“Very clean, nice hotel with comfortable beds- good value for the price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2009

This was a very nice hotel for the money. The rooms were immaculately clean and smelled like lilies of the valley. The beds were very comfortable too. The romm fridge was bigger than most. They also had a whole book case full of pamphlets on various, area attractions; which was helpful to us.

I stay here often on weekends. Sad to hear the normal weekend desk clerk had left. Definately a disadvantage since she was always bubbly and a ray of sunshine for your morning no matter if she was doing seven different jobs and totally stressed. Definately made the stay fabulous. The replacement. Old and not as accomadating to the guest. Breakfast good, housekeeping so so lots of remodeling taking place.

  • Liked — Normally the awesome desk clerks and like family treatment
  • Disliked — all the construction

Stopped in Sioux Falls for one night on way to WA state and had a hard time finding an available room due to a festival in town. Got a room here and through the room was small, it was fine for one night. Room was kind of outdated and tired looking, but we take our own pillows and covers, so had no issues with anything really. Breakfast was good and filled us up enough to get down the road. Would not recommed staying here for a full vacation, but OK for one night.

I booked this last minute and I was quite surprised on how nice this place was. It was nice room and was very close to the theatre. The front desk staff was very helpful with all of my questions. They even let me use to computer quick after I checked out and hour before. The only problem I had was the breakfast. You had to mix your own waffle batter for waffles. A new kind of thing for me. But they did promotly refill the food when it got low.

More information should be provided when the description on line says "cozy" room - more like size of a postage stamp. The front desk staff were not very helpful either when asking directions to the Falls and shopping. We stayed at other Days Inn later on during our vacation and was very pleased elsewhere.

We had a nice stay at this motel. The room was clean. I asked for a quiet room and got it. Prices were reasonable. It is close to several restaurants and a mall. Very helpful staff.

We found this hotel when we arrived in sioux falls at 10pm which was the last room they had open in the whole town because of Sturgis just getting over. The hotel was very dirty and I was scared to slip under the covers let alone step barefoot on the carpet. I would not recommend this hotel if you're looking for a clean one.
