I had hoped this would be a good experience trying a new hotel because of the great reviews here on Trip Advisor. But I was very disappointed! My biggest peeve was the extremely poor customer service. We were having a hard time sleeping because our room window overlooked the indoor pool, and there was lots of pool noise (the pool... More

We always try to stay here. Hotel was close to my appointment for the next morning. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was good. Room was clean. Shower was hot and was a walkin shower that was great as I didnt have to climb over a tub. Will stay here again.

If you are looking for a well maintained hotel with an outdoor theme which is carried through the entire hotel, this is the place to stay. The hotel was built in 1996 and is very well maintained. Great pool and hot tub area. Rooms clean and large. Bathrooms are a little dated but very well maintained. Monday through Thursday you... More

Bed was not very comfortable for me. Breakfast was okay, nothing special. They gave us one drink coupon each. If you are thinking the manager reception will be like an Embassy Suites you will be disappointed. Overall, just okay. Hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating.

The rooms are quiet, clean and the decor is definitely "Up North". Hospitality is displayed by all the team members. The bathroom is spacious and the towels are fluffy. The continental breakfast is healthy and bountiful. Rates are reasonable and book directly on the hotel website.

The service, accommodations, and continental breakfast were excellent. We were staying at Wildwood for the weekend to attend the Kansas State/Iowa State football game. The front staff were extremely helpful in pointing us to a great Mexican restaurant that was within walking distance. The continental breakfast was very nice, from the Belgium waffles to the oatmeal to the hard boiled... More

We was just in Clive visiting family and going to the state fair. We had a handicapped room on the ground floor, I don't know why but it was spacious with a large bathroom. The air conditioner was a little noisy but we only used it in the daytime. The lobby was nice with the out door cabin look. Breakfast... More

I hate to give a bad review when so many people are so fond of this place. However, this is the only time I remember that I cut short a stay to change hotels. I will start by saying that the public areas are nice. My husband particularly enjoyed the cabin-in-the-woods motif. The pool was interesting with a "water fall"... More

My wife and I stayed her for a couple of nights when we traveled to visit the Iowa state fair. I chose it because of the many great ratings. I was a little disappointed. In our room, some of the buttons on the telephone wouldn't work. The front grate of the air conditioning was detached and hanging halfway off. I... More
