The Lodge Resort Hotel
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Forest City
Reviewed February 23, 2012

We stayed there for my wifes cousins wedding. It is a very neat hotel, and we loved the setting, and our own little porch out back. I had a nice breakfast in the morning, and enjoyed the corned beef hash.

I wasn't real crazy about the bathroom doors though

I could not have picked a better venue to hold my June wedding at! The staff and management have been excellent to work with and a GREAT help! They really worked with my budget and made me feel like a million dollar bride!! The facility is rustic, romantic, and very cozy for any kind of gathering! Even though this facility has been through many changes and multiple owners/management, this place is worth giving a chance! They were even so kind to throw a suite as a wedding gift! VERY CARING AND VERY KIND STAFF!

Room Tip: The site offers photos of every room which is great!

The Lodge is a great place to get away with a beautiful view of the Winnebago River. They have groomed cross country ski trails just outside the front door. The rates are reasonable with a restaurant on site so you do not need to leave the building.

The hotel has everything a person could possibly want, good food, quiet location, beautiful grounds and friendly staff. This place is a must if you are visiting in the Forest City area.

Having experienced The Lodge when it was at it's peak and when , a few years ago at it's worst, I can say that it is now near where it was at the top. If not a 4 star, it's not for lack of effort. We found our stay and dinner to be great. Living down a poor manager can be a daunting task, more so in a small market. We will be sure and eat at The Lodge next trip to Winnebago and hopefully we won't need to stay because of lengthy repairs. Al and Sal Parr North Port, Fl.

Room Tip: call early and all rooms are quiet.

This was our first visit to The Lodge. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The hotel and restaurant staff were exceptionally nice and the food was excellent and value priced. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay in the area.

The Lodge is located in the north central Iowa Corn Belt so don't come here with great sightseeing expectations. Our purpose was to have our RV painted (a five day event) and to visit Winnebago Industries. The Lodge is across the street from Winnebago’s Visitor's Center and manufacturing/service facilities. It’s a fascinating tour to see how these big Class A vehicles are built.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are convenient to the restaurant and main entrance.

My wife and I recently spent five days at The Lodge. We found our room to be quite comfortable and very clean. The staff was friendly, courteous, and very helpful. The meals that we ate at the restaurant were all well-prepared and tasty. The Lodge is a short drive off the highway and is in a somewhat secluded and peaceful setting. We look forward to our next stay at The Lodge!
