Great setting for a wedding! The Inn needs maintenance on most of it's facilities. Room prices are a bit high. The Inn was busy so folks must consider the place a reasonable value. I would say it is average for a small water front resort.

The only problem was the room that I had was a little dated. It was clean and comfy. The price was a little high but there was a bicycle show comming through town and there was not a room to be had. The breakfast was good and the service was very good. The hotel front desk people were very nice... More

My family spent a wonderful week here. The beds were so comfortable. I was very impressed with the beds and pillows. I am a snob about bed comfort. So I was very happy. The staff was so very helpful. I had to do a bit work while I was there and the staff would check in to offer me water... More

We stayed at The Inn for our family vacation weekend in July 2014. We arrived about noon hoping to get out on the lake until our rooms were ready about 5 p.m., but it was raining. The staff offered up a private deck with chairs and tables for us so we could have our boat picnic despite the poor weather.... More

Stayed at this resort for a family wedding that was hosted on site. Located on West Lake in Okoboji area. It is clear that the location on the water is what makes this place attractive as most hotels do not have view/location on the water. Bad experience began when we arrived and had dinner in the hotel restaurant. Service was... More

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.

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
