We stayed here 2 nights a week apart. Both times we were warmly welcomed and had clean, comfortable rooms. The breakfast was good and served in an area decorated to look like a country kitchen. There was plenty of space and we could also eat in the courtyard, which was very pretty. We didn't use the pool or slide, but... More

This hotel was right off of the interstate which made it very convenient. The hotel, room and bathroom were clean and quiet. The breakfast was not as good as we had hoped for. Dry scrambled eggs were barely edible. The breakfast area was very cute, it was designed to look like a country kitchen but it was very hot and... More

Incredibly friendly staff, clean and comfortable surroundings. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable, stayed in an adjoining room and which was very sound proof. Continental Breakfast was good. Didn't use the Pool area but looked nice. Would definitely stay again!

This is a very clean and pleasant hotel. I would stay again. It had a nice atmosphere. Price was very reasonable. The pool was great for kids and adults. Staff was nice and helpful. The courtyard was a nice touch. Loved it and will definitely stay there during my next trip to Sioux Falls.

We stopped here for one night on our way to Yellowstone. The room was very clean and the beds very comfortable. I usually don't sleep well in hotels but I did here! My 5 and 8 year old daughters absolutely loved the pool with the "rainbow water slide". We also enjoyed sitting by the fire in the very peaceful courtyard... More

We received a warm, friendly welcome by the reception staff. Nice clean room with fridge and microwave which would be useful for longer stays. Nice indoor swimming pool with play area for younger children. Would definitely stay here again.

I decided to stay at Dakota Inn a lot because of the reviews on Trip Advisor for being pet friendly. Made the reservation on Hotel Dot Com. The Check in process went well, and the service and helpfulness of the employees were also good. But the facility is in major need of upgrading. First we had two joining rooms. One... More

Dear Coach, Thank you for staying with us at Dakotah Lodge, so glad your kids enjoyed the pool. We are sorry we failed you in other areas. We have spent considerable money on the hotel, we replaced the beds, carpet, furniture, redid the bathrooms and many air conditioners, so sorry yours was not working properly. Thanks again and safe travels!... More

We had a king room, advertised with leather chairs and ottomans. We took turns sitting on the one leather chair. We were on the second floor. Walls are thin, and I was wakened several times by slamming doors. I could actually hear the next room's phone vibrating? How is that possible? Bed was harder than it needed to be. Bathroom... More

Dear Kangabitt, Thanks for staying with us at Dakotah Lodge. We are glad we could provide you a shuttle to the concert. Sorry about the noise, we do have walls made out of concrete block and don't hear many noise complaints, but with a central hallway, noise will travel.

Our family decided to take a adventure to S.Dakota for the first time and since traveling with our furry four-legged dog that meant we needed to find a pet friendly local place to stay.

Room was clean and comfy. Window didn't close all the way and it was quite windy so a bit noisy. No iron/ironing board in the room, have to fetch from the front desk. Bummer. Breakfast is the crummy DIY waffle setup but there is a decent diner called The Roll'n Pin across the street. And oh, there's a FRIGGIN WATER... More
