This is place is super nice and some great folks. We had a King room that was very nice and spacious. The bath was nice, great water pressure and hot water. This is an inside entrance place and has access on both ends of each hall. The place is nice and secure feeling and no issues if travel on motorcycles.... More

Wonderful stay. Very reasonable price!! Super staff! Though it is going through renovations, the room was excellent. Nice new decor! Clean and comfy beds. Inviting courtyard. Our stay in Sioux Falls ended up being a very nice time! We just may have to come back someday to see the place when it is done. Totally satisfied!

I didn't expect a great deal when booking this room for a one night stay on my way West. I got more than I expected: a newly renovated room in a recently renamed motel undergoing what appears to be a major renovation and expansion. Aside from a few errors by the laborers (appearance items in that bath), the room was... More

This hotel in under renovation and it appears they are doing a great job. The rooms are nicely updated and really clean but ours still smelled of old stale smoke. The hallway ceilings are really low which makes the the hotel seem "closed in". The staff was great very nice and courteous. About two exits south is where all the... More

Thank you so much for your nice review. I am very sorry you did not ask the front desk about eating paces as there are some good choices at our exit. Frankie's is less than a block away and has a bar with food as well and the Rollin Pin is across the street about a half block away, and... More

Clean, Comfortable and amazingly decorated hotel. A first class breakfast. Great place to stay easy to get to everything in Sioux Falls. Adding a Water Park and that will make it even greater. The courtyard with the waterfalls, fireplace and grill is top notch for relaxation.

What a pleasant surprise! This newly remodeled motel (formerly Brimark Inn) is as clean as can be. The outdoor areas are nearing completion and when it's done, it will be really nice. They are also putting in a water park feature. The breakfast was simply satisfying - waffles, yogurt, cereals, juices, pastries and breads. Very nice.

The room was recently updated with the hotel renovations. Check-in service was great. The breakfast had good selection and okay quality. The owners are investing in many improvements which is nice to see. The courtyard was lovely and wish we would have found it sooner during our stay. The location was close to downtown but closer to the highway which... More

We loved staying at the Dakotah Lodge. It was clean and the staff went out of their way to make our stay comfy. We even got to visit with the head gal, Donna, who is so charming and fun. We would stay there again. The place is decorated so cute, and maintained wonderfully!

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
