Haunted? Yep, that's one of the unique descriptions of the Hotel Alex Johnson you may come across when researching this fabulous property. But, don't let that scare you away, as this hotel is truly a gem. From the moment you walk into the 2 story lobby, studded with carved Native American busts and blanket patterned ceiling to the large stone...

Perfect location with lots of food, drinks and shopping within walking distance, even a few option right in the building. It's an old hotel that was been updated with modern fixtures. Rapid City is an easy city to get around as well.

Rooms are very modern for an older building so this is nice !! Plenty of places within walking distance to eat and shop. Starbucks inside the hotel and this is a nice feature as well. Wish there was a continental breakfast, though. Remodeling going on April 2017 so hopefully it will be done soon !! Top floor has a bar...

Location location location great downtown. Easy to find and everything is out within walking distance. Hotel bars are very fun and entertaining (love the rooftop view). The fireplaces add a nice touch to make you feel welcome.

We thought the hotel was very nice. The check-in procedure went easily. Starbucks in the hotel was a perk! The only issue we had is the room was way too small for a family of 4 (two small kids) for a weeks stay. We only stayed the first night and then had to move hotels to get more badly needed...

Everything in this experience was good. The only issue was the fire alarm going off due to burnt popcorn. I would recommend this facility to others. Very clean and well taken care of. The staff was friendly and answered all questions in a timely manner. I like the location of this facility because of all the shops and restaurants that...

Second, the walls are thin. I could actually hear a conversation going on the in the room next to me. I found the rooms lovely and...
