The staff here were excellent!!! They were friendly and helpful and a Ruby Tuesday's was right across the parking lot. The room was clean and fresh smelling, and the bathroom was spotless. I would recommend this to anyone needing a quiet, restful night with a quick breakfast. The price is in line with other hotels in the area. Overall a really nice overnight spot!

This is a brand now property, built on the site of a crummy old hotel. Friendly Staff, good breakfast, good furnishings, comfy beds, abundant towels.

The floor (at leas on the third floor) creaks. Not ok for a new building.

Room Tip: Top floor to avoid the creaky floors, but walk softly.

My husband and I were in town for business. We were pleased with the Holiday Inn Express - the rooms were very clean, it was quiet, the breakfast was adequate, the fitness center was nice, and the pool area was also nice. The lobby was very lovely. What I liked the most was the wall control for the heating/AC. The front desk staff were friendly and were very easy to understand. We would stay there again.

I thought the hotel was very modern, clean and overall a nice place to stay. The staff we encountered were very friendly. Our room was clean and quiet. We asked about staying on the first floor, and the clerk very kindly explained that it may be a bit noisy by the pool. We took a room on the second floor and it was very quiet. They served a nice breakfast. Instead of waffles, they had a pancake machine. Push the button and the machine made two hot fresh pancakes.
I would stay here again.

The staff was great, very helpful too. Rooms were very clean and loved the low tub wall, decent water pressure. Great location. Nice flat screen tv. Didn't have wireless Internet, fridge, or safe. Pool temp decent. Breakfast was typical continental style and set up well. Would stay again as we were comfortable there. Housekeeping understanding and very respectful to our wishes. The beds and pillows and temp control better than most.

We have stayed here before but I forgot to write a review. I just wanted to say that the last time we stayed earlier this year the one thing that was terrible is that the bed frames in our room stuck out 3 inches. Our entire family had near falls and nicks on our shins. We informed the front desk, maybe they've fixed it. I think we stayed in room 107.

This time the bed frames were where they were supposed to be! We stayed in a suite. It was spacious and very clean. The beds are comfortable and we highly prize a comfortable bed. This is clearly the place to stay when in Mason City especially with children.

We have begun to skip the breakfasts at Holiday inns though. I think that the chain as a whole needs to reevaluate the quality of their food.

Room Tip: Avoid room 107 unless they have fixed the bed frames.

Modern, clean, excellent staff. Definite stay again, without question. Stayed on Nov 9th, front desk help was excellent, room rate for standard dbl queen was $89 at the time. Rooms very clean, attention to detail was noticeable.
