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

Stayed there two nights October 25 and 26. Very impressed with cleanliness of room and efficiency of staff. Breakfast was good and I was impressed that they opened up a conference room to accomodate the breakfast overflow. Staff was professional and responsive. I especially appreciated the free shuttle from the airport! Will definitely stay again.

Our stay at Wildwood was most pleasant. Check-in was smooth and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and spacious. The breakfast was comparable to what is offered at Hampton and the complimentary wine/beer in the evening was a nice surprise. We would stay here again if ever in the area.

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.
