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.

Our room was nice and the breakfast was a little above average. The location is good. It is difficult to get connected to the wifi and after we did get connected it was so slow to load a site it was useless. I turned off the wifi connection on my phone and just used my cellular connection.

Clearly an older hotel that has undergone a few renovations and could use some freshening up. The lodge theme was charming- that's where it ended. If the free breakfast appeals to you, I'd suggest you not base your decision on that or you'll be disappointed. Room was clean (?) but clearly showed its age. The same for pool and hot... More

This lodge themed hotel is kind of like getting locked in Bass Pro after hours and sleeping in their display over night. We checked in to two rooms. #307 and #219 (?). #307 was very well decorated in the lodge theme. #219 was nice but very noisy from the guests above so we changed rooms to #103. This room was... More
