“Not exceptional, but clean and comfortable.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

We arrived without a reservation about 6 PM and received a nice room--quite small but clean and comfortable. We had a good bed, desk, nice linens, wifi, excellent breakfast, micro, frig. It seemed a bit nicer than the average Days Inn. Only downside, there was no elevator and no rooms available on the ground floor so we had to carry all our bags upstairs---pretty hard for senior citizens. Truthfully, if we had arrived earlier, we probably could have had a downstairs room. We felt the room was a bit overpriced since the motel is a bit older and worn but we were happy to have a nice room at the last minute.

Room Tip: If you need help with luggage request a ground floor room---no elevator.

Dear hotgrandmacwt

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your recent stay with the Sioux Falls Days Inn Empire. I am happy that we had a room for you when you arrived in town. I am glad that you enjoyed the nice bed, desk, linens, wifi, micro-fridge and breakfast. I am sorry that we don't have an elevator, but we do always try to honor our guests requests for first floor if at all possible. If you come back and make reservations in advance, just let us know that you would like first floor. We will do our best to accommodate that request.

Thank You

We stayed here for two nights we wanted to do some shopping and sightseeing. Empire mall is very close by and falls park was only about 10 mins away. Check in was handled efficiently and quickly by a very nice young lady. Our room which was on the ground floor was clean and comfortable, if not a little small, especially the bathroom. Complementary breakfast was great. I love frest fruit and it is not always included but here is was both mornings.

We had contacted the hotel a few days before the party so that we could put up some overnight guest. They found us rooms with adjoining doors so our family could get together and enjoy our reunion. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. We are very happy

Very conveniently located hotel with plenty of restaurants nearby. Much nicer than most Days Inn's we've stayed at, and the staff was very nice. Good room, good sleep, and the chef opened up for breakfast before 6:00am as there were many early risers like ourselves who were anxious to get an early start. Very accommodating. Nice shade trees around the property too. Didn't feel like the usual concrete jungle at an Interstate exit location. Felt like we were in a nice quiet neighborhood.

With very helpful and friendly staff. Plenty of restaurants and malls a short distance away;and although here in my car;I did see a Big Truck (Day Cab) park on the quiet street here overnight.

If I ever have to stay in Sioux Falls again...This place will be it..!!

Room Tip: Call ahead as though I was here on the weekend;I think this is a rather busy place.

Dear Bumpyi52

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your recent stay at the Days Inn Empire in Sioux Falls, SD. I appreciate your comments in regards to my staff being friendly and helpful. I am glad that you found our location to be convenient for you in terms of the mall and several restaurants. Although we do not have truck parking in our lot, we have had several guests park their trucks on the street in front of the hotel. That seems to work out quite well for those guests.
