“great stop”
Reviewed November 29, 2011

Two reasons we chose this hotel - it was a great halfway point to our destination and it has a hot tub and pool. It's off season for the area, so the rate was very reasonable. The beds and pillows were super comfy. We learned that Okiboji means "place of rest" ... and that it was!

I stayed here by myself while traveling for business. Women traveling alone need to be aware of their lodging choices- I felt safe from the moment I stepped in the door ! The hotel was clean and quiet and the breakfast was more than adequate! The bed was comfortable. Staff asked me each time I encountered them if there was anything they could do for me- now THAT is service! I will definitely stay here again !

Hey it's a Ramada Inn. Nothing special. Small in-door pool. Small breakfasts. Centrally located. Clean rooms. Near shipping, restaurants, and lakes.

The hotel is in nice condition. Its around 10 years old.. Rooms were clean & comfortable, as were the bed. Stayed here both going to and coming from a trip out west to Idaho. The main reason to stay here was to go to Arnolds Park Amusement Park, but the first night we arrived late on Sunday and the park closed at 7pm. On our trip home we stayed over again on a Wednesday night with the idea of going to the amusement park on Thursday. We called the park that morning to find out the park was closed all week leading up to Labor Day weekend, becuase the kids are back in school.

I should of checked websites or called prior to booking this hotel which cost over $300 for the two nights. Ramada Inn is a bit over priced, for this area. Its not Orlando or Vegas its the middle of nowhere Iowa!

We have stayed here every summer for the last 3 or 4 years when we attend a family re-union at Lake Okoboji. The staff is very nice and the rooms are great (liked the new carpet). We really like to stay in the Queen Suite because it gives our family plenty of space. I would not hesitate to stay here again next summer.

My family of 5 stayed here for a short getaway to Okoboji. The hotel looks like it's brand new, the place was spotless. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the price was very good for the area. I have 3 girls under the age of 6 so we enjoyed the pool and continental breakfast, which was good and free :) We would definitely start here again!
