All I can say is "WOW". We stayed at 6 different hotels on a road trip, and we were completeley blown away by the quality of this hotel.
This hotel is conveniently located right off of I-29, in a very well developed area close to many shops and restaurants. The friendliness of the front desk staff was unbelieveable, we had trouble getting the door to our room to unlock and they fixed the problem immediately.
We were also impressed with the cleanliness of the lobby area, which contained a large flat-screen tv as well as a business center with 3 computers.
Our room was larger than what we have been used to with the Holiday Inn Express chain, and it was the first time I have ever seen a flat-screen TV in a hotel room.
If there is a better place to stay in Soiux Falls, I would like to see it, as this hotel exceeded all of our expectations.

What a great hotel! We arrived late and couldn't find the hotel. The attendant at the desk was extremely helpful and patient, guiding us in by phone.
When we arrived, we were pleased to find a beautiful, sparkling clean room with a nice view.
All around wonderful experience. I would have liked to stay here for the rest of the week!

This exceeded our expectations!! The rooms were large and very clean. The beds were fabulous and so was the shower. The pool area was fun, but I was told you needed wristbands to enter the pool area and ride the slide but many in the area did not have on wristbands which seemed like a ripoff for us. The slide was fun and the waterpark area for littler ones was great. Both the hot tub and the slide were out of service in the morning which was very disappointing to us.

Absolutely wonderful, hotel. It's located close to the highway. Close by are a huge variety of stores, resturants etc.

The hotel is new, clean with lots of little extras. By the elevator and the door, they post weather reports for the week. In the room they have contact information if you need weather/road reports. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is always a hot cup of coffee available. We have a King suite and it's great. Spacious room, wth a fridge, mirco wave, coffeemaker, fridge. The bathroom is clean with good counter space. The toliet paper is not that cheap scratchy stuff. My only complaint is that they have the disposable glasses/mugs instead of glass/ceramic one.

The screened windows open which is great so we can get some fresh air. If you have a computer they offer wireless and a bridge if you need one.

There is a pool, excersice (adult only) room and a breakfast area.

This is a wonderful hotel, great location...I'll definately be back.

We just returned from a mini-getaway weekend at the H.I. Express in Sioux Falls, SD. This hotel is easy to find. The location is ideal. It's close to I-29, but not so close that you hear traffic noise. It's also near the major shopping area of Sioux Falls. Everything was clean and outside noises were muffled to our satisfaction. The breakfast room was large and had almost everything I could want in a breakfast. Our mattress was more comfortable than the one I have at home and we had two firm and two soft pillows.

The only negative things we encountered were fairly minor. We had a junior whirlpool suite. The jets in our whirlpool didn't have much oomph. It felt more like I was sitting in a carbonated beverage than in a whirlpool. Also, our bathroom was a considerable distance from the bed and required maneuvering around two corners and through a sitting area in the dark. (I wouldn't want to be sleeping in that room if I had a stomach virus.) A nightlight in the bathroom would have been greatly appreciated.

I would definitely stay here again. This motel is consistent with the high quality I have come to appreciate in the Holiday Inn Express chain.

We stayed here for 2 nights on an October weekend. It was extremely convenient to find (we came from Wisconsin and our family came from Rapid City). We didn't eat the breakfast so can't comment on that. Hotel is clean. The rooms were very nice and had small fridges which we really appreciated. Nice toiletries. Nice staff. Easy and efficient check-in/check-out.

The location is wonderful. Tons of restaurants nearby, as well as a large multiplex. The mall is just down the road.

Perfect if you need a clean room with a few amenities at a really good price.
