Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a very clean, comfortable motel. Could not believe the price....extremely reasonable. Could not get the tv to work but that's ok...tired of all the politics anyway. It was only one mile to walk into a great restaurant.

We were very pleasantly surprised by this Motel. The outside does leave a little to be desired and there is nothing nearby the hotel in terms of the location however Dave the manager was just lovely and very helpful. The rooms had been fully renovated and were very fresh and modern. We had room 30 and would recommend that one....

Dave is a great asset to our team! Being with our family for about 20 years and a tour guide in the summer season he is a wealth of knowledge for us and our guests. Being a new owner (4 years) I have been able to learn a lot from him and all the little unknowns our area has to...

We stayed here last week on our way across the country. The room was clean, the people at the desk were helpful, and it was great to have a sofa in addition to the bed in the motel room. The motel was in easy walking of town and the price was terrific.

We had a spare last night on our holiday and decided to go back to Rapid City. We looked in the phone book and came across the Avanti. So phoned and booked as the price was very reasonable. When we drove up to the Motel it was in an unusual area, part residential and part business. But we were pleasantly...

We are working with all of our front desk agents to make sure they are able to help print out airline passes if needed. We are glad you chose to come back to the Black Hills and stay another night (now you can see why we live here, its beautiful!)

This looks like it would be a dive kind of stay, but my friend and I were pleasantly surprised at how current the rooms were furnished. Large space for 2 queen beds. Small kitchenette area was a nice touch also. Super clean. The only downside was how tiny the tub/toilet room was compared to the rest of the space.

Thank LAYLA1779
AvantiMotel, Owner at Avanti Motel, responded to this review

As this is an older property, our rooms were built for comfort not maximum capacity, which means you will get a few more square feet per room than most modern built locations! The great news is that small amount of added space adds a huge amount of comfort.

Reviewed 4 October 2016 via mobile

This hotel was clean and comfortable but s bit dated. We arrived after office hours and the manager left out the key with directions and instructions for the room. Parking and wifi was included in the price. The aircon was s bit noisy and the linen a bit old but i did not pay a lot for the room. No...

Booked online because of close proximity to the airport (late arrival & super early departure time) and the price, but once inside our assigned room we were so pleased that we booked this motel. It is the best deal in Rapid City...recent renovations that the young owners have being doing to the room was very well done from the tile...

My husband can be thanked for the large TVs (the bigger the better he things) :) Our goal is to provide an accommodating, affordable, clean place for you to stay while you enjoy your time in the Black Hills. We have found that most people don't spend much time in their room on vacation so we don't have a pool...

I booked this online. It was very reasonably priced so really just was hoping for a comfortable room. When I drove up we were kind of concerned. The place looked very clean on the outside but the sign looked a little aged. I checked in, the staff was super friendly and helpful. We went to the room they assigned us...

You are very welcome! We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We are slowly working on updating things and as our rooms are what is the most important to the customer, they will all come first with the exterior coming last. A few fun facts about us, we are located 1 block from HWY 44 which when this...

We are on a 19 day road trip. So far, this room was way better than several other rooms. Nice renovations. Big tv. The parking is cramped. When we pulled up outside I was very concerned, but it turned out to be very nice inside. I would stay here again. The neighbors downstairs banged on the ceiling while we were...

Thank you for taking the time out to give us a few pointers (it is easier to fix any issues that we know about, rather than ones we don't) We will take this into consideration and see what we can do to fix any issues. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us.

Booked this place online fairly cheap and wasn't expecting much. But it turned out to be a lovely stay! The photos are after a night of staying, but the place was really clean. We were in the basement apartment. It was really nicely decorated and all the furnishings seemed fairly new. There are also two large wall mounted TVs facing...

We do our best as a small family run motel to give you the most out of your money. Since we don't have the franchise fees we are able to do a little bit more with your $$. We are not fancy but do have the goal to provide you an affordable, clean, modest room during your trip to the...
