We stayed here for 3 nights on a family vacation. It is only 30 mins to Arnolds park. The beds were comfortable and it was very clean. My kids loved the pool. The deluxe continental breakfast was very good and changed daily. The place was quiet and enjoyable. Would stay again.

This is a nice, quiet hotel in a small town in Iowa. It is close to the Iowa lakes area - much quieter town/city to stay in rather than staying closer to Spirit Lake. Pool area, hot tub. Your basic Sleep Inn - everything you would expect. Maybe 20 miles away from Okoboji/Arnolds Park.

My parents live in Estherville. Since my father died and my mother is in a nursing home there, I have been staying in this hotel about once a month. Not only do they offer a special rate for visitors to the nursing homes in town, they have also been very kind and welcoming, remebering me from one stay to the... More

Driving into the property, the first sign of an issue was having to navigate around a pothole. As we exited our vehicle, numerous weeds in cracked asphalt and landscaping added to our apprehension. However, we were checked in courteously and quickly and the room was at that point satisfactory outside of the bedding which seemed devoid of either a base... More

Thank you for your review. We are aware of the property lot needing resurfaced but tough to do with the lot generally full of cars. No excuses-but you're right the weeds have gotten away from us due to all the rain.We are working on it. Also because of all the rain, the ants have come into the building. Ecolab, our... More

Quiet location. Plenty of parking. Rooms were clean. Staff very friendly and the breakfast was well worked and stocked and re-stocked according to usage. It's nice in this small town to see all the guests friendly towards one another too. Cleaning ladies always smiling, helpful and friendly. A pre-written message praying for me, my family and my travels that greeted... More

I have stayed in Estherville several times. Always at the Sleep Inn. It is close to a few places to eat and pretty quiet. It isn't that close to any of my customers - but I will stay here over hotels in the town I am going to because I know I will get a good night's rest.

The place had great service with the staff, the rooms were fair, but could have been a little cleaner. The hot tub, which is one of my favorite things at any hotel, was on the cold side and a little under maintained. Overall, it was OK. Unfortunately we were woke early when we wanted to sleep in! The fire alarm... More

We sincerely apologize regarding the Fire Alarm being set off. An unpreventable freak accident. Checked back on Hot Tub Temps and everything looks good-so I'm wondering if it was the air temp that was too cool? I would also be interested in what the cleanliness issues were. Nothing was really specified. Hope you try us out again. More

As the saying goes, "It's the little things that matter..." Overall a sound choice for a stay. The breakfast selections were totally typical and rather lame. Other than that I give this location positive marks. I would of preferred a better showerhead. So many hotels seem to have ones that just don't work right, more dribble than spray. Again, it...
