Featured Rapid City Hotels

Make yourself comfortable at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Rapid City. You'll soon be driving through the scenic Black Hills along mountain switchbacks and past roadside waterfalls, en route to the granite faces of Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse Memorial.

A stay in our Rapid City hotels makes it easy to explore the area's most famous attraction, Mount Rushmore. Breathe in the piney scent of the Black Hills as you motor along twisting roads and past rushing streams to the Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Make time to see Rushmore's neighboring memorial, Crazy Horse, a sculpted Lakota warrior towering over mountain forests atop his granite steed. At the base of the colossal statue, the Indian Museum of North America highlights native culture with exhibits like a hand-painted Lakota tipi and Sioux pottery.

Immerse yourself in the natural grandeur of the Black Hills outside our Rapid City hotels. Crystalline stalagmites and stalactites glimmer in the narrow subterranean tunnels of Wind Cave National Park. Tour the cave's passageways, then head aboveground to see prairie dogs dart in and out of their grasslands tunnels. Immense herds of pronghorn, bison, elk, and deer frequent the 18-mile Wildlife Loop Road at Custer State Park at dawn and dusk, not far from our hotels in Rapid City. Towering granite pinnacles and spruce forests form an idyllic backdrop for a morning photography session.

Stay at our Holiday Inn Express hotels in Rapid City and discover South Dakota's four seasons of natural beauty, from the summer sounds of the Rapid City Bluegrass Festival to the stirring drumbeats and colorful dances of indigenous tribes at the Black Hills Powwow in October.

Pleasant stay at a welcoming hotel
By Sig26.2
Was passing through town and visiting the sights of SD, WY, NE and CO on a whirlwind tour of 1,803 miles in 4 days! The stay that night was very relaxing after a long day of jumping from destination [More] to destination (Badlands/Devils Tower/Sturgis/Deadwood/Lead and Mount Rushmore). Slept well that night and ate well that morning. A great combination if any! Thanks and look forward to visiting again with my family down the road sometime. More sights to see and friendly staff.

Comfortable overstuffed chair
By LeAnn954
I slept in the chair. It was fairly comfortable. A recliner would have been better. I did find the desk chair uncomfortable as the side arms squeezed my hips too tightly. The shower head was very [More] relaxing. I liked it alot. I really liked the location of our room to the elevator. The breakfast consisted of muffins, bagels, the best cinnamon rolls, scrambled eggs, sausage, ham, bananas, yogurt, boiled eggs, pancakes, juice, coffee. [Less]
Mt. Rushmore stop
By Rob95
Holiday Inn was not at the top of my list to stay at when we stopped. That changed after this stay. We had an issue with the room during the night that I brought to the Manager's attention the next [More] morning. She was so attentive and showed how she cared about her customers. The lobby was so inviting. We really enjoyed their indoor pool and the breakfast was the best we had at a hotel our entire trip. It even had cheese omelets. Thank you staff. [Less]
A good property
By wyomingwoman
This property is typical of a Holiday Inn Express. The rooms are clean and well appointed. The same for the grounds. The staff was okay. They could improve by saying hello when each person comes into [More] the building. This was one of the few motels open this time of the year and they were busy. All of the ice machines were broken. The hot tub and pool were both a great size and the hot tub a nice temperature. [Less]
Great location and comfortable room
By John 63
Our stay was great. Our room was very clean and quite, and the breakfast was very good. The staff was attentive when we had questions. We also liked the proximity to the town, easily within walking [More] distance to everything that we wanted to see. Overall we had a very pleasant experience. [Less]
Location, location, location
By jman305
Rapid City Rushmore Plaza is a great place to stay for ease of access to Rapid City and Black Hills region. Civic Center next door, walking distance to downtown and easy highway access to all the [More] region has to offer. This hotel has a very sharp appearance. I would stay again, especially for Civic Center activities. [Less]
