I really don't like to write negative stuff so all I am going to say is just don't. This place is not what it used to be so save the time and just don't. There are very few hotels in the area but I'm sure there are better ones than this.

This hotel needs a good updating. The ceiling tiles where broken and falling as you entered the room. The framework that hold the ceiling tiles in the bathroom where rusty. The one piece tub surround was cracked and a piece was missing. We had a tub faucet that leaked the three days we where there. We brought this to the... More

Unable to find the kind of lodging we prefer in the area, (old-fashioned, independent, drive up motels) we decided to give this Best Western a try. This was however, the least appealing accommodation of our entire three week road trip. The room wasn't terrible - it just wasn't that great. Clean - but not spotlessly clean. Worn furnishings, a musty... More

This hotel is by far one of the best we've stayed in. Rooms are really nice and clean and have a microwave and frig, staff are very friendly and helpful. Their breakfast is one of the best. You won't go away hungry with biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, french toast, muffins, cereal, fruit, yogurt.... Bennigan's restaurant is attached to hotel.... More

The hotel was well-situated in Clear Lake next to the highway to Mason City. It was friendly, clean, and very busy the weekend we were there. A wedding party, an 80th birthday party, and a baby shower were all going on. The kids liked the pool. The only drawback was the small elevator. It was very busy all the time.... More

When arriving it looks like a nice place, until they stick you in the slums of the hotel. The service was not great and they would not lift a finger to acomidate your needs. If you are just passing through and need a uncomfortable bed to lay your head, then this is the hotel for you, not a place to... More

Dear William, We have had a lot of contractors working in the area and appreciate their business as we do the day to day travelers. I went down to fitness center and personally checked out the tread mill and pushed the incline button and it worked just fine. I also tried the elliptical machine and it was working as well.... More

Nothing bad, nothing exciting. Decent location right off highway, has convenient Bennigans attached. Rooms were standard nothing bad. Elevator was slow and there was only one, so slow going during busy times (morning, afternoon) Do not suggest the free breakfast, seemed dirty and not good quality. Plates were dirty and serving area was dirty and coffee machine was broken, which... More
