Potential to be much better.

Pros: Comfortable beds
Cons: Management, customer service, cleanliness, maintenance of amenities.
I hardly ever post reviews, but this was such an unnecessary disappointment, that I feel obligated to do so. We stayed here on our way home after camping for 6 nights and were looking forward to hotel amenities such as pool, hot tub, breakfast and comfortable beds. The only part this Sleep Inn delivers on are the comfortable beds. Nice mattresses and down comforters..we slept great! The rest of the stay was ludicrous. We went down to breakfast (7 of us) at 9:15am because we were very tired. While a 9:30 breakfast close on a Sunday is silly enough, at 9:15 there was nothing left! Not even cutlery! I asked if they were going to restock, and the guy running it basically laughed at me and said "It's over, there's nothing left". How do you not have enough food on hand for a known quantity of people? I had to go out to our camping kit to get spoons so that my kids could eat a handful of cereal and yogurt because all the eggs, sausage, gravy, waffles and toast that I had paid for as part of my hotel stay...was gone. I was steamed...I had a conversation with them to let them know, and they had no response or offer to compensate. We decided to try the pool and hot tub before we had to check out. Long story short, the pool was icy cold (kids couldn't hack it), and the hot tub was the temperature that the pool should have been, and had a grime ring in it. We left this place very disgusted and frustrated.

This hotel needs a remodel soon. Even though the rooms are non-smoking now doesn't mean they always were. There were cigarette burns on the carpet and everytime I entered the room that is all I could smell. I had to wash everything in my suitcase when I got home, whether I wore it or not. And the comforter on the bed was really dirty around the edges.

Pros: The location, it was close to where my meetings were at.
I guess my overall impression of the motel was that of disappointment. My biggest disappointment was that the hot tub was not working, as that was of great importance to me.

Nice hotel

Pros: Location
Cons: they could add a few more items to there breakfast. The carpet in the halls and stairs need to be replaced.
Location: Denny Sanford center is only a few blocks away.
The staff was very friendly. The room was comfortable. There was a pocket door for the bathroom that didn't lock. It was only a few blocks from the Denny Sanford Center. I did not know that they had a pool and a hot tub otherwise I would have packed a swimsuit. Good price and comfortable.

Sleep In

Their staff was courteous, room were nice and clean and I enjoyed the pool, hot-tub and small weight room. I would recommend this to anyone in the area for a reasonably priced room with above average amenities.
