    « recommended »

    I stayed three nights in the BW Empire Towers hotel. It is a nice looking building, the room was spacious and clean; the "no pets allowed" policy for part of the hotel is supported by signs on the door of rooms on the third floor. The only negative point was the taste of the scrambled and fried eggs (breakfast items). Also, I could not appreciate the large potholes in the road leading to the parking lot of the hotel (although that is outside the hotel property). The front desk staff is friendly and effective. If it would have been possible, I would have rated this hotel 4.5 out of 5.

    We have stayed at several Best Western Hotels and have never had anything to say negatively about any of them. The Best Western Hotels are our preference when it comes to having to pick a hotel to stay at.

    « Will not be staying here again and do not recommend! »

    My family and I booked three rooms for Friday May 4th through Sunday May 6th, as my sister was searching for her wedding dress. Every room had issues. The room my sister, daughter, and I stayed in reaked of men's cologne and cigarette smoke. There were burn marks on the carpet and something brown was splattered underneath the sink all over. We complained about the smell of smoke, especially since I am 34 weeks pregnant and my daughter is 4. They were booked on Friday night so they couldn't switch us rooms but instead sprayed a deodorizer all over the room (which once again just masked the smell momentarily). On Saturday after complaining again because at that point, the cologne and deodorizer wore off (not to mention our pillows all reaked of smoke), they were able to switch us rooms. I will say, the new room was on the second floor and was very clean and didn't smell; it was almost as if we were in a different hotel. In my Mom and Aunt's room the bathroom tub/shower would not drain, the card reader would only work intermittently (had to have keys remade numerous times), and it smelled very musty/was dirty. In my Grandma's room, a light was burnt out and her TV consistently had issues/wouldn't work. Also, on Saturday we went to go swimming (we had no issues swimming Friday evening) and went into the pool area only to find that the pool had completely flooded out into the walking area. We reported it to the front desk and their response was that maintenance must have forgotten to turn something off. For the price we paid to stay here for two nights and for three rooms, the issues we encountered were and are unacceptable. I read reviews on here before booking this hotel and was extremely dissatisfied with what we encountered.

    Very pleased with our stay! Great staff, breakfast was good. This was our second time at this hotel and we'll stay again! Close to the mall and many restaurants. Convenient for us while visiting family in South Dakota.

    « Snowed in Tight »

    Snowed in allowed us to talk to other guests and BW personnel. I really appreciated that BW thought enough of their employees to tell them to stay home on Saturday. The motel explained this to all the guests. Also, I was amazed that the Frying Pan was open right next to the motel. Good stay for a blizzard.

    « SD Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Weekend »

    Staff was fantastic!! Rooms were very nice & clean, and staff went out of their way to make our stay a great one! With 20 in our group - they allowed us to use the breakfast area at night to visit so as not to wake their guests next to our rooms. Location just 2 blocks from the mall & easy to get to. Was a fantastic time even with the blizzard that was happening.

    Our room was quiet, comfortable and very clean. The front desk was polite, efficient and very polite. We arrived very late and check in was fast and efficient as was check out the next morning. The staff here are very helpful from the cleaning staff, front desk and breakfast room. What we have learned to expect from Best western.

    This facility is just off of I-29. we checked in fairly late and the front desk is excellent. The room we booked was quiet, very clean and comfortable. Internet was good, bed very comfortable, and bathroom very good. Breakfast was also excellent as was pre-checkout.We will be back.

    « Clean, clean, oh, so clean! »

    We stayed here March 15 - 17 for the state basketball tournament. Check is was quick and easy. The lobby of the hotel was noticeably neat as well. Our room was inviting, and the bed so comfortable. I have never stayed in a hotel this clean. The bathroom was absolutely spotless! The rest of the room was fantastic. The continental breakfast was good -- waffles, cereals, other hot and cold foods -- and the breakfast room was clean. The attendant did a fantastic job! We will stay here again. Great accommodations for an even greater rate!

    Older hotel that is well maintained and clean. I was pleasantly surprised with the breakfast. I have special dietary needs, and it was nice they had low fat hot protein options on the buffet. The front desk service was great too.

    « Nice play to stay! »

    My daughter and I had to visit Sioux Falls for a dance competition and we chose BW for our stay and were well pleased. The room was very clean, the beds firm, and the hotel staff were always courteous with us. My daughter really enjoyed breakfast each morning, and we always left satisfied. Hotel is located near most everything in town with the large mall across the street. The pool is slightly smaller than others we have visited, but it worked for the kids in our group. We will definitely return again!

    « No surprises! »

    A chain hotel with no surprises and is in a great location close to the highway, shopping mall and restaurants. Booked a two-bed room for two nights, but I didn't sleep well. The air conditioner was on and off with a dripping sound and the hallway and upstairs were very noisy. I would try a different hotel next time as there are many choices in the area.

    « Very good place to stay »

    I have stayed here before but this time it was because of a pending blizzard. This time, as in the past, I found the staff very friendly and always helpful. The breakfast is very good with many choices of cereal, bread, juice and waffles. The room was very clean and the internet signal was very good. The hotel is located just off of I-29 and very easy to get to. There is a big mall close by too.

    We really enjoyed our time at this hotel. Easy check-in/out process. Nice selections of breakfast items. Pool was warm and pool area was clean. Shower had plenty of pressure and hot water. TV could have been bigger.

