In a really nice, great area right off the interstate. Plenty of restaurant options to choose from nearby, as well as other stores if needed. Clean, quiet, friendly service, good breakfast with more options than we needed, nice pool for the kiddos. Would definitely go back.

Although this hotel is a few miles south of I-90 it is close to I-29. We stayed in the newer south wing and we slept great.

We just stayed 1 night on the way home from a trip. We wound our way from the lobby to a second building.

We had driven across South Dakota from Deadwood to Sioux Falls so we needed a rest. This is a very nice, clean, quiet hotel. Staff is very helpful. Several good restaurants in walking distance (a block or two). Very good breakfast choices. The best of Holiday Inn Express - just what you would expect.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come stay at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Sioux Falls, a city rich in history and a regional hub for corporate and retail services. The history of Sioux Falls revolves around the cascades of the Big Sioux River. The falls were created approximately 14,000 years ago when the last glacial ice sheet redirected the flow of the Big Sioux River. With our hotel's convenient location, you will find us easily accessible to many attractions such as the Empire Mall, Sertoma Butterfly House and Outdoor Campus, Falls Park, the Washington Pavilion and Wild Water West Amusement Park. We are also conveniently located by many restaurants such as Ruby Tuesday and corporate locations such as banks, hospitals, Joe Foss Field Airport, and the Ivy Room Conference Center. Our hotel offers limited shuttle service to the airport and other corporate locations. While in Sioux Falls, make sure to sit along the banks of the mighty Big Sioux River at Falls Park, our city's namesake. While there you can check out the Horse Barn Art Gallery and Falls Park Tower. Welcome to Sioux Falls, the heart of America! ... more   less
