Showed up here in the work truck and was greeted by one of the owners. He was very friendly and already had a room set aside for me. Room isn't too bad. Has a flat screen and pretty clean. The A/C blows cold and the bed is comfortable. Definitely would not mind staying here again in the future.

We stayed there with our family reunion and I felt right at home. The owner is very friendly, gracious, and informative. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean. The rate was acceptable. There is a huge water park across the street as well as a miniature golf course. Very nice attractive town. We would like to go back... More

This has got to be one of the best kept secrets in Storm Lake! I just returned from spending Labor Day weekend at this hotel and it was AWESOME!!!! The owner ---Thayne, was wonderful to work with! When I called to make the reservation they only had one night available so we took a room on that night. I was... More

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
