Good news, no one fell off a cliff today! The boys had a great time climbing formations at the Badlands in South Dakota this morning. We took a hike which ended up being a little more scary than I thought it would. Parts of he trail were barely a foot wide and sloped down towards the edge of a cliff and it was all loose gravel. Of course no one …
... originally worked on Mount Rushmore for a number of years before deciding to create a monument to the Indians. It has been in the process for 70 years now and I do not think it will be finished or quite a number of years to come. Lots of Indian artefacts here and it was great to see an Indian dancer give a presentation of his cultural dancers, in full regalia in the hot sun. His also spoke about history and present day Indian life - putting ...

... the gates and lock us in the barbed wire fencing amidst a sea of cars. It was a safe an private enclosure with many patches of grass between old vehicles to spit toothpaste and take a ****. The shop bathroom was beyond the most disgusting thing I've seen. But they were kind enough to leave the shop open for us, give us numbers to call if anyone was a bother, and check up on us!! Both mornings in a row Bubba hollered into the van "ill take you out to breakfast at McDonalds ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Country Inn & Suites by Carlson, Rapid City
Another nice place
Our family of four stayed in mid-July. We had a one bedroom suite, which we really like. The place was busy. The pool had lots of people. They have a big water slide that was the attraction. Our kids were too small to enjoy it.
The room was pricey, but we stayed there didn't we.
Very Good Hotel
Very convenient to the interstate - but not too close.
Rooms were big and clean. Staff was friendly really helped
make our trip to SD a pleasant experience. The pool and
waterslide are great for the kids, the breakfast was good and
Stayed here over Easter break, 2005. Indoor pool with a slide that went into over 5 foot water. The best breakfast we had our whole nine day trip. Rooms were clean and the staff very helpful. Would definitely stay here again.
We had a two night stay in May 2005. The hotel is in a reasonable location near the main highways with a reasonable amount of parking space.
Would stay here again
A good stay at a great internet special rate.
The kids loved the waterslide. Breakfast had something for everyone. We would stay there again.
I am sorry, but my stay was not very pleasant. To start out, there was hair found in my sheets. Also, loud noises kept me awake through the night. Service also not very helpful. Breakfast does not even compare to Rapid City Hampton Inn. Will not be staying here again.
Love the water slide!
We stayed in seven hotels on our vacation, and this was my children's favorite hotel because of the water slide at the pool. My husband and I think the Country Inn and Suites is the nicest hotel chain, and this particular hotel is extra nice because of the 100 foot water slide at the pool.Our toilet was making noise, and the maintenance fixed it in a very timely manner. We love the suites here. I would definitely stay there again, and I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Black Hills Badlands Great Fun
At least once in a lifetime you should go to the Badlands. Take your time and explore. Then head for the Black Hills. Get off the main road I-90. Get away from the multiple tourist traps and hike a trail, ride a bike. We stayed in Rapid City at Country Inns and Suites.. always a consintant good hotel. A surprise in Deadwood was the Ammerinn Cadillac Jacks, great rooms and service but eat downtown, you can walk there or ride the trolly. Take a trip through Spearfish Canyon it is a lovely place. We stayed also in Custer State Park Resorts had a cabin at Sylvan Lake which was very nice. Saw wild life and relaxed. Great trip. Plan early. Take your time there and do see the 4 guys on the hill and thier friend being carved on the next hill over . Good programs at both.
Great jacuzzi suite
We stayed here after it first opened. Very comfortable, with a great jazuzzi suite that was very roomy. Would definetely stay here again.
My family and I stayed here in August, 2002. This is a wonderful hotel for a family. There is a great pool with a waterslide that is ideal for kids about 5 and up who can swim. The pool is open until 11 pm, which is great if you have been out sightseeing. There are 2 hot tubs, also. The only problem with the pool when we were there was the chlorine was very strong.
They have a really good breakfast buffet, which is a step abouve the usual continental breakfast. each day, they served eggs and sausage gravy with biscuits along with the usual cereal, bagels, muffins, fresh fruit, yogurt, etc, and many beverages.
We would definitely stay here again.
