The hotel was very clean and the staff was super friendly! Rooms were large and beds were very comfortable. We had two rooms for two at a great rate during the off-season. Will definitely be back our next Black Hills vacation!

We are here with the Road Scholar program and find the room clean, spacious, quiet and the property easily accessable to downtown Rapid City near great eateries. A lovely stroll through Memorial Park to the downtown district. A recommended stay.
