Just stayed at the resort for a week while on business in the area. The on-site restaurant , Minerva's, was so good, I ate there every night instead of going out and dealing with the cold. This was my second trip to the area and I stayed elsewhere my first trip. Arrowwood is my choice for lodging for all subsequent... More

Visiting a resort next to lakes in the winter with snow on the ground is a bit odd. The jetted pool/hot tub was under repair and after a swim in the pool I found out...no towels! Cold walk back to my room to say the least. Dinner at Minerva's (inside the resort) is great. A bit expensive but very good... More

I stayed for a work related business trip. Check was quick and easy out room was clean and comfortable. We had dinner at Minerva's which was sensational. The staff was courteous and polite and even provided a wonderful goodie bag in each room. If we did not own property in this area I would stay here when visiting the Okoboji... More

We arrived at Arrowwood very late in the night; very exhausted and ready to feed our baby and go to bed. While the check-in process was easy and Karin at the desk seemed very nice, we arrived in the room to find that there was no toilet paper. After making a trip up to the desk, we also realized that...

Very friendly check in. Minerva's was better than expected. Room was clean. Hotel does show it's age, but definitely a value for what I paid. If you are looking for a 4 star hotel, you are not paying for that. But if you want a nice room, clean and safe, I would recommend it. Suggestions... update the WiFi. Could not... More

Ideally situated to explore the golf courses and lakes. The room was large but was somewhat "tired" in appearance. An area which requires improvement is the hotel laundering service. The towels and bed linen whilst clean smelled dirty and mouldy. I assume this to be due to the mass laundering process without the use of some form of fabric freshener.... More

After check in the room was dirty, paper and other miscellaneous litter on the floor, some broken glass. A light above the hot tub was burned out.... More

Booked because of a family wedding otherwise would not have stayed there. The rooms were old, the bathrooms outdated though functional and the hallways smelled. Very sprawling. The Sunday brunch in the restaurant was a highlight though, definitely worth twice the price and good selection. Did not have time to try the pool or gym. Parking was challenging because of... More

I booked a room here for a wedding reception my friend held at this hotel over the 4th of July weekend. I booked several months in advance and received an email confirmation. Due to the high demand weekend, the room was fairly pricey. The reception itself was beautiful and the facilities were great for that and the staff running the... More

Mark, first I would like to congratulate you on your upcoming arrival! I would like to also apologize for the inconvenience that you experienced. Arrowwood does have a 5 day cancellation period in the summer and our front desk agents are required to give the cancellation policy at the time of the reservation so that this very situation does not...
