Hospital stay

My mom was in the hospital in Sioux Falls during this trip. The staff was very nice an even asked us if there was anything more they could do for us and told us they were sorry to hear about my Mom. We have stay at this hotel many time and have never had any problems.

Not thrilled

Pros: Pillows, breakfast and staff
Cons: Get the stink out of the hotel - terrible! Bathroom was really small, hotel looked old and worn out, and beds need upgrades.
Location: Location is in a very good spot, close to all the major stores and restaurants.
I've stayed at a number of Holiday Inn & Expresses but this one was very disappointing. The first thing I noticed was how old and worn everything looked. Carpets looked from the 80's/90's (at best). But what really was unappealing was the stink in the hallways - smelled like rotten eggs and it was throughout the attached building portion. Bathrooms are very small and the bed wasn't that comfortable although the pillows were wonderful. Breakfast was typical of Holiday Inn & Expresses - good. Staff was fine. Overall I will not be returning to this Holiday Inn & Express, too worn down, old and stinky for me.

Peculier

Overall, the hotel was nice and the desk clerk, Nigel, was friendly and pleasant. I did, however, find it a bit odd that as we were checking in, at 9:30 pm, he sent a staff member go up to check if our room was clean before he would check us in.

Too small for price

My family and I stayed here because the other holiday inn express was full. Its so small. The room is a pretty standard room with older furniture in it. The pool is small 4'6" is the deepest it gets. Breakfast is pretty standard. For the price of the stay at this particular Holiday Inn Express..we will be staying at Fairfield by Mariot or the Hilton. At least there we will get what we paid for, and their rooms are pretty closely priced. Won't be staying here again

Nice place sort of a convention place open atrium and glass elevators

It was nice. The swamp cooler never worked although they sent a nice man to fix it. But it was okay, we just opened a window and got cool evening air from outside. The room was nice and the beds comfortable We use those rolling carts to pile on our luggage and cooler, but we had trouble finding one to move in during the evening and move out in the am. The restaurant was understaffed in the morning. I finally left because I could not wait any longer. We had a great $1 sausage and biscuit at McD's with a big slice of tomato from our cooler. We went to the falls in the evening and saw the laser show which was excellent. We ate dinner in this good Chinese place in a small mall that is a local fav. The owner had a MBA and had returned home to help his family with the restaurant.
