If you've ever been to the Stoney Creek Inn, it looks like the Wildwood Lodge is going by the same playbook. This Northwoods-themed hotel, owned by the same company that owns the famous Machine Shed Restaurant, was welcoming when I walked in the door. The general manager and I had an email dialogue due to some special arrangements concerning this... More

Came to this charming hotel for a simple overnight stay while passing through. What a nice find! Nicely decorated. Loved that they welcomed us with drink coupon for a free wine =). Our kids (6 and 4) loved that that the sliding door in our room backed right up to the beautiful stone pool/hot tub area (something to note if... More

My husband and I stayed here after a tour of the Bridges of Madison County in Winterset. We thought this was one of THE nicest hotels we have stayed at and will definately go back. We have stayed at many hotels, but this one was top notch. Great pool, hottub and very nice breakfast. The area was convenient to many... More

The hotel is well decorated with an up north cabin theme which carries through from the reception area to the rooms themselves. Our room was huge: one room contained two queen beds, TV, chest of drawers, desk, and a chair, another room had two bunk beds, TV with a VCR/DVD player, chair, desk, and a chest of drawers, and we...

First time traveler to this hotel. I stayed here the week of June 9, 2014 for a business trip. Beautiful southwestern decor. The bed was great, good night sleep every night . The continental breakfast was nice, hot food was ready about 6:45-7:00am, wish it would have been ready at 6am.

We booked four nights at this hotel based on it's online reviews, and frankly, I expected much better. As soon as we walked in the door, we were informed by a bunch of intoxicated guests in the lobby that the pool was closed. Okay, thanks for that. The lady who checked us in was efficient, but not friendly, and she... More

What can I say. Impressive. We stayed 2 nights. It was quiet and clean. The bed was comfortable and it had very nice pillows. Breakfast was good (needed some meat or eggs) but enjoyable. Good location with several restaurants near by. The staff was friendly. The decor of the lobby and rooms was great. I have spent more on rooms... More

I've stayed here a couple of times now and just love it. #1: Wi-fi is a breeze! Staff people are friendly. Breakfast is good, and they don't stint on the fresh fruit -- uncommon with hotel breakfasts. Rooms are clean and spacious. You can walk to a couple of restaurants. I especially appreciated being able to buy a glass of... More

We were originally here for the ISU graduation. There were bad storms which ended up canceling our outbound flight, so we stayed an extra night. The shuttle had taken us to the airport, and because of the bad weather, we asked along the way if they had any rooms that night in case we got canceled. The general manager, who... More
