This is a very nice hotel for the money. Rooms clean, parking is close. The shower needed some work...cheap plastic wall...seemed like the whole wall could fall...Rm 340. Nice room otherwise. Oops looks like a need a few more words to make the program happy.

Staff were friendly, have stayed here several times, some of the rooms are on the small side but everything is always very clean, breakfast was above average. Restaurant was being remodeled and the bar staff were having to do a lot of running but were still very helpful.

It's right off I-35 and I needed a break from driving so I pulled in. The receptionist was very friendly and I was glad to see that the TV in my room had some HD channels since there was a game I wanted to watch. Other than that, though, it's a very unattractive old building that's in desperate need of... More

My family just went down to visit my Dad and at the time that was the hotel we could afford and it was really nice. The rooms are very well taken care of and the beds were comfortable. The receptionist was very kind and helped us with all of our questions.

This is the best place to stay in the Clear Lake/Forest City area of Iowa. The attached restaurant is what makes the place special. There are very slim pickings for restaurants in this area. There is a back section that is connected by a tunnel to the main section of the hotel, but that is the place where they have... More

We stayed for my son's birthday in October. I was thrilled when I found out I got bumped up to a suite, the extra room was appreciated. We used the pool, rented a movie and had a hot free breakfast. The staff was knowledgeable about the area and very friendly. We will definitely go back.

Room remodeling is ongoing, good beds, Very nice breakfast choices, with real plates and silverware, no plastic and styrafoam. Good parking for large trucks and trailers. I will stay at the motel, on the next trip to the Clear Lake, Iowa area.
