We stayed here over the Thanksgiving holiday because we were traveling with dogs and our options were limited. Seeing that this hotel was not only pet friendly, but didn't charge for pets, we decided to take a chance after reading some reviews.
I am so glad we did! No, this is not the Ritz Carlton, but we weren't expecting that. It is, however, a very reasonably priced motel that has interior hallways with exterior exits for ground level rooms (perfect for dog owners who have to take the dogs out but don't want to walk all over the hotel to reach a door out), a good continental breakfast (bagels, English muffins, mini muffins, cereal, toast, doughnuts), ample parking, a central location (just off I29) and extremely helpful, knowledgeable and friendly staff. When I locked myself out of my room about 3 minutes after checking in, I quickly got a new card that I didn't have to immediately return.
We booked a non-smoking king bed room and it was HUGE. HUGE! We could have parked our car inside along with all the furnishings. It had a mini-fridge, microwave, desk, TV armoire, luggage bench, mirror with sink, closet area and ample room aside from all of that. I meant to take pictures and forgot but it was easily one of the largest hotel rooms I've ever been in. The bathroom was pretty standard size except the tub was a giant whirlpool tub. I don't know if these rooms used to be suites or what, but we were pleasantly surprised with the size of everything. Furnishings and decor showed slight signs of wear, but certainly nothing looked shabby or damaged and everything worked perfectly.
Our only complaint was the noise-ground level rooms walk out into the parking lot from the exterior exits and you could hear a lot of vehicle and car door noise. Shutting the curtains works to shut out bright headlights at night, though. We couldn't hear other guests in their rooms, we could hear a lot of hallway noise. Not great, but certainly not unexpected given that it's a hotel with lots of guests and our room faced a parking lot. Bring some ear plugs and you'll be fine for sleep.
All in all we were delighted with our stay. The hotel exceeded our expectations in terms of service and room quality for the price and loved that they're pet friendly. We had some relatives who were also traveling with a dog stay at the Red Rock Inn and they had a horrible experience-and paid more for it! We would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend it if you're looking for a budget hotel in Sioux Falls.
