All staff very friendly and helpful and good Covid protocol. It was convenient having restaurant attached to the hotel. The location was good. I realize with Covid cleaning pertaining to sanitizing takes priority. The recessed light in bathroom had a dead spider and bugs in it. The extra latch on the door was loose, we ended up remounting it ( was installed incorrectly).

Check in was great. Staff was friendly. Got to room and someones dirty socks, food crumbs and paper on the floor. They hadn't vacuumed at all. The bathroom floor hadn't been mopped as there was hair on the floors. The toilet was wobbly and needs to be fixed.

Had to be in fort dodge to pick up my grandson, At 8:00 Tuesday morning and I live about 2 1/2 hours away. I did stay before so I thought I would stay again because of the silence. Both times I forgot to request bottom floor. I have a bad foot a bad hips and it makes it hard to carry my things up the steps. Would be nice if threre was an elevater. I would recommend best western starlite to anyone going to fort dodge, Iowa Thanks Cheryle

All in all this is probably towards the top of the list for lodging in Fort Dodge. When we first checked in our room smelled of smoke; we requested a new room and the staff was extremely courteous in moving us to a smoke-less and slightly nicer room. Fairly standard amenities, although their pool is definitely above average. Location is somewhat on the outskirts of town, but considering the size of Fort Dodge it's not that inconvenient (especially in light of the solid pricing).

Hotel was fine. We had 2 rooms but did not get promised discount because one room was not booked directly thru hotel.

Arrived late. No one at desk but he came when we called the hotel. Check-in quick and room was ready. Clean and comfortable. Poolside view in enclosed area. Nice and open with pool and hot tub but we didn't use. Breakfast good (not great) with standard fare: cook ur own waffles, sausage, gravy, biscuits, corned beef hash, weird eggs (thin sorta poached?), good fresh fruit, yogurt, instant oatmeal, etc. Overall, better than most.

very clean hotel. Rooms are in excellent shape. I was honestly a little leery but was impressed. I think this is the best overall hotel in Fort Dodge.

very nice place. Nice buffet breakfast. clean friendly staff. They helped us find a place to fix our car.

The service was amazing. They were very kind and the steakhouse was delicious. We ended up staying an extra night and upgraded to a poolside room with a hot tub my kids were in heaven. The front desk was definitely aiming to please. We will for sure be back to stay here it was a nice quiet get away. The only negative aspect we asked for more pillows but they didn't have any available.

We went to a wedding in town.The lighting was bad,the hot tub didn't work and there was no elevator. But we loved the breakfast.

Thank you for your feedback! I am very disappointed to hear of the housekeeping challenges you experiences during your stay. I will be using this as a learning experience for my girls. I hope you will give us another chance to offer a superior experience the next time you're in our area!
