Arrived later than we,d hoped. A well stocked snack bar provided some tasty snacks,a warm welcome at the bar and very comfortable beds made it a good start to our visit.

Very disappointing. It was intolerably hot everywhere in this hotel. The downstairs bar was very inadequate. Not one decent whisky to be found. Every piece of furniture in the bar and lobby was so uncomfortable it was hard to believe. It genuinely felt like they didn't want us to stay too long. The in hotel restaurant food was very sub-par...

Great experience here! We were asked which floor we wanted to stay on at check in. We took the 8th floor. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable.It was great to have a fridge and microwave in the room as well! Definitely got this one as a steal of a deal from Hotwire!

We stayed at this property during the stock show....never again. Although it's a beatiful property with a perfect location the all night parties that the hotel allows is ridiculous. Each night until 2:00am all we could hear was music and screaming coming from the downstairs lobby.

The Thanksgiving lunch at the Holiday Inn was a great experience. The hotel staff were warm and welcoming and the food was a good spread of everything you would expect for a Thanksgiving meal! Highly recommended if you are looking for a fulfilling Thanksgiving lunch in Rapid City!

This is an upscale Holiday Inn with full service, shuttles, swimming pool, hot tub, dinning room, bar, and games room. I had a large suite on the eight floor with a sitting room bar sink, microwave, and a small refrigerator. I was speaking at the convention Center and it was right next to the hotel
