This is an older hotel that needs a complete remodel. The carpet looks like it's from the 1970's, not the 2000's. The same can be said for the wallpaper. If they don't want to change carpet maybe they could have the carpets shampooed. The room we were in had the walls in the bathtub area redone and it looked like... More

This motel is doing some renovation which helps freshen the look. Some of the needed work is yet to be done. The location is very convenient to the freeway yet it is quiet in the room. Bennigans is attached which is very handy and the food, drinks and service in the restaurant were great. On the down side, the HVAC... More

Comfortable quiet visit to two cities in Iowa. Soft inviting beds with great pillows and mellow atmosphere This hotel is well located between Mason City and Clearlake in Iowa and is a good value with up to date décor. Staff and provisions were better than average and graticious offered.

This is the best hotel in Clear Lake. It has the friendliest and most helpful staff I have experienced in years of travelling. I highly recommend this hotel for Clear Lake visit. Clear Lake is a great town to visit.

I am from Clear Lake so I knew the hotel was about 50 years old so décor was a bit dated. The staff was very helpful. The rooms were comfortable and the wi-fi signal was great. The breakfast was also very good. The fact that Bennigan's was part of the hotel complex was also real plus. We will stay there... More

I was back in my hometown to attend the funeral of a good childhood and young adult (lifetime) friend. I found the hotel staff to be very friendly and helped in everyway, other than not making more sausage gravy when needed and requested.

I do need much a bed, TV and bath. They were small rooms,... More

Our son's wedding reception was held here in July 2015. Everything went smooth from the planning to the actual event. The staff was very accommodating, the reception buffet was delicious. Our hotel room was very nice and breakfast was tasty.

In town for a conference stayed only one night, which was one too many. I thought I had time-traveled back to the 80's. Not sure the carpets have been cleaned since then! Strange building configuration put me in an out building accessible by a smelly damp underground tunnel. The fitness center was a joke tucked away in a musty storage... More
