We chose to stay at this property due to its no pets policy, as I am highly allergic to pets. After checking in, we noticed a guest walking around the lobby with a dog. When I complained, the front desk clerk had the nerve to talk back to me suggesting that this pet was some kind of a service animal-...

We spent two days there and never had to move. House keeping knocked on door around 8:30 wanting to know if we wanted service. I didn't count our dirty towels when I gave them to her and received a handful in return. I asked then if we needed to count and housekeeping said, na, don't keep track of it. After...

Everything here was great. I would only suggest replacing shower liners. They are affordable and an easy way to please guests that like extra clean bathrooms. (There was mold and hair inside our shower liner) staff super friendly. Would stay again.

Its around a 15 minute drive from the center of rapid city. You also get free tickets to the vortex bar from reception its well worth a view if your...

The staff was amazing, the room was nice, the free breakfast was good, the adjoining restaurant was accessible without going outdoors. The indoor water park was a blast and also accessible from inside the hotel. Probably would go elsewhere with just my wife and we wanted quiet. But great time for the family.

The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, lots of choices for breakfast, and the Watiki water park was right next door. It's conveniently located right off the freeway, and the great thing is it's very quite.

We stayed here during a trip to see Mount Rushmore. Staff were very pleasant and the room was clean and neat. The style of the Decor was slightly outdated, but pleasant. I enjoyed he fitness center and breakfast. Great room at a great rate. I would say here again.

When I checked in they stated I had already checked in. Have my room to someone with a similar name (is what I was told). Did not ask for any ID when I checked in. Free food ran out 45 minutes into time.

Staff was great, they really explained everything that you needed to know. Also had a smile on their face. Room was clean, beds were comfortable. Bathroom was a different story. Our faucet in the bath tub leaked, the hot was cold and cold was hot. There was no hot water, you were lucky if it was a warm water. When...
