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

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
