“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

This hotel looks smells and feels like home. It is fairly new and has all modern appliances. They have a very nice indoor pool and a great staff that is friendly and courteous. The breakfast was great and check-out was very easy. Definitely would stay here again if I pass through.

The room I was in was okay, however, had a few problems. The window on the room looked a little questionable and being a single female traveler, that makes me a little nervous. The room itself was a mix between new and old. TV, bed, counter top of the sink were new, pretty much everything else was old. The floor of the the tub/shower bowed a bit when I stepped in it. I will give it that the bed was very comfortable. Staff were also very nice. Was surrounded by lots of shopping options and several food options very close.

Got a great deal online for this hotel - so a great value! Comfy beds, clean bathroom, nice shower & overall very comfortable! Perfect for our short stay. Saw that they had continental breakfast as well, smelled good, but we already had breakfast plans!
Very centrally located - the shopping mall & restaurants are nearby, and close access to I-29. Would definitely stay here again if in Sioux Falls!

A little pricey for what you get. Too many smoking rooms. It makes the entire hotel smell. Breakfast was excellent, staff were great. Not very soundproof.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2011

I made reservations online and got a great rate! This hotel is directly across the street from the mall, which is super nice but, I didn't look at that map to realize you'd have to cross a major street to actually walk to the mall. The room was very nice, spacious, had shampoo, soap, mouthwash. The room was also extremely clean, which was awesome. Breakfast was really good too! There were mini muffins, bagels, bread, jelly, peanut butter, a huge variety of coffee creamers and such, ham, cheese omelets, biscuits and sausage gravy, four types of juice, milk, and coffee. The breakfast room attendant was super nice and helped entertain our two toddlers. The only complaint I had is that there was nothing on the website to indicate to me that the pool was out of order at the time of our stay, which was hard for the kids to take. I understand that things happen but if hotels are going to offer reservations online, they need to offer up to date information about the facility online as well.
Overall it was a nice, clean, place to stay!
