“Awesome location - nice hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

This is a very nice hotel with good beds, a nice continental breakfast with hot oatmeal and several rotating hot items daily. The exercise room is remodeled with 2 treadmills, 1 eliptical, a weight machine - very nice. The best part of the stay though is the downtown location near the falls and some really neat restaurants and bars around the corner on Philips Ave. Way better staying down here than by the Empire Mall where tons of htls are.
Air conditioners work great at this hjotel - our room was like a meat locker on a very hot weekend. The only negative of this hotel is the breakfast room is too small and sometimes it is hard to find a table and you can hear people walking above you in the floor above.
Will definitely stay here again - really charming part of town and continually getting better.

Room Tip: Ask for top floor so you don't hear people walking above you or bring a noise maker to your room...

We are glad you were able to enjoy our exercise room and location. Great that you were able to enjoy the downtown area. Sorry for the noise you heard above you. We hope you visit us again soon.

We stayed at the CIS on a Thursday night and were welcomed by the front desk person who was very friendly and accomodating. We stayed in a 2Q room and it was clean and inviting. The breakfast was very good and was stocked with both hot and cold items. The location was neat as it was close to downtown eateries and our family enjoyed the walk down by the river. The pool was smaller but the kids still enjoyed the water.

I just finished staying one night at this hotel and it was quite good. It is right downtown . .within easy walking distance of both the falls, as well as, the downtown core. As Sioux Falls is a relatively small town, you can just park your car and walk.

Room Tip: I would just stay away from the on-site bar.

This hotel is conveniently located near Philips Avenue where you can just walk over and view the sculpture walk. As well, the trolley goes right in front of the hotel (stops about a block away). The first room we had, carpet was wet near a/c. They quickly changed us to another room. The room we had was very nice. Mini fridge and microwave. The breakfast area is quite small tho. The breakfasts were very good and staff was on top of refilling necessary items.

nice and clean, all over. pool was nice and so was the hot tub. rooms were clean beds were very comfortable, we have a sleep number bed at home so a lot of other beds are uncomfortable but these beds were fantastic. Can't say enough about the breakfast, from waffles to build your own burritos, yogurt, fruit, granola, cereal, porridge. a choice for everyone. beautiful area close to downtown and right along the sioux river walking path and falls park. the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Stayed for 4 nights and not one complaint about the hotel. I will stay there again if ever back in that area.

Everything here was fine. The highlights were the excellent continental breakfast and the very comfortable room. The rates were also very reasonable. The best value that we had on our entire trip! The only cavit would be that the pool was quite small and had no "walk in" steps (only ladders) for the little ones. Located on the river walk, it is only a short walk to the falls. Really nice!

Room Tip: River side rooms have the best views.

We have stayed here before a couple of times. It's cramped for parking, but usually you can get a decent spot. The rates are reasonable. The lobby is somewhat inviting. The staff as most Country Inns are not trained well. But we had no complaints about our check in. The breakfast was great and the staff very attentive. Again a small space but it works. The rooms have been updated and were clean and fresh smelling, over all another good stay. We will be back again.
We went to the restaurant and found a sports bar, I ordered take out and they delivered it took about 1/2 hour and was good and reasonable. But I would never eat in that place, not inviting at all.

Room Tip: I don't think there any bad rooms.
