We have stayed here in the past to pheasant hunt in Iowa. Clean rooms, comfortable atmosphere and affordable pricing is why we return yearly. This stay was no different, except there was new owners. They are very welcoming and accommodating to needs. Keeping the hotel dog friendly is a major positive. They were beginning revamp some rooms and looking at... More

The motel is older but is very clean and have very nice staff. Along the highway and is a little noisy but after around 10 traffic slows down. Tv's could be a little larger but that's just me. I would stay here again.

Older lodge like motel. It recently has new owners who were incredibly accommodating. Great place for a. Great price! The location is a little out of the way, but its not too far away from the Okoboji fun.

This place is a good value for what you get. Although it is a bit old and could use a face-lift, the place is rather decent. It's not really close to anything, though. You definitely need a car to get around town, and to the lake. But I can't say this place is a bad place to stay. Pretty decent!

Polaris Industries Victory and Indian line of motor cycles are build in Spirit Lake Iowa. Went out to visit the factory with 29 other Indian cycle riders. Other places in town started at 160.00 a night, a Super 8 wanted 200.00 Too much for a place to sleep over night. The Northland Inn is an older Motel type establishment, but... More

We were in the Lake Okoboji area for a company party last weekend. Rather than spend $160-200 per night, we stayed at Northland Inn for less than half the price. The room did have that smell, but aside from that it was fine for a short stay. The coffee was great. We didn't check in until 8:30 p.m., but the... More

We've been going to the lake for years and stay at my folks' timeshare, but always feel like we want some "couples" time to do some things alone when that week is up (plus a longer stay at the lake is always a plus!) A great value for the money, a fun little picnic area out back when you don't... More

We have stayed at this hotel the last 3yrs for the Victory Rally, always been clean, the owners have gone out of the way to make our stay great, the rooms have always been clean and comfy. Looking forward to staying again this Aug.

This place is very easy to find. Price is decent for this time of year in this location, but any other place, it would be ridiculous. The room smelled like wet dog. I carry a concentrated room spray in my car and sprayed it everywhere and the smell never went away. This place needs some TLC. They really need to... More
