We had a fantastic family weekend traveling to Mason City to stay at the Historic Park Inn. The hotel has been beautifully restored and the staff is SO friendly, professional and helpful. The rooms are small, but that's just how they were built back then. I highly recommend the 1910 grill at the hotel, the staff didn't bat an eye... More

Be sure to take the tour of the hotel and adjoining bank. The details and design are just remarkable. The hotel itself is very nice, clean, comfortable. The 1910 Lounge is an excellent restaurant. If you have any interest in historic buildings or architectural designs, this should be on your list. The only nit are the alarm clocks from hell.... More

My girlfriend and I have been taking Frank Lloyd Wright road trips for several years now. We have seen and toured many of his "houses", and have had the good fortune to stay overnight at a few. Given the opportunity to spend a few nights at the only Frank Lloyd Wright designed hotel still in existence, joined by another couple,... More

This hotel is a gem for a small town. Not only is it a magnificent restoration of a hundred year old hotel, but it has all the modern conveniences possible. We took the tour of the hotel and it was well worth the time. It gave us a further appreciation of Frank Lloyd Wright's genius, and it complemented our tour... More

It is close to everything in Mason City. All the people are very friendly and the rooms are great. The lighting in the rooms is very modern for being in a 1910 Hotel! It was close to shopping restraunts and bar, so didn't drive only walked.

The history of the hotel is well documented, the room was great and the lobby and other public areas of the hotel are fun to explore. The staff at the front desk was very attentive and helpful. We took the self guided tour of the hotel and wish we would have signed up for the guided version.

This is a Frank Lloyd Wright hotel and his architecture is obvious. There are lots of nooks and crannies and we had trouble finding the breakfast room as it was on the 2nd floor. The lobby shows right away the era of this property. The staff was helpful and I was directed to their private parking area. The breakfast is... More

My son and I stayed here while settling him into a local college. The price is more than the local chain hotels but worth every dime. The hotel provides a written, self guided tour if you are there when a docent led tour is unavailable. The self guided tour was perfect for acquainting us to the FLW features. The staff... More

Great place to stay for a weekend getaway. Very unique and inviting building. Great restaurant. Variety of low impact things within walking distance of the hotel - easy walk to the Glen Rock & Rock Crest neighborhood and the art museum.

We spent only one night at this hotel, but what a glorious experience to stay in the only remaining hotel in the the world by Frank Lloyd Wright! The hotel is a beautiful example of Wright's late Prairie Style with lovely furnishings. We were up-graded to a large room overlooking the park, but I'm quite sure that even without such... More
