can make it difficult to know where the noise will be. We do our best to accommodate and again apologize you were unhappy.
