The hotel and rooms are very clean, and there is even an in-room Keurig coffee maker. There are a lot of amenities as well. Breakfast was delcious. The staff was friendly, and...

Very nice, super clean, very quiet. We enjoyed staying here very much. The room had in-room Keurig coffee maker, nice amenities and so clean. We had 2 pillows each, one soft; one more firm. The hallway and rooms were quiet, we didn't hear other guests at all. The bathroom area has a very large vanity and a shelf underneath for...

This is a very clean and new hotel right off the highway. There is not much rear it other than the casino but it is a great place to get some sleep. Free hot breakfast as always and great customer service. Large parking area and fuel is right across the street so I could fill up before I got back...

My husband and I stayed here on out way to Des Moines. We chose the Holiday Inn vs The Country in since it was a tiny bit cheaper. We also like to play craps--which we did, but we were glad we chose to stay at the unattached hotel to limit our temptations of going back to the casino! Anyway! The...

I needed a place to stay while traveling south. This location was convenient, right off the highway. It seems like the middle of nowhere but there is Diamond Jo's casino right across the street. The rooms were nice and the service was friendly and professional. The free breakfast was good, I love those cinnamon rolls. I would certainly stay here...

We chose this hotel because our first choice, the Holiday Inn Express in Mason City, was full that night. We made a poor room choice, going for the top floor, but facing east toward the casino and gas station. Unfortunately, the noise of the diesel trucks using the frontage road for the casino and truck stop carried on all night....

We had a sour taste in our mouths from a previous stay in a Holiday Inn Express and were leary about staying in one again, we had no choice so we booked a room here. The staff was VERY friendly and very attentive to our needs, especially the shuttle bus driver Tina who went above and beyond her duties to...

A great location, but not too crowded. Rest Stop, gas station, casino, and hotel. What a great combination. Hotel was clean and people were personable. Would stay again. I actually just stopped for the rest area, and decided to check out the hotel. Since it was starting to get dark I decided to stay. Didn't have a reservation, but got...
