Sioux Falls, SD
Reviewed 5 November 2016

We went in the off season so we got parking right outside the hotel. While I wish there was an elevator for carrying up luggage, the hotel was very modern. The room was cozy and we had our own bathroom, but other rooms would've had to share. I wish they had taken out the window air conditioner though. They had...

We stayed for three nights in September 2016 at the Bird Rock. Our first room was a basement suite. But big, well-appointed and with a small outside space. We then extended the stay and all they had remaining was a very small upstairs room. Not as good of a deal. But it had access to a very nice and sunny...

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights - lovely B&B! We were upgraded to a king room on the ground floor and I would highly recommend any place on the ground floor, as opposed to the rooms on the higher levels (some of which have shared bathrooms). Staff were wonderfully helpful. Free bike rental meant we could cycle...

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Cozy entry way that serves as the eating area for breakfast. There are also cookies available in the afternoon. Rooms were comfortable and the location is right in town. The only issue we had was noise from the delivery trucks in the early morning. Good choice, nice stay

We stayed here for two nights in September. The hotel was just a few blocks from the ferry terminal and a quick walk. The room was very comfortable and well appointed.

First time on the island and this was a wonderful place to stay, one block from the Harbor and close to everything. Room wasn't big but it was perfect. Loved the cuddly robes and fine soft linens, super comfortable european-style sleeping rooms. I really enjoyed the healthy breakfast items, my favorite the fresh scones. They also provide retro-cruiser bicycles. Awesome...
