This hotel should be the model for how to restore grand old hotels! Accommodations are not only charming, but also extraordinarily comfortable. The staff is courteous attentive and most helpful. The restaurant is also superb. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Melissa Foley at the Hotel Winneshiek made our stay comfortable and pleasant. Melissa worked hard before our trip to accommodate our family's request for a room with double queens when the hotel was sold out during wedding season. Our room was comfortable and large. Free WiFi. The hotel is beautiful and great location within walking distance to everything. The chocolate... More

I stayed here during the week for a work conference, and had a great experience. The staff are super friendly and helpful, the rooms were very comfortable, and everything was exceedingly clean. I slept like a log each night - my room was dark and quiet, and the mattress was spectacular. Decorah is a lovely town - you should definitely... More

Customer service = Outstanding! Rooms are outdated but I think that is what draws people in. Rooms are clean. 1st room the WiFi would not work so the next day they moved us to a different room. Was pleased how helpful they were. Ordered room service from the downstairs restaurant - very good breakfast but had two different menus in... More

We stayed here for a long weekend getaway and had a wonderful stay. We splurged for the President's room (308) and, with smaller-town prices, it was a great value. Comfortable bed and seating area, a full bath and a half bath with lots of light from the windows and a great double tub. Without fail, staff were friendly and helpful.... More

This is a beautifully historic hotel that is perfectly situated along the many restaurants and shops on Decorah's Water Street. The hotel itself had great service from the front desk staff as well as very pleasant rooms. My hotel room reminded me of a quaint bed and breakfast. I loved my stay!

This hotel was recommended to us by one of the local folks we were visiting. It's a little tough to identify as you drive by, but go around to the back side street and there's parking and a grander entrance. The restaurant is worth staying in for and they offer some music talent as few nights per month. Nice treat.

We just spent one night at the hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and very pleasant. Our room was very clean with no moldy smell that some older hotels can get. We did like being right downtown so that we could just walk to all the shops and resteraunts. And there is many very good one.

So gorgeous! Staff was so very helpful. Unfortunately the tv didn't work.....but the staff from front desk came to the room to try & get it working. The room was clean & comfortable. Restaurant and lounge on site is amazing! Live music in the lobby was wonderful. Would stay here again without hesitation!
