Based on other reviews, I knew the Holiday Inn Express would be a great place to stay on a business trip in early September. Once I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to see that this hotel provides excellent (an unexpected amenities) to guests.

As a whole, the hotel and our room was clean and comfortable; which is always important to us. And, the location was great for shopping, it had 3 awesome places to eat (Cracker Barrel, Ruby Tuesdays, and the Outback) right across the street, and if you're up for a late night show, Century Theaters is right across the parking lot....

Overall, this property is decent. The rooms are on the small size especially with 4 people but the location is wonderful, easy to find and easy to get around the city.

Went with my wife and nephews while going to badlands. Free breakfast was good. Very close to several shops and coffee places. Great room with plasma TV. I think it was renovated recently and everything was clean and new. Would definitely stay there again.

Overall, this property was pretty decent. Nothing really wrong with it but I like newer properties with updated amenities which is why I didn't rate this one higher.

This hotel was one of the nicest we have stayed in. It was spotless with current decor. The staff was very friendly and service-oriented (walked us to the elevator).

I had never stayed at a Holiday Inn Express before, but I really enjoyed my three-night stay at this one. I would definitely return/recommend. It was impeccably clean (which is always my number one hotel concern) and the staff was so accommodating one would think they were staying at a 5-star hotel. I love the 24/7 coffee and tea availability.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come stay at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Sioux Falls, a city rich in history and a regional hub for corporate and retail services. The history of Sioux Falls revolves around the cascades of the Big Sioux River. The falls were created approximately 14,000 years ago when the last glacial ice sheet redirected the flow of the Big Sioux River. With our hotel's convenient location, you will find us easily accessible to many attractions such as the Empire Mall, Sertoma Butterfly House and Outdoor Campus, Falls Park, the Washington Pavilion and Wild Water West Amusement Park. We are also conveniently located by many restaurants such as Ruby Tuesday and corporate locations such as banks, hospitals, Joe Foss Field Airport, and the Ivy Room Conference Center. Our hotel offers limited shuttle service to the airport and other corporate locations. While in Sioux Falls, make sure to sit along the banks of the mighty Big Sioux River at Falls Park, our city's namesake. While there you can check out the Horse Barn Art Gallery and Falls Park Tower. Welcome to Sioux Falls, the heart of America! ... more   less
