    Exceptional 10.0
    Great Hotel, Great Value!
    The hotel was easily accessible, the rooms were large and clean, the beds were comfortable, and the showers were hot. The elevator makes a funky noise when it stops, but it didn't seem to have any malfunctions. Veronica at the front desk was WONDERFUL! She was personable and friendly, and helpful with suggestions of places to eat and things to do. We enjoyed our stay in Rapid City!

    Great Vacation Stay
    Great location to venture out and see many of the sights South Dakota has to offer. Also likes the immediate area of location for restaurants and other needs.

    Good family trip
    Enjoyed our stay. Used the constant fan so we wouldn't hear hallway noise. Pool was nice but frequently towels were missing. Breakfast was good although it was hard to find a table.

    Very Good 8.0
    This was a very nice hotel and I would have given it a higher rating except the elevator was broken and we had a fourth floor room.

    Fair 4.0
    Won't be staying here again
    One of the worst continental breakfasts we have ever had! The breakfast room was extremely tiny, there were only a few people down there when we went down to eat but all the little tables were occupied and so crammed together, others had to stand and eat things out in the foyer. The ladies at the front desk were very nice. Wifi would connect but there was no internet - none of our phones were able to get internet (even though the wifi signal was connected), we had to turn off wi-fi and use data if we wanted to access the internet. Parking is not intuitive because it is right near another hotel and we had to drive around the hotel and back again to even locate the front entrance - no place to park and check in under a roof like other hotels. Rooms need better cleaning and upkeep - too much dust in the air and they need to clean the filters in the air conditioner (honestly, most hotels need to do this). Photos make it look like a newer hotel, but seems like it needs a refresh inside. Shower head did not put out that much water and it was like a cheap motel shower. Drain in bathtub was very slow to drain and when we called for service no one came at the time promised. Only saving grace was the fun the kids had in the pool. Fortunately, we used a free night to stay here, even so, the cost was not worth the value of this place.
