We brought several teams from our basketball program from Minnesota to stay at this hotel. We played at the Sanford Pentagon which was about 10-12 minutes down the highway. This hotel is conveniently located near every restaurant ever created (just kidding, but there are a TON of options), the highway, gas stations, and the mall. The staff were so friendly... More

I stayed here for 3 nights on business. The hotel was very clean and the staff was friendly. It's situated a couple blocks from the mall but within walking distance to some nice restaurants and shopping.

Even though the first of our 3 nights was not stellar the staff accommodated us very well and the remaining stay was flawless. Can not say enough good things about the staff, comfort and cleanliness of the property. Excellent location with good food within walking distance and shopping nearby.

This hotel was excellent, rooms and common areas were clean, bed was comfortable, pillows were great.

We've been staying at this property for at least 8 years, and have been very pleased each time. Clean, comfortable, bright rooms with decent beds make for a good nights rest. It's also a very quiet building (compared to some of the newly constructed hotels). The staff is efficient, although not overly friendly...but they get the job done. We're looking... More

I have stayed here several times as a participant in the Siouxland Renaissance Fair. The rooms are nice and fairly quiet. The breakfast is good but gets a bit crowded on the weekends and it is hard for the servers to keep up. The hotel is close to many good restaurants. The staff have always been very nice, even with...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come stay at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Sioux Falls, a city rich in history and a regional hub for corporate and retail services. The history of Sioux Falls revolves around the cascades of the Big Sioux River. The falls were created approximately 14,000 years ago when the last glacial ice sheet redirected the flow of the Big Sioux River. With our hotel's convenient location, you will find us easily accessible to many attractions such as the Empire Mall, Sertoma Butterfly House and Outdoor Campus, Falls Park, the Washington Pavilion and Wild Water West Amusement Park. We are also conveniently located by many restaurants such as Ruby Tuesday and corporate locations such as banks, hospitals, Joe Foss Field Airport, and the Ivy Room Conference Center. Our hotel offers limited shuttle service to the airport and other corporate locations. While in Sioux Falls, make sure to sit along the banks of the mighty Big Sioux River at Falls Park, our city's namesake. While there you can check out the Horse Barn Art Gallery and Falls Park Tower. Welcome to Sioux Falls, the heart of America! ... more   less
