Purchased a 2-night stay through Living Social. The hotel website’s photos are very misleading. Negatives - This is an OLD hotel – peeling, chipping paint, carpets so loose there are folds and we were tripping on them; hardware is rusty, we had to put down our bags and run against the door with our shoulder to get it open; jagged...

When my wife made the reservations, she asked if there was a pool and hot tub. What she wasn't told was the pool was broken. It was refilled the day we arrived but too cold for anyone to swim in it. This hotel is also not very ADA friendly, with several steps down then back up to get to the... More

The whole place just feels warm and inviting from the moment you walk into the resort until the time you leave. We loved the breakfast in the mornings. Great variety of items included in the contenital breakfast everyone found something they like. Rooms were updated and larger than the average hotel rooms.

After deciding to go back to the Winter Games after not being there in more than 7yrs., I was very disappointed to find out there was a lot of price juggling after I booked my room in early December. It's not right and I'm not sure if it's legal to change the pricing of the rooms to lure people in... More

We really weren't at the hotel a lot, mainly to just sleep. The location is great, not on the lake though, so you won't be by a beach. We didn't not eat at the restaurant this time, but have in the past and it was good. The beds were comfortable, and the room was clean. So for what we needed... More

My husband and I were in Okoboji for Winter Games 2014. We decided at the last minute to get a room at Arrowwood Resort. The front desk staff was amazing at finding us a room last minute.

We had a very nice stay at the Arrowwood, which began at booking. My wife had job interviews in the area, beginning at 2 PM on our check in day. I made a request for early check in, and it was quickly accepted. We were able to check in at noon, in order for her to get ready. The rooms... More

Had a great time, all rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. We stayed in a room that overlooked the golf course and it was beautiful. We ate in the restaurant at the hotel and the service was good and the food was excellent.
