This hotel is clean, neat and seems to be well managed. Most of the fixtures and furnishings are relatively new. Breakfast was fine, if not particularly memorable. The location is near the intersection of the Interstate (I-29) and a major arterial, but off the street, so finding your way to the driveway can be a little tricky; fortunately, there is a good-sized sign and it is relatively well lit. The only downside in my mind is that the neighborhood is mostly strip malls and other ugly commercial buildings. There is not much in the area other than discount stores, a few chain restaurants and car dealerships. It was fine for a trip passing through as I was doing, but it wouldn't be a destination spot, I don't think. The staff seem very eager to please. less

Dear Mark O,
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We appreciate knowing what our guests like and dislike about their stay. I'm glad you like our building and services, if not our view! Those of us from Sioux Falls do like the chain restaurants. We think we've finally made the big leagues whenever we get a store or restaurant that's nationally known. But there is a small group of restaurateurs that are starting up. I hope the next time you past through we can direct you to one to try out.