    « Very nice staff »

    Clean--quiet---decently decorated and furnished. Breakfast was just fine. Parking lot well lit. Good value. Many people would find this hotel very conveniently located---close to mall, many fine eating places, movie theatre, etc---I did not like being backed right up to some very cut rate hotels. Our room was a smoke free room but I thought it smelled a bit smoky.

    « Attractive hotel but Kitchenette rooms have no crockery, cutlery etc., »

    Young lady on Reception was efficient and pleasant. The hotel was attractively decorated and spotless. Car parking easy and free. An elevator. We only had a one night stay after a long drive and had chosen a Kitchenette Suite because of this. The Kitchenette area was excellent and attractive but no crockery, cutlery, glasses. Counter-intuitive. When I asked the young lady might we be able to get a kitchen pack I politely received the answer I expected. I could help myself to disposable items out in the Breakfast Room. Foam cups, plastic cutlery, paper plates. I was then and am now trying to make a point to Hoteliers. If the accommodation has a Kitchenette can a minimum of basic kitchenalia be supplied please or even advised as available if wanted. I get guests can be lazy slobs - we are not - but can some thought be put into this issue. Amusingly, or not, whilst a kitchen sink in the Kitchenette the bathroom sink was also helpfully, or not, placed outside the bathroom. I loathe hotel rooms with a bathroom sans sink - daft - but a first that we had a kitchen sink and a living room sink. As the two sinks were mere feet away from each other it was a good example of an architect or whoever designs hotel room fitouts, not thinking. At all. The Breakfast Room was efficient and offered a good basic breakfast.

    « Great Place to Stay »

    This was a great property to stay at. The staff was super caring and the entire property clean and well kept. I will stay here again if I am in the Sioux Falls area. Best Western is always a fantastic place to stay no matter where you are. Do yourself a favor and stay here.

    « Met my high standards for cleanliness, location, price »

    Extremly clean room, nicely updated room/halls/stairs and breakfast area. Bed and linens comfy. We do have a few comments that affect the overall rating from being a 5. The coffee served in breakfast area was terrible. It comes out of an automatic Nescafe machine so we think it's not brewed coffee. Very disatisfying. Also we liked to use the stairwell and accessed the side of building doorway near our car. Door is unlocked all day -sign says it's locked at 11pm daily. We found it unlocked at 11:15 pm Saturday eve as we entered from our evening out. That is a security issue. The biggest issue was with a staff person upon our arrival. I will give name of that staff in the BW site for management. The front desk staff gal was sitting in a chair furthest from desk, near a window when we walked to desk to checkin. We greeted her first. She was not warm, friendly or welcoming. She was absorbed on her device. She did offer & explain details of breakfast times and the usual check in info. We had a voucher for 1 free night stay that I gave to her. She accepted it but said that someone else needed to enter it later so that our account may show both our nights being charged. I didn't think much of it. The morning of our departure our receipt that was emailed showed both nights charged. As we checked out I asked FD about our free night. An extremly happy, friendly, helpful front desk gal (who normally works laundry/housekeeping) said that the free night should have been credited upon arrival by that FD staff. This gal worked diligent to correct our bill even though it consumed a bit of time as she doesn't normally work that job but she was very apolgetic trying to get processing faster.

    « Worst service ever received at a hotel »

    Terrible customer service, very rude, had to wait a very long time for an extra towel, staff dressed sloppy, waaaay too much chlorine or bleach in the pool-damaged my kids eyes, would not go back or recommend to anyone

    « Very Nice, but spotty internet »

    Internet didn't work on check-in, but was reset by the front desk. Unfortunately, it failed again the next morning. Overall, good staff and as good a hotel as much more expensive offerings in the area and the location was very convenient.

    « Trip south »

    As we were on a long trip south and this was our first nights stop it was convent to find and the rate was reaonable. There is a charge for pets of $20 which was a bit much, but as I had a $20 coupon from my previous stays it balanced out.

    « Very pleased »

    The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Very pleased for the price paid.. We come back to Sioux Falls usually only once a year, but it will now be the motel we will stay at in the future. The staff was very accommodating when I accidentally left my briefcase in the lobby. The breakfast had everything you would need and want for a continental breakfast. When it was time to head home, I was wishing I could stay one more night to rest up after a busy 2 day craft show. Couldn't this time, but will plan for that in the future.

    « Nice people, comfortable unit, reasonable price »

    We have stayed at this location multiple times over the past several years. It is always clean and comfortable. Staff is generally pleasant and helpful. Parking can get a little tight when it is really busy. We don't often have the breakfast, but the few times we have it was ok....like most motels, nothing to get excited about. (I recommend the Fry'n Pan a few doors down) The price is reasonable for the location. Good Place overall.

    « Nice place to stay »

    We enjoyed our stay here even though we had a mishap with the rooms. Not sure what happened, but when we went to the room we were supposed to stay in, someone else was already in it. They also handed me a bill that had someone else's name on it. They put is in another room, and in the morning, someone tried to come in our room since they thought it was supposed to be empty. But overall, it was a nice place to stay. The breakfast was good and the beds were comfy.

    « Satisfied in Sioux Falls »

    This is a great option if you need a good night's sleep. We had asked for a quiet room away from the elevator and noises. Our room (#313) was near the elevator but we didn't hear a thing. The room was also nicely furnished and pleasant to be in. The breakfast was the standard awful American unhealthy breakfast with bad coffee. Other than that, all good.

