I chose this hotel due to location. Close to ICCC where I hosted 3 training classes. The check in was good, room was clean, however, dated. Bed was extremely uncomfortable, rock hard. Staff was friendly and professional.

The hotel was pretty good and the rooms nice and spacious. However, we had to call out for the front desk staff to check-in AND check-out after waiting for awhile. Breakfast was good with a nice selection of hot and cold items, and the staff kept things well-stocked and clean. Didn't try the pool or hot tub but it looked... More

I wasn't sure what to expect, however this hotel was a great choice. It's not very big, which made it feel like a home away from home. The rooms were nice sized and clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The kids loved the pool ! I will definitely stay here again!

The rooms, lobby and pool area of the hotel were very clean and comfortable and the staff was always courteous and responsive to our requests. The kids loved playing in the nice sized pool. The only downfall was the breakfast buffet, which, although far from gourmet, was a wonderful offering. However, the upkeep of the buffet -- keeping food and... More

Smoking at entrances, had to run the gauntlet to avoid the smoke. Hotel is feeling tired and had problems with the key cards working. Some of the staff were not friendly and not professional. There is not much more to say but since I have to use 200 characters I am continuing to type. Value of hotel was poor for... More

We were in town with extended family for a memorial service. Though we were not able to get a handicapped room for my elderly parents we were accommodated with a first floor room which was essential. I appreciated that I could call ahead a few days and be nearly guaranteed that we could have that first floor room. Also, on... More

This hotel is just east of the main section of the city. It is quiet, well kept, and the fitness room is a little nicer than the average fitness center you find in hotels. The price was about 20$ too high for this type of hotel but there is very little to choose from in this area.

Stayed here for a friend's daughter's wedding. The hotel is located close to the mall and other shopping attractions in bustling Ft. Dodge. We were originally supposed to stay two nights, but had to cancel our first night due to family issues. The hotel was very accommodating to our sudden change. We needed to check in extra early on Saturday... More

I look at reviews and they were right on!! Will be back for sure!! Rooms were clean, hotel staff was very nice. Accommodated our stay in every way!! I don't have anything bad to say about this hotel! We live about 100 miles away and didn't want to drive back after the concert.

Friendly, helpful staff. Easy check in. Got to our room but the room had a weird odor. We were quickly moved to another room and told the room would be restricted for anyone else to get cleaned. Breakfast good. Our stay included 2 young kids and 18 month old baby. Room was big enough to accommodate. Pool temperature was good.... More
