This hotel wants to be nice. It sort of tries. Upon entry to my room, I immediately noticed that one of the few pieces of north woods decor (a framed picture) was falling apart. There's no way the cleaning staff could have missed it. Made me wonder what else they skipped cleaning. They provide shampoo, condition, lotion, body wash, and... More

In town for our son's weekend baseball tournament and his whole team stayed at this hotel. Although we did have to sign some sort of document which we dubbed the "Children's Riot Act" to ensure we controlled our kids, all in all this was a great hotel for us. The lobby was welcoming and the rooms were spacious. Free-wi-fi was... More

This is always a fabulous hotel. From the moment you walk in you're greeted warmly and professionally. There are many options for the breakfast selections from scrambled eggs (and they're good!) To oatmeal, fresh fruit and pastries. There is also some snack type items (warm and cold) for happy hour. There are places to eat within walking distance (Chili's and... More

The room was large, attractively decorated and comfortable. The staff was helpful. We missed their manager's reception by a few minutes, but they still gave each of us a voucher for a free drink for that evening. Breakfast was very good

I have stayed at the Wildwood Lodge a few times. I have always stayed in a deluxe king suite, which were always fantastic. Large desk for work, comfortable bed, window with a decent view. Not this time. Through some snafu at the front desk, I did not receive the deluxe king suite, but a pool side queen bed room. No... More

I've stayed here a number of times whilst on business, Jon and the team make you feel most welcome. Hotel is clean, rooms spacious (by UK standards!) and a decent breakfast. The shuttle service is an added bonus. For the price, no complaints.

Clean, nicely decorated, good value. Many restaurants and shopping close. We had good service and a generous breakfast for hotel fare . We would definitely stay at this hotel again. Good meeting rooms.

Hotel has potential to be very nice. We got a great rate, and ended up with a huge 2 room 2 bathroom suite. The breakfast was fine hotel fare, staff was friendly, pool and hot tub area were nice. Exterior is nice, yet slightly unkempt. The hotel seems to be badly in need of common maintenance and upgrades. I requested... More

The feel of the place is great. The lobby is very inviting with room to have friends over and have an inviting place to hang out. The room was large by comparison with others and it was clean. Overall the room was quiet and very comfortable. We did have 2 complaints: The electrical where the coffee maker was to be... More

The staff was wonderful, especially Katherine. The breakfast was delicious. The pool was clean and the hot tub was nice and private. They kept the hotel quiet for sleeping guest. Would definitely stay there again when in Iowa.