    « Worth the stay »

    Was traveling to Montana. We stayed at this Best Western on the way there and on the way home. Both times were for one night. We were pleased with our stay. No problems at all. My husband had a toothache and the lady at the front desk was very helpful with providing some Tylenol to ease his pain. We were very thankful we didn't need to run out to a store. Breakfast was fine. Just a couple of things about that was I didn't like how dining area was kind of small and counter space for the layout of the food made it difficult for more than one to get their breakfast. However, wasn't big enough issue to keep me from staying there again.

    « average »

    The bathtub was very slippery and I was nervous about falling while taking a shower. The shower head was so tall, I couldn't adjust it for my height. The bath towels are so small to use. The air conditioner was either too cold or not cool at all. Not enough electric outlets on the desk or the vanity area. Weren't offered the rewards program and when we checked out and I called about receiving the reward points, was told they couldn't help me or give me any points. Won't stay there again. The continental breakfast could last until 10am on weekends but they stop at 9:30am. We like to sleep in a bit on our weekend trips. Temperature of the continental breakfast area was terribly hot.

    Very nice stay at a clean and comfortable room in a quiet hotel and the price was right. Plenty of places to eat close by. Listen to your GPS as it's not easy find. I was traveling on the I-80 and this was about 6 miles South of I-80 but just off of I-29 if your traveling North/South. Not that big a deal though.

    « Great Location, Shopping Nearby »

    Friendly helpful staff, large clean room and bed. Would stay here if visiting again. Good night's sleep. If going to see the beautiful Falls Park with an over-look tower (has elevator, rest rooms and the nicest info staff), make sure that your route includes Phillips Ave. If your GPS tells you to turn left onto Minnesota Ave., don't. Rather continue one or two more blocks and turn onto Phillips Ave. It will take you through a residential area first, and into Downtown before you reach the park. Along the Downtown area sidewalks are the Annual Sculpture Walk sculptures that remain for your pleasure from the July Festival to April. Drive by or park and enjoy up close. Fabulous plan bringing art into every day. Changed annually!

    We arrived at about 1 a.m. but were met with a friendly smile and a person that was genuinely excited about looking after us as a guest. They were more than helpful to let us know all the amenities, and quickly processed us to get us to our very reasonably priced rooms that were excellent quality. Great beds, plenty of pillows, and a quiet nights sleep. The breakfast buffet had every kind of staple food option in the breakfast category with fresh juices as well. There were multiple staff constantly fussing with making sure all the food was freshly brought out and topped up, and full of smiles and made us feel welcome. This is a must stop choice if you are passing through.

    « Easy to get to, glad we did. »

    This is a nice hotel, welcoming staff, clean, lots of towels and comfy bed. We have stayed at many BW hotels and had better breakfasts at a few of them. This was adequate, well attended but with less hot choices than some other hotel breakfasts....we have become experts on this drive from Alaska. It was an easy to get to hotel, clean and comfortable. We especially liked the outside faucet and hose set-up to do our windshield fresh to start the day.

    We stayed here on a road trip across country, looking for clean places with good reviews and decent prices. This is a great hotel! We were greeted by Frank....I don't know if he's a worker or manager, but he was very welcoming and very helpful. Our room was ready early which was nice. Luggage racks were available to help us get out things up to the room. Our room was very nice....large, clean and comfortable. Frank helped us with directions downtown and other suggestions. Upon returning from our outing, fresh cookies and coffee were available. In the morning, the breakfast was very tasty and nicely presented. I would totally stay here again if I were to make it to Sioux Falls again!

    We stayed in a king room. It was spacious. The vanity was outside the bathroom. This is nice for two people to get ready in the morning. It was a very quiet room. We were tucked away in the back maybe - first floor. The breakfast was standard for hotels that serve the free breakfast. The man at the front desk was friendly and efficient. Close to the mall, if you wish to shop. And, the price for a Sunday night on Labor Day weekend was very good. The beds were decent. And, the air conditioning worked. It definitely would cool to the temperature you set. For the price and a quiet, spacious room we would return.

    « Pleasant Surprise »

    We generally stay in the Best Western Plus hotels, but there were none in this area so we decided to give the Empire Towers a try. While the hotel is very small it is also very nice. The lobby staff are very friendly and offer to answer questions about the area. Our room had a queen, very comfortable bed, desk, chair, microwave and refrigerator. The carpet was clean and so was the room and bathroom. If we pass this way again, we would certainly consider staying in this hotel one more time.

    Right off the highway for easy on/off. Large room with comfy bed and great pillows. Clean, QUIET, quick check in, PET FRIENDLY! We recharged our batteries with a good night sleep. Walking distance to many restaurants. The entrance in is a little tricky, just pay attention to the sign, it sits back off the main road (which means it's more quiet there). Hearty breakfast and we were on our way the next day.

    The Best Western is one of my favorites. The Hotel is Clean all the amenities I look for. Orderless, the beds were comfortable pillows were the best. The air conditioning was good to so good we had to turn it OFF. It served its purpose as I expected it to. The breakfast are is a little smaller than most of the hotels I visited but the food was good had a microwave just in case you wanted to warm up something. We had a whole floor to accommodate all of us which was good. We love to shop but we love the THRIFT STORE which was walking distant right across the back lot amazing it had our name on it "CHARGE". Overall when I go back this is where I would stay again. Pool was small but it was ok we had an hour on Saturday nite. Over all a good stay. Staff was helpful and polite.

