Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 109 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel!! We were only staying one night on the way through Rapid City, but wished we could stay longer. The staff was great and the beds were very comfortable. I stopped at the bar at 10:30 and was able to get a terrific drink, but no food. I thought this was unusual. August 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Will stay here again! Friendly staff, clean room, and a great location adds up to one thing: we will stay here again! August 26, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by great staff, needs updating. The living area suite furniture is very old and worn. Didn't feel comfortable with the cleanliness of the furniture. The bath and bedroom also need updating, The ceiling is in disrepair and stained. The pool water was very cloudy. August 26, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rapid City Rushmore Holiday Inn Great Hotel, However my room had a bad old smoke odor, I had my carpet steam cleaned and it still had a odor in the room. Food and Staff were excellent! August 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location, service and comfort. The hotel was located next to the Civic Center and near downtown. Lots of fun activities, shops and restaurants close by and the people were all super friendly. It was quiet, comfortable and the suite was perfect for visiting with local friends. August 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay This was my second visit in 3 years. Found the hotel the same but "tired". Is in need of updating. Otherwise my stay was great. The staff is all wonderful especially Savannah. The hotel is close to everything we needed to do. The meals we did have were very good, the bar area was very accommodating to our large group. August 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Personnel Twana is an outstanding supervisor--we were there 2 nights apart on a long drive on the second night and she helped us tremendously. A kind and sweet lady.We enjoyed the cocktails in the bar where we enjoyed our dinner. We are Texans and loved our stay with so many kind people,but we feel that Twana went above & beyond to help!!! August 20, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Stay, Even In Rally Week! We recently combined business with vacation in Rapid City. The hotel was much nicer than I expected, and I loved the layout of the lobby with terrace corridors for the rooms, which made it bright and airy. The boys loved the glass-in elevators. Location was excellent for touring the Black Hills. The room itself seemed a bit small for 2 adults and 2 children for a full week -- plus, it was 2 double beds instead of 2 queen beds -- but overall, it worked out OK. Service was excellent. And even though we stayed during Harley rally week, the noise level was fine. In fact, we hardly noticed them, except to admire the array of gorgeous bikes parked by the doors. My one quibble was the extraordinary price charged during rally week. It's why I rated this as "fair" in terms of value: It was the same hotel as the week before, but inflated prices for the rally week. But, that's economics and competition and we paid the rate knowing that it was inflated. We still had a good time, and would stay there again. August 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing service The employees at this hotel are the best that I have ever had. I have never had so many people be friendly, courteous, and willing to help. One of the best stays at a hotel ever. August 16, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by IN NEED OF A RENOVATION This Holiday Inn is need of a renovation. The rooms are very dark, outdated and have a strange smell. The rooms do not even come with a microwave or a refrigerator . You have to request a refrigerator if you want one. The bathrooms are small too.. The beds need to be replaced as they are worn and are not comfortable. Next time we are in Rapid City, we will stay at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites which has very comfortable beds and the rooms are very nice. We stood at this Holiday Inn because of the location (ease of getting to Mt. Rushmore etc.) However, for the price we paid, we expected more. Holiday Inn Rapid City - Rushmore Plaza should take some pointers from Holiday Inn Express and Suites chains. Here is hoping that in the near future this place gets a much needed renovation (not just replacing the light fixtures). It is time!! August 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 20 year veterans My wife and I have been frequenting this property for the past 20 years, and Sherri Beck, Dave, Peter, David, and Twana have always gone out of their way to make us more than comfortable. As for the food service; over the years we've experienced somewhat of a hit or miss. This year our dinners (herbal chicken over pen pasta) was a definite miss, while brunch with roast beef was a hit, go figure. Anyway, we love our annual stay at this Holiday Inn and recommend it highly. M&M LaDue August 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 family vacation Very thing was great. The staff was helpful and friendly. August 9, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by No Good Our arrival was approx 10pm and room service was not avaiable, there was bad odor in the room and hallway. Bedding was less desirable, pillows were small and not fluffy. I ask a simple request for ANY type of cutlery to consume my morning oatmeal and NON was brought to my room; upon check-out at 9am the coffee shop was closed so I couldn't purchase a cup of coffee before leaving to the airport. August 9, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service and Friendly Staff This hotel was just beautiful. Our stay was very relaxing and all of our needs, questions and concerns were met. If we needed directions they provided us maps and personal directions. The staff was always very friendly and greeted