I took a trip to Sioux Falls, SD from Minneapolis, MN to visit a friend in mid-September. When looking for a hotel, I wasn't looking for luxury or upscale so much as I was looking for a well-maintained, clean facility that offered breakfast.
I found a great deal in the Quality Inn & Suites in Sioux Falls on just about every level. The room rate (which people need to remember changes based on a variety of factors), was very good for what you get. I arrived late to the hotel on a stormy night, and the overnight staff were outstandingly friendly (thank you to the three ladies, I am sorry I do not remember your names off hand). A very nice welcome, especially given the weather and the late hour and I appreciated their chipper attitudes. I was immediately surprised at the decor of the hotel. I've stayed in a lot of Quality Inn before (some are really run down), but this was by far the nicest. Modern decor, furniture and tiling.
Getting to the hotel wasn't difficult with my GPS unit, though it is definitely not in the heart of the city by any means and ended up being several miles away from all of my destinations, but that is more my own fault than the hotels. But believe me when I say there is not much (if anything) in the surrounding area without a vehicle, excluding a large truck stop/gas station. I do think the airport is nearby, however, though I may be mistaken: I do not know Sioux Falls well.
The room itself was very clean and very nice, especially for a smoking room. The beds were comfortable and the room's furniture a nice, dark cherry wood. I appreciated the refrigerator, microwave, and coffee-maker, which aren't seen as frequently at this price point, as well as the channel line-up and internet access. The bathroom was average sized, but the marble counter and curved shower rod made any time spent in it quite enjoyable.
The real highlight of this hotel, outside of the fantastic guest service and newness of the property (as well as its upkeep) was the breakfast. It's not a five star meal, but I was very surprised to see bacon and biscuits with gravy, waffles, hard-boiled eggs, oatmeal, cereal, yogurts, and a variety of other options available. This is huge for families and though I was travelling alone, this made a huge impression. If you've ever stayed at a Hampton Inn & Suites, you'll notice it is VERY similar. The breakfast area was very nice with a TV, though on a busy morning, could be considered on the smaller side.
Overall I can't recommend this hotel enough. I didn't get to talk to the front desk much beyond check in, but my experience was very positive and I wouldn't hesitate to come back. My only complaint is the location, though a bit more throrough research on my part would've remedied this.
Thanks for the great stay, everyone.
