I was on my way home in freezing rain and a blizzard when I decided to finally stop. I had no credit card and no cash so I had to have a credit card done over the phone. Steph was great in helping me and getting everything. She got me in my room with no hitch. She was even checking... More

We rented this room to take the grand kids to their indoor waterpark. The kids age 9 & 10 had fun on the large slide. The pool isn't very large but the kids still enjoyed it. There is a nice swim area for kids 8 & under, with a slide and waterfalls. The room was nice and clean. Breakfast was... More

We were in Watertown for a family funeral. The staff at the Holiday Inn Express were amazing. Very genuine, accomodating, friendly. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed. Thank You for helping to make a stressful situation much less stressful.

We requested our 2 rooms to beside each other since my parents joined us on this trip. When we got there the front desk lady said she put someone inbetween our rooms. With having a 13 month old that goes to bed by 8pm, I wanted our rooms next to each other so I could take the video baby monitor... More

Just stayed one night at this hotel to visit my husband who is working in the Watertown area for a few weeks and had a fantastic time! My older daughters (8&7) loved the waterslide and pool and the area for the younger kids was perfect for my 3 year old. My husband and I were able to relax in the... More

We stopped here as a half-way point on a trip specifically for the indoor waterpark. My toddler twins are too short for the big waterslide but the kiddie section was perfect for them. And the water was heated which was a plus for Mom and Dad. The only complaint was that I noticed the teenage lifeguard seemed more interested in... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Watertown, South Dakota Holiday Inn Express! We found the hotel to be very clean and well appointed and considering the number of guests it was very quiet! Furniture was dated but clean and in good shape.

Was in a good location. The price was right. Room was clean and comfortable. The kiddie area at the pool was nice but the actual pool was freezing cold and the hot tub was scalding hot. The waterslide was a blast though. The front desk was courteous and helpful. They served a really good breakfast also.

I found the hotel to be very clean and staff freindly. The maids in the morning smile and say hello when you walk down the hallway. Maintenance guy was always saying to have a nice day. The only problem I had was with the free breakfast. The decaf coffee was luke warm each morning so I would mix in the... More
