Great stay for very reasonable price!

Very impressed with the Fairfield Inn overall. Check in person was extremely friendly and accommodating. Room was very clean (great shampoo!). Breakfast staff (Diane and Lita) were more than accommodating and very friendly, and it was a very good breakfast! Would highly recommend the Fairfield Inn! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

We love staying here when bringing the kids down to Watiki! Nice place with friendly staff! Great breakfast. Comfortable beds. Also convenient having the restaurants attached. It is a great place to stay! I definitely recommend it! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Not Marriott quality

Jan 21st, 2020

This hotel is connected to Watiki Water Park, and because of this, it does a lot of business, especially with families with young children. Don't stay here if you don't like kids and the noise that comes with them. The beds are comfortable, but the sleeper sofa was awful. We asked for more bath towels and never received them, even after speaking to a housekeeping manager. There were 5 of us in the room, and we were given only two bath towels. Not good, when you all want to shower after swimming! The breakfast was good; better than some hotels but still the standard selections. Overall, the hotel is old and needs some updating (tiles, furniture, carpet, and ceilings). It's fine to stay in if your primary reason is to enjoy the water park. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Mediocre at best

Dec 29th, 2019

We stayed in a 2 queen suite and I’ll start with the positive aspects to be fair. The room had a nice layout with a good amount of space, the coffee in the room actually tasted decent, maintenance was prompt (more on that later) and most of the equipment functioned as it should (lights turned on, sink drained, fridge was cold, etc). It was also pretty clean and had a few complimentary toiletries (but just the very bare necessities... I had to request lotion.) However that’s where the pros end and the cons begin. The overall state of the room was very worn. There was a large crack in the bathroom floor, the lock you flip to secure the door from opening was missing a screw and not effective, the second tv didn’t turn on, the ledge holding the fridge was broken causing the fridge to tip and the fridge was also very loud, the bench leg fell off when I moved it, there was a very dated stereo (had a cassette player) which was nice for a radio but just added to the worn feel of the room and there were scratches and scuffs on nearly all the furniture. The lobby was out of coffee and hot water and just sitting empty (4 separate pots), and while I’m all for giving people a warm place to sit on a cold winter day, there was a homeless person sitting in the dining area so I wouldn’t let your children roam for safety reasons. Maintenance did show up and fix the door lock as well as the tv but they let themselves in and didn’t wait for me to open the door (hence the urgent need to have the lock fixed). They also replaced the bench with a new one which was considerate. The hotel is a solid 3 stars because it was clean and that says a lot and the location is good with lots of fast food options and some nicer restaurants nearby. But it is not a place to splurge on because you will feel like you wasted your money. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Best Place in Rapid City

Nov 6th, 2019

Recently traveled to Rapid City with a college football team and we stayed at this hotel. Talk about an organized front desk. They were fast and efficient when it came to checking in. The breakfast in the morning was perfectly organized! This is a place I will definitely return to for a personal trip!!! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
