I stayed at this hotel in Brookings mostly because they allow pets and the reputation of the hotel. I was driving back from a business trip - after an extremely long day of work, so I was very tired. Check-in was very fast and they were ready for my arrival. I went to the room - King room - and... More

Great place to stay with kids, as the pool with water slide is a great draw. Very nice that they also usually have lifeguards. Was a little disappointed that no drinks are allowed poolside, but I guess it is a college town. Rooms are nice and clean, good size. Breakfast was standard, but fresh and tasty. The hotel is on...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Brookings for the Brookings Marathon. The location is convenient and an easy drive to the Marathon start. We had a room with a whirlpool which was great for tired/sore muscles after a marathon. But, we were right next to the door for the pool so it was a little noisy. The hotel is... More

The room was clean and nice. The breakfast was delicious and the waitress was very nice. The pool was kind of wimpy though, the deepest it got was 3'6" and the slide was turned off during the week. So basically, there was 2 kid pools and no adult pool. If the adults aren't looking to swim, then this is a... More

Pet friendly. This hotel is quite close to the interstate, but is quite quiet. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable, and the complimentary breakfast is very well done. They do have an indoor pool with a water slide which may interest kids, but we didn't have a chance to use it.
