Friendly staff, helpful caring and plenty of stuff to do around the area. Pool was very warm and relaxing to be in. Some places it is to cold. Breakfast was excellent and was just the right temp. The lady in the Breakfast room was very friendly and willing to help or get what anyone needed.

Hi, We went to Iowa for a visit & stayed overnight. This was a nice, clean, friendly hotel. Our son is a fan of Buddy Holly.

The people were all friendly and helpful. A great place and super location. Nice place for Class Reunions. The guest rooms clean and comfortable. The food was excellent. The exercise room needs a few more items.

Awful place. We stayed only because we got caught on the highway in a terrible thunder storm. The hotel itself smells, the layout is weird (we had to walk through a dark, narrow, low-ceilinged tunnel to get to a tiny closet-like foyer where stairs (no elevator) led us to the third floor. It was a terrible place. However, Bennigan's Restaurant... More

There is a funky mildewed smell in a lot of areas, and the hot tub (main reason I chose this hotel) was down for maintenance during my stay. Could get a much better rate booking through an online booking site than calling the desk (about $30 better). My interactions with the staff were nothing to be excited about until I... More

We stay here many times and love the pool/hot tub area. The free shuttle to the Surf is great. Location off the interstate is convenient and many fast food option near by. Love the biscuits and gravy included in the hot breakfast

Definitely stay here when you are traveling through Northern Iowa. Easy access, clean, caring staff and good food at Bennigans. Recently remodeled has made the rooms very comfortable with large TV's and new bathroom cabinets and fixtures.

Extra comfy beds, pillows not so much. Flat screen not in HD for some reason. Unable to adjust aspect ratio on TV, so trying to watch British Open all the scores and other graphics were off screen. Menu showed aspect ratio as " unavailable ". Continental breakfast was better than most.
