“It was a nice simple hotel-clean and safe-with a great restaurant”
Reviewed June 22, 2009

I was with a group staying in Fort Dodge for a softball touny and was a little worried about this hotel after reading past reviews. It turned out to be an ok hotel. It was old but had been updated. The girls had fun in the pool which was big enough and deep enough for them to horse around in. Everyone ate at the Celler and I can not say enough good things about the food however the service left something to be desired. If you are looking for a fancy hotel this is not it but if you just want a clean safe place you will be fine here.

I stayed at this place as a last resort (all other hotels in town were full) Let me put it this way. Out of all the temporary lodging I've ever stayed in this was the worst - yes even worse than when I stayed a couple nights with the Marines in western Iraq and slept on a cot with my M-16 inside my sleeping bag.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS
If you feel you must stay here walk into the lobby and smell the place - that should change your mind, it smells like someone died in the place and to try and cover it up they dumped ashtrays around.

  • Liked — The fact that I found another place after only one night
  • Disliked — the smell

This place was a complete joke. I payed $100 for a jacuzzi suite. The room was no bigger than a normal room. The king size bed was as hard as a rock. Their dehumidifier was left on when we got there so it was so dry my husband got a nose bleed. The shower was dirty and everytime I called the front desk to ask for anything from housekeeping (towels, blankets) they acted as if it was a neusance that I called and asked to bring something to us.
