The Inn at Okoboji is a treasure. The location is directly on the water with many great views. There is a dock for swimming and boating, a lakefront walking path, nice pool, restaurant & bar. It is older but full of charm. Our room comfortably slept 4. We enjoyed our stay and would return again.

The people running the resort were very nice. I do feel (we stayed in an older room) they need to do a real deep clean. I stayed in Marco Island Florida for the same price I guess I expected really clean not perfect. It was a good location to go boating and to the park and out to eat. I... More

My brother got married at The Inn a few weekends ago. My family and I enjoyed spending the weekend on the shores of West Lake Okoboji. The wedding was fantastic - great food, bar, & service. The hotel staff was accommodating and friendly. Poolside brunch was great! We even enjoyed an All American Lakefront BBQ on 4th of July. The... More

Spent three nights for a family vacation. One of the original resorts on the lake but room was tidy and nice. Quality of king bed was good. Any shortcoming due to the age of the property is more than compensated for by the quality of the staff. Extremely nice and helpful from front desk to bar to restaurant.

We were going to be in the Okoboji area for a family reunion and began looking for accommodations 7 weeks prior. Most hotels/resorts were sold out so I called the Inn. I made numerous calls before talking to a reservationist. I keep getting rerouted back to the original voice message saying press 1 for reservations. When I did finally talk... More

I enjoyed my stay. Staff were always helpful. The hotel is an older, lakeside resort so expect older furnishings and little homemade quirks. I personally like getting out of the corporate world but some might find these quirks less interesting. The indoor pool had thousands of little bugs floating on the surface because it hadn't been skimmed in the morning.... More

Our family stayed here for 4 nights for a little "End of School Year" vacation. We had a pool side suite. The two rooms were nice as the kids had their own sleeping area. We didn't know what to expect as there are good and bad reviews on the net. We were pleasantly surprised. Friendly staff, indoor and outdoor pool,... More

Our company took eighty plus people to the Inn in August. It had been quite a few years since our last visit to the Inn. The Inn is definitely a family destination in the Okoboji area and many of the rooms are built with that in mind. From a facility standpoint, nothing had changed since our last visit. The bathrooms... More
