The hotel was extremely clean, from my room to the dining area. The dining area was exceptionally clean and tidy. The food served was fresh and the selection was marvelous. I stayed with my dog and the room I was in was very clean. It had everything I needed. The front office staff, JoAnn and Machelle were absolutely accommodating and... More

The room was clean and larger than I expected, although the bathroom was really small. I did not notice a smoke smell. The breakfast was good with a decent selection, waffles, hard boiled eggs, doughnuts, toast, fruit, yogurt, juice, and coffee. Front desk staff was very friendly. I would stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel for one night on the way through. Generally the hotel was nice. The room was good, the breakfast was fine. The complaint we have is the smoke smell. It was very prominent in the hall ways. This may not bother everybody, but my wife is quite sensitive to it, so it wasn't ideal for us.

Very few hotels/motels in Sioux Falls, SD allow pets. If you're traveling with Fido, there will be limited availability, and some hotels look pretty creepy. With that said, the Days Inn was very clean. It is an older property, but one could tell that time and effort had been taken to keep it looking as nice as possible. I was... More

The Days Inn Empire provides everything I need at a very fair price. The front desk folks are helpful and friendly, my room has a new bed, new carpet and is clean. The free breakfast with hot waffles and several other items is perfect.

Stayed here for 3 nights back in September. Room was a little small, but very clean and comfortable. Breakfast wasn't too bad, but I understand they have added some foods to the breakfast buffet. All staff members were polite. Good location; within a short driving distance to several attractions. I would stay here again.

This is a good place for a one-night layover. As other reviewers have mentioned, the rooms are small and basic, but the bed was clean, firm, and comfortable. We didn't have time for the breakfast, but did check it out. It was pretty basic. But for the price, this was a good place to stay and an easy off and... More

Rooms are very clean, if small. The complimentary breakfast was outstanding! Good location-very convenient. Staff is friendly and helpful. Called us after we checked in to assure the room was satisfactory. Great! Only negative about this facility was the noisy AC/Heat system. It was very loud and made sleeping soundly difficult. Other than that, Thumbs Up!
