My wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night while in route to visit a friend in Sturgis. We were able to book one of the Queen bedrooms. We pulled up to the entrance and were greeted by the friendly valet ($15.00 a day to park). We walked inside to check in and noticed their beautiful lobby. We...

Thank you for this feedback as it helps us see what we are doing right and where we can improve. We can use it as a tool to help with training and our continued growth. As a historic facility, the rooms are all completely different configurations from each other which can sometimes make them a bit more on the cozy...

The Hotel Alex Johnson nestles modern updates inside a historic landmark amid views of the surrounding Black Hills. Conveniently located in the heart of downtown and just minutes from national treasures. Friendly, young, vibrant staff, especially the Valet kids Savoy, Tim, and Dillon.

The downtown location is very convenient, but this is an old building that they have tried to modernize. Maybe we are spoiled these days, but the rooms are cramped for more than 2 people, and the service was poor. The last day our room was not cleaned at 4:30 pm, and cleaning seems to be little more than making the...

This hotel has a ways to go to warrant the price we paid for a 2 bedroom suite. I get the idea of a historic property when you visit the lobby or the Irish pub just off of the lobby. Very quaint! Even the elevator is reminiscent of older times. But the rooms fall far short. You expect some historic...

I lived in Rapid City during my college days, and the Hotel Alex Johnson has always been an iconic landmark on the Rapid City skyline. I used to frequent the lobby pub Paddy O'Neils a good amount. Over the years the hotel itself I think has come and gone in terms of financial strength and level of service/quality. Now with...
