"fun time in a very good hotel"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 20, 2014
dandhoct28 | Mitchell, South Dakota
We booked this trip last minute to visit family in town and let the kids blow off some steam in the water park. When we arrived the front desk staff was courteous and very personable. Our room was clean and everything seemed to be in good working order, as was the rest of the hotel. One really nice thing was the retractable clothes line that is installed in the shower it was nice to have a designated place for our wet swimsuits. The breakfast bar was above average as well. Our only problem that we had was the crib left in our room was very dirty it looked like their was dried spit up all over the mattress. Unfortunately their wasn't a replacement crib however, to be fair I asked a little late for a new one and when they told me that they didn't have one they did try to offer me some sheets to cover it up with but it was a little too gross for that even. We utilized room service and though a little steep on price (as expected) the food was good. And last but not least the kids LOVED the water park. Overall we had a pretty good stay.

We spent 4 nights at the this hotel which is located at the south end Rapid City and is perfectly located as a base point for seeing the sights. It has a huge water park so if you are traveling with children, they will not be bored. Close to Reptile Gardens, as well as a quick exit to all the other attractions the Black Hills of South Dakota has to offer. Highly recommended!

"Great hotel"

This hotel gets a 5 for Clean, Convenient, Congenial, Comfortable and Connected 9no password required for WIFI). The staff was outstanding and friendly. There was a great variety at breakfast, free breakfast. It was hosted in the attached restaurant so there was plenty of tables and space. Although we did not use the waterpark, it looked like a great perk.Would definately stay here again.
