We are frequent visitors to Catfish Bend Casino for a variety of reasons, primarily because it's the only one in close proximity. They also have a decent buffet and spa which my wife and mother enjoy. We generally have a good time, with a couple of caveats. First, don't go there with the idea of winning. We've been at the...

Everything was top notch, had a beautiful large, quiet room, bed was maybe a little softer than we like but we slept good. Wonderful big bathroom with large counter space. They gave us complimentary breakfast buffet tickets each day. We stayed for three nights and would stay again.

The layout of the place is confusing, and finding the hotel reception desk was a hunt. The casino reeked of smoke, and the décor of the public facilities (walls, carpeting, baseboards, etc.) has seen better days. The room was fine, but the hall noise due to the overexcited kids running to game rooms, the water park and other entertainment rooms... More

I have stayed in this resort multiple times for Business. The rooms are surprisingly well appointed, very modern and spacious. The rooms in the spa come outfitted with a microwave and small refrigerator good for multinight stays. Very good value for the money. I have found the staff to pleasant and they try to accommodate you. The buffet is mediocre... More

Room was nice even though we requested 2 doubles and got one king. Not a deal breaker. I agree with other reviewer about the bathroom. I like having a shower door to keep the heat in. And very weird that someone can see my silhouette in the bedroom. Creepy... Just saying. Casino was okay, a lot of penny slots.

This is the second time I have been to Catfish Bend Inn & Spa. This is a nice little hotel with nice amenities. If you are looking for a nice quiet place, you will enjoy Catfish Bend Inn which has an age restriction of no one under 21. For families, Pzazz Resort Hotel is located on the other side of... More

First time to visit Iowa, and first stay at Catfish Bend Inn. Will definitely be returning when it's warm so we can enjoy the outdoor amenities! Everyone was extremely friendly, the rooms were lovely, beds extremely comfortable!

My husband and I had our wedding reception in the Event Center. The event coordinator was absolutely fantastic to work with. She was very accommodating with our needs. We booked a hotel block that utilized both the Catfish Bend Inn and Spa and The Pzazz. Our honeymoon suite was beautiful and was a small apartment! The other rooms at the... More

First of all, I would recommend this hotel to anyone....The hotel room was very nice.....We had a couples massage and it was very relaxing.(Jessica and Jemima were our therapists) ..Everyone we encountered was super professional.. We saw a band in the event center~it was awesome! And had breakfast at the Edgewater Grill and it was good! A++++++++++++++++++++
