Amenities may be dated but the friendly, family atmosphere, the clean rooms and the affordable price make it the best place in town. I was there for ten days and I never had a single complaint. They have some rooms available with a fridge and a microwave. Government rates are welcome. Even the mattresses are good!

First time staying at this location and was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are clean and the owners are very helpful and friendly. Stayed during the RAGBRAI event and was close to all the action. Would stay here again if ever in the area.

I stayed here two nights during the week of July 6 for work (as a state employee). The room was clean and comfortable, the host/owner was welcoming. The location (across the street from Kings Pointe) is good if you want to walk around the lake. This motel fits into our state employee budget and we appreciate having nice places to... More

The light house inn in Storm Lake is a great place to stay. Rates are reasonable, rooms are clean, beds were very comfortable. Has a nice place to sit and visit with family and friends around a fire pit. The proprietor/manager and staff were very friendly. And it is right across the road from a water park! What more can...

Storm Lake Iowa - beautiful scenery and Lighthouse Inn the perfect spot to stay. Clean rooms, close to everything you'd want to do there. Literally right across the street from the water park so the kids could get there easy. Rooms - clean! The owner is a great guy who literally goes out of his way to ensure you have... More

I was traveling to Storm Lake for a party and was only going to stay over nite and the price at the motel/waterpark was over $200.00 and I had no one in my party but me and that is to much for a couple of hours in the room. Went to the Lighthouse Inn across the street and could not... More

Nostalgic décor sets this motel apart from the rest, from antique style furniture to an old-fashioned TV set. There was a desk with a mirror over it, a fluorescent light to read by over one side of an oversized bed, a counter and a lazy boy chair. Venetian blinds cover each of the three windows and ultra suede bedspread and... More

Not a brand new hotel or a big name hotel. Its an older hotel, but is very clean inside, and very cheap reasonable rates. The owner is very nice, all the rooms are on the ground floor. Perfect location right across the street from the waterpark.

My four granddaughters and I stayed at the Lighthouse Inn and had a great time. The owners were very friendly, delivering us muffins each morning and the last day popsicles. My granddaughters loved the opportunity to shoot hoops and play on the extra bikes. Our room was large with three beds and plenty of space for lots of girls. The... More
