5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was definitely worth the easy 5 minute drive from I-35. Mason City is about half way between Des Moines and the Twin Cities. The room was great, just as other reviewers have pointed out, ours was fresh, quiet, clean, and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. There are restaurants just outside the hotel, including a highly rated Mexican... More

In August 2014 we stayed in the Mason City, Iowa Holiday Inn Express and Suites for two nights. This is new hotel and it's nicely designed. The rooms are extremely spacious as are the bathrooms. And the room had a small refrigerator and microwave plus a small bar area with sink which is a handy amenity. The public spaces are... More

This is one of the best HIE I've stayed at. I was on the top floor, in a roomy suite, even with 2 beds. My phone was noisy so they replaced it. They had me on the next to top floor & we're a bit hesitant to move me since they were full, but they swapped me. It's right next... More

This hotel was awesome! Common areas and guest rooms were very clean. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. Breakfast area was well maintained and the food was good. We would definitely stay here in the future.

This hotel was very clean and the rooms (especially the bathrooms) were very large. The bathroom was well stocked with towels. The complimentary breakfast was good - premade cheese omelets, sausage, pancakes, cinnamon rolls etc - and was kept well stocked. All in all a very nice stay and would definitely recommend! Also, there is a Ruby Tuesdays right across... More

Very Clean. I had read the hotel was remodeled a couple years ago and it does look good. It is well maintended and clean. I am a clean fanatic so that is very important to me. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is the sound proofing is pretty bad. I know that is probably to be expected in... More

Stayed here two years ago with family & friends on our way to South Dakota from Indiana. We are headed west again & choose to stay at HIE due to our positive experience last time. The hotel is clean & well maintained, above average breakfast. Located next to a Ruby Tuesdays.

Clean rooms, good working air, friendly staff. We were there two nights to visit with family and were impressed with the level of service. Breakfast was well laid out and it was a quiet convenient ace to stay on the main road. The bed was very comfortable as we're the pillows.

Was in Mason City for business and stayed here for the first time. I was greeted as an IHC Club member and given my choice of perks. Check in was quick and my room was clean and comfortable. My room was quiet and I slept well. This hotel adjoins a Ruby Tuesday but there are plenty of other dining options... More

Stayed April 2014 What you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. Room was clean and comfortable. Microwave and fridge. Breakfast - a good choice - yogurts, pancakes, muffins etc and, of course, cinnamon rolls. No complaints. Hotel is a short drive into the city but is close to shops and restaurants (Ruby Tuesday next door).
