First SD trip
The hotel is older - rustic let’s say, and bc of that, things are a little outdated, like carpet and bathroom area. There were crumbs and a Q-tip!! under the table and drops/sticky streaks on the wall (not too bad but it’s the details!!), and table was not wiped. The shower curtain was stained reddish color (bacteria stain) on bottom and towels were dingy. I bought towels to use. I would stay here again though. I could tell it was a nicely run place, great location, and very quiet for the volume of people! Didn’t hear a peep! Our room, despite being outdated and could be a little cleaner, as big and comfortable!

Nice but could be better
This was our first time staying at the Rushmore Express and it was an okay experience. Service was great but some areas could use a little bit of an improvement. The breakfast was an interesting experience and the pool area was very, very warm with a very heavy chlorine smell. Our room was nice but could use an easy chair or couch for more of a comfortable setting.

The hotel is great, just a little dated. They need to replace all the mattress, sheets and pillows. Breakfast is ok, but it free. The services is great and the people is nice, great prices.
