Carpenter, Iowa
Reviewed 10 February 2017

Awesome staff and the rooms were very nice. Excellent restaurant attached too. Pool and hot tub were great. Felt like being at home! Recent upgrades to decor were nice too. This is not a new hotel, so there are imperfections, but that was minor compared to everything else. Excellent value!

Were treated wonderfully by all the staff with any problems or concerns we had. Needing extra blankets to getting the bus back so we could get to the Surf. Also Todd helping us get the room set up for our luncheon, anything we needed set up special. Also all the staff that helped with the luncheon they were all wonderful.

Used BW 3 times in the last couple years and stay has always been good. The pool and the hot tub were very clean and the inside access to the restaurant was very helpful on a cold January night. Always good.

The lobby could be updating Nice overall. I'd stay again It was a nice experience and room was nice. The king room was nice and had a fridge and microwave. Shower could have been better and took awhile for the water to get hot

Very quiet hotel with a workout room that is not used by many people. They have a swimming pool and hot tub if you will want to use them. Many items for breakfast, some are hot. They are working on updating rooms right now but it is very friendly.
