Great one day trip to Sioux Falls

We have stayed at the Empire Towers many times over the past 10 years. It has always been a wonderful experience. Waffles for breakfast are great. While checking-in I left my car keys on the counter. Later in the evening we were leaving the hotel for dinner. The person who checked us in stopped me and asked if I had left my keys. That was a big help. It would have been a real mess the next morning with missing keys.

Just right

Was attending a 3 day seminar where meals and activities were included. So I was looking for a good, clean, comfortable stay. This fit the bill perfectly. Rooms were very comfortable, very clean, the free breakfast was quick and easy.

Great stay

Enjoyed our one-night stay during a whirlwind road trip to Rapid City. Clean, comfortable room, friendly staff, and affordable rates.

Okay

We stayed here on two separate non-consecutive days with first four- then two people. They had a decent breakfast on Sunday but the pool was sub-par without a hot tub. The rooms were fine. The location was pretty good near lots of food and shopping.

Great experience

Great experience at a reasonable cost. The continental breakfast was as good as any we have experienced. And when we wanted to take a plate to the room for our jet-lagged (and still sleeping) daughter, no problem. The hostess was more than gracious when we asked her if it would be alright.

Perfect stay at Sioux Falls

Very comfortable stay with all amenities. It is surrounded by some of the best restaurants. In close proximity to downtown and Sioux Falls which is the key attraction of the city. Its really worth the price we paid with some great breakfast included.

Great time in Sioux Falls

My family and I were extremely pleased with this Best Western stay. The hotel smells clean right when you walk in and the staff was very accommodating. Breakfast was wonderful. You had your choice of cheese omelet, waffles, sausage, biscuits & gravy and all the regular items you normally see. We stayed for 3 nights and did not have one complaint. This hotel is located one street behind 41st street which is an extremely busy road. It was nice because it didn't have the hustle & bustle of hotels on 41st. It was perfect for us because it was somewhat quiet but close to everything.
