“Be Friendlier!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

My sister and I stopped here after a 10 day visit to SD, WY, and MT. We were looking for a hotel close to the airport that had shuttle service. I would only recommend this hotel if you are looking for a cheaper hotel where friendliness is not a priority. When I asked to check out and requested to take the 4:30 am shuttle, the employee said that I had said I was taking the 5:00 am shuttle. I had told the desk person (upon check-in ) that I had to be at the airport by 5:00 am. Even of there was a misunderstanding, I felt that he should have just said that taking the 4:30 am shuttle was not a problem instead of rolling his eyes and acting like he was very put out by my request. The whole hotel had a dingy appearance. The breakfast was good, and I did get to the airport on time, but please just be friendlier and you might draw in more people to this hotel.

Dear Kate R,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay.

I am so glad that you enjoyed the breakfast and got to the airport on time. We are only a short 5 minute drive, which may have been part of the confusion. I have discussed this issue with the entire staff so that issues like this can be eliminated in the future.

I hope you and your sister had a great time in the Midwest, and that you will give us another opportunity to show our usual hospitality, since you were not shown it on your last visit.

Safe Travels,
Lisa Hellevang, GM

Other than the fact that there was no electricity when I got there from the airport last night, I must say that the staff was very helpful to me. Wanted to stay to have the free breakfast, but had to get out of there because I needed to wait for my ride to the bus station. Never used the mini fridge (had no reason to) , or the microwave. Other than that the room was what I had totally expected. Definitely would stay here again and would recommend other people do as well.

Dear BB4Life_SD,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay at the Sioux Falls Days Inn Airport.

I am sorry that the power was out when you arrived at the hotel. A transformer in the area failed, but they had it replaced within 2 hours.

I look forward to your next visit, and hope that you can stay long enough for breakfast!

Safe Travels,

Lisa Hellevang, General Manager

We were staying overnight in Sioux Falls after a concert and were just looking for a place to stay that wasn't too expensive. We weren't going to be staying around long, so we didn't look for one with any perks. The upsides: room was clean and comfortable, had a small refrigerator, was easy to get to and had free breakfast. The not so good: Front desk staff was scarce and had no interest in helping the customers (none of the times we stopped), front hallways were dirty and made me wonder what our room would look like, advertised breakfast but was pretty empty when we were there. Another customer asked about refilling the bread for toast and got a "why are you bothering me" look and no assistance.

Bottom line, for a cheap hotel, if you're not looking for anything extra, it will do. But with all of the other hotels available, this one might have to step up their game to keep attracting customers.

Stayed here on the way to Yellowstone and thought it would be okay for a night and easy off the hwy. Wrong....The lobby smelled like stale smoke and room smelled like over done air freshner. Sheets were dirty and bed was uncomfortable. Woke early to get on the road and grabbed the free breakfast. Was not worth the price. .. Gross.

I read the last review and the woman stated that the people that work there are creepy. I would disagree. The man that helped us was very polite and didn't seem creepy at all. There is a creepiness factor but that comes from the customers who are staying there. When we walked in there was a man playing cards with his family in the dining area. This wouldn't have been a big deal if he had his shirt on. People have to eat here in the morning! His shirt was off and he was covered in hair-really gross. We stayed in this hotel a few years ago so I kinda knew what to expect. The rooms are average and for the price it's not too bad. If you are passing through town it is the way to go. This area of Sioux Falls is dumpy-it's no Rapid City. There is breakfast in the morning and another traveler commented that it was worst he had ever seen. That is really over dramatic. I felt the breakfast was good-no issues. I would get down there early as the food goes fast. They take pets if you need to bring your pooches. Room was clean.
