“My "home away from home"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

I travel regularly to Sioux Falls for business and always stay at the Country Inn and Suites. Recently rennovated, the property is clean and inviting. Continental breakfast, workout room, pool, laundry, restaurant/lounge, free wifi and daily newspaper all available for my use. The manager and all staff are friendly and helpful. I am treated as a valued guest and greeted by name. I initially stayed because it was a convenient location; I return and recommend it to others because it is a great place to stay. I would also recommend joining the Carlson Club.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the river have great views.

Stayed for $77 for an overnight Avera Hospital stay. This is probably the closest hotel to Avera. We had to be at the hospital by 6:45 AM and had only about a five minute drive. Great facility. Marvelous, friendly, helpful staff. Staff is bubbly and friendly with everyone. The desk clerk told me the motel was 16 years old, but it has been recently renovated, and looks and smells like new. Rooms are sparkling clean. Has an adjacent restaurant, with good food.

Room Tip: located in downtown Sioux Falls, on the river, close to fine dining, entertainment, and near the Si...

We thoroughly enjoyed this riverside hotel in the heart of Sioux Falls, SD. The service is spectacular, what one would expect from a four star(plus). The room was spacious, very clean, well appointed for business travel, free wifi, free hot breakfast, on site pub, and 24 hour fresh tea and coffee. The parking was free. The decor is fresh and modern. This is a great break from your ordinary hotel chains, with a five star location. The management here has a winning formula for a relaxing hotel stay. Check out time is at noon, so enjoy that extra sleep or swim before you check out.

I have stayed at Many Country Inn and Suites, But this property stands out by a Far!
Awsome Staff, Right downtown Sioux Falls, SD near many resturants and things to do. Right on the river! In addition to everything this property has a pool, hot tub and resturant and bar right on property! Being a Carlson member they were so kind as to upgrade me to a executive room with a jacuzzi! Thank you Very much for your services!

Room Tip: if available request a room with a river view, I didnt have one but I bet its very nice

Location is very convenient and staff was very helpful. Our executive room had jacuzzi and comfortable bed. It was quite large and well equipped. Two problems, one most likely a weekend problem only: The breakfast room was mobbed on Saturday and Sunday. There was no place to sit for 15 minutes and everything was running out.There was NO COFFEE for at least the first 10 minutes. On Sunday there was only one worker who was trying very hard, but she just couldn't keep up with the mob. The breakfast had healthy choices including very good oatmeal and apples and oranges (but avoid the frozen mixed fruit -- it was disgusting). The second problem was the soundproofing. If anyone close to us used their jacuzzi, it sounded like it was right in our room -- really LOUD -- especially at 2 am. I would come here again, but only during the week.

Room Tip: In back and nowhere near a room with jacuzzi

We are sorry you experienced some issues while at the property. We have taken your comments and tried to correct them. We now are using our large meeting room as overflow for the days breakfast is crowded and always have two people scheduled on busy mornings. Glad that overall your stay was good. Hope to see you again.

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 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.
