We have been coming to this hotel the same weekend for approximately 20 years for our family reunion and book nearly the entire hotel. The hotel itself is fine. Decent breakfast, but the seating area is very chilly with the entrance doors opening and closing nearby. My primary issue with this hotel was the unnecessarily strict staff. I can understand rules being in place for rowdy, disrespectful groups. However, with the average age or our family members being around 40 yoa, I don't think sitting in the lobby visiting around the fireplace should be required to end at 10 pm. The daytime staff were very friendly and helpful. The nighttime staff seemed to expect that everyone should sleep at 10pm. One staff was actually "patrolling" up and down the hallways. Again, I can understand if someone in the hotel complained about the noise, but our family booked approximately 80% or more of the hotel. With that kind of investment I would think a little grace could be given. We will likely be staying elsewhere in the years to come.

Staff was great accommodating our rowdy 8 year old hockey team! Didn't mind our group of around 60 full of crazy kids at all! Breakfast was great and staff did everything to make our stay great! Pool area was super fun and even threw an impromptu birthday party. They didn't mind a bit! Price was great and we will definitely be back!

Very clean and very welcoming staff. Definitely stay again. We were there with a hockey team and they were very helpful in finding area places for us to take our kids and to eat at. Kids loved the pool area and breakfast!

This was a nice room to stay in for a wedding. I like the layout of the room with the sink outside of the bathroom and that there was one of the decent size smaller fridges in the room. It was a comfortable sleep and a good location near the wedding happenings.

We stayed one night on Oct. 21, 2017. Everything was perfect...from the room to the balcony. Not a great view, but the well maintained and just perfect water temperature of the pool made up for that. Clean, very well stocked and nice array of breakfast items included. Our hats go off to the employees as this far exceeded the AmericInn in Spencer, IA we stayed overnight on Oct.22nd...we wish we would've just traveled a bit further to this motel again.

Lobby staff efficient and polite. Decor of lobby and rooms beautiful. Pool, hot tub, sauna - fun, breakfast - amazing - tasty waffles, bagels, juice, coffee, yogurt and so much more. Loved the eggs and then loved the sausage, eggs biscuit and gravy Sunday morning. Very pleased with stay. Always had ice. Placed on same floor of wedding party which was very nice.

Awesome place in the summer ... hotel is close to lake/attractions... super nice room for the price. They have other properties in the midwest. Nice breakfast buffet!! Would go back. The lake is 1.5 away.

The hotel was clean. The staff was friendly. We had a wonderful experience. We stayed just one night but we slept well and loved the jetted tub. We will go back again. Our son also stayed and he felt the same way we did.

We used the swimming pool several times during our weekend stay, along with the sauna and hot tub. Our room also had a private access to our private patio with two chairs and a table which was a nice place to play table games and have coffee in the morning. The beds were very comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and the staff was great!

The hotel is in a nice location near several restaurants including top rated on Trip Advisor Minerva's which is nearly next door. I felt safe and that my vehicle would be safe here. The front desk guy, upon check in was very nice and accommodating upon arrival. The room was very clean including the between the mattresses check. They have a nice pool and sauna/hot tub setup here which we didn't get to try out. Breakfast was pretty good the following morning and the breakfast lady seemed to stay busy at her job. Overall the stay was nearly excellent but for a few minor hiccups with a cantankerous toilet that would flush twice sometimes and then just halfway flush and the room smelling a bit musty. We sprayed some air freshener that we carry with us when we travel for such instances and the mustiness settled down or we got used to the musty smell. I explained the minor problems to whom I think was the manager upon checkout and did it in a polite way so they could fix the problem for the next guest. I told her that we really liked the place overall besides the small things and received a reply of "Well at least we didn't completely fail!" That reply sort of rankled me because I had explained that we really liked the place other than the small problems. All I can figure is she was irritated from interviewing some new help because she had been very friendly earlier in the morning when I needed a plunger for the cantankerous toiled that had half flushed and backed up on only a small amount of toilet paper. Other than that, we enjoyed the place. I just hope her day got better because telling about the toilet and the mustiness of the room was only meant to help improve the visit of the next guest. .
