Positive Reviews

Great value for the price.

Several guests have said that this hotel offers great value for the price.

Dog and kid-friendly.

Some guests with kids say they have appreciated having the convenience of the nice pool area for their young ones to play in. The area features a water slide, which helps keep children entertained. Several people also expressed appreciation that the hotel allows dogs.

Great, central location.

A number of guests at the Dakotah Lodge said they have also appreciated being so close to many Sioux Falls area attractions.

Negative Reviews

Be prepared for not-so-nice noise at times.

If you can, avoid getting a room away from the pool and elevator areas. There have been complaints about excessive noise levels coming from the hallways around these areas, especially from children running around, as this is a very family-friendly hotel. There have also been comments about noisy neighbors.

Problems with the pool.

Though the pool is a definite highlight and positive aspect of this hotel, several guests have also complained about not being able to use the facilities during their visits. One guest said that the pool was rented out for swim parties, which meant not all guests were able to enjoy the area. Other people mentioned the pool area was shut down for extended maintenance during their visits.

Breakfast can be mediocre.

A few people said they wished the breakfast had more options to choose from. Though nice to have a complimentary meal, visitors should know that it is pretty basic. The breakfast area is also small and can be a bit chaotic and crowded in the mornings.