    We were only here for one night as we were using this hotel as a waypoint on our trip to Colorado. The hotel is located near the highway and has free parking, indoor swimming pool and a gym. It has a full hot breakfast which is included in the room rate. It has a breakfast place right across the parking lot next to the hotel (forgot the name, sorry) if you want more variety for breakfast or woke up to late for the free breakfast. The rooms are good sized, nice bathroom, comfortable beds and nice rooms. I would use this hotel for a business trip or for a layover but not necessarily for a vacation or extended stay. It is not walking distance to anything other than the one breakfast-dinner place that I can't remember the name, it is a popular chain but more in this neck of the woods (not a Denny's or IHop)..

    Stayed on July 8th. In town for Hot Harley Nights. I would highly suggest to management that you capitalize on your relationship with Harley Davidson! We did not know that BW had a deal with HD until after we checked in and settled into our room and I was browsing the corporate website. Since the desk didn't notice that we were bikers, we didn't get the things like the two bottles of water upon check in that being a HD-BW rewards member offers. Room was clean. We all remarked that the pillows were very comfortable. Room rate was 135.99 which was okay for the property, probably due to high demand. Would pay less otherwise.

    We got off the interstate looking for a place to stay and also wanted to visit Sioux Falls Park. (We were heading west on vacation.) We saw the Best Western but wanted to see if there was anything closer to the park. After spending over 2 hours at the park, we decided to go back to the Best Western we saw earlier. At first we were unsure on how to get there with the way the road is and the construction. Otherwise the location is great with restaurants, close to the interstate and a mall across the road.

    As we traveled over 9,300 km during the month of June on our motor cycle, we relied on Best Western any chance we got. This particular BW. had an added a bonus, being beside a shopping mall. The hotel chain set standards, which are appreciated. Being on a bike, there are always concerned during the night, with the bike and parking. They arranged it so the bike was visible and easy to watch. The room was appointed well, loving the sink and mirror outside the actual bath area. We had a third floor room which was quiet and restful. Breakfast is always a treat, being right there in the hotel, and part of the reservation. The variety is appealing to both adults and little ones. There is a pool, but our day was full without it. We high recommend this hotel if you are in the vicinity.

    We stayed at the Best Western Empire Towers for one evening while in town to attend a family member's wedding. We arrived before the 3PM check-in time, to which the front desk clerk had no trouble with - she assisted us right away and we were in our room no more than 5 minutes after arriving. We had a small dog with us, who was welcome for an additional $20 overnight (an extremely reasonable price!), and the front desk clerk even took a little polaroid photo and put it on a board in the lobby with the other dogs in house, which we loved! Our room was all you can ask for at a 3-star hotel - very clean, well-kept, stocked with amenities, extremely comfortable beds. We don't have a single complaint about the room! The location of the hotel "is what it is" - this was our first time to Sioux Falls, so I would call this area of town the "shopping district". Certainly no nice views nearby, but that's hardly the hotel's fault! If anything, I would credit the hotel for making us feel at home and comfortable in an area that is otherwise a bit more industrial. Thank you to your entire team for a great stay!

    This hotel was a quick overnight stay at a "way station" during a long car ride. Our experience really could not have been better. Do not let the kind of odd location throw you off. This is a clean, well-appointed, well-run hotel. The decorating in both the common areas and in our room itself are tastefully done. Such that we could see, everything was spotless. Our room was comfortable, very clean, with a nice bathroom. (The toilet and shower are separate from the sink area. The complimentary breakfast was perfectly fine; nice assortment of items, replenished, and kept clean. Friendly staff with very helpful attitudes. We did not have occasion to utilize the pool or the business center. They looked very plain, but also appeared clean. I can't really imagine a better value for the price we paid.

    The motel itself was OK. Walking distance to many restaurants. Pleasant staff. Clean rooms. However, this seems to be a fairly sketchy area as when we were walking back from the restaurant, we saw an empty pocket bottle of Windsor in the driveway that wasn't there when we left and many other items that were alarming. Then, once night fell, the yelling and screaming from drunk people in lot along with car alarms was more than I could take. To top it off, breakfast was less than wowing, with cold food and little variety.

    This hotel is clean, neat and seems to be well managed. Most of the fixtures and furnishings are relatively new. Breakfast was fine, if not particularly memorable. The location is near the intersection of the Interstate (I-29) and a major arterial, but off the street, so finding your way to the driveway can be a little tricky; fortunately, there is a good-sized sign and it is relatively well lit. The only downside in my mind is that the neighborhood is mostly strip malls and other ugly commercial buildings. There is not much in the area other than discount stores, a few chain restaurants and car dealerships. It was fine for a trip passing through as I was doing, but it wouldn't be a destination spot, I don't think. The staff seem very eager to please.

    It's nice getting off the road and into a comfortable bed and clean sheets that actually smell clean and fresh. That is my lasting impression os the BW Empire Towers. The staff was pleasant and helpful, the WiFi was reliable and had a good signal and the breakfast had a good variety of hot and cold food, including fresh fruit. The heating/air conditioning unit was a bit loud and the mini fridge had a wet shelf and ice build up in the freezer, but the staff member at the front desk said he'd have the maintenance staff look into those issues and have them resolved that day...which I considered another indication of the staff's efficiency. The motel is conveniently located near a highway exit and on one of Sioux Falls' main shopping thoroughfares.

    We have stayed at this hotel several times while visiting Sioux Falls. We like this hotel because it is clean and allows pets with a reasonable fee. This hotel is a great value compared to the other mid range priced hotels in the area. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful. The rooms area large and very clean. Sometimes with a pet you get a room that smells and looks like a pet room, but not at this hotel. The hotel offers the standard hotel breakfast, and is served in a clean well maintained area.

