Accommodations & Amenities

Welcome to the Grand Gateway Hotel Rapid City


The Grand Gateway Hotel, on the corner of Interstate 90 and Lacrosse at exit 59 in Rapid City, South Dakota, is in the center of everything the Black Hills has to offer. Our central location provides travelers the convenience of only unpacking once to enjoy Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, Custer State Park and the beautiful Black Hills and Badlands. Forty-five minutes in any direction of our hotel can lead you to the world-famous Wall Drug, the city of Sturgis, home of the annual Black Hills Motorcycle Rally, or Wild Bill's historical city of Deadwood for gaming and slots. Head just a little further west to see Devil's Tower. We are located just 12 miles from Rapid City Regional Airport and only 2 miles from our thriving downtown.

When it's time to rest in one of our 132 clean and comfortable sleeping rooms, take advantage of our heated indoor pool* with 130-foot waterslide or relax in the hot tub (*pool will be closed for maintenance April 13-30, 2020). Head into Cheers Lounge to enjoy dinner, a night cap, or nightly live entertainment. In the morning when you are ready to start your day, walk down the hallway to Perkins Restaurant & Bakery and pick from a delicious menu with items beginning as low as $5.

The Grand Gateway Hotel is family-owned and operated, and has been for three generations! They are pleased to offer a full-service facility, and everyone at our hotel invites you to enjoy a great vacation.
