Stayed one night before a visit to SDSU. We arrived too late for the pool. The water slide is only open certain days/hours so make sure you inquire about that before booking the hotel for that reason. The internet worked well but when I tried to do my VPN to get to my work e-mail, it would not work. The... More

We stayed here multiple times per year for four years. The rooms were always clean and fresh and the staff helpful. The morning breakfast was very good as well with many nutritious choices to start your day.

Positives - The bed is pretty comfortable and the location right off the interstate is convenient. Negatives - slow internet even when I'm 1 of very few guests here. No fridge or microwave in the king suite. Breakfast has had 1 or 2 pieces of old fruit every morning. Fitness center is terrible. 2 treadmills, 1 eliptical and 1 stationary... More

When we checked in we were very worried because there was a VERY LARGE group of young wrestlers staying at the hotel. Our room was on the first floor and near the pool and conference room so we knew we were going to hear the kids for hours. We talked to the friendly staff at the front desk and the... More

This is your typical Holiday Inn Express. I was surprised by the price, but it was similar to the other hotels in the area. The staff were friendly. The fitness area could use some new equipment. All in all a good experience.

I normally stay at Hilton properties. I booked this hotel for a hockey tournament. The rate was $150 per night. The rooms, lobby and pool area were very clean and nice. The pool area was nice with a big slide. No alcohol allowed in the pool area. The service was sub-par. We checked in on a Friday night and had... More

I usually stay at Hilton brand hotels, but the local Hampton Inn in Brookings was already booked full when I attempted to make my reservation - so I went to my #2 choice. I called the Holiday Inn Express, and the desk associate exhausted all options in an effort to get me a room - and that she did, which... More

This hotel was very nicely appointed and CLEAN. It is clearly not brand new, but has been taken great care of, and is extremely clean and neat, which is all I look for when traveling. The service was truly outstanding. During an 8 hour drive to Brookings for a wedding, we called to request an early check in so we... More

I was in Brookings for a really quick trip to help pack belongings of our granddaughter..a SDSU student, returning home for the summer. Our room was a standard, but very adequate and clean. The Continental Breakfast was just enough for us to get started on our journey home.

We stayed here on the first night of our vacation and had a restful night. The hotel is located by the interstate and away from the center of town. Nice, comfortable, clean accommodations. Tasty breakfast in the morning. Would stay here again!
