The hotel was really clean and it shows that is only a couple years old. Staff was very friendly and we had a very relaxing night. I was disappointed in the offerings for the price. The breakfast was all processed, prepackage and not many protein options. Zero fruit or vegetables. Coffee was a cheap gas station kind. Bowls and plates... More

We just stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. Overall it was a very nice hotel. However, there were a couple of things that I will mention. The lighting was very dim in our room. The breakfast was not exceptional, just average. The layout of our executive king suite was kind of odd, with the bathroom and sink just inside... More

Even though we live less than 10 miles away, we stayed here on our wedding night as it was very close to our reception location. The service was great - I wanted to drop off my overnight bag between getting my hair done and going to the ceremony location. Our room was not ready, so the lady at the front... More

First of all, for a relatively new hotel this did not meet my expectations. So this hotel is rated as a 2.5 star establishment and I'll have to agree that's about right. It is nicely decorated. That's about it. Let's see. I'll start with housekeeping. I immediately noticed that the dresser and desk were dusty--these dark furnishings will show it... More

Stayed over night prior to an early meeting in the area. Very clean and staff was very friendly and accomodating. Woke up to coffee brewing and a nice breakfast waiting for the guest. Easy travel distance to any where in the area. Quiet and bed was awesome. Enjoyed the stay very much.

This is our second year and the service and hospitality are great. We woud all recomend it to all of our friends. We are coming back this year again. August/Sept. 2014. Our group of eight couples stay every Labor Day weekend and enjoy golf at the area courses which we also highly recomend.

Completed a three day/two night stay in the Okoboji area for Winter Games and our Engagement Party. Superior custom service (they graciously accommodated our request to check in early) so we could unpack and get prepared for an event. Staff is very friendly, appreciative of customers and helpful - always remembered us by name and asked if they could help... More

I agree that the staff is great and the rooms are clean. However, the last two times I stayed there, the TVs could only access a few channels and none of them were the local networks. CBS, NBC and ABC were not available and although the staff assured me there had been complaints at other times, the issue had not... More

I stayed here 2-3 times a month for a year on business. It was always clean, quiet, and very comfortable. The staff was especially helpful and friendly. They often gave me great restaurant suggestions and good tips on the area for an out of towner. It is located very near several restuarants but away from noisy touristy spots. All the... More

Spent 2 nights just before Christmas at this hotel. The title says it all, nothing really fancy but nicely decorated and modern. Comfortable beds, everything clean and new. Staff very friendly and helpful. NOTE that this hotel has 2 floors but no elevator so if you can't carry your luggage up the steps you should request a ground floor room.... More