    The good - the room was clean and bed was comfortable, so that's important. The breakfast was not outstanding, but satisfactory. The bad - NO soundproofing in the room....Very annoying to be awakened at 5:30 AM by the shower running in the next room. Loud enough I thought someone was in MY room. It sounds like the building is a wood frame, because it sounded like the people upstairs were walking on bare wood floors. A motorcycle outside in the parking lot sounded like the window was open. The annoying - NO convenient place to plug in my phone as alarm. the only outlet near the night stand had both plugs used. The desk chair is very low. There is no way anyone could actually work at the desk. It was 2" shorter than the toilet seat! The tv was not set up, so I had to call the front desk and it still took a while to set it up.

    We stayed here for 1 night - my two parents in the 70's in one room and myself and my 4.5 year old daughter in a second room. I had spoken to the front desk the week before while I was in Sioux Falls after landing from Australia - I stopped to make sure that the hotel had a suitable chair for my mom to sleep in because she has severe back issues that require her to sleep semi-upright in a chair. After speaking to the very lovely man (originally from Boston) and one of the other lovely staff, I viewed a couple of rooms and was assured and comfortable that we would have a chair for my mom when we arrived the following week. However, a week later, we arrived and upon check in, a very very rude young girl was working who said we were lying, had never been told my mother could be guaranteed a chair or the room that we requested etc. She told us we had no reservation and it went on and on. I asked to speak to the manager, and the young girl working said that the manager was not available. Eventually after a very heated discussion we were able to get the manager on the phone so that my mom would have the room I had been guaranteed the previous week. The manager did eventually come and sorted things out, but this was a major stress that never should have happened. People like this young girl should not be left to cover the front desk when clearly they have no customer service skills. I would never stay at this hotel again and it was the worst experience I've had anywhere in the world, and I travel a lot. So disappointing to have this happen in friendly Sioux Falls. Anyway aside from that, the hotel was clean and comfortable, but one bad apple spoils the whole bunch for me... A month later and I'm still disappointed by what happened...

    I came in here dead tired and they were friendly and quick to get me checked in and on my way. Quiet room and clean too. The price was pretty good considering the local events that were going on at the time.

    « Extra mile »

    We advised the clerk at check in that we had our grandson along with on our trip. When the reservations were made we only booked a king because we didn't know he was going to be with us. I asked for the price of a cot and she offered a two queen-bed room instead, saving us that cost. We appreciated the extra effort to make our stay more comfortable. And our three year old grandson was excited with "mine own big bed!"

    We stayed here on the way to the Black Hills. We needed a place to eat and rest up for another day of travel. The room was quiet and very clean. It was attractively decorated and large enough for 3 people. There was a great selection of restaurants within easy walking distance and The breakfast was great with eggs, sausages, biscuits, gravy, waffles, etc. The breakfast area even had a milk dispenser.

    « Great stay in a clean hotel! »

    We've always loved staying at Best Western So when we had to make a quick to Sioux Falls we decided on Empire Towers. We were not disappointed. The rooms were very clean and spacious. The staff was friendly and great to work with. Our kids loved the pool! The breakfast was also good, with the usual cereals, hot breakfast, etc. We were overall very pleased with our stay!

I want to mention a few who have done things for me. They are:Amanda, who has done a lot with the help here and always pleasant. Frank at front desk has helped me with several things.Jo makes a good breakfast and make sure food is plentiful.Dusty who is head of Housekeepingdoes a great job and Gail who is a housekeeper does a very good job. Great place to stay.Also front desk Ronnie.

    Enjoyed our stay. Beds were a little less comfortable than other Best Westerns. Looked like it had recently been remodeled. Best feature was the elevator. The other BW we stayed at did not have an elevator. Kids enjoyed the pool. We would definitely stay here again.

    « Dont check in after midnight »

    The front desk staff working the graveyard shift was so rude it made my whole experience suck. I had been driving all day and was tired and just wanted to get checked in and go to bed. The guy at the desk was rude and argumentative. Make sure you get there early so hopefully you dont have to deal with that process.

    « Nice Place »

    This was a nice, clean place to stay. They had a microwave and mini fridge in the room. They also had a complimentary continental breakfast. The beds were comfortable. There was a sketchy looking little motel across the parking lot (not anything Best Western can do about that). They are located far back from the main road and a little hard to see.

    Thanks, and praise for JO in the breakfast room, who goes out of her way to make sure everything is perfect and guests get what they want. Over-all desk staff as well as maintenance/cleaning staff are efficient and friendly, rooms are very clean and basic. Beds are good. Pillows a little too soft. No extra blankets or pillows provided, though staff would probably jump to provide these if asked.

    « Everything fine. »

    Haven't been to a Best Western for a while but might be staying more often after this stay. Everything was good. There was one bulb missing (not burned out) on the desk light but the remaining light was more than adequate for my use. I did mention it at check out so it could be fixed for the next customer and the attendants (two of them) said they would have replaced it for me if I had asked the night before. I'm sure they would have but it wasn't necessary. (July 11-12, 2016)

    « Last room in town »

    Stopped here on way home from the Black Hills. Booked online as we were driving because it was the only hotel to come up on Tripadvisor as available. Upon arriving, desk clerk told us we got the last room they had due to a cancellation. Apparently an air show and a big concert caused all hotels to sell out that weekend. We were thankful for the room, although it was dirty upon arrival and has clearly not been vaccumed. The room for 4 guests only had 2 wash clothes and no shampoo. The air conditioner leaked overnight and the floor by the window was soaked. Breakfast was nice, but the tiny room was not adequate size for guests, with only a few tables to sit at. I would pick a another hotel before staying here again, unless it was again the only one available in this class. The price I paid was not a good value.

