We stayed here with two children for one night while in town for a basketball tournament. I'm not too picky when it comes to hotels, but the two of the things I look for are cleanliness and a decent breakfast. I was disappointed in both during our stay here. There was hair in the bathtub, what looks like mold on... More

We stayed at the Dakotah Lodge (Brimark Inn at the time of reservation) in early July on our way to Mount Rushmore and the Black Hills. After perusing many of the offerings in Sioux Falls, I chose the Brimark Inn for its touch of vintage charm, and the promise of newly renovated rooms at a price point just a bit... More

We stayed at the Dakota Lodge on our way to Mount Rushmore. It's convenient in the respect that's it's on the way to Mt. Rushmore from Chicago. But the actual hotel location is kind of hard to get to and when we showed up at around 9 at night there was a bunch of drinking construction workers in the parking... More

Thank you for your review. We are happy we were able to provide you with a comfortable stay. I don't know about the drinking construction workers. We have non staying here at this time. I hope you notified the front desk. I myself would be uncomfortable checking in if I saw that. It is hard to determine what time to... More

On cross country road trip, this was just what the doctor ordered. Cool, comfy rooms, big, welcoming beds, good water pressure, and a hot breakfast included. Room did smell like it had once been a smoking room, but highly recommended. Centrally located to Falls Park and easy off Interstate 90.

We decided to take an impromptu trip to Sioux Falls from 6/1 to 6/5 and this place had everything we needed as far as a reasonable rate and being pet friendly. We checked in late on Tuesday due to the long road trip but they were very accommodating and friendly when we did arrive. We got to the room and... More

Thank you for your review. So sorry for your inconvenience. I see you had reserved on a third party website. We try to make every effort to tell people prior to arrival about the construction so there are no surprises. We usually don't have guests disturbed by noise because of the time frame the contractors work( 7 am to 4:30... More

My stay at the Dakotah Lodge was excellent. The Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The TV in my room had some problems and they replaced it with a new one. When I travel to Sioux Falls again I will definitely stay at this hotel.

The staff was absolutely horrible! (Besides the normal manager gal which was very professional)But the lady owner. Complete nut! Charged me double price then hung up on me when I simply called and asked for my money back or even a credit on more rooms on account my company had more work to do in the area. Unreal. The breakfast... More

This lodge has friendly and helpful staff and some very nice improvements. But there's still a bit of construction to work around (old name is still prominent in front, directional signage is needed, no elevator available, etc.). Rooms are nicely appointed, and breakfast was quite good and in a lovely family-type setting.

Thank you for your review. Yes we are nice. Are we finished yet ? Not quite. BUT we are still giving you a comfortable stay at about half the price. The elevator will be in soon. It should be started in a few days and takes about two weeks to install. I hope you come back and see the finished... More

We stayed at the Dakotah Lodge on our way to Badlands National Park, so we only stayed for one night on the way there and another night on the way back. That was enough. The bed was comfortable, but the shower was kind of gross and the water came out the showerhead and the bath faucet, so by the time... More

Thank you for your review. Sorry you were creeped out and thought our hotel was gross.

Thank you so much for your 5 star review. We are so happy we could meet or exceed your expectations. We are constantly trying.
