Not much going for this place. Continental breakfast is toast, coffee and cold cereal. They brought out 1 cinnamon roll and waffle mix when I asked, but the waffle maker was not functioning. So I went down the street for breakfast. Swimming pool is empty "until further notice". The door to get into the south side of the building has... More

I stayed here with my family. I was surprised to see pictures of a really nice pool were posted on the page, but when you walk in its "permanently closed." That was a joke, government discount was a joke, the beds were an UNCOMFORTABLE joke. Don't stay here.

Was just about to book a return stay when I read the reviews here. What happened? I loved the pool but it seems like it's been closed for years. The staff was so nice and rooms very clean. What a shame. Guess I'll be booking somewhere else.

Horrible experience at this hotel! Ended up staying at a different hotel. We got stuck paying for 2 rooms for two nights for our family reunion because the reservation was made with a 3rd party. We chose Storm Lake as a central location as we come from different areas of Iowa and MN. We were unfamiliar with the hotel and... More

What an eye sore... pool has been down for a year.... rain gutter hanging down outside of the window.... the service was just terrible and snotty to boot. The refrigerator was just packed with ice the door would barely shut and of course would not keep anything cold. I would never stay here again.... just saying

The pool has been closed for over a year, and many internet sites wrongly claimed it was open. Substandard would be an improvement. Highlights include: access doors unlocked, haphazard staff, darkly lit rooms, non working switches, bad coffee, pitiful breakfast, and there is no planned date for reopening the pool. You would be better off pitching a tent in the... More
