“Comfort & Service in Downtown Sioux Falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2011

Highly recommmend this hotel. Great location right on the river; only 2 blocks north of a vibrant downtown scene, and 4 blocks south of a wonderful park surrounding the famous 'Falls'. Everything about this hotel was a pleasant surprise. We had a 'suite' room with a livingroom and separate bedroom. Very nice for a 4 day stay. Internet worked well in the room (good enough to surf and stream a radio station at the same time). The Grill bar/cafe was surprisingly good. We had soup, salad, and sandwiches which were all well prepared. The biggest surprise was the breakfast. Though the hotel website said 'continental' breakfast, it was actually a full buffet. There was the ubiquitous waffel maker, very popular just the same, but they also had scrambled eggs, bacon, and potatoes. The cereal and bread bar had good bulk yogurt, fresh fruit, and granola as well as the usual cereals, and breads for the toaster. THe coffee was plenty good enough, not watery or acidic.
Staying here was quite a good value, all around.

The hotel is in the midst of a makeover., The exterior was nice - situated close to downtown and on the river. The interior rooms needed work. The bathroom door did not close easily and was made of metal so it was heavy to close and the bath vanity was chipped. Breakfast room was good and food was decent - about what you'd expect from complimentary breakfast. Guest services were very responsive to any questions/concerns.

I have been miserable since I stayed. I am covered in hundreds of itchy bed bug bites. Stay elsewhere.

Downtown Sioux Falls has a lot to offer. I would highly recommend this as a home base to see the town.
The rooms are showing just a bit of wear--nothing disgusting, but they look like they could stand to be refreshed. The common spaces are very small (the property is hemmed in by the river), especially the breakfast room. At the pool area, they provided pool toys for the kids, which they just loved. It is an easy walk to places like the Philips Street Dinner or the Washington Pavilion. That is a real plus.

We stopped here on a recent roadtrip from the blackhills. We loved this hotel. You can walk to the downtown shops and Falls park. The best thing is they have a bar and grill on site that was really good. Had the Walleye Pike baked and it was the best I had in all of SD.

The people that work here are all great. They seem like they actually want to be at work. I suggest that you get a room here, walk two blocks down the street to a place called Monks and chill out and have a night cap or two.
