Recent guest reviews

Every time I come to Sioux Falls this is my "home away from home". The rooms are spacious and quiet. The breakfast is very good, as are the evening get-togethers. Thanks to Tammy and Khristy for their attentive care in the food department!! The entire staff here is phenomenal!! Payton is very helpful when I have checked in later in the day. Always so friendly! Victoria is super accommodating and will bend over backwards. The first face I ever saw here was Denice. She is such a sweetheart! I had some car trouble and she set me up with her brother who works in an automotive service center. This is what I call over and above!!! Every staff member is wonderful! Becky, Katy....all of them!! I hope I didn't miss anybody. It is the staff that we come back here or. They make you feel like a part of the family!!

I always stay at this property when I am in Sioux Falls, the young man at the front desk is always so professional and helpful. the rooms are HUGE! they even have an evening mixxer with food and drinks some nights. Highly Recommended

This place was wonderful. The young man at the desk was the start of a good experience. Very clean, spacious, and good breakfast. Close to many restaurants and very quiet. It seemed pretty new to the area.

Hotel seemed to be in pretty good shape. Bed was comfortable and room was clean. Only minor thing was the carafe was obviously a replacement to the inexpensive coffee maker and was not easy to use so to its mismatch. Breakfast was as expected but the crowd drained most things and was not readily being refilled. Again, very minor. I would come back here.

This hotel provides some great amenities such as the ability to have groceries delivered to your room. They provide food service in the front lobby which accommodates the price of your stay. Staff was pleasant.

We were quite pleased with this Residence Inn. Not only was the room quiet and comfortable, but the coffee at breakfast was pretty good. It is rare to find a good cup of coffee at overnight accommodations. It seems each place we stayed during our long road trip the staff was more than friendly. The staff at this Residence Inn was no exception.

I can't say enough good things about this hotel! Great front desk personnel, always ready with a smile and a greeting! Room has plenty of space for relaxing, cooking, and dining. Separate bedroom area with attached bath area, large closet. Very clean. Even though I did not require it housekeeping came by every morning and checked. Breakfast area was large and kept very clean. Always plenty of fresh food present no matter if it was close to the end of breakfast hours. This will definitely be my hotel of choice when visiting in Sioux Falls!!

The breakfast is amazing, but not just for the variety of foods served (which include cereals, muffins, donuts, bagels, waffles with a variety toppings, fresh fruit, cheese, hard boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, sausages, tortillas, salsa, spinach, shredded cheese, greek yogurts, granolas, juices and milks) but also for the service Tammie provides during breakfast. Tammie is hard working--always bustling back and forth from the kitchen with fresh whatever-ran-out, and even finding more powdered sugar donuts for us when we asked specifically for them. She is also so kind, taking a moment to get my son a bandaid when I was helping my other children get their breakfast plates. Tammie also runs the evening social, during which small snacks and drinks are served. It was nice to take a moment to chat with her when we got a chance. Thanks Tammie for your hard work! And not to slight the front desk: Victoria was very kind and helpful and always had a friendly word for myself and the children. We like you too, Victoria!

This property is average for this brand but we were bothered by (a) a large stain/discoloration on the sofa, (b) unpleasant stains in carpeting in the room, and (c) the guest laundry room that seemed that it had not been cleaned in a while. Front desk people were pleasant and polite and apologized for the above. Otherwise, the room was comfortable (as we double checked where we sat or stepped). At this price point, I expect better.

Our room was very nice. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. Payton Behrend, our wonderful guest service agent, was particularly helpful. There was a large school group staying in the hotel and they kindly placed us in a location where, if the students were a little noisy, we never knew it. We travel to Sioux Falls several times each year and we will definitely stay here on our next visit!
