1. La Quinta Inn & Suites by Wyndham Sioux Falls, for a spotless sleep

La Quinta Inn & Suites insists that you never stay in a fleabag highway motel ever again. Their city view rooms are spectacularly clean – at least, that is, until your shih tzu sheds everywhere. Plus, you’re staying right in the thick of the Retail District, perfect to rack up credit card points with a shopping spree at the Empire Mall. Just make sure you don’t forget to pick up something for your four-legged friend – perhaps a doggie-sized rain jacket for visiting the falls?

2. Staybridge Suites Sioux Falls Southwest, an IHG Hotel, for sneaking a snack

Tucked off of I-229 on a quiet street, Staybridge Suites is a welcome respite for any dog who isn’t particularly fond of car rides. Pull over and let them pad their way up to a suite that feels just like home. You’ll have a full kitchen at your disposal so you won’t have to leave them for meals out, save for a quick run down to the complimentary evening reception to grab a drink for you and a snack for them.

3. Hyatt Place Sioux Falls South, for lake shore walks

Right on the shores of Lake Lorraine, Hyatt Place is a good place for a well-deserved rest after a long day of Sioux Falls sightseeing. Lake view rooms come with Cozy Corners, a perfect little spot for your dog to cuddle up. You could upgrade to a superior room with a patio or balcony, but we find it’s best to get a breath of fresh air by walking to the lake – it’s also where your pup’s bathroom is.

5. Holiday Inn Sioux Falls-City Centre, an IHG Hotel, for riverside sniffing

You’re only a block away from the Big Sioux River when you stay at Holiday Inn, so make sure to pack a long leash. Wake up with Rover by your side and order up breakfast at Grille 100, making sure to slip some scraps into a napkin for the old boy. Head to the river and start hiking the trails north to Falls Park. When you make the journey back, let them hog the bed for a bit while you soak in the whirlpool.

6. TownePlace Suites by Marriott Sioux Falls, for bark and ride

If you’ve got your furry best friend and your bicycle in tow, TownePlace Suites is the spot for you. From the full kitchens and ergonomic workstations in the suites, to the 24/7 fitness center and pool area, this extended stay hotel will have you falling into step with your everyday routine. When you’ve got time to spare, strap on a leash, grab your bike, and cross the Snake River for a cycle/run with your dog to Dunham Park.

7. Homewood Suites by Hilton Sioux Falls, for bringing the whole litter

Homewood Suites has the whole family covered when you come to Sioux Falls. Pets are welcome to crash in your pad, and for the little ones who are still on all fours, cribs and highchairs are available. The free hot breakfast in the morning is a treat, but with how hard it is to wrangle toddlers and terriers, you may want to grab coffee before even thinking about scooping those scrambled eggs.

8. Candlewood Suites Sioux Falls, an IHG Hotel, for cozy cat naps

You’re within walking distance of shopping, dining and nature when you stay at Candlewood Suites. You’ll hardly have a reason to leave, though – the full kitchen, flexible workspace and other home comforts will keep you and your four-legged friend comfortable. You may consider Candlewood Suites one of the best pet-friendly hotels in Sioux Falls if you’re looking for lengthy riverside walks. In just short of 2mi (3.2km), you can walk your pooch to the riverside Sertoma Park.
