“Great Place to Stay!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2009

We have stayed at the Days Inn Empire several times and each time has been great. Everyone is very helpful at the front desk and the rooms are very clean. The best part is we travel with our doxie (who is our 4-legged kid!) and can always stay here. We get a room close to the exit which works wonderful for our duties out! We would highly recommend staying here. The location is super for fgetting around Sioux Falls!!! We'll be back!!!

We stay at the Days Inn every time we go to Sioux Falls, SD. Last year my husband broke his ankle and we stayed here many times. On December 22 we had to go to Sioux Falls so my husband could have surgey. The only rooms that were left were on the 2nd floor, since he was using crutches they let us have the handicap room and gave it to us without charging extra money. We were coming back home on the 23 , but since he couldn't get out of the hospital until late , I called the motel and they gave us the handicap room again. I also asked them to leave the wheel chair by the front door, so when we arrived at the motel I was able to get my husband into the hotel without any trouble. They have always gone beyond the call of duty for us.

We had stayed at a bad hotel the night before in Webster, South Dakota at the Day County Inn (would not recommend at all). I'm not sure if that's made this hotel seems so wonderful. Everything appeared to be very clean and the price was very reasonable. Only downfall on the rooms was the size - if you are looking for a spacious hotel room, this is not it.

Thank your for staying at the Days Inn Empire location. I am not sure which room you stayed in but you may have stayed in our economy size room which is smaller than our standard size room. When you are back in the area, please make sure to ask for a standard size room so that we can provide a little more space for you. I appreciate your comments and hope you will stop again on your next trip to Sioux Falls. If there is anything you need, please let me know.

If your looking for a Hotel that not going to break your wallet then Days Inn on Gateway in Sioux Falls located by the Empire mall is the place to stay. The rooms are clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. I have stayed there many times this past year. Everytime I stay there no suprises. Our stay has always been excellent one. The rooms are clean and have microwave, refrighter, coffee machine and hair dryer. The hotel also has HBO. There a movie theater across the parking lot, couple Malls close by for all your shopping needs and great Resturants. The have a excellent free breakfast. They do not have a Pool.

I had been traveling east bound on Interstate 90. My plans were to stay overnight in Sioux Falls. Luckily, I saw the billboard for Days Inn, stating that they were located at exit 77 off Interstate 29. This was perfect, as this is the interstate that I would be traveling on next. As it turned out, this was excellent for me. I could rest with peace of mind, as I was already over on Interstate 29. The room was extremely comfortable and I was able to rest with easy as I knew that I was already on the right track for in the morning. In the morning I enjoyed the neat breakfast they had. It was pouring down rain. I asked the desk clerk how far it was to Omaha (my destation) she informed me that it was only a three hour drive. That was important information, I knew that I could just relax and wait until after daylight to continue my trip. Everything about my stay here was most helpful. I ended up staying at Days Inn on the return trip. I will pretty much always pick Days Inn from now on as I truly enjoyed my stay for lots of reasons.
