TravelPod Member ReviewsFairfield Inn & Suites - Rapid City
Service was good. In my opinion, more suitable for families with younger children who can enjoy the waterpark which is geared to the little ones. Rooms are clean and comfy. The location isn't particularly scenic, it's right by the tollway, but is close to Rapid City, and 30 minutes from Mount Rushmore, etc.
