We really enjoyed the ambiance and the room. Good price. Very clean and well maintained. Good restaurant next door for dinner. Only complaint was the noise....kids running in the halls and the noise of the elevator. Too much chlorine in the pool so did not use. Small breakfast area.

Dear Brandy, While we take guest safety and security very seriously, we are very sorry the issues you mention resulted in a “middle of the road” experience for you and your family. Needless to say, that is not our goal for any guest experience and I apologize on behalf of our entire team. We hope you can return to enjoy... More

We stayed here in the Wilderness Suite for the weekend. King bed, pull out sofa, kitchenette, hot tub, court yard access to pools. Tons of room for our family of five. Only thing missing was table & chairs for eating. This place was beautiful & clean. Staff was very welcoming & friendly.

During a business trip to Iowa I stayed at the Stoney creek inn. Phenomenal place! My room was gorgeous and comfortable. Breakfast was made to my order; a veggie omelette. The pool area is both indoor and outdoor very conveniently located in the lower level of the hotel. On a rainy afternoon sitting in a covered heated pool is very... More

We were there for a wedding and we were able to check-in early and they also allowed us to check out an hour late so we didn't have to sit at the airport. This has kind of a Great Wolf Lodge feel to it, so we enjoyed the uniqueness. The desk clerk at check in seemed to be having a... More

The Cottages at Stoney Creek are very nice and clean in a great location. The staff, especially Gloria and Gina, are friendly and are sincerely interested in making the stay more enjoyable. The omelettes and waffles for breakfast along with a nice complimentary happy hour are a nice bonus. We would highly recommend for a weekend or an extended stay.... More

The Hotel is very nice overall. Check in and check out was easy and the desk clerks were very friendly. Breakfast was good and they had both hot and cold items. The Breakfast attendant was not the friendliest. Beds were comfortable and the AC worked great. The rooms were clean and presentable.

I stayed at the Stoney Creek 4 times in the last 4 months. It is such a great place to stay, whether it be in the hotel or at the cottages. Very friendly staff and very helpful. Also very clean. Gloria, at the Cottages, make the best omelets and is very nice and courteous. Zelda

Very good, nice rooms. Bar area is a little small. Certainly better than 2 stars. Beds are comfortable and the lobby is nice. Staff was helpful. I'd recommend this hotel if you have a need to stay the area. I stayed in a king, room was massive. 3 stars easy.