    « Restful Hotel »

    We stayed at Best Western Empire Towers on our way back to Iowa. The hotel is very neat and clean, quiet and luxurious according to our standards. The refrigerator was just the right size, the in-room coffee was much appreciated and the air conditioning system ran quietly as needed. The pillows were very comfortable.

    « Clean and Comfortable »

    The fresh baked cookies at check in were a nice touch. Clean and well decorated room, AC was on and room comfortable from the get go. Nice breakfast but the bacon and omelets needed to be replenished. Gravy for the biscuits should also be preheated before being put out for consumption. Maybe I am critical due to the fantastic breakfast at the Americinn in Aberdeen the night before.

    « Newer hotel but hard to fine »

    We had an awful time finding this hotel. We didn't have the specific address readily available while driving but knew it was near the mall. We drove by it twice before we saw it. It sits behind the Super 8 with limited signage along the main road. Once we arrived the hotel is clean and comfortable.

    « Clean rooms friendly staff, great location »

    The front desk manager was very friendly and brought a plate of fresh made cookies for us and the other guest that were arriving. The room was quite clean and well appointed. The breakfast room was very clean and the food was fresh, hot, & plentiful. The location was good, the Mall was across the street, and plenty of dining opportunities were available up & down 41st St. You are only a few minutes away from Downtown & Fall Park.

    « Weekend »

    We booked 2 rooms close together.1 room with 1 queen and 1 room with 2 queens. When we got here said they couldn't find a room with 1 queen so they upgraded it to a room with a king right next to our other room. Everything has been wonderful and will stay here again.

    « Just OK »

    Stayed here for 2 nights and wasn't overly impressed. It's an average hotel. Location is ok. It's right across the street from the mall. No hot tub - I wish I'd have realized that when booking. Pool was cold. Room was ok, air conditioner couldn't keep up so it was kind of stuffy in the room. Staff was pleasant. Breakfast was ok as well. Not sure if I would stay here again or not.

    « Lumpy bed »

    The overall appearance of this hotel is average, but the bed mattress and bed linens were marginal, at best. The bed mattress was not a "pillow-top" and was lumpy. The lines felt like gunny sacks. On a positive note, free breakfast was very good, with diverse items and well set-up. It was a quick overnight trip and the hotel located in a nice shopping area.

    « Nice large clean room »

    We stayed one night on 6/24/16. We arrived about 7pm, check in was very quick and staff friendly. First impression on walking in the front door was not good, the entry foyer was not welcoming at all (see pic) and made it look run down. Once inside, it certainly improved. We had a king suite 215 that was very comfortable with kitchenette. It smelled like a previous occupant had been smoking in the room despite it being designated nonsmoking. Otherwise it was very nice. Heard some noise from neighbors briefly but not bad. Breakfast was good, and the lady handling the breakfast service was very friendly. It's in an interesting location hidden behind other hotels, but wasn't difficult to find. We would certainly stay here again.

    « Not clean »

    Our room smelled bad, sprayed Lysol in the room to cover odor. Mattress pad was shredded, sheets and pillow cases has hair on them, runner at the foot of the bed had a stain that looked like blood on it. Had to call and ask for someone to at least come into the room with clean sheets and pillow cases and to take that runner out of the room. When the staff member arrived with the sheets, she threw them in the floor (which didn't look very clean) and told me that she didn't normally make the beds and wasn't sure how they did it. Just a dirty hotel. We felt dirty and uncomfortable the whole night. Would not recommend.

    « It filled our needs. »

    We just needed a place to stay one night on our way across South Dakota. BW Empire Towers is located just off I-29, but requires a little hunting to find it. It is tucked away behind some other buildings so you have to go past it and turn left at the next street and then immediately turn left again. We arrived too late to use the pool so can't comment on that. The beds were adequate and the room was quiet. When we went down to eat breakfast, the tables were full so we had to sit out in the lobby. It filled our needs for a place to crash one night and we would stay again.

    « Noisy »

    This is the first time I had stayed with a Best Western that had a room right under the stairs. People were going up and down all night, It was so noisy. They should not have a room under stairs......or at least warn the people that were staying there that there was this problem. When leaving in the morning to check out I mentioned it and basically they said "oh well that is the luck of the draw". I was quite surprised at the attitude since they seemed so nice when checking in. I guess they don't like complaints.

    Bad value for the price. Room was dirty, carpet stained and curtains torn. Breakfast was adequate, well-prepared. Had to report noisy tenants on the floor above, they finally went to sleep or passed out...not certain staff did anything about the problem. Exterior was littered and needed cleaning up.

    « Could have been better »

    Hotel is located near many stores and restaurants so thus is good. B W has a nice breakfast in the morning and the rooms are comfortable . The morning staff was excellent so my only issue is with the evening staff. When we arrived, the desk clerk just sat there and looked at me and finally only asked "do you have a reservation"? Seems like a hello or good evening would have been nicer.

