Was just about to book a return stay when I read the reviews here. What happened? I loved the pool but it seems like it's been closed for years. The staff was so nice and rooms very clean. What a shame. Guess I'll be booking somewhere else.

Horrible experience at this hotel! Ended up staying at a different hotel. We got stuck paying for 2 rooms for two nights for our family reunion because the reservation was made with a 3rd party. We chose Storm Lake as a central location as we come from different areas of Iowa and MN. We were unfamiliar with the hotel and... More

On Friday August 21, 2015 my daughters and I went to Storm Lake for a wedding. One of the hotels the bride picked was Buena Vista Inn and Suites (she admits she didn't really look at the hotel). Upon arrival, there were notes on every door "Please Holdl On to Door." We did as it is on the very outskirts... More

What an eye sore... pool has been down for a year.... rain gutter hanging down outside of the window.... the service was just terrible and snotty to boot. The refrigerator was just packed with ice the door would barely shut and of course would not keep anything cold. I would never stay here again.... just saying

The pool has been closed for over a year, and many internet sites wrongly claimed it was open. Substandard would be an improvement. Highlights include: access doors unlocked, haphazard staff, darkly lit rooms, non working switches, bad coffee, pitiful breakfast, and there is no planned date for reopening the pool. You would be better off pitching a tent in the... More

Let me first say I've stayed at this property back when it was an Amerihost Inn and through the years that it was Baymont. How things change. Their website shows a rate of $99, called them directly to make the reservation and they said it was $109, plus tax and they did not accept any discounts we had, so $109... More

Rude staff! Rude owner- yes I had a conversation with him over the phone! Stains all over the floor, furniture and bedding. Had a room with a hot tub. Tried to use the hot tub and had water running down from the ceiling!

Reservations (for 2 rooms with king beds) were made 2 days prior to planned stay at hotel, however, upon arrival the reservations weren't the same as confirmed when making the reservation. We were told they only had 1 room with a king bed and 1 room with double beds. This was very inconvenient. Also upon arrival, the rooms weren't very... More
