Thousands of bikers travel for many miles via motorcycle or by a vehicle towing motorcycles to reach their final Black Hills destination. Sioux Falls hotels are a popular stopping point along the route due to its location approximately 5 hours east of Sturgis. The Ramada Sioux Falls has a great location just off of interstate 229 with easy access to interstate 90 for those going to or returning from this huge event.
The 72nd annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is scheduled to be held August 6-12 this year. Last year the event attracted more than 400,000 motorcycle fans from around the world, and attendance is expected to increase this year. The small town of Sturgis normally has a population of around 7,000. With this huge influx of people one time per year, lodging can be hard to find and many bikers choose locations within one day’s drive of the town itself. When deciding on Sioux Falls hotels, the Ramada Sioux Falls is the perfect distance for those who do not want to be quite as close to the action, but to still get a taste of it.
For others, the Sioux Falls Ramada is positioned to be a stop along the way – a perfect oasis to refresh for the next days travel.
“It can be exhausting to spend all day riding across the state in the hot sun,” said Sioux Falls Ramada General Manager Jean Hoesing. “Bikers arrive tired and sore after a day – or sometimes several days – of driving or riding.”
The Sioux Falls hotel’s on-site restaurant and bar, Castaways, along with easy access to the interstate make the Ramada Sioux Falls a convenient and relaxing choice after a full day on a bike. This Sioux Falls hotel also has Jacuzzi suites, ideal for a relaxing soak to soothe away the aches and pains of the day. For more information on accommodations, visit http://www.siouxfallsramada.com/
“August tends to be the peak of our busy summer season,” said Hoesing. “Much of this can be directly attributed to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally along with other fairs and events that happen locally around this same time such as the Sioux Empire Fair.”
Planning is essential if you are arranging to take in any part of the week-long Sturgis Motorcycle Rally event. Rooms at Black Hills or Sioux Falls Hotels can fill very quickly, so advanced reservations are highly recommended.
