Very nice, clean, pleasant place to stay. Good size room for a family of 5. Pool hours are great open till midnight. Breakfast was amazing and kids just loved the place. So also very kid friendly. Also a walk away from a cute strip of shopping and splash pad play area. We enjoyed it very much.

This is a very nice, comfortable, clean hotel. Breakfast is not included, but there is an on-site restaurant as well as a small convenience store available 24-hours. The room was clean and odor free, and though the bathroom was small, it was fine for an overnight stay.

Clean hotel with excellent skilled staff. We arrived early and they let us go to a room with a king size bed. We only had reserved two queen beds. Young Man who was our lunch server was very well mannered and new the area as what it offers.

It is a very beautiful hotel. The new lounge was very nice, the staff was very friendly. The dinner was excellent and filled me up. The room was huge and seemed a bit much for one person but definitely gave a sense of home while on the road.The only down side to my stay was that once I got checked... More

We stayed here for two nights with our dog, no issues with check-in. The hotel staff was great except a slight delay in service at the restaurant for breakfast. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable and the fridge and microwave were very helpful. The park across the lot was a huge help with the dog... More

The hotel is closed to Mt Rushmore. The receptionists here would give great advice on nearby attractions, such as Mt Rushmore and Devil's Tower. The bartender is also friendly and helpful. As an IHG Spire Elite member, I got a complimentary room upgrade which is my best experience in all Holiday Inns. The lobby is great with an indoor fountain.

I would have given this stay 4 stars with the only downside being the price $200 plus for a holiday inn is a little steep, nicely remodeled, clean and spacious rooms. The problem started when I was going to be charged for breakfast that I understood to be included. After inquiring at the fro t desk with a nasty employee... More

The hotel was one of only a few that would accommodate our family of six. The location is central to the tourist attractions. I was very impressed by the size of the room, the cleanliness, and the service of the staff. The rooms were quiet and very very comfortable.