    « OK hotel near I-29 »

    I am a Best Western person whenever possible and feasible. I was a little disappointed in this particular hotel as I believe it did not quite meet the high standards that the Best Western chain is known for. That being said, it is still a fine facility. Easy access to I-29 and very near just about all needed travel services (food, gas, convenience stores and the like) Be very careful after turning off of 41rst St., one can pass the driveway to the hotel very easily. You need to turn left immediately after the McDonald's on the left. Staff was great and the breakfast was satisfactory.

Jo in the Breakfast room makes you feel welcome and special. Frank who helps at the desk is a good guy and helpful.

    This is a very nice hotel. Super friendly staff. Staff was quick to assist in anything we needed. A well-stocked and good variety breakfast. Dining area has also recently been remodeled. Also the first time I've stayed at a completely non-smoking hotel. I really appreciated that. We had requested a rollaway bed. The first one we received was very uncomfortable. But staff immediately brought a different one and apologized over and over again about the inconvenience. I'd say this is one of the best experiences I've ever had at a hotel and will definitely stay here again the next time I am in Sioux Falls.

    Staff is super friendly and happy to help however needed. Rooms were clean. Breakfast was warm and good, although the breakfast area seemed a little tight and cramped. I also got stuck in a room by the back door and by the stairs, so we had to listen to the door slam and people pound up and down the stairs a lot. All in all, it was a decent hotel and I would stay again and recommend to others.

    I had an ADA accessible room across from the vending machines. I was concerned that it would be noisy, but the room was very quiet. Comfortable bed provided a very nice sleep. I would like to thank Jo and Tanya for the breakfasts. Good range of food, different selection every day, Eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, waffles. Hot food hot, cold food cold. Kept clean and well stocked. Only a few blocks from the 29 freeway, but a bit tough to locate. Worth the effort. Reasonable prices.

    Empire Towers is a no-frills hotel with pretty decent continental breakfast, standard rooms, and tremendous staff. Pros: the staff was awesome! Can't say anything else! They were helpful and attentive to our needs! Breakfast everyday was great! Can't complain there. Cons: the darn lock on our room kept locking us out and for me no exercise room though it did have a pool which was nice. The other problems was the guests next to us who were absolutely horrible but that's not the hotel fault.

    This is the less expensive but better reviewed of two BW hotels in Sioux Falls. And our experience here clinched that opinion. While the hotel is hidden in plain sight and not flashy in the exterior, the room was well apportioned and very comfortable. Breakfast was also above average. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

    The friendly staff greeted me with freshly baked cookies and directions to nearby restaurants. The room was very clean and comfortable. The hot breakfast included biscuits & gravy, scrambled and hard-boiled eggs, pastries, breads, fruit, several types of cereal and beverages. It's close to 4lst Street and the Empire Mall, although a little tricky to find the entrance. Follow the directions on their web site. I will definitely stay there again.

    « Hotel that fit our needs »

    My husband had an impromptu business trip in the area and asked me to go along. We had to have a hotel that would take dogs since we couldn't find someone to take ours on such short notice. Trip advisor let me add a note about it when I booked the room, but it didn't come through on the hotel end when we checked in so there was an extra fee, which I was expecting. For a hotel that takes pets there wasn't much of an area to walk them, but we improvised and walked around the block a couple of times instead. The hotel was very clean. The breakfast had a great variety of things to choose from: waffles, pastries, eggs, yogurt, cereal, sausage, gravy and biscuits, etc. We didn't get a chance to try the pool, but the area looked nice. You could hear a little bit of sound from the other rooms, but not too bad. We were about a block off a major highway and you couldn't hear any noise from that at all. The bed was comfortable, but you might want to bring your own pillows if you aren't used to really thick pillows. The front desk attendant was very helpful with getting copies of the receipts for expense purposes and explaining the amenities of the hotel. Having a fridge and microwave in the room came in handy since we had left overs from a really good restaurant in town.

    I'm always greeted with courteous and professional staff members at every hotel that I stay at. since i stay mostly at certain one's, they have become more like family than just personnel staff members . The pet fee is very reasonable. I really enjoy the hot breakfast bar in the mornings. If a guest leaves hungry, they are either too picky or in a rush to get to their next destination. They're very good about notifying me of up-coming rewards specials. i find the shower/bath always clean so that I can take a long relaxing bath if I choose to.

    « Best Hotel Experience in Sioux Falls! »

    I was unable to travel 300 miles home after a same day surgery because I was ill from the anesthesia, so was looking for a hotel that had comfortable beds. We were familiar with the area and the reviews were favorable, so we stopped to inquire about the availability of a room on the 1st floor. The lady that checked us in, D'Nell (forgive me if it's misspelled), was beyond kind, compassionate, and helpful. I was miserable and all I wanted was to be in my own home resting! D'Nell checked us into a room on the first floor near an exit, provided me with some fresh baked oatmeal raisin cookies, an extra pillow, & even sent me a candy bar because I had mentioned a craving for chocolate. The room was clean, quiet, & modern, the beds very comfortable, and wii fi worked great. The next morning we were pleasantly surprised to find that the continental breakfast had a large variety of food & drink items with both cold & hot foods. Even though I was ill, overall it was the best hotel experienced I have ever had...thanks to the kindness of strangers and the comfort of my room. This is now my first hotel choice for every future stay in Sioux Falls!

This hotel had great mattress and pillows that stayed lofty to keep the proper neck alignment. Slept like a baby in a hotel for the first time in over 10 years!! Room was clean, warm and comfortable.

