We stayed in a suite. Loved the space & kitchenette. A really nice location. Check-in staff friendly. The house keeping was somewhat hit & miss, but front desk did deal with it swiftly. Clean, however the hotel could do with renovation.

We went to Winterset for a pre- cruise ,2 days and it was enough ,the standard room is just o.k ,the bathroom is very small , old, and moisture on the ceiling . All the doors make noise . But the hotel has a great location near to the beach and restaurants . They need another makeover .

Although this hotel was clean and might be good for a week stay, it is not good for the night before a cruise. Even though they say it's only 4 miles from airport, it cost 22.50 by taxi to get there, and then another 21.00 to get to the cruise port the next day. Those prices are without tips. Also... More

We arrived late from a long 23 hour drive. We checked in and we thought it was well decorated. Very cute! Beds were comfortable. Loved the convenience of the kitchen. Great location. We walked down and around the corner to get food. We wish we could have stayed longer but had to leave for our cruise. The price was great... More

My husband and I just returned from Fort Lauderdale where we stayed for two nights at the Winterset Suites. We were pleasantly surprised at the size of our room. We plan to go back next time and do less driving and more relaxing. Though we didn't use the kitchen to cook, we loved the full size fridge and plan to... More

shayenne, You are 100% correct. Booking a year in advance should guarantee you a room and we really apologize for walking you to a sister hotel. This is definitely not the usual practice and hope that you'll give us a chance to show you what is. We appreciate your review. Thanks, NBV More

You hear other guests outside your room, even if they are whispering! Vice versa, you really need to think about what conversation you have in your room cause everyone at the pool will hear you. The doors and walls are not straight but leaning. The floor leans as well. There are many cracks in the tile floor. There is no... More
