My daughter and I stayed here, while we attended her orientation at SDSU. It was a very clean and comfortable place to stay. Just a couple things that I would like to see changed. The beds were not very comfortable. They had some kind of plastic mattress pads on, that kind of reminded me of a childs waterproof mattress pad.... More

I have stayed at many hotels and this one was average. The room was not the cleanest. The bed was really comfortable which was nice. The staff seemed indifferent, not really caring that they messed up my bill multiple times. Overall, I would only stay here again if it was late and I had been traveling.

We stay here for state FFA. Everything was nice. Except for the front counter lady. She blamed us instead of the other chapter. We didn't appreciate her. Hate her. We loved the food, and everything else. Good night sleep.

The hotel was great in every way. Check-in was smooth with no hassle. Beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was very typical for Holiday Inn except this location does NOT burn the eggs. Check out was quick and easy and again with no hassle. Parking was plentiful and wide. I'll stay here again.

This hotel is in a quiet location but still close enough to the Interstate for easy on and off. Applebee's within walking distance. Great selection for breakfast with hot and cold items. Nice, clean and spacious room with super comfy bed. There was a mattress cover that was a bit noisy but didn't have any effect on a great night... More

I loved this hotel. The look, the feel, everything. It was simply an 'Express' and I generally associate those as not having the detail of a full scale Holiday Inn. The lobby was spacious with comfortable seating, the breakfast area was large. (The food was mediocre - same as every other Holiday Inn Express menu, but the cinnamon rolls were... More

We have stayed here several times over the past two years. Always pleasant staff. Hotel is very clean. Beds are comfortable and rooms are quiet. Wonderful breakfast. Can't beat the South Dakota friendliness and work ethic.

Loved the nights rest in their cozy beds. Woke to fabulous complimentary breakfast!!! Mmmmmmm........ Down fall is if you are traveling with kids the water slide is only open on weekends and the swimming pool is less than four feet deep, so you can't swim laps.
