“Very large place”

Offers military discount. Has an indoor water park that is included for quests for the families and an outdoor pool for those who don't want to hear the screaming kids. Food from the bar is good.

Just went I thought a Best Western couldn't get any better we stayed here. It is south of 90 but worth the short (five minutes) drive. We had been traveling so went to the bar for happy hour and the bartender we had was the BEST. This darling bar has atmosphere.
The room was perfect and we became addicted to Best Western for their prices and quality but this, again, was a favorite. Very quiet room with comfortable beds.
Also, the restaurant for breakfast was reasonable with quick friendly service. Plus the PRICE was cheaper than in the city. HIGHLY recommend.

We checked into the famly suite which had a bedroom with two queen beds with a family room. We loved it! We were able to eat our meals as a family together at the dining table. The kids loved the waterpark. It kept them occupied between outings. Our entire family had an awesome experience staying here. A definate visit when we make it back to Sioux Falls:)

Room Tip: This hotel does not offer a free breakfast. However, there is a resteraunt located inside the hotel...

Once again we were in Sioux Falls SD and stayed at the Best Western Ramkota Hotel. They have done improvements such as TV's, the lobby area. It is exceptionally clean and welcoming.

The room we had was really nice and spotless. It was quiet even though there were several children nearby. The ac worked well the only down side was the water pressure in the shower but we brought it to the attention of the front desk when we checked out and they said they would repair it.

One thing that is really appreciated is the "Clean remote" a covering that is over the remote control that gets changed with each new occupant. More hotels should use this.

As usual this is a great place to stay, the rooms are clean and its quiet. The price is good. You can eat at the hotel or the local place called the Rolling PIn is near by which is where we go. Also you can have pets at this hotel and there is no additional fee which pet owners can really appreciate.

Room Tip: If traveling with pets and using crates for them its easier to get a room closer to an exit door jus...

Thank you so much for the wonderful comments and your loyality......we do not take it for granite! We appreciate our good neighbor the Rolling Pin, but please try the Maple Street Cafe' too......kids eat for .99, and we've worked hard to offer good food at a fair price.

I do hope we see you again.

Stayed here early June with my husband and two boys. The boys loved both the outdoor and indoor pools! The indoor pool was quite busy but what else would one expect on a Saturday in June. The indoor pool area has lots of tables and chairs for the adults to hang out. Would be a fun place for a group of people. There are rooms that have direct access to the pool area. If you want someplace quiet, this would not be it. Beds were comfortable. We did have problems with our air conditioning not working. We did not call the front desk untiil we checked out as we didn't wan't someone coming to fix it in the middle of the night. We thought the room would evently get cooler. It did not but the hotel discounted our room to 50% off. Very considerate.

Room Tip: If you have kids, you might want to have the pool rooms otherwise just ask for one of the more cent...

The rooms were old! The door only closed when it was slammed. The floors were dirty, the tub didn't drain. The AC didn't cool. The room itself was terrible. You heard every noise through the door. The only thing that saved the room itself was the TV. The waterpark, which was included in the price, was nice. Too bad it was salt water, but otherwise, it was amazing. We had so much fun bonding and having a good time. I wish the rooms were just as nice! When we were checking out, the cleaning crew was cleaning the rooms with doors wide open. They were disrespecting fellow co-workers and guests. It was just rude!

Thank you so much for your comments; everyone help us learn and be better. For the negative comments, I assure you they will be addressed and not who we are. As for the rooms, the TV's you mention are brand new, as are the fridges, and microwaves on the way. The restaurant, lounge and lobby are newly done. Improvements will continue. AND the salt water is going away....in the process.
Thank you for making memories at the Best Western PLUS Ramkota Hotel, we hope to see you again!
