The staff at this Country Inn were very nice. The room, not so much. I really don't think the bathroom was cleaned prior to my check in. The toilet bowl was disgusting. I also don't think the room had been dusted as I could write my name on some of the furniture. Additionally, although the bed linen was clean, it... More

We have stayed at this particular motel several times when we have visited Fort Dodge. Holly, the Manager, has always been SO helpful and accomodating. There is a pool which, we have NOT used plus a hotub. It truly is our Home Away from Home!!

We were in town to visit with family; the rooms were nice, large, and clean. There is a comfortable seating area in the lobby which was handy when waiting for family to come pick us up. The breakfast was good and the breakfast room not too crowded. It's better than other places we've stayed in Fort Dodge, but more expensive,... More

Stayed here for one night and the rooms were big and clean. Clean building overall. Service was pleasant and the hotel was pretty quiet for being busy. Ft. Dodge is a small town, so the location was as good as any there.

We stayed here for two nights while in town for a funeral. Our extended family booked three rooms and were were looking forward to relaxing at the pool on our final night. We arrived to find the pool packed with people, coolers and lawn chairs at what appeared to be a child's birthday party. After inquiring at the front desk... More

First time here on a business trip. Rooms were comfortable, warm, and clean. Breakfast was good. The staff were courteous and prompt. I usually stay in Hilton's and Marriott chains and was pleasantly surprised with this country gem. Already booked here again for my return, this time for a 2 month stay.

The staff at Country Inn always make us feel very welcome. There's nothing like a cozy lobby, sincerely friendly smiles and helpful local advice to make a stay enjoyable. Leanna, Holly, and Jason make a great desk team. Each room was clean and neat. Refrigerators, microwaves, and fast wi fi are welcome perks, and the pool is beautiful.
