“I would have stayed longer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014

We were traveling through the area and only stayed one night but it was terrific! I stay in alot of HIE due to work discount and this is one of the best. I mentioned to the clerk at check-in that our previous night was horrible because of kid groups, so he put us in the back, quiet area, and on the top floor as we requested. It was wonderful! The room was just what we expected, very clean. The free breakfast was one of the best I've seen, so many choices and so much room to sit! The staff member brought us out some fresh eggs, and was so kind. When I checked out, I asked if this was a new place because it seemed like it, the clerk said 'no', but that the owners do a great job of staying on top of things. It shows, very nice place and I would stay here again in a heartbeat! It was also close to so many places to eat.

Clean comfortable room. Price was good. Plenty of very good places to eat within walking distance. Staff very helpful and friendly
Will definitely stop here again when going through again. Breakfast was also very well stocked.

This hotel was excellent, rooms and common areas were clean, bed was comfortable, pillows were great. Staff did a really good job, the breakfast staff really were on the ball, as crowded as that breakfast area was, they never ran out of anything and everything was stocked.

This hotel is in an excellent location, near shopping, restaurants, and bars, many within walking distance. This hotel is also very close to the Interstate highway.

There is nothing to complain about with this hotel, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would stay here again no questions asked.

We've been staying at this property for at least 8 years, and have been very pleased each time. Clean, comfortable, bright rooms with decent beds make for a good nights rest. It's also a very quiet building (compared to some of the newly constructed hotels). The staff is efficient, although not overly friendly...but they get the job done. We're looking forward to our next visit.

I have stayed here several times as a participant in the Siouxland Renaissance Fair. The rooms are nice and fairly quiet. The breakfast is good but gets a bit crowded on the weekends and it is hard for the servers to keep up. The hotel is close to many good restaurants. The staff have always been very nice, even with the bunch of odd fellows that make up any Ren Fair,

Room Tip: ask for the main building if you want to be close to the pool or breakfast, otherwise it is quite a...

Excellent hotel. Outstanding staff. Superb rooms. Two times each year I need to book a block of up to 28 rooms for the non-profit I belong to. Each time I receive remarkable service from the staff. I have no problems with the reservations and changes are never a hassle. My guests always love their rooms and let me know how comfortable they are. I could never say enough wonderful things about this hotel.

Not a bad hotel. Staff was efficient but not terribly friendly. There is a pool and a jacuzzi and the pool area was clean and well maintained. Room was average, nothing to write home about. I did like the full size pillows though. Breakfast was good, biscuits and gravy, eggs, sausage links and waffles. Cold items included cereal, bagels, muffins and yogurt. Nice stay but I think the price was a little high even though it was summer rates. Overall it was a nice stay but I think next time I will look for a little better value
