To accommodate a sports weekend in Sioux Falls, we booked a reservation at this property. Having stayed at numerous Econo Lodge properties in the past, we were confident our choice was sound.
It is difficult to begin and end this review, as there was little that was right and proper about the facility and its operation. The sole positive was check-in, which went fairly smoothly.
Overall condition of the property is a D-. Maintenance is sorely lacking, in common areas - and, especially, in guest rooms.
Housekeeping is abysmal. Debris on desktop & floors; hair in bathroom fixtures; rooms inadequately made-up and restored to "check-in" condition.
Interaction with Front Desk staff was disappointing, with select staff being dressed much like "working girls."
Common areas were inhabited by "guests" of questionable ilk. The lobby ended up being a hangout place where food and beverage were being consumed during browsing the web (even though the breakfast area was wide open).
Check-out was disastrous. I received a call (awakening me) from the Front Desk, inquiring how I was going to pay for my room (the room was prepaid). From the time I arrived at the Front Desk - until the matter was finally resolved - was 1 hour 25 minutes.
Under no circumstances should ANYONE consider this property UNLESS they are OK with a property one small step above a flop house. I have been a road warrior for >35 years, and know of what I speak.
