Good but not great A review of Country Inn & Suites by Carlson, Rapid City

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.
