Came for the Iowa State Fair - quaint lodge theme hotel - love the enormous moose out front and the consistent lodge theme throughout the hotel. My 9 yr old daughter fell in love with the indoor/outdoor pool. Clean, well maintained, friendly hotel. Next time would stay on the upper floor - early morning outdoor rolling trash bin removal was...

Tinkerbell847, I hope you had a great time at the Iowa State Fair! Thank you for choosing us to meet your accommodation needs. The pool area is so much fun for kids and adults as well!

We stayed here for the iowa state fair and are very satisfied with that decision. It's unique in its theme; as you drive in to their parking lot, you are greeted by an enormous moose statue standing in front of the entrance and a bear right by the door. When you walk in, you're welcomed by a black bear on...

Upon our arrival we were quickly checked in to our room. It was nice to be in a motel that is not a chain. It is an attractive place to stay with a small bar inside to get a drink. The rooms were clean and the beds were nice. The pool area was nice because part of it is inside...

I have stayed here several times and Stoney Creek never let's me down. Only one suggestion...outdoor pool could use a little work. Easy access to interstates and a few good restaurants near by. Movie theater within walking distance too.

When we got to this hotel the front desk could not find our reservation. After traveling all day in the heat I was very frustrated to hear this. After troubleshooting with the front desk Manager, she determined that my reservation was accidently deleted, not sure how considering it was prepaid. This was not the way I wanted to start my...

hawaiitraveler2011, We are terribly sorry for the inconveniences you encountered during your stay. Unfortunately our pool was closed due to lightning and severe weather in the area. We recognize this does disrupt pool time for our guests, but it is our brand standard to put guest's safety first. We are terribly sorry for the miscommunication with your husband's phone charger....

We loved the overall look of the hotel. My husband and son are very much the outdoorsy type and just loved the surroundings. The rooms were clean and comfortable. When we walked in they already had the air on and it worked exceedingly well. The kids loved the pool and hot tub area and spent a lot of time there....

The room is ALWAYS the way you want it to be, clean, nice furnishings, all the electronics work and the towels don't look like they are ready to go to the garage for work towels. The staff is always friendly and professional.
