“Beautiful, on the golf course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

The Best in Denison, Iowa. There is not a lot of selections for lodging. I stayed here six nights. I would highly recommend it, make reservations as early as possible as it books up fast.

Room Tip: Lower level is right off the golf course

Was in Iowa for business @ Gomaco in Idagrove. We had to drive half an hour each way from the hotel to Idagrove but it was definitely worth it. The rooms are clean,comfortable beds and good food @ the restaurant. The staff was very friendly and made you feel very welcome.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2011

We needed to conduct some business near here and I was a bit worried that there wouldn't be any well appointed options. Then we found this place and immediately booked a room with them. We are glad we did. The property and rooms are very nice and clean.
We stayed in the family suite and the one thing I have to say is that it was very dark. There is no ceiling light just lamps and only windows on the one end. Even the light at the vanity was dismal. I believe that there was another review that mentioned that.
The family suite is a great option if your kids have a tendency to be kids since it dosen't much come into contact with other guest rooms.

We stayed here for a wedding that was held on the property. Our room was very nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. We were on the lower level with a door that walked right onto the golf course. The beds were one of the most comfortable beds we have slept in in recent memory. Breakfast included waffles, biscuts and gravy and other cold breakfast items. We really enjoyed our stay and wished we had brought our golf clubs to walk on to the course with. Definitely recommend this hotel!

Although we live in the area, we have stayed at the Boulders Inn and Suites a few times, have recommended it to our friends, and have purchased gift certificates for lived ones. The property never disappoints! The rooms are clean and very comfortable (dare I say the nicest bed EVER!), the atmosphere is classy but relaxed, next to a wonderful Grille (and guests can utilize the conference center elevator as well to make the jaunt a bit easier), and the staff is so personable and accommodating! Denison is fortunate to have such a fine hotel and we look forward to the next event and opportunity to stay again!

I recently came across this hotel when I was traveling through on business. I could not have been happier! It had all of the things I look for in a hotel....comfortable beds, clean rooms, friendly staff, wireless, breakfast, bar and grille on site & the spectacular views of the golf course was a perk. Will be staying here again real soon!

Positive: Clean, spacious, good view on golf course side. Comfortable beds. Priced about right. It's better than most of what else is available in the area.

Negative: Dark colors on walls w/ much too inadequate and poor lighting. No properly lighted place to apply make-up, which most women staying here would choose to do. Cheap with the toiletries; no conditioner is provided or available on request, and the cheap shampoo alone only makes hair more difficut to work with.
TV was hard to watch, as video wasn't in sync w/ audio.
No elevator or escalator to lower floor.

I would recomend this hotel with caviats.
