“Right on the river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

This is a standard Country Inn hotel in a great location. Half the rooms face the river and the lovely, 14 mile (or so) paved River Walk for bikers, joggers, walkers and special events. Also, the hotel is just a short walk away from the many restaurants, clubs, etc on Phillips Ave. and a 2 minute walk from the Wild Sage Grille, an excellent local restaurant. The free breakfast buffet had plenty of choices. We also enjoyed the freshly baked cookies in the afternoon. The rooms are clean, beds are comfortable. During one of our stays the king bed had a nightstand on only one side of the bed, which was very inconvenient for the one of us.This was not the case in our room during a later visit. I assume the difference was that the 1st room had a door to provide access to the room next door, which was not the case in the 2nd room. They have a small restaurant/bar on site with outdoor seating on the river - a pleasant spot in good weather that is also popular with the locals.

Room Tip: Even numbered rooms have a river view.

This hotel was perfect. It's right off of the interstate. The hotel serves a really nice breakfast and Monday through Thursday they serve supper. The supper was a nice surprise complete with a small salad bar. They also have beer and wine at dinner if you choose. I would recommend this hotel.

This is a new high rise Country Inn in the downtown area which is located right on the pretty Big Sioux RIver. It's right next to the paved river walk which goes for 18 miles around Sioux Falls (great for jogging, etc.). It's only a 1/4 mile from Falls Park and an easy walk to the downtown entertainment district along Phillips Avenue, which has good restaurants and bars. Our King Room overlooked the river---very nice.Thus, the highlight is the location, as in other respects it's your typical Country Inn with clean rooms, nice amenities, free breakfast, etc. The fitness center and pool are average for the chain. I found the lady at the front desk to be rather abrupt and not real friendly. There is a casual restaurant at the lower level of the hotel building---don't think it's owned by Country Inn, though. All in all, a nice stay with a good view.

I stayed here with family one night on the way to Yellowstone. Our room was clean enough and modern enough. But the room was little small compared to other hotels. Breakfast was ok. There is a bike/walk path behind the hotel leading to the Falls Park which we took advantage of. That was nice. Unless I have some business to do in downtown, I may look for a better value somewhere else next time.

I was a bit leary to book this based on other reviews, but it was fine. Stayed here Mon-Thurs for a mini getaway vacation. Hotel was clean, beds very, very comfortable--including the pillows! Breakfast was typical. Was very convenient to everything in Sioux Falls and easy to find/get to. We would stay here again.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

This place is getting a little run down. It is clear that Country Inn has not spent money at this location in quite a while. Our room was so worn that my wife had difficulty sleeping because she suspected the place of having bed bugs. It seemed like a place that might. We didn't experience any bed bugs, but it wouldn't have surprised me. I seriously thought about moving us to a different hotel but it was storming outside. Should I expect more for $150? The parking lot is tiny and inconvenient. The staff was nice and helpful, and the breakfast was good for this type of hotel, but I was happy to leave.

Room Tip: There have to be better options in Sioux Falls. I wouldn't stay here again until they update.

Stayed here for one night on our way out west. NIce and clean and great free breakfast. Perfect location. Short river walk to Falls Park and Philips Street . Nice sculptures to look at on Philips street and AMAZING food at "TIme to Dine" on Philips street. Our 3 teens enjoyed our one night stay here . :)
