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

I spent a wonderful month here in July 2008. Staff was fantastic. Pool area was awesome. Room clean and super comfortable. I was just about to book another stay but after reading these reviews ill be going elsewhere. What happened?

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!

We stayed there last winter and were SCOLDED by the desk boy, Michael when we attempted to help ourselves to a bagel and a piece of bread for a scant breakfast before work one day, because " breakfast does not start til 6." Little did he care that we had to be to work before 5. Funny thing was he... More

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

Pool closed--disappointing and yet charged full price. Back outside door was taped to stay unlocked--did not feel secure. I recommend looking to stay elsewhere if visiting Storm Lake. The location is convenient but that is the only plus.
