When you see a motel whose rooms list for $32 a night, you'd expect kind of a dive, right? Not at the Foothills Inn! I got a ground-floor room with two queen-size beds for $42 -- with breakfast. Now, OK, breakfast consists of a Jimmy Dean biscuit or croissant per person and a choice of dry cereals with milk along...

At $32 per night for 4 nights my expectations were very low and man was I surprised. On the outside it looks like your typical old motel. However, walking into the room I was blown away given the price point. Room was clean and spacious! The staff are very welcoming and warm. There was a refrigerator and microwave in the...

They were very accomidating and helpful. The rooms were clean and the maids were rompt and did a good job. We had 10 people in our group and we were able to sit in the lobby and play games on the table and gather above the lobby to visit and not have to jam into one room. Gayle at the...

This place was easy to find off the interstate on a late night as our family headed west to Montana from Minnesota. The staff was freindly, the room was clean and the breakfast adequate to get us up and going the next day. It was a good value, it is pet friendly and we will stay here again.

The room was well-furnished, clean, and breakfast was included. The staff is friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone wishing to stay in Rapid City. I couldn't believe I only paid $45 plus tax for the room.

We were just passing through to see friends and family. Nice little place to hang your hat. Nothing fancy or special but it was clean and comfortable and that is not as common in this price range as it used to be.

My daughter, her husband, my wife, and I traveled to Rapid City to enjoy Black Friday shopping. We needed a place to stay - both so we could have a place to sleep and as a hub for napping between shopping, meeting up with each other,, etc. We didn't need much from the room....a couple of comfortable beds, a shower,...

My girl and I have been travelling the USA for some time now. Out of 23 states we have stayed in a bunch of different hotels. By far this is the best one, staff, cleanliness, services, breakfast, and coffee 24/7. The price of their rooms was right on target when we have paid more at other location for less. Other...

I found the Foothills Inn on Tripadvisor and could not believe its excellent rates. I read several more positive reviews and decided to take a chance. The place is great. For a family traveling on a budget to Mount Rushmore this would be an ideal choice. The rooms are a bit dated but do you really need style when touring...
