“Fun Place for Kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2011

Nice, clean hotel. We came for a mini-vacation. It was during the week.
Room: Clean, AC worked well. Door lock was sticky. Bathroom gets cramped. Beds/Pillows weren't the most comfortable.

Pool: This was the main selling point for us. The kids really enjoyed it. There are numerous pools. the pirate ship pool is perfect for toddlers. It is 1 ft in depth with many slides & fountains to play around. The big slide is fun as well. Wristbands are required but it wasn't really policed. Best time to swim is right after lunch as there are few people there.

Restaurant: Pretty good food at non-inflated prices.

We'll be back again.

My son and I stayed at this hotel on our way from Michigan to Oregon. We just happened to stumble upon this hotel as we did not make reservations in advance as we were just traveling until we got tired for the day. This was a perfect find as my son (age 12) had lots of energy to burn after being in the car for 12 hours. He loved the slides and pools and ended up playing pool basketball with some other kids. This hotel is also nice for adults as they can sit at the restaurant and lounge area around the pool. My only complaint about the hotel is that the rooms are not very sound proof so you hear everyone opening and closing their doors. Other than that, I would stay here again!!

We just happened upon this hotel traveling "out west." This is a fantastic hotel. We got a spacious king suite for less than $100 and I do mean spacious living room, bedroom and bathroom. The restaurant's food was delicious and we got coupons at the front desk for food and adult beverages. If you have children, this hotel is a must. They have an indoor water park with a large bar area around it. We are empty nesters, but enjoyed watching the kids (and parents) have a blast in the water park. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. We got very lucky when we found this hotel on the road.

It's obvious from reading the reviews here that this place needs new management. This is a great hotel with nice rooms, friendly staff, good food and a fun water park. So if you stay here and don't run into any problems you'll probably enjoy it. If you have a problem and would like some help from the management you'll wish you stayed elsewhere. Someone asked the question: “Why isn't the Ramada ranked higher?” The answer is Management! As soon as they replace the management this hotel's ranking will go higher. ...until then, I'm not returning.

Ramada not only has a fantastic staff who all very friendly and outgoing; but their rooms and hospitality is fabulous. We had a suite which included a 2 person hottub that was located on main floor of pool area. These rooms are perfect for a graduation get together like what mine was to a family who wants to have a birthday party for their kids. The pool area is by far the best I've seen for all ages. It is very clean and the temperature for the kids area is perfect. Their waterslide is awesome as we all had a blast on it. And what's even better on friday and saturday nights from 11 pm to midnight! Castaways and the Tiki Bar are a great place to get together with family and friends. Trust me everyone if your coming to Sioux Falls from out of town or need a place to throw a party the Ramada Inn is the place to be. The entire staff treats you very well!!! I know that we will be coming back time in time again... Thanks Ramada for a great time and fun place to stay. P.S. We never even left the hotel we were having that much fun inside the hotel either swimming, at the Tiki Bar, or in our suite!!! For the price of stay you won't find a better place to stay; it's simply the best out there..

Truly one of the best hotel experiences we have ever encountered. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous in assisting us with everything we needed. The rooms were very nice; linens were clean; extras were provided with no hassle; beds big and comfortable and plenty of towels were provided. The restaurant was reasonably priced and the food fresh and delicious.
