"Great hotel, right at the base of the Black Hills!"
The Grand Gateway Hotel was a pleasant experience in that it offered everything we wanted and needed. The staff was very helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. The hotel was located close to many good restaurants and the main highway to enter the Black Hills. Parking was a little tricky when coming back late, but we always managed to have a spot available near our room. The pool/recreation area was a plus. It was enclosed inside the hotel and had a water slide with the pool, ping-pong tables, pool tables and an air hockey table. We especially loved the air hockey table and played it every night when we came back from sight seeing. All the usual amenities were offered in the rooms and they even had a laundry service that charged by laundry weight. This was very helpful. There was a little bar/club located near the front office that featured karaoke. We tried it out and the staff was really friendly. It appeared to be a hot spot for locals. A "Perkins" restaurant was conveniently located near the front office for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night snacks. It was good and we frequented it often. All in all, The Grand Gateway Hotel was an excellent choice for us and if we come back to visit this way in the future, we will definitely stay here again. I highly recommend it!
