We have stayed MANY different places in Sioux Falls for the Christmas holiday over the last 30 years. Basically all we do is sleep in our hotel since we spend most of our time with family in town. We had gotten tired of spending well over $100 a night for a room we just slept in. I read the reviews... More

From other reviews I expected the Brimark to be clean and friendly and I wasn't disappointed. What I didn't expect was the modern, designer look of my room. From the oversized leather chair to the stylish bathroom features to the wall colors and decorations, I felt like I was in a upscale 4-5 star hotel in a major urban center.

We stayed at the Brimark on our way back across the continent. It was a great night's rest after a long drive. The staff was super helpful and very friendly! I would stay again if ever in the area again.

This is an independent hotel and shows they try hard and succeed. This is done right. It's comfortable from check-in to check-out. Very reasonable rates, about the nicest done place, tasteful then I've seen independent or chain. Decor is classic, neutral and still pretty unique bathroom. The room drapes and full and darkening. Had 'fridge with freezer; no microwave, but... More

We stayed in the Brimark on the way to the Black Hills and could not have found a better stop. The rooms we great, clean and newly remodelled. The facilities provided for our needs perfectly. Finally, the friendly staff added the cherry to the top of our stay!

This was our last hotel for this trip and it was pretty near perfect. A king-sized bed in a nice big room, 4 fluffy pillows, everything else you could wish for, a small but updated bathroom with a wonderful handmade soap holder on the wall. Free WiFi. Decent breakfast in the NICEST breakfast room I have ever been in and... More

We had to overnight here on our way home due to a blizzard in North Dakota right after Christmas. For an overnight stay, it was okay. The breakfast is not worth waking up for. The hotel is newly remodeled. That doesn't say a ton. For needing a place to sleep and a quick shower, it did the trick. No real... More

I was very impressed by Brimark Inn. The newly remodeled rooms were comfortable and nice looking. Everything was very clean and the thick walls kept out noise from other rooms and the nearby highway. I appreciated the pet friendly policy and was so happy to be put in a nice new room with my dog, rather than an older room... More

Thank you so much for the lovely review. It is so nice to hear our guests opinions. We are still working on improvements and maybe we do need voicemail at the front desk.
