TravelPod Member ReviewsCountry Inn & Suites by Carlson, Rapid City
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 …
... instead of getting back into the car that we would sit inside McDonalds and rest for a while and take a breather from the car.
About 20-30minutes later we are back on the road and driving 587km’s along one straight road until hitting Mt Rushmore. It was a long-winded and straight drive, but we made it to Rapid City around 7pm and head straight to a campground. We found KOA which offers showers, toilets, WIFI, plug ins, a pool, breakfast and more so ...
We started off today with a visit to Reptile Gardens. I visited this park with my parents when I was a kid and again with my teenage kids. We went to all the shows at least once. The visit brought back old memories. It was also just as exciting now as it was when I was younger. We spent about 5 hours at the ...
... as well. Nothing there. The only other place in town was a few miles east and, fortunately, they had ONE vehicle, a minivan. We took it.
The drive to Rapid City seemed to go on forever (granted, it was a little more than an hour's drive) - in part because the mixed feelings due to having to send my mother on her way and also due to fairly heavy rainfall as we drove through Custer State Park area.
We leave the Badlands for Mount Rushmore this morning. We make a quick pit stop in Rapid City for gas and supplies and then head for Creekside Mountain Resort just outside of Hill City, SD. We pull in mid-afternoon to a small campground right on highway 16. A gorgeous wood and glass house is on the premises, plus several flower beds, bird feeders, and a couple of fifth wheel campers. Allen parks the camper while I go check in. I meet Vic, a rather thin man ...
