I stay here often. It is across the street from a terrific casino. The hotel is always clean and very comfortable. There is a gym, a pool, and a nicely tended to breakfast in the lobby.

We had to stay here due to a blizzard on our way to MN. Staff was very helpful and patient with the interstate closing and influx of people trying to book a room. The rooms were beautiful and clean. The food was typical hotel food. I would definitely stay here again.

I was not planning on spending the night but I found myself in the midst of a blizzard and it was too scary to try to go farther north with white out conditions.

My front desk experience at check was exceptional Drew and Ashley, made me feel welcome. They recommend an excellent local restaurant. They even asked for my feedback on the restaurant when I came back for dinner. They understand service. After my great check-in experience I expected the same experience when I was leaving. The front desk person in the morning... More

Recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express and was extremely satisfied. The common areas and the rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, the rooms were quiet and I got a fair rate for a Thursday night. I definitely recommend staying here.

We checked in at about 10:30 at night. Stood at the desk waiting while staff talked in the back and their children (or just random children) cavorted in the lobby. At breakfast we first tried the pancake machine - staff told us it wasn't working, as it was out of batter. So we went for a cinnamon roll. None there,... More

We stayed here for two nights while visiting the Winnebago factory in nearby Forest City. We really enjoyed our stay. Our room was spacious and clean. The bathroom was immaculate. In fact, our room was an exact copy of the room that we stayed in at a Sleep Inn hotel in Kansas a few years ago. The layout, furniture, and... More

It started with a problem in reservations no fault of the Northwood location . The front desk staff was aware of the problem we had had and were very apologetic . Our stay and the breakfast were AWESOME . Thanks for reassuring my faith that there still is customer service out there.
