I stayed here recently while traveling on business. I had never heard of this chain of hotels and booked randomly based on a list of recommended hotels from the conference I was attending. Upon checking in I was informed that I had been upgraded to a jacuzzi suite, no charge. I was given room 53, Wilderness Edge, and it was... More

We stay at Stoney Creek Hotels whenever possible, most often in Des Moines, Iowa. The staff has always been very nice, professional and knowledgable. The rooms are fantastic - roomy, clean, comfortable beds and nicely decorated. The free breakfast is good, with lots of hot and cold choices. We choose Stoney Creek when it's available because we can always know... More

Our room was large and the bathroom was a bit tight, but very nice. Breakfast was alright. Nothing to write home about. Would highly... More

I loved the looks of this hotel. It was the perfect amount of rustic and our room was huge. We were on the second floor, room 202 just off the lounge area. It was secluded with only one room next to it. The pool was great but a little small. It's the first true indoor/outdoor pool I've ever seen. There... More

We have stayed here several times to get away and relax. We enjoyed the indoor/outdoor pool with our son several times. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious with lots of things to choose from. It is conveniently located off the interstate with plenty of restaurants nearby. We went across the street and enjoyed a movie...
