When I arrived at my home location I checked my charge account balance and noticed I had been charged TWICE for my room. One charge over $10 from the other. I called the Lodge and asked for them to review the charge and issue a credit. The female at the desk said an extra $10 was added for a "hide-a-bed".... More

Thank you for your review. I do wish you had spoken with me before you posted it though. After you called me this morning I checked into it. You were charged 70.94. The other transaction was a mistake that was corrected on your account. You had been charged the 10.95 for the taxi to the airport and when you complained... More

We booked this on the internet so we didn't know what to expect. It was a very nice surprise. They are right in the middle of renovating and enlarging everything. The room was spacious, clean and well appointed. They could include one more chair as there was only one. You have to ask for a first floor room and up... More

We stayed last year when it was Brimark Inn and it was fine. This year it was great. The rooms haven't changed but a courtyard has been added with fireplace, water feature, grill, green area, nice furniture. The rooms are nice, love the color scheme. No elevator, so request first floor if it matters. They are building an indoor pool... More

The elevator is coming very soon. It will be in our new addition. We are also putting in a small arcade and a new guest laundry. The electricians are busy wiring all these things this week. We still do not have a completion day on it all but are anxiously that day. So happy that you enjoyed your stay and... More

Thank you for the lovely review. I found you quite delightful as well. You were lucky to be here when the sun was shining it seems to have rained a little each day since you have since you left.

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
