We reserved the Jacuzzi Suite, and it was wonderful! The room had a sweet tv, mini fridge, microwave, and it was very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and they even let us check in a couple hours early! The breakfast was wonderful too; they had waffles and biscuits in gravy, along with the usual bagels etc. We didn't use the wireless internet, so I don't know if it was slow or not.

Great hotel for the money, let alone one in a resort/vacation town. The rooms are very clean, the flat panel tv was a 32", and the free breakfast had a lot of options on the continental buffet area. The only thing to improve is wireless speed as it was really slow.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

We stayed here for a family reunion. Clean rooms, great breakfast, and they let us use the conference room for our family gatherings.

However, we requested a non-smoking room and when we checked in, our room definitely had a strong cigarette smell. We informed the front desk, and they said the room used to be a smoking room, but they converted them last year with new furniture/paint/carpet.

Apparently that isn't enough because it smelled awful and there were no other rooms for us to transfer to. We dealt with it, but I could see the bothering someone with allergies.

We appreciate you took the time to offer us your comments regarding your experience with us at the AmericInn of Okoboji. We are pleased to see that you found your room to be clean, enjoyed our free breakfast, and were able to take advantage of the use of our conference room for your family gatherings. I would like to apologize that you experienced a smoke odor in our recently renovated guest rooms. We are a 100% non-smoking facility. It is unfortunate if a past guest chooses to smoke in our smoke free environment. We will research this to make certain to remedy the situation, so it does not recur in the future. Thank you for choosing the AmericInn of Okoboji. We look forward to extending our hospitality to you during your future visits to Okoboji.

We stayed 2 nights at the Americain in Okoboji. The hotel is adjacent to a golf course so it was very quiet and conveniently located between all of the activities and sights we wanted to see. The room was clean, the staff pleasant and the "make your own" waffle breakfast a nice treat. I would definately go back here again. The one and only negative I can think of is that the 2 story hotel does not have an elevator. A bit of an effort to pull your luggage up a flight of stairs.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the golf course. If stairs are an issue get a room on the 1st floor. No elevator.

We are happy to hear that you found your accommodations to be clean and quiet. We agree that our central location is excellent and allows you to be only minutes from all Okoboji attractions.

Thank you again for your comments and we look forward to welcoming you back to Okoboji on your future visits!
