“Great value in Sioux Falls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

My wife and I stayed at the Brimark Inn for the weekend of March 7-9th. We selected this property due to the reviews on Tripadvisor. The price was great, $140 total for the two nights, the room was clean and freshly painted, with very comfortable beds. The breakfast was excellent with a good choice, except for no meat. The check in and out was quick and smooth as the staff was friendly and efficient. On the down side, the bathrooms are quite small. I will stay there again, however do not get a room near one of the back entrances due to the noise of people coming and going, unless you plan on getting up before 6 am. I should have asked to be moved, my bad.

Room Tip: Again, stay away from the lower corner rooms near the entry doors due to patrons coming and going, n...

Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. A large percentage of our guests have chosen us because of the reviews on TripAdvisor. I am so sorry about the noise outside your room unfortunately all guests are not considerate of other people. Our rooms are generally very quiet due to the all masonry construction. You never hear people walking overhead or noise next door but as you said rooms by the entrances get a lot of traffic going by. Thank you again for staying with us and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Donna Gratzfeld , General Manager

Stayed at the Brimark Inn on December 15, 2013. Rooms are very nice, clean and well kept.
Staff is very friendly and polite. The breakfast is excellent and the lady serving breakfast was fantastic. Restaurants, Gas Station and interstate are very close by. Had a great stay.
Will certainly stay again on the way by.

I was recently stranded in Sioux Falls while traveling through town and was referred to the Brimark Inn as a being a great place to say. That was 100% true. My room was clean and reasonably priced. The general manager and staff were SUPER FRIENDLY and accomodating. The breakfast had a lot of variety and was very good. This is the best hotel experience I've had in the last 10 years. In the future, I would definitely choose to stay at the Brimark Inn any time I was in Sioux Falls.

Decently priced, clean rooms and friendly staff . I would stay there again. No indoor pool but has a fitness room. A little difficult to get to but there was road construction out front at the time....

Clean, looks newly renovated, easy to find, above average breakfast selection to boot! Would stay again! Very quiet with great heating and plenty of water pressure to accompany the hot water. Wi-Fi was very good to!

My flight was cancelled, the staff was so accommodating and understanding that I ended up staying until my flight rescheduled 2 days later.The staff was so thoughtful. I highly recommend this establishment.
