We have stayed at this hotel many times, but this time it had been quite a few months since we had been there. Quick drive down from MN for the husband to play craps (no craps in MN) and to catch Sha Na Na at the Diamond Jo. It is so convenient as the Inn is attached to the Diamond... More

We have used this hotel roughly 10 times... The hotel is connected to the casino (PLUS!) - the hotel is a very clean, neat hotel. It caters to families also... The pool area is great! The only issue is the morning breakfast.... The food is not as fresh as other Country Inn & Suites we've stayed at...the selection is also... More

If you are going to gamble or enjoy the live entertainment at the casino there are only two hotels to stay at, this one which is attached and VERY convenient or the Holiday Inn Express across the parking lot/street. Stayed here because it was attached to the casino and their rates were about $10-$20 less than HIE. Easy, fast check-in.... More

Had stayed here at this place to celebrate a friends birthday. It's very convenient for being connected to the casino. Check-in was a breeze, nice and fast. I believe Nicole (I think that was her name) was the one who had helped me, and she was very accomodating. The room itself was nice. Very clean bathroom, beds were great. The... More

My wife and two sisters stayed here on a trip to Iowa. When I made the reservation, I was offered the Wine Special. The room rate was $119.00 plus a free bottle of wine. Three beds, a bottle of wine all for the low price of $119.00. The room was also nice. Unfortunately, they lost money at the casino next... More

Given that this is part of a casino complex, the room charge is too high. The rooms are average to above average. Front desk clerks are not particularly friendly, and frankly, very unattractive (just sayin' you know?). Breakfast room was crowded and the prepared food (eggs) were wretched. It is so easy to scramble eggs, there just is no excuse... More
