Comfort Suites in Rapid City, South Dakota

After a 10+ hour drive across South Dakota from Minneapolis, all I desired was a warm bed and a place that felt like home. Comfort Suites Hotel & Convention Center in Rapid City fit that description perfectly!

Rolling into the Comfort Suites parking lot well after 10pm and, after such a long day of travel, all any traveler wants is a speedy check-in and friendly staff – and that’s exactly the treatment I received! Once I had my key cards in hand, I proceeded with my normal ritual of asking the staff for area recommendations. They were very knowledgeable of the Rapid City area and listed many must-see attractions & the best restaurants, including the location of a not-so-public speakeasy in downtown Rapid City. Shhhh, it’s a secret!

Booked for three nights in a 2 Queen Bed Suite, I was greeted with an extremely spacious room that included a living area. Even though the hotel is located right off I-90, I immediately noticed that there was no traffic noise to keep me from enjoying a good night’s rest. The room was equipped with new furniture, plush pillow-top mattresses, and a work desk. Rooms only have one desk but, if I felt like being less formal, I was able to get plenty done thanks to an extra armchair and coffee table in the living area. A definite positive for me was how clean the entire room and bathroom was! You don’t always get that in hotels and I was extremely pleased with the cleanliness and condition of the room.

Since I was in town for the Crazy Horse Autumn Volksmarch, I found that the hotel was very conveniently located to the main road that led to the Crazy Horse Memorial and Mount Rushmore. With many gas stations nearby, it was a breeze to gas up and make the 35-45 minute ride to many of Rapid City’s most famous attractions. As if that wasn’t reason enough to stay at Comfort Suites, the distance to downtown Rapid City was a quick and easy 10 minute drive.