us with smiles. The Hotel was convenient to everything that we did Mt. Rushmore, Bad Lands, Downtown, Sturgis, etc. This was our second stay at this hotel and we will stay there again when we're back in Rapid City. We loved it. August 5, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Stay Pleasant staff, clean rooms. Would be great to keep the bar open until 1 or 2 a.m. (or room service for drinks) and to offer some food a bit later in the evening. Thanks for the great stay. August 3, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Passing through for one night Nice hotel. While I was there for just one night, I did notice how friendly the staff was. The two girls at the front desk were friendly and polite. Gift Shop employees were always helpful along with my server at breakfast. None of the employees sounded robotic (as they often do at hotels). The amenities in the rooms were fine, however bedframes, chairs, bathroom are due for a renovation. The room was a bit overpriced however the demand was there for that location so the rates were agreeable. I would stay there again. August 2, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Breakfast was great, staff was wonderful-front desk!! Excite room had broken machine that did not work, had to use the stairway for my excite but the staff was wonderful and breakfast was great, overall enjoyable stay. August 1, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by water cold gorgeous room, mainly FABULOUS STAFF - hot water was cold - not good for a weary traveler - room key took 3 trips to reception to get working - so tired at that point. Bartender AMAZING - restaurant - GREAT - door man - poor - did not mention my car lights were on - a guest told me - the doorman was looking directly at my car. I asked 3 people for feedback form - not person got it right - the janitor tried the hardest. Stay was 7/24 July 31, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay! A lovely place with friendly staff and delicious food. We enjoyed our stay immensely! July 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean Rooms Nice clean room upon check in. Asked for an in room fridge, and staff delivered a portable fridge in minutes. Thanks July 30, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Great location, but the property is in dire need of an update. No fridge, no microwave, stained carpet, out dated bathrooms, windows woukdn't open. Very expensive!!!!! July 28, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and good service It is nice to be close to the park. The rooms were clean and comfortable beds. The rooms could use some updates as the furniture is a little shabby. The sofa sleeper mattress was awful, you really should do something about that if you charge that much for the room. Most suites I have stayed in have a frig and microwave. Some even in a regular room, This should be easy for Holiday Inn to do. We were happy with the guest services as they brought us a microwave to the room and didn't even charge extra for it. But it is a pretty good place to stay and would stay there again. July 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Traveling We stayed here while moving our family across the country. We had never been to Rapid City or the area before and we choose this hotel because it was pet friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It is a bit on the expensive side however it is a first class operation. July 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel A very nice hotel. Everything went well with this hotel from check in to check out. Although we were not given free bottled water. I like the idea of the table lamps with electrical outlets. It is so easy to plug charges and the cpap machine of my husband. Will recommend to my friends. July 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super Hotel! I stay in this hotel everytime i come to Rapid City. The staff is super helpful and very respectful. i have always been greeted with a smile everytime I check in, walk in, leave for the morning, and also check out. I will always stay here everytime i visit Rapid City. July 23, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by overall experience good We enjoyed our visit to Rapid City and this hotel. Maid service was a little lacking as they seem to not complete the job...bed not completely made, table tops not wiped off, glasses not replaced with clean and never vacuumed during our stay. Every day was a different issue. And none of it was a big deal, but noticeable. July 21, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service!! While this is an older location... it is located in a Good Location. close to downtown and anything you may need. The Service at the front desk is fantastic. the Wifi at this location is Good The food in the Grille Cafe is Good The room could have been cleaner... I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. I would stay again ! July 20, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Enjoyable Great place to stay...great location..quiet...room was very comfortable and staff was very helpful. July 20, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Full service hotel with great staff The hotel was comfortable and efficient even though busy. We checked in, settled in our room and went out to explore. I asked for a city map at the desk and got a great one - it would be good to offer one to everyone at check-in. The park between the hotel and the city was pretty, with a lovely rose garden (in July). July 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic stay and great central location Stayed for 10 days with my daughter while seeing many of South Dakotas natural wonders. Great central location with much to offer! Staff was very friendly made you feel like everyone was more than happy to see you no matter the time of day or how busy they were at the time. Building and grounds always in peak shape. Look forward to staying here again! Would highly recommend! July 16, 2013
