“Clean and friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

We have stayed here before but I forgot to write a review. I just wanted to say that the last time we stayed earlier this year the one thing that was terrible is that the bed frames in our room stuck out 3 inches. Our entire family had near falls and nicks on our shins. We informed the front desk, maybe they've fixed it. I think we stayed in room 107.

This time the bed frames were where they were supposed to be! We stayed in a suite. It was spacious and very clean. The beds are comfortable and we highly prize a comfortable bed. This is clearly the place to stay when in Mason City especially with children.

We have begun to skip the breakfasts at Holiday inns though. I think that the chain as a whole needs to reevaluate the quality of their food.

Room Tip: Avoid room 107 unless they have fixed the bed frames.

Modern, clean, excellent staff. Definite stay again, without question. Stayed on Nov 9th, front desk help was excellent, room rate for standard dbl queen was $89 at the time. Rooms very clean, attention to detail was noticeable.

We stayed on Oct. 18th, 2012. I booked 20 some rooms for our bus trip through Iowa. The front dest was organized when we arrived and so kind to us. The room were very very clean. Our check out was great and easy. Would recommend staying there again to anyone. There breakfast was hot and wonderful. Everyone on the bus was pleased with the hotel.

Room Tip: All the rooms were great!!!

If you are looking for a clean, friendly, and comfortable place, this is it. Not sure when they opened, but it seemed like it wasn't much before we stayed there. The place is immaculate with nice sized rooms. I hadn't stayed at a Holiday Inn property in a while, so I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and comfort of the bed. Seemed very quiet the nights we stayed -- we never heard anyone else.

It has a "slightly above average" breakfast, beside the typical toast and muffins, there were a few hot items and fruit. (Hey, for free, who's to complain?) There are plenty of other restaurants nearby (one on the other side of the parking lot.), if you want something else. We did not use the pool, so I can’t comment on that.

My only slight knock, might be that the price seemed a tad high for a basic (albeit a nice) hotel in Mason City, however it was July and all the hotels seemed higher-priced than I expected. That may just be lack of competition or the season. I would still certainly stay there again if the need arises.

Room Tip: Curtains are fairly opaque, but if you are not a morning person, you might consider a west-facing ro...

Cleanest hotel, with the highest attention to detail that I have seen. I am in a suite for the next two weeks. Ample space, tons of outlets, incredible hotel layout, I COULD NOT be more impressed.

Great fitness center, solid breakfast for a free continental, and (from what I could see) a very nice pool area.

The only small complaint is the internet speed (</= 1 Mbs), but fast enough for streaming Netflix via laptop, so it didn't turn into a major inconvenience.

I have stayed at a lot of hotels, and a ton of Holiday Inns, and I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone.

Room Tip: I highly recommend the suite!

Must be a brand new property. The facility was clean and very well taken care of. Rooms were large and did a good job of keeping the noise out. Kids loved the pool that was warm and clean. Ruby Tuesdays is across the parking lot for a cocktail and a good meal. The breakfast offering was good, could have used more seating. Staff was friendly and attentive. We would certainly stay there again.

My husband and I spent 6 days at the HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS & SUITES a couple of weeks ago.This hotel is 1 of the BEST hotels we have ever stayed at.The staff was always friendly and helpful.The free breakfasts were more then we expected since most hotels only have a continental breakfast.Having a lot of choices to pick from was a real treat.The kitchen staff always made sure we had plenty to eat.YUM YUM Our room looked and smelled brand new, even though i was told that the hotel was over a year old.The people at the front desk was also very friendly, speaking to us as we left or entered the hotel .They would ask if we needed anything or if we had any problems plz let them know. Hope to stay there again KUDOS TO ALL
