Very Good 8.0 From 1,271 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Small town homey feel. It was fine.
Its a pretty dated facility in design and decor and amenities in the room were quite basic(soap, shampoo, etc) . But it was relatively clean and comfortable enough. Walls and doors were thin, the whole place could just use a remodel with added noise insulation and fresh paint. Most importantly it would be good to replace all of the outlets in the building (rooms, lobby, lounge) modern chargers ran hot and fell out of the walls. A bit concerning. Parking was not convenient in the evenings as the bar seems to be a locals hangout. It was a fine stay, but upon leaving on a monday my denied request for a late checkout was pretty discouraging, knowing that monday night occupancy was not expected to be high. We were offered a half hour, but with a 9pm flight, it didnt do us any good. The staff everywhere were extra friendly and it had a nice small town feel, a few extra hours to not sit at the airport would have left a better feel on our exit. It would also be nice to have some outdoor seating other than the bar smoking area. (For smoking guests not in the bar, or just a place to sit outside) I got a great deal (i think) from i would not have been as pleased paying what is listed as full rate.

Quick trip
Two night stay. Bed was a bit lumpy and pillows were either hard or soft. The hotel stay was not bad and staff was helpful. Hotel was a bit older but served the purpose for a quick trip to Mt. Rushmore. No huge frills and the fitness room was pretty small and outdated.

Grand Gateway Hotel - pretty great
In Rapid City for a couple of days. This is a bit of an older hotel, but the room was spacious, the bed comfortable and the location near the highway and shopping. No issues with parking. No free breakfast as they have a 24 hr Perkins that provides room service during certain hours.

Much more than expected. Great hotel
This hotel was amazing. Beautiful rooms, comfortable, quiet. We got there too late to enjoy the pool and water slide or the recreation room, but they looked fun. The restaurant connected to the hotel was very good and open 24 hours (I think) very pleasant stay, much more that we expected. I would definitely go back or recommend.
