Lakefront Okoboji, especially for Fourth of July is unbeatable. Yes, some of the rooms are dated but very clean and comfortable. Staff is accommodating as well. Be sure to eat at the restaurant the food was great!

We were there for a family reunion and had five poolside rooms for a week. (That's a lot of money to be made by the Inn.) The first night there, Lyda, who said she was with management, came to us, in front of all the people poolside, and scolded us for having pizza on the picnic table. She said no... More

We had an issue with our room key, and we were quickly assisted. After maintenance determined the room was not going to work for us, they found a better room for us, and confirming our faith in the hard-working people of America! The kids loved the pools and jumping off the dock into the lake. It was also a nice... More

My family spent a weekend in June at the Inn at Okoboji for my daughter's wedding. The ceremony and reception were held at the Inn and I cannot thank the staff and management enough for the amazing, updated accommodations and the service provided for us and for our many family members and friends in attendance. I highly recommend the Inn... More

Pros- Nice layout, very nice outdoor pool, exceptional lobby area. Cons- Smelly and dated room, couldn't get a second key until the next day, curtain rod fell apart and I had to fix. It was a very overpriced room compared to a Super 8, etc. that would have been less than half the price and frankly would have been a... More

Great, family oriented, convenient location for all Okoboji has to offer. Optional pool or lakeside. Beautiful grounds, clean rooms. Very friendly and helpful staff. My preteen grandchildren and I really enjoyed our stay and would return. Highly recommended.

This was one of the biggest disappointments of our Fourth of July Holiday. Stayed at this hotel two nights and three days. Our room had a bed, a dresser, a table barely big enough for a lap-top, a loud window air conditioner and a humidifier. No closet, no water, no ice machines down the hall and $259.00 a night over...

We have been coming to The Inn for over 40 years now and have made wonderful memories. The staff (Dee and Paulette) to name just two, have been extremely helpful in assisting me with our room reservations and the wait and hospitality staff are always smiling and friendly. The amenities are very conducive for the family and there is nothing... More
