Have stayed here a half dozen times in the last few years. Decent breakfast. Very nice and helpful staff. Clean rooms. You might be asked to plunge your own toilet, though, and the lobby can be noisy so better to get a room down the hall.

Such a wonderful, friendly place. I've always stayed at the AmericInn in Arnolds Park. This hotel was $100.00 cheaper with the same character, friendliness, cleanliness and the 20 mile drive into Arnolds Park is no big deal. My parents live in Arnolds Park so we made the 20 miles OR LESS each day.

That is so great to hear. Thank you very much for staying with us and for your kind words. Who doesn't want $200.00 to spend in a weekend instead of having to give that to the hotel in addition to what you are already paying them. Well I guess the secret is out stay in Spencer when traveling to Okoboji... More

Front desk greeted me and made my room request happen (I wanted second floor), even though they were full for that night. Nice breakfast and very comfy beds! My son's baseball team used the pool area and they let us eat pizza in the breakfast area too, very accommodating. I would absolutely stay again!

This was my second stay here at this AmericInn. Both times it was due to a snowstorm that kept me from driving home. The room - both times - were very nice. I know - if this weather turns bad again - I will be staying here again!

It is so good to hear that we were able to provide a nice room for you when you couldn't make it home. We always have hot chocolate, hot apple cider, or the best 24 hour hot tea & coffee bar around to warm you up. Best part is it doesn't cost you any extra to grab that hot drink... More

A nice and comfortable facility. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would stay at this property again if it was not for the Holiday Inn Express across the street.. I usually stay at the Holiday Inn, but I was not aware of one being located in Spencer, IA.

I've been to this property before, years ago, and there's a brand new hotel from a different chain just across the street now. Still, I decided to go back, and I'm glad I did.

great sleeping conditions,however,tv service is unique and without instructions,whoever laid out the bathroom and vanity area didn't realize you could injure someone by opening the door when someone was at the mirror and finally we found a bottle cap from a previous resident on the floor.
