I must admit I wasn't expecting much but ended up being very pleased with this hotel. We unexpectedly had to stay the night in Sioux Falls and my husband picked this as the near-cheapest option from an online booking site (in the same price ballpark as the Six and the Eight). I just crossed my fingers and hoped for "clean."... More

Thank you for such a nice review. It is always good when we exceed someone's expectations. We do have many pleasantly surprised guests. We did the interior first so you would be comfortable but we are getting to the outside as you could see. The stonework is going well as is the siding. Windows are now in the waterpark .... More

This hotel is making some construction changes. The check in was seamless & everyone was exceptionally friendly. The mattress had a quilted top and was very comfortable. The hot & cold breakfast had just about everything to get your day started. Courtyard was very appealing too.

We stopped at this little hotel because of the price. We realized we had stayed there before. It used to be named Brinmarck Inn. They have really outdone themselves updating the hotel. The room was clean and the staff was very friendly. They are adding an addition to the hotel which will be a water park which should be open... More

Although this hotel looked rough on the outside the lobby was modern and inviting. Abby, the front desk lady, was friendly and informative. The room was clean and comfortable.

The room looked and felt newly remodeled, the bedding was very comfortable (although I used my own softer pillow). There is a lovely interior courtyard with a fountain, fire pit, tables and chairs, & it was a nice location to unwind after driving all day. The breakfast area was clean & tidy, & the food tasty - hot or cold... More

I was impressed by the fancy new sink and granite tile in the bathroom. Breakfast was generous and I liked the antique stove turned into a counter with the addition of a glass topper. The breakfast nook was cheerful.

What a great setup! With the new remodeling the management have been adding every convenience that a "family" is looking for. A great water slide, great breakfast, even beautiful garden area for guests to grill their own food and have a picnic. The staff are courteous and very accommodating. Plus just off I90 and super close to the new arena.... More

We stayed here overnight before leaving to Badlands and this place was very good for the price. It was better than some of the costlier 3* hotel i have stayed before. The room were clean and comfortable. The had a decent breakfast. Overall its a good value for money. Would recommend it.

This place used to be next to a very bad hotel that brought it down; but now the neighboring hotel is gone and this one is being updated. They're doing it right: the rooms are done, nicely, and kept clean, while they work on the common areas/pool. It's a great location - quick access to airport and several event locations.... More
