... but maybe it's better that I didn't get my wish.
The monster driving day ended in Sioux Falls, shortly after we entered into South Dakota. With a population of 150,000 people it is not only the largest city in the state, but apparently it is the brightest beacon of civilization between Minneapolis and Denver. Not knowing any of this upon arrival, finding a fun town was a pleasant surprise.

TravelPod Member ReviewsSleep Inn Sioux Falls
This was a large room for a Sleep Inn. Very nicely decorated and had recliner. I love having a recliner since I use my computer a lot in the hotel rooms. It was clean and comfortable, with microwave, refrigrator, LCD TV and great air conditioning. the rooms always look fresh.
However, when we walked into the room the odor about knocked us down. There was a very strong odor. I opened the window hoping it would help. I finally found a vanilla plugin that was causing the problem. I sat it outside on the windows ledge. I would have asked to be moved to another room, but there were no more rooms available.
