“Very good, excellent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

First a disclaimer, I'm in the hospitality business and my wife and I currently own and operate our own property in another city.

This appears to be a very well run motel and a good value. The room we had on the second floor was clean, quiet and everything was in working order, with the exception of the bath tub which drained slowly ... a very common problem that is easily resolved. The free continental breakfast was minimal, which was as expected. Motels in the economy segment generally have basic breakfasts. The WiFi worked well and was speedy. The parking lot was ample and well lit. Our room did not have a microwave, refrigerator or coffee maker, but again, given the price, these were not expected. If these items has been in the room and the continental breakfast a little better we would have raised the rating to five dots. Overall we were well satisfied with our stay at this property.

Room Tip: We did not see an elevator, so if stairs are an issue book a ground floor room.

Dear Dean B,

Thank you for the disclaimer of being a hotel owner. Most of all thank you for the great review. Myself as a hotel manager I can be very critical of other hotels that I visit, because of knowing what the staff and management goes through day in and day out, I also try to be very helpful. Taking what I would like to expect in a hotel stay I strive to teach the staff here the same. Golden rule treat others as you want to be treated. That is how I train each of the staff members here and I see by your review that was protrayed in your visit. Thank you and we hope to see you again next time you travel to SIoux Falls.

During our 4200 mile journey on this 6 day trip, my family and I decided to stay at the Red Roof Inn on the last night of the Trip. We were greeted whole-heartedly and expeditiously processed. We had been on the road for over 18 hours and we were so tired they assisted us in every way knowing we were exhausted they showed us were everything was and were always willing to give us a hand. That is the Mid-Western Hospitality I am always looking for in a hotel. My hats off to the Staff of Red Roof Inn, Sioux Falls, SD.

Room Tip: Don't follow an outdated GPS directions, go left not right when exiting I-29 North.

We were pleasantly surprised to find such a clean and comfortable hotel that allowed us to bring our beautiful boxer along with no extra charge. The room was well maintained and VERY clean. Nothing shabby. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The charge was well below the "first rate" hotels but the value wasn't. I would stay again in a heartbeat! Irene Z East Grand Forks MN

Room Tip: our room was perfect

Excellent upkeep, very comfortable stay. This Red Roof Inn is very ordinary looking from the outside, but on the inside very clean, newer furnishings, carpet, beds are comfortable, and very well maintained.

The rooms are rather small, but to be expected for a budget chain.

For the price, a very good value.

I know that many Red Roof Inns are not this nice. It all depends on the franchisee and manager and employees.

Very helpful gentleman at the desk on check in on afternoon of 9/16/13. He was the only person at the desk, yet accommodated all the check-ins as well as possible. Note to manager: you need another person at check in at this time of day.

Dear billywilliams2,

I agree we need more employee's like the young man that checked you in. I am happy that he was able to balance such a busy time and leave such a good impression on you. I also see the updates to our property have impressed you as well. Thank you for the comments and just to let you that there are more changes to come to our property for when the next you visit. Thank you again for choosing the Red Roof Inn.

Very clean, modern, and economical. I always try to find a Red Roof Inn becaise I know the quality of them is consistent and will have the best prices. And many times I find a coupon while traveling and get an even bettrer deal

We took the king suite as rooms were hard to come by in Sioux Falls. It was large and comfortable for the price. The plumbing was loud. There was an explanation about new showerheads that were faulty and they were waiting for replacement parts. What struck me was the morning manager was unkempt though the woman at the desk looked professional. And the gaggle of people smoking outside near the front door.

Dear KathyWalt,

I am very happy to see you enjoyed our suite. I am how ever sorry that the noise from the shower heads was disconcerting. As you stated it was an issue we were very much aware of and it has been corrected. Thank you for your review and we hope to see you again soon.

This is the best red roof inn I have ever stayed in and exceeds all expectations from the time u walk in to the hotel to the time u leave. I had called since I drove all night from the east coast to ask if I can check in early. Stacy is an awesome manager of the hotel who is very helpful, respectful, and accommodating and the room was superb. When I arrived, Chris had checked me in honoring the roomsaver coupon with professionalism, friendly, and helpful as Stacy is. Pam is very friendly and helpful and everyone who I have encountered are very friendly and helpful. Rod was friendly and helpful as he provided good directions on how to get to the mall. I see that Stacy runs a "tight ship" but it is for good reason and the best customer service shines from every member of her crew. Everyone there will take the time to help, answer a question and all the staff is very respectful in all ways. I have zero complaints and only good things come to mind!!
Room wise the room is superb! Fresh clean room, bed is awesome providing an excellent night's rest and 5 star sleep quality, everything works and the bathroom was clean and exceeded expectations as though it was a brand new bathroom ready to be used for the first time. The desk is wonderful as it is helpful to study on with a comfortable leather executive chair, and the giant LG TV was great as well. AC provided cold fresh air and a wonderful first class five star hotel hotel experience is what comes to mind. They provide a well variety in breakfast with a nice dining room to sit and watch TV while eating. The lobby is warm and inviting in the decor and every person is welcomed and acknowledged which is the key concept in customer service to be noticed and helped when present. I love how they always provide coffee and always snacks 24-7 which is great! Price wise it is excellent and provides a great value for the buck compared to some of the area establishments but in my mind its a 5 star hotel and they honor the roomsaver dot com coupon. They have reasonable weekly rates too and I wish every RED ROOF INN in the US is as superior as this establishment since they know what customer service is all about, very courteous, friendly, helpful, respectful and professional and this was definitely a 5 star experience at a very reasonable price-only good things come to mind and not one single complaint at all. It's a very well maintained establishment and there is a 24 hour Shell gas station with mini mart nearby, 24 hour IHOP nearby, and the Empire Mall is minutes away. Any nearby convenience is located minutes away from this wonderful establishment. I have no reservations in my mind and only positive recommendations about this establishment!
