HOTEL- MASON CITY, IOWA

ROOM WAS NEAT AND CLEAN. COFFEE WAS FRESH UNLIKE MOST HOTELS WHERE IT TASTES OLD. BREAKFAST WAS GOOD BUT THE BREAKFAST AREA COULD BE A LITTLE BIGGER WITH A LITTLE MORE ROOM TO SIT AND MORE ROOM TO PREPARE YOUR BREAKFAST

Cheap night stay

Desk person talked too much about personal life that was way too much information. Did not like the dumpy look of the bar b q's outside of the office and people hanging out.

Not worth even the low price

If you are looking for a place to crash while you shoot heroine or kill a quart of bourbon this place might be for you. Even then, it could get inconvenient when you realize that there is no TP in the bathroom. Spend the extra $20 and stay at another hotel down the street. Even at the price this place isn't worth it.

America's Best Review

The staff was wonderful! Everything was clean but they could possibly use some funding to update some items (comforters worn out) and additional cleaning. It was a great hotel though and the staff really made up for it and definitely made us laugh. We enjoyed getting to have a conversation with them and they actually cared what we had to say. :)

Definitely check out the surf ballroom. No matter what band or type of music is playing there, just get tickets and go. That was the reason for our visit and we travel to Iowa just to go there and now we have a hotel we will be staying at more often when we visit.

Priced right, clean sheets

noisy vent fan, mattress springs crunched. This is an OLD motel. Price was comparatively low. Breakfast consisted of bad coffee, banana, stale minidoughnut.
