My Son and I stayed at this hotel, because they had a room available at the time we needed it.

We found the room to be very outdated (1970's) and very unconfortable including the beds (like sleeping on wood doors), the pillows were very thin, I needed three to support my head. My son who can sleep almost anywhere had trouble sleeping on his bed.

We both couldn't wait to check out the very next morning (early) and check into another hotel.

On the plus side the clerk was polite.

I have stayed at the Shamrock inn many times in the past. I have never had a bad experience there. The odor( that was reported in another reveiw) comes from the building across the street. It is the Berkely factory they are manufacuring fishing lures there. It is not that bad. The people at the Shamrock have always been very pleasant. If you are on a fishing trip to the Okoboji/Spirit Lake area they often reduce the price if it on the off season. O highly recommend the Shamrock Inn.
