Good location, close to several attractions. Room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Priced right! Front desk staff suggest a nearby restaurant for dinner and we weren't disappointed! Overall, we had a great place to stay while on our mini-vacation.

This hotel is in a great location and has friendly staff. Our family stayed here for a state softball tournament. The pool is basic but a a good size. The rooms are clean. It's location is great and easy to get to - Exit 78 of I-29 S. There are lots of restaurants and shopping close by.

We stopped in Sioux Falls on a Staurday evening on our way home from the Black Hills. We could have kept driving to Iowa, but really enjoyed the previous Sunday and Monday we had spent at the Sheraton across town. We have always enjoyed our stays at HI Expresses, so this one seemed like a safe choice. Like the Express... More

I usually think of Holiday Inn Express as being newer properties so I was a bit surprised that this is an older building. I don't know this for a fact, but my guess is that it was a Holiday Inn before it was a Holiday Inn Express. It has a room layout that is very typical of a lot of... More

My fiancee had to work there on his birthday. I ordered an "edible arrangement" for his birthday and had it delivered (I live in Colorado). The hotel staff put it in their refrigerator (thank you), but never let him know it was there. I called and spoke with "Kasey;" she was very rude. She claimed she left a message on... More

As a member of an organization that does a lot of travel, where we stay is of the utmost importance.

We spent one night as we were passing through Sioux Falls. We stayed in one of the suites in the south wing. We have stayed in many Holiday Inn Express hotels and this one is about average. Our room was spacious and quiet. The room's temperature was easily controllable with a unit that allowed us to keep the fan on... More

We were given 3 rooms in 2 days in the newest part of the hotel. Room #1 never warmed up. Room #2 was a handicap room that smelled bad. Room #3 was fine. Everything was new so I was surprised about the issues. You had to get your room cards updated a couple times a day or you couldn't get... More

Staff very nice and helpful. I like the South Tower as it was quiet. Room 363 was a nice size with mic/fridge. Tip: Restaurant, Foley's is right next door. If you get a bottle of wine you can take it back to the hotel.

We spent Friday and Saturday night here while we visited our son and his wife. The location for shopping and restaurants couldn't be better. Easy on and off the Interstate.
