The back door in the building did not close unless you pulled it shut. Every time we went through it, it was open and not locked. The hot tub wasn't working. When we asked the front desk, they replied: "it had been broken for as long as they remember and it wasn't going to be fixed anytime soon."

Dear Guest, I'm sorry that you were given that response to our hot tub. The hot blower is on it's way. It is stuck due to severe weather in another state. I will have my maintenance man check the back door. Sounds like the wind probably caught it and it just needs adjustment. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

I will be staying elsewhere due to our room door catchplate was not attached correctly so our door slammed hard and loud everytime we used it. The breakfast was not a continental breakfast! There was someone hollering around and pounding on door while we were sleeping! The pool was great, staff was great and the room was very clean.

I wouldn't recommend.

this hotel is not worth your stay. very dirty hotel. the hallways had chunks of drywall on the floor. Lots of scratches on the walls in hallways as well. not kept up or maintained at all. once we got into the rooms, the bed was very uncomfortable. the bathroom was very nice though and on the bright side. the hotel was easy to find and close to shopping. staff was okay. pool area looked ok. the water was yellow in the hot tub. will not stay there again

Great Facilities, Reasonable Price

Pros: I liked the value - a low price and good amenities.
Cons: Replace the light bulb and damaged toilet seat. Pay attention to the little details - like the used coffee filter in the room's coffee pot.
Location: We stayed at the Econo Lodge because it was near Mt. Rushmore and right off of I-90.
The furnishings and décor were outstanding for the price we paid. Replacing a burned out bulb and few other details would have made it a 5 out of 5. The waterslide was a blast! The breakfast was good, except for a broken coffeemaker (a repairman had been called, but it was a holiday weekend). The staff was generally good, except for the front desk worker taking a cigarette break outside while the customers stood waiting.

Horrible hotel

I would not recommend this hotel to my enemy. Mediocre at best, scary at worst. The breakfast nook was an unpalatable wash of tan and white pseudofood. The coffee was not necessarily drinkable. A good solvent or paint remover perhaps? Econolodge really should be relegated to dregs of American hoteldom.

Econo smell

For starters the price was way over the top for what you got.. just because the 75th Sturgis was happening in the next town doesn't give the businesses the right to jack the prices to a 5 star price when you can barely rate a 1 star. 300 dollars for a motel room is unexceptable. If I knew I was going g to be in rapid city another day I would of booked additional night at the Sheridan hotel that I stayed the night before. That hotel was very nice hotel. Way above expectations for the price of the room. Cheaper by at least 70 dollars. The economy lodge room smelled horrible. The air conditioner needed to be cleaned. Smelled like wet dog was living in it. Holes in the walls.. beds were the hard and uncomfortable... outside door was in disrepair.. needs adittional lighting installed. With all the lamps on the room was still too dark.. maybe it was done to hide the flaws in the room. Don't get me wrong the room was clean but it needed steam cleaned and sanitized to get the bad odors out of the room. The people at the front desk was really nice. The continental breakfast needs work. Provide alittle better selection. Would I stay here again?... only if it was the last motel in the city and the price was alot less. I wouldn't pay over 100 dollars to stay. I would have to be too tired to drive to the next town before I'd force my family to stay there again.
