Good location, great relaxing place, and fun included. Take the kids to play and then see the outdoors. This place provides a comfortable place to lay your head and we will always stay here when we visit the area.

"Highly over-rated LaQuinta with several serious problems!"
2 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 5, 2014
txtravlers | Bella Vista, Arkansas
This facility tries to charge an additional $7.95 for being a 'resort'...the prices are already above the average cost for this hotel chain. We stay at LaQuinta whenever we travel, but were quite disappointed with this one in Rapid City, S.D. Although it looks nice, we found it to be all for show. The TV was not equipped with a 'quide', just showing what the channels were only. The tub/shower did not drain properly. The internet was difficult to connect to, even with trying to work through the front desk, who told us we'd need to lower our security setting! There was noise coming from other rooms along with hallway noise too. We also had trouble getting the heat setting to work right; it would either be too hot or freeze us to death. We were hoping the 'Brightside Breakfast' would be better, but everything tasted artificial. We won't return!

The hotel was very nice, however pricey,. mind you I went with my kids and midnight run to the front desk for a snack will cost you a pretty penny. $4 for a candy bar ,,, the beds were nice and soft, with rooms cleaned to perfection, the breakfast was just ok but 100% better than the prejudice of sliders wait staff. waterpark kept kids entertained all day and night. however staff were very unfriendly and barely talked to us including on how things worked... all in all it is worth a stop in .
