We stayed one night in the Boulders Inn Okoboji and it was absolutely great. Room was awesome, lobby was awesome and staff was very professional. Definitely will stay again! And the three teenager age girls I had with me loved the breakfast which stayed up past the time schedule which was nice.

The Boulders Inn & Suites in Okoboji was a great place to stay with comfortable beds, high quality decor and friendly staff. My daughter booked the room for my grandchildren and me so when she asked where I'd like to stay - I said Boulders of course. I've stayed in Boulders' other properties around the state and would not hesitate... More

Very nice, clean place. It is new and contemporary and very nicely decorated. The price was great compared to similar establishments in the area .There is not a pool and they are not on the lakes, so if you just need sleeping accommodations this is perfect! The breakfast is lacking fresh fruit, but otherwise it has the basics.

This was an awesome place to stay. One of the best in the area. We have been going to the lakes for years and this is by far one of the best to stay,,,,clean, friendly, Staff was very accommodating. Parking was tight with our boat but otherwise it was very nice for the money. A/c worked well,,,,plenty of hot water,... More

Most of the reviewers here have it right, great staff, clean rooms and a nice size fridge for beverages and snacks. The rooms are on the small side and have poor lighting in the sleeping area but the bathrooms are clean and bright. Our family spent 2nights and 3 days here. Actually, we arrived at our room around 10:30pm to... More

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.
