What a wonderful stay at the Country Inn and Suites in Rapid City. From the minute we walked in and registered the ladies at the front desk were welcoming and helpful. We were on the 4th floor and had a whirlpool room. I reserved this room since we were going to be on a motorcycle everyday. It was wonderful to come in after a long day and relax a huge whirlpool tub. The room was clean and spaced out very well. It was quiet and we did not hear people walking through the hallways or banging of doors. Every day we had fresh linen and the room was cleaned up. We ate breakfast in the dining room every morning. The coffee was excellent. It was your typical hotel breakfast, but it was hot and good and had plenty to choose from. They had yogurt and fruit to pick from also. There was a TGI Friday's next door and you received a 15% discount from the hotel. It was good. I would recommend this hotel again.

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.
Good but not great
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.
The room (not a suite) was a decent size and was clean. The high speed internet was available in the lobby (with a computer for guests to use), in the room I used dial-up which was still much faster than most other places I've visited. There didn't seem to be a cable or the right type of port to connect to high speed in the room.
The breakfast was ample, not as good as other Country Inn & Suites I've visited but it did have a reasonable range of items and the waffle maker. The dining room was dark and had around 10 tables.
The big negative was the lack of soundproofing between rooms. On the second night the couple next door could be heard talking until 1am and in the morning you could hear the women throwing up in their bathroom! Not so pleasant. The only way to block the noise was to have the tv switched on and at a reasonable volume.
The staff were friendly and were able to explain the book exchange program to me.
I'd consider staying here again, the rate was good, the breakfast ample but I'd try to get a room without having occupants in the adjacent rooms.
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.

After a year of planning our day had begun...well we thought so. We were suppose to land in Rapid City late morning and pick up our bike from the Black Hills Harley Davidson dealer to begin our adventure..but our flight was 7 hours late leaving!!! We finally arrived in Rapid City around 5:30 p.m. and took a complimentary shuttle to the Country Inn …
... a scene that's burnt into my memory. Pitt and Sheffer are flyfishing in the Blackfoot River, basically coming up empty. Sheffer splits off to go find their father; Tom Skerritt sits under the shade of trees smiling up at him. They talk a bit, then Sheffer asks him if he's caught anything. Skerritt opens his wicker basket, and shows two or three large trout; Sheffer shakes his head as Skerritt keeps smiling. I ...
Interesting turn of events...we woke up to quite the rain this morning and when Dan checked the weather, he found nothing but rain in this whole area for the next 10 days!! There is even the chance of a tornado, so we’re trying to head south. Who would have thought the weather would be so cool and damp? Plan ...
We had a big day driving from Chicago to our next place which was conveniently amount Rushmore. We actually only planned to see Yellowstone and this was on our path so we thought why not. As we crossed Iowa and South Dakota it was farming country, endless field corn crops that were in harvest. A lot of it goes to stock feed and food product. After 9 hours of driving we stayed at a hotel in Sioux Falls which was a random little town. The ...
... took in the monuments at Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse as well as the scenic drive on the Needles Highway and up to Harney Peak in Custer State Park before finishing up at a local winery. Our driver and tour guide, Wes, was informative both in terms of the local flora and fauna but also his own personal life. Mount Rushmore was impressive with a first class visitor centre (Gutzon Borglum, the sculptor and visionary sounded like a proper control freak, hacking off more ...
