Hotel Overview

Welcome to Best Western Vermillion Inn!

The University of South Dakota and Coyote Athletics are a big draw, but guests at our Vermillion hotel stay with us for many reasons.

Show More / Less

Whether you’re here for a Coyote game, graduation or for water recreation on the Missouri River, there’s something for everyone to enjoy near our Vermillion hotel. Explore the famous Lewis and Clark Trail, and enjoy the biggest indoor pool in Vermillion just steps away from your spacious room. Stay in or head out for an adventure. It’s all possible when guests choose the friendliest, most comfortable hotel in the area.

Breakfast waffles and hot sandwiches are just a couple of the items featured at our free breakfast buffet. Nothing starts the morning off quite like a selection of your favorites from pastries to a cereal bar. Bottomless 100% Arabica coffee or cold juice is the perfect touch. It’s just what you need before heading out to the National Music Museum or canoeing, boating or kayaking on the river.

Of course, we understand that guests want to keep up with their fitness routine even on vacation. A variety of newly remodeled equipment in the fitness center of our Vermillion hotel provides you with everything you need to keep feeling and looking your best. We’re a popular destination for tourists because of all the outdoor activities, but we cater to all.

Business travelers with Eagle Creek Software, Polaris Incorporated, the university and service men and women with the South Dakota National Guard are just a few of our regular guests. The university draws businesses here for the athletic department and families count on us to be a home away from home when in town for graduation and other special events. Small meetings are often held in our spacious breakfast area, making us an excellent choice for business guests. No matter what’s brought you to the region, you’ll feel relaxed and welcome the moment you arrive. Enjoy your stay.
