This is my 2nd time staying at this hotel. Both times were good stays. The rooms were clean and there was no yucky grout in the bathroom. There was a small stain on the sheets this last trip that did give me pause but it was a king bed and I didn't have to go anywhere near it. The included... More

This was a somewhat roomy room for 5. This hotel worked us a great rate on a last minute upgraded room. There was a pool that my kids used daily and vending machines for those late night munchies. Would recommend this hotel to others. Clean and well maintained.

Very nice, super clean, very quiet. We enjoyed staying here very much. The room had in-room Keurig coffee maker, nice amenities and so clean. We had 2 pillows each, one soft; one more firm. The hallway and rooms were quiet, we didn't hear other guests at all. The bathroom area has a very large vanity and a shelf underneath for... More

This is a very clean and new hotel right off the highway. There is not much rear it other than the casino but it is a great place to get some sleep. Free hot breakfast as always and great customer service. Large parking area and fuel is right across the street so I could fill up before I got back... More

My husband and I stayed here on out way to Des Moines. We chose the Holiday Inn vs The Country in since it was a tiny bit cheaper. We also like to play craps--which we did, but we were glad we chose to stay at the unattached hotel to limit our temptations of going back to the casino! Anyway! The... More

I needed a place to stay while traveling south. This location was convenient, right off the highway. It seems like the middle of nowhere but there is Diamond Jo's casino right across the street. The rooms were nice and the service was friendly and professional. The free breakfast was good, I love those cinnamon rolls. I would certainly stay here... More

We chose this hotel because our first choice, the Holiday Inn Express in Mason City, was full that night. We made a poor room choice, going for the top floor, but facing east toward the casino and gas station. Unfortunately, the noise of the diesel trucks using the frontage road for the casino and truck stop carried on all night.... More
