20 Years Staying At This Days Inn

This has been my hotel of preference for the past 20 years. I spend 4 days 2 times a year at this location and have been satisfied. Why? QUIET Rooms!! A breakfast that is improving to hot offerings; great rates when booking online; friendly staff who know me as a customer; continued upgrades in the rooms. I always know that my stay will be a comfortable one. There is always room for improvement - some hallways smell a bit smokey - but my room is always totally smoke free; the back door doesn't always close completely to lock shut...but I will continue to return to my 'home away from home' in Mason City!

Northwestern Steak House - GREAT steak! Prime and Wine - "Date Night" Special is a good deal as is their Early Bird Special that lasts to 6:20 pm. Many other good restaurants in close proximity to the hotel.

2014 4th of July in Clear Lake IA

It was ok, went to check in, man & woman at front desk continued talking for 5 min before attending to me. The housekeeping staff that I saw was dressed in what looked like pajamas, not a good impression for guests as far as I'm concerned. Overall an ok stay.

Don't stay here

We preferred a non-smoking room, but the reservation provided us with smoking rooms that smelled terrible. The free continental breakfast was the worst I'd ever had: the oatmeal was runny, the fruit didn't look fresh, the pastries were dry, and the choices of cereal were dismal. Don't stay at this hotel in Mason City.

Cheapest room in town

Stayed here twice. Both times, staff was gruff and building was under construction of some sort. It is currently about 40% less expensive than other options, and completely reflected in what you get. Set your expectations accordingly.

There is a beautiful Nature Center just a short drive from the hotel that is well worth your time if you enjoy the outdoors or are looking for something fun to do for the afternoon.

Non Smoking Room

This room smelled of stale smoke. The staff spayed 3 squirts of some liquid on the carpet which was suppose to eliminate the odor. It did not!!!! Then tried to say no one smoked in there. There was an ashtray on the dresser! Also, the bed was not comfortable. I will never stay at this Days Inn ever.
