Super 8 - Spirit Lake/Okoboji

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice place--friendly staff--clean and nicely remodeled. Breakfast was less than we though it should be--not much in the way of hot offerings other than gravy.

I was VERY happy with my stay! They staff were very friendly & extremely helpful when needed. Everything was freshly remodeled & super clean. Only thing I would suggest is to put key card scanners on back door to allow guests to go in & out & not have to trek through the lobby all the time.

This hotel has been recently refurbished (included draperies, mattresses, furniture and TVs). It is now a non-smoking facility, which we really needed. It is the only non-smoking hotel in Spirit Lake, IA. It has a light breakfast, a gas fire pit out front, and good parking. The hotel is located near several fast foods within walking distance, as well as a bowling alley which is attached to a wonderful diner. A major discount store is located across the highway. The bike path, which reaches all the way through Okoboji to Milford, is easily accessed near the motel. The price was right.

Great location. Quiet hotel. Newly remodeled rooms! Very clean. Staff friendly and helpful. We tried to talk them into making smores on the firepit but didn't work. :-)

The room smelled of old cigeret smoke, bathroom door did not close, check in staff person was rude, and check out manager didn't even apologize when we complained about room smell. Refridge and microwave was not working as the breaker was snapped off behind the heavy dressers.

Recent renovation with contemporary updates ... nice fire pit outside! I would have liked to see a bit more variety on the breakfast menu; however we ate later so maybe it was toward the end of the timeframe.

This is the third time we've stayed at the Spirit Lake Super 8, and it's better every time. With this visit, we were able to see the extensive renovations they've completed since last time, and they're all great. The rooms are nicely updated, and the bathrooms are far above what you would expect in a normal Super 8. Staff was friendly and accommodating, as always. We will return, without a doubt.

This Super 8 has been recently renovated and the showers are great! I know it's a tourist area but feel the rates were too high for a Super 8

It is a great place to stay, we have stayed there many times and the place is very clean and the people are very friendly . We would recommend it to everyone.

I was a little nervous as we pulled into the drive because I had family give me bad reviews. I walked in, got to our room and loved it, I had know idea what they were talking about. There has been beautiful updates done, great bathroom sizes, everything you could think of in your room. The Breakfast was great, minus the coffee, that was the worse part of the stay. We were happy with he location and I know we will be back! The only complaint my husband had was "thin walls" you could hear the room next to us (A group of guys) and early morning drunks screaming in the hall, but as this is a hotel and not a home, fully expected this and did not bother me at all.