Hotel was very clean and quiet, slept like a log. I love BW for all those reasons and Sioux Falls gets my best rating for treating us like family. Good job you guys

    « First night in the U.S.A. »

    We arrive in Sioux Falls after travelling for 32 hours and 4 flights from Australia. We had booked in advance. The cab driver was a little unsure where the motel was but after conferring with his NAVMAN we arrived safe and sound with only a short delay. Cory, the young man at reception, was very helpful (full marks to you Cory), and we were settled in our room very quickly with no fuss. He was able to assist with locating a restaurant for a late dinner. We were so impressed that we used this motel again on our return trip 2 weeks later with the same amount of assistance. The room itself was clean, spacious and the bed was very comfortable. We really didn't mind that the bathroom vanity unit was located outside the actual bathroom. Breakfast was basic but filling. Very friendly staff. Courtesy vehicle was available to transfer to the airport on departure. Location was OK, we really just needed somewhere to stay whilst waiting for next flight. It snowed rather heavily so we didn't get a chance to do too many touristy type things. There were several dining options within walking distance (the Red Lobster is NEVER open on a Monday), shopping Mall also within walking distance, Walmart just down the street. However, there is a courtesy vehicle you can book to drive you to "Ruby Tuesday" restaurant which was very good tucker.

    Nice quality place in convenient location in Sioux Falls. Quiet, with nice amenities and friendly staff. Great choice. Clean. Good breakfast with many options. Rooms are large and comfortable. Nice hot shower. The hotel smells fresh and has a nice feel to it.... hall ways, lobby.... all good. Cookies baked and put out in the evening. Juice, water and cold water as well as coffee and tea available in Breakfast room anytime. It is all good at this Best Western. Simple and stress free.

    Clean friendly bright and cheerful. We were very very happy with our choice and our experience. Couldn't have been more pleased. Starting with the young man at the front desk when we came in on Wed. night. So helpful and so kind. He truly made our experience what it was by establishing that kind of atmosphere.

    « another great stay! »

    I have stayed at the Empire Towers a couple different times. I have not been unhappy with my choice. Friendly staff and big rooms. The lady who does the Breakfast is super accommodating, always there with a smile and ready to help! pool area is always kept picked up which is a plus to me. They have encouraged me to use the breakfast room as an area to visit with my Sioux falls family members. I just love this place!!!!!!!

    I was very pleased with my room. It was very clean, smelled nice, and had modern decor. It had a microwave and fridge in the room, too. The beds were very comfortable and the towels were soft and fluffy. I used the pool, which was very nice and warm. There is not a hot tub. I had a waffle and coffee in the morning, which was very nice. They even have real cream for the coffee. The hotel is very conveniently located, just off 41st street. I will be staying there again in December.

    Fast check in, courteous and professional staff, clean rooms with lots of amenities. Great internet service and hot breakfast. Nice and quiet for a good nights sleep. Great value. This is not the first night staying at Best Western and it won't be my last.

    Helpful staff gave us directions around town. Also it was nice to have more options then coffee, the cookies in the evening were great. Nice close to shopping in town. I will stay again if we come to Sioux Falls.

    We stayed for my nephew's marching band festival. It is a very nice, very clean hotel. The breakfast was normal continental fair - but hey, I love free food! I am very picky about my bed and I slept very well. The pillows were great - the only thing that would have been better is if my wiggly son had slept on the floor :) The gentleman at the front desk helped us figure out where the best place to see the Festival of Bands parade as well as how to find the field for the field competition. All in all - it was a good price, and a very good place to stay. I will be coming back the next time we make our way across the state.

    Hotel needs some up dates esp. in the rooms. Great staff! Location in town next to some good eats. Kind of a bad area behind hotel. Breakfast was really good they had it all. Very clean best coffee on the road.

    « Service with a capital "S" »

    The staff at this super clean property went above and beyond in their efforts to welcome us and make our stay a memorable one. Traveling on a motorcycle, my wife and I decided to spend an extra day in Sioux Falls to wait out predicted foul weather. Frank at the front desk was very helpful suggesting various local sites and attractions and, knowing we were on a motorcycle, went so far as to arrange a free shuttle to take us downtown. The result was that we had a wonderful time despite the weather and we definitely recommend this property.

    « I won the Trifecta wtih this hotel »

    The Empire Towers is close the I-29 for travelers, close to a multitude of restaurants and in the center of Sioux Falls' shopping meca. the rates are also quite affordable at under $90 per night. My wife had a late doctor appointment and we were going to Omaha the next day, so we stayed at the affordable and convenient Empire Tower. We were pleasantlysurpirsed by the spacious and clean rooms and the out pouring of friendliness from staff and fellow guests. The breakfast looked and smelled tempting, but with the closeness of the great offering of restaurants we opted to eat at a local eating delight.

    « Just As Promised »

    This property is clean and comfortable. It was conveniently located for a road trip stop -- not too far from the highway but quiet, and a reasonably short walk to good restaurants. Front desk staff were pleasant and helpful. Compared to some other BW properties, this one represents very good value for the money.

    « Enjoyable, Comfortable Stay »

    After a long day of traveling, we appreciated getting into our room which was clean and comfortable. We also appreciated that there were several restaurants nearby to choose from for our supper and we could walk to. if in the the area again, we would not hesitate to stay here again.

    With Frank and Jenny at the Front desk you can rest assured that you will have an enjoyable stay. The rooms are cleaned to perfection by a more than competent staff, the hot breakfast is wonderful. You may pay a little more than some of the hotels across the street.. But, you get what you pay for.
