Sheldon was our first stop on RAGBRAI, the bicycle ride across Iowa. The rooms for our families were clean and spacious. It was a little pricey, but we think that was because of how many people were looking for rooms at the time. We enjoyed a good breakfast and kind conversation. We only stayed one night, but we would stay... More

Sheldon IA is quite a way from home - but this friendly, clean oasis makes it seem so much closer! This is my home away from home in Sheldon. There are a couple places to eat within walking distance and a nice little steak house in town.

Management of this hotel is superb! Very friendly and helpful. I used to stay here every month when I traveled for business. It's just like home to me! Excellent breakfast bar. If you have kids, this property has a very large swimming pool. I would recommend this property to everyone.

This newer hotel is on the outskirts of Sheldon, close to State Route 60. There are a gas station, a McDonalds, a Chinese restaurant, and a terrible Mexican restaurant nearby but otherwise you need a car to go anywhere. The rooms are clean and have a fridge and a microwave. Windows open. Room was clean and the bed was comfortable.... More

Not many places to stay in northwest Iowa but this one was perfect. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. We have stayed in many places but this one by far is one of the best! Larger indoor pool than most, breakfast was nice and plenty of items to pick from and the cinnamon rolls were the best!!

It's a newer Holiday Inn Express with nice rooms with good features. The rooms are quiet.. did I say .. QUIET. Every time we stay the place is mobbed and full - but we... More
