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).

The hotel was very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Also used the conference room for a family get together and the hotel staff was very accommodating. Warm breakfast which most only have donuts cereals etc. Was pleased the hotel offered proteins and healthy choices. Definitely recommend.

Very clean, sparkly new hotel. King suite was quite large and roomy. Staff were very friendly and accommodating depending on who was on at the time. Some staff are friendlier than others but that is to be expected anywhere.
