Normal, average HI Express. Reasonably clean though. The chair and ottoman are old and very stained, they need to be just tossed. The room is fairly clean though in general. Hotel is quiet though. Breakfast is normal, biscuits and warm food. Pancakes Etc. front deck help are polite and friendly. Only wish there'd been more decaf coffee in the lobby... More

We came to South Dakota for a Honeymoon/vacation/ family visit. We have stayed at 4 other hotels this past week. Our son booked this hotel for us and after reading all the negative reviews, we were concerned. Well, this hotel is great. No our room did not have a fridge or microwave, but they brought both to our room for... More

Thank You for your review. I am so glad that you enjoyed a clean, comfortable room with an amazing bed and found breakfast to be superior. Your review was very thorough and I appreciate that. We are planning a renovation for this winter, but I have not been advised of a hot tub being installed. That would be amazing, but... More

My wife and I, and several other family members, spent two nights at this hotel recently. We’ve stayed in quite a few Holiday Inns over the years, and I would rate this one about average, at best, compared to all those we’ve stayed in. No major problems, but there were a few issues. When we arrived, there was no one... More

Spent 2 days in town on business. Hotel was fairly quiet, and the room was very clean. Weird smell in the stairs but no big deal. Checking in/out was easy. The breakfast was adequate, nothing special. The juices on tap (orange & apple) tasted as if they had been watered down.

I do apologize there was a smell in the stairwell and that the juice wasn't to your liking. I will definitely check the setting on the machine to make sure it is dispensing the product correctly.

The rooms are very comfortable. There are four pillows per bed: two soft and two firm. They are even labeled. The rooms are very clean and ours had a nice view. The breakfast is very good and has several options including oatmeal. The room has a filter coffee maker with coffee in filters. Free coffee is available in the lobby.... More

Not cheap, but worth the price for our nice room and bathroom. WiFi worked well, even when two of us were using it simultaneously. Breakfast was very nice and the front desk people were very helpful to us. We celebrated my husband's birthday at the Outback Steakhouse just next door; very nice, too.

This property is very dated and an embarrassment to the IHG chain. Internet is junk less than .5 meg for download, most rooms don't have a microwave or fridge, time to join the modern age. Seriously this place should be a super 8 and not the Holiday Inn express. I'm here for business but I feel sorry for the families... More

Stayed here for 1 night w/family. Hotel was nice and clean. Beds were comfy. Breakfast was better than average, Attendant was very friendly and kept everything well stocked, also gave us some tips on what to see. Good central location for venturing out, but still being in town.
