Stayed here because a friend was getting married in the area. This place is extremely outdated and overpriced. We paid $495 total for three nights and that is laughable for the pink bathroom, old carpet, and outdated room. AC is loud and I feel bad for the people staying below our room because the floors made a ton of noise... More

The rooms are very out dated and you can hear EVERYTHING!!! It was extremely noisy, the air conditioning was so loud right along with the humidifier in the room. Very tiny rooms and very small beds. Beds were pretty comfortable. The area around the Inn is pretty nice, the lobby and restaurant were very nice. They just need to spend... More

As a family we just made our 8th trip to the Inn at Okoboji. It is one of my all time favorite destinations. The lake and trees are absolutely gorgeous and there is something for every age whether reading a book on the dock, swimming in the outdoor pool, walking on the tree lined path, boating, or visiting Arnold's Park...

My stay at The Inn was disappointing even for one night. This room was booked for me by a group and I would not return with my own booking. The room price is way too high for what one gets. Situated on West Lake, the location and setting couldn’t be more lovely and inviting; however, the room assigned to me... More

The Inn has a peaceful lake side setting. Our room was clean, but the air conditioner in the room seemed to be pretty noisy. Our entire family went, which consisted of getting four rooms. We went to the breakfast, and it was delicious and had a very ample serving. The kids enjoyed the Mickey Mouse pancakes.

We stayed here for a family gathering so it wasn't our first choice of lodging. I was pleasantly surprised. Although the hotel is rather old and is in need of some updates to the rooms, it was an okay place to stay. We had an excellent view of the lake from our room even though we didn't have a "lakefront"... More

We made the mistake of choosing a poolside room, and the odor was otrocious....musty old carpet (we could only assume) The location is great, beautiful, on the lake, but needs large amounts of remodeling, staff was nice. For the price, it isn't worth it!!

From August 7 through August 12, 2016, My wife and I along with about 100 cheerleaders had our summer ending, season beginning camp at The Inn. There are not enough superlatives to describe the wonderful treatment we received from the staff. Digger and Dwight were sort of the "go to peeps" and were so helpful and supportive of the things...

The ONLY reason I went back to The Inn, was because the rest of the in-laws want to be on WEST lake. So your going to pay a lot of money to be on West Lake, for NOTHING of a room. Plus they got our reservations mixed up and we faced the back of another building...NOT THE LAKE!!! For goodness... More

We just returned from our family reunion hosted here in August 2016 and had a great time. We started our time by requesting a room upgrade which threw the staff for a bit of a loop as there were a few large groups at the resort. They worked hard to accommodate our specific requests and we were glad to get... More
