Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Petro451 Great place to stay while seeing the area
Nice clean room and everything worked. Great breakfast! Besides an annoying barking dog in the next room; it was a perfect stay.

The front desk suggested a local eating establishment that turned out to be a great experience! She also provided directions to several local attractions and to the airport which were extremely beneficial! The breakfast buffet was very appetizing with a good variety of staples. I would definitely recommend this specific hotel to anyone based upon the overall experiencee that we had!

Breakfast Attendant was outstanding both mornings
we ate there. Food was hot, fresh and plentiful and
full. I was so impressed I tipped her both mornings.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by flip1992 Less-than-exemplary service
Everything started with our room (along with several others) not being ready for check-in even after 5pm. The desk clerk blamed a "housekeeping walkout." The front desk staff said that they would call us when our room was ready (we were headed out to get dinner), but they didn't call us. However, it was ready when we came back from dinner.
The next evening we arrived back after a full day of sightseeing and our room cards didn't work. I went to get them re-coded and again they didn't work. I went down again and was given NEW cards, and again they didn't work. Only then did the desk clerk offer to go up to the room, and once she opened the room with her card, then our cards worked. Apparently, even though I had already asked three people about how easy our three consecutive reservations would be (free night, points, and paid night) and having been assured three times that everything would be fine, it wasn't. Only then was I told that I would need to fill out a new info sheet each night and we'd need to replace our cards again the next evening.
Finally, the last straw was the last day, after a long day of sightseeing, we came back to find one of our two beds unmade, with a card announcing that "due to personal items in the bed, we are unable to remake this bed." Strange that our pillows didn't prevent them from remaking the bed the night before.
Also, the bathroom door squeaked and was unable to be locked.

A little expensive and under staffed...However the staff was incredible and extremely considerate and helpful. They went out of their way for me and my daughter all 8 days of my stay. Thank you so much. I had a wonderful experience.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ronjon725 Not a good choice
I would avoid this property at all costs.
Furnishings are worn and dated. Carpet throughout the hotel appears soiled. Maid service was either late or not at all.
I stayed for business purposes and there is absolutely no work space for that type of function.
The staff at check-in appeared completely lost. a routine check-in turned into a 20 minute wait.
Would have moved after the first night but no other hotels were available in the area.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by rroberts Do not stay here
The staff at this hotel should be replaced the quality of care they show does not fit the hospitality of others in this area.
I am not a fan of complete change but at this location I would recommend it.

We had someone in the hospital which was basically across the street so wanted to stay in the closest hotel. I would give them an A for everything but the price. Very spendy even with the hospital rate which was basically nill. The gal at the front desk even said their hospital rate was terrible in the summer

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rhyno17 What a mess!
I was there 4 nights. Staff always very polite and responded with statements that they would pass the issue on to the management and or maintenance, but nothing was ever done. First big issue, never worried about reserving non smoking rooms at a HI Express before did not know any had smoking rooms. Hall and room carpets through out were disgusting and left the bottoms of feet or socks or shoes blackened. Was told three times (Okay each time it was a different staff member) they did not know about the leaky ice machine that kept the first floor hall carpet soaked and stinky or that the carpet was wet. Guest laundry was basically useless three 45 minute cycles in the dryer, left simple t shirts still wet and forget jeans they still dripped. Breakfast each day had one or more normal offerings (eggs, sausage, cinnamon rolls bread for toast, low fat or skim milk or apple juice) unavailable. I love HI Express had great nights in Alliance Nebraska, And Buffalo Wyoming on this trip also and will go to other properties again (Raton NM and Odessa TX, tomorrow and and the next night to be exact) But not this one. Holiday Inn Express these people are damaging your good name!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DISAPPOINTED DAUGHTER Expensive
I wanted to treat my Mom to a fancy hotel the night before she had surgery. We found this one to be very nice but there wasn't anything grand or elegant about it. Because it cost about double the price of those nearby, I expected something special. This was simply overpriced. It was very conveniently located to the hospital and surgery center.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by monicadcs OK hotel, but definitely not sound proof
This was a fine hotel, other than the fact that the air conditioner in our room was very noisy and the thermostat did not seem to be working properly. It is also kind of an older construction and definitely not sound proof. If you are lucky enough to be on the top floor or not to have people running on the room above you, or not to be in the room right next to the ice machine, it should be fine.
Other than that, we did get the service and quality we expect at a Holiday Inn hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Amanda713 Not worth it
When I called to reserve I asked if it had a pool and hot tub, insanely small pool and no hot tub . People across the hall from us smoked and was like it was in our room , I have asthma as was extremely uncomfortable . Also when I called I was told it was newly remodeled , only thing new was the hall carpet . I've said at many holiday inns and it didn't have the newer healthy breakfast options . Bathroom was dirty , hair on washcloth and tub . Stain on the sheets . Not even close to be worth the price .

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tragus52 Value for overall hotel room and services
Hotel was in need of a major renovation, room had a recliner that looked like it came from a garage sale, was afraid to sit in it. When I checked in on Sunday evening, I was informed that the remaining 3 nights of my stay would increase by $50. While I understand that the price is reflective of what the market will bare, however $50 a night increase is not what I would consider the norm. If this were any other business, I would consider this to be gouging. Add some ammenities, if you want to charge such outrageous fees.
If I return to Rapid City, I will choose other accommodations!

Our room air conditioner was noisy and the vibration woke us up often during the night. The problem was never resolved. After a long day of enjoying the beauty of the area, sleep was needed but a quiet, peaceful room was never there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ScotyCO Basic HI Ex
The hotel was a basic level holiday inn express. I've been to quite a few others and this one had all the basic options (no closet door, safe sitting in the room on a pedestal). It was up to HI Ex standards and clean and relatively comfortable. We were there 4 days and although they had a pancake maker, they had no mix the whole time. My kids wanted pancakes and never got them. The other options were sufficient though.

The Hotel is a good gateway site to see MT Rushmore,
Crazy Horse Mountain Carving, Badlands National Park,
Custer State Park and Deadwood.
The hotel was clean, the breakfast was very good, the hotel was secure and safe.
This hotel is excellent value for price and the staff went out of its way to help us.

Much better experience without dogs. Don't want to sleep in former animal quarters and prefer not to hear barking dogs in the night.
Front desk staff were obtuse. Just not wide awake to what was going on.

Made 2 separate reservations for business and leisure. They were combined into 1.
Never recognized as IHG members. Rate charged was different than rate quoted in April.
Govt rate quoted (both rates) are much higher than govt rates in the past with the rate doubling since 2012.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Nice hotel
We stayed 2 nights at this hotel and found it to be nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was little insulation or noise barriers between rooms and floors so you could hear people walking, running, etc. from the rooms above us which was annoying while trying to sleep.
I thought the hotel was nice but the rewards points was high for this hotel and location during the time of year we were there.
