Very good location--very easy to access hwy-- shopping and restaurants located in area. Water park wonderful for grandkids also hotel has an arcade . If you stay at hotel the hotel the water park charge is $7 cheaper than it is to the public who can use the facilities--water park is usually very crowded on weekends. There is a restaurant and bar accessible to the park area which makes it nice where you don't have to leave the park to get a bit to eat . Towels provided by the park. Hotel service was good --we had a bump at the beginning when our rooms air conditioner went out but was fixed immediately. Continental breakfast with good selection. I would recommend this hotel for a family traveling with children it is a good break from the historical sites that can be boring to smaller children and needs to be taken in measured amounts or else vacation could be a bust for the kids

Nice hotel great employees, front desk people were outstanding. The suite we had was clean and roomy. Food at the hotel was quick and good. The hotel needs a better outside smoking area( covered) . The pet rooms should be located on the same floor to avoid noise. . We had a great stay...

We spent 2 days at the motel and had excellent service. We had 2 granddaughters that thoroughly enjoyed the water park and the arcade. We were able to relax while watching the girls at the waterpark. It is close to a lot of area attractions and shopping.

""Fun for kids""

We have (1)2 and (1) 4 year old and we stayed there for 4 nights. It's physically connected to an awesome water park where they serve reasonably-priced food. You can even eat in the water park area which is sweet. Great breakfast and parking is pretty good, and I am typing this at one of their complimentary computers. The only problem I had was with the workers, but I talked with the manager and she straightened it up immediately. I'd say you will be hard-pressed to find a more convenient place to stay with kids in Rapid.

"Overpriced and Overcharged"

I was quoted a price online and I tried to cancel my reservation at 11:00 a.m. for the same day I had reservations, and they would not cancel. I called the hotel and then I called the corporate number. The corporation said that they had to talk to the Rapid City hotel and put me on hold. They said I needed a 24 hour notice to cancel. This was not in the reservation information online. I also spoke with someone from the hotel the night I made my reservation and they were $75.00 higher on their price. They also charged me TWO fees for resort fees of $7.50 for two days even though I only stayed the ONE night. This hotel was not friendly and they did not have the nicest rooms at all for the price. I paid over $300 for ONE night for this room and they tacked on an additional $30.00 in fees and taxes. The breakfast was not that great and the room wasn't even clean. It was just okay. The light on the fire alarm was blinking all night and it was very noisy next to us. I called the front desk after 10:00 and they must have called because everything was quieter after that. I was just upset because they would not cancel my reservation and they were full that night because they didn't have any more rooms available. They could have sold this room to someone else.
