We stayed here for a hockey tournament in March and the best part of the stay was very friendly and accomodating staff. It had a convenient location right across the street from the rink. The beds were super comfy and the room was very clean. Nice breakfast selection and did well keeping up even though they were booked for the... More

We have a family member attending SDSU so we've stayed at this motel twice within the last year. I've been impressed with the cleanliness & spaciousness of the rooms. The front desk and breakfast area staff were very friendly and helpful. Our kids enjoyed the water slide one eve. Both times we've been there, the hot tub has been out... More

I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Brookings while attending a conference at Daktronics. The hotel is literally right next door to Daktronics so that was very convenient. I've stayed in other nearby hotels but this will be my choice from now on. The hotel was very nice and the staff did a great job of meeting my... More

Thr rooms were spacious and very clean. You could tell that this property was well taken care of and the staff genuinely cared about their jobs. It made the perfect end to a long day of driving. There is an Applebee's right across the street or other restaurants just a short drive away.

The rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, and the staff was friendly. There were several kids running around when we got there but I did not hear them while inside our room. The pool wasn't big but my kids loved the waterslide however there were several steps going up to the top of the slide that needed repair. The breakfast... More

Great breakfast and very comfy beds! Pool was kind of a disappointment because of its size and the lazy and unfriendly lifeguards, and the ladies room at the pool was an accident waiting to happen because of the wet, very slippery floor. Would stay again, however!

We stayed here for one night. The room was clean and nice as expected and the bed was very comfortable. The Wifi in the room worked good. The bathroom was clean, decent sized, had good lighting, and plenty of towels. Breakfast was good with a friendly attendant, constantly refilling and even wiping off tables. Overall, I have nothing negative to... More

This is the way that all HIE's should be. The rooms were clean and modern. The staff from check-in, breakfast to checkout were genuinely caring. The room was comfortable, spacious and extremely comfortable. A/C worked great. The bathroom shower had great water volume. Mattress and pillows were extra comfortable.

Nice hotel, clean rooms, breakfast was good, staff was friendly and allowed us to check in early so we could enjoy the pool and waterslide. Gas station, Burger King and Applebees all withing walking distance of the hotel. Pool and waterslide are very nice, but beware that the waterslide hours are limited, esp on the week days.
