We enjoyed our stay at the Arrowwood Resort. The room was clean and comfortable and our stay included a free breakfast. It is not on the lake but everything is close. I prefer a place on the lake but for a last minute stay this was a good choice.

First and foremost, this place does not lock any of the outside doors. Anyone can get it. It's funny, you need a room key to access the inside pool but not any of the exterior doors. The workout room had 2 treadmills, one was broken, the entire week we were there. You can totally tell they make their money on... More

The rooms are outdated, the sinks don't drain and there are very few towels in the smelly rooms. The staff was so, so. We had a family reunion and had some issues with where they were located. Six rooms were in one wing and one room was across the hotel in an entirely different wing. It looks like they made... More

When you walk in the accessible room the first thing you notice is the BO smell. The toilet was askew turned towards the tub and rocks when you sit on it. The A/C only works on 60 degrees. If you turn it to 61 or higher it shuts off. The hallways are a lovely shade of Brady Bunch green with... More

Very spread put and not accessible. Poor breakfast and out dated rooms. Check out was at 11, and our room keys were shut off by 9:30. Funky smell in hallways and housekeeping staff was unprofessional. Very disappointed - I expected a lot more at this price point.

My family was traveling from Minnesota back to Nebraska and we decided to stop and spend the night in Okoboji. With it being Summer and Okoboji being a huge summer attraction, there were no hotels available. The arrowwood had one room left, so we stayed there. The lobby was very nice and with the resort being on a golf course... More

I stayed here overnight, I ended up checking in really late and was given a suite on the first floor. My room was really big, but the decor was really dated. Everything was very old and the heater was very noisy. The room was decently clean though. The gym facilities were very limited and not in great shape--the treadmill I... More

I stayed at the Arrowwood resort and convention center to attend a wedding recently. When we checked in the room there was a strong odor of cigarette smoke, even though the hotel was smoke free. We called the front desk and they told us that the hotel was smoke free, but didn't offer a change of room. We also had... More

I have stayed at this property numerous times in the past. Most recently, it was for a one-night visit to the area. I live nearby but was in the area to see friends who live there and did not want to drive back home after seeing them. Their place was crowded, so I offered to stay in a motel. My... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here this last weekend for a weekend getaway from our hometown. We planned on checking in and then going out to the bars near Arnolds Park. Check in was fast and great, the room was on bottom floor with a sliding door, very spacious. Had a mini fridge, etc. We called a Taxi to pick... More
