The manager and the front desk smelled a lot like alcohol. They were rude, unprofessional, and careless. The parking lot were slippery and not clean. I will not recommend this hotel to anyone. Your business is going to lose customer.

Not much going for this place. Continental breakfast is toast, coffee and cold cereal. They brought out 1 cinnamon roll and waffle mix when I asked, but the waffle maker was not functioning. So I went down the street for breakfast. Swimming pool is empty "until further notice". The door to get into the south side of the building has...

I stayed here with my family. I was surprised to see pictures of a really nice pool were posted on the page, but when you walk in its "permanently closed." That was a joke, government discount was a joke, the beds were an UNCOMFORTABLE joke. Don't stay here.

Was just about to book a return stay when I read the reviews here. What happened? I loved the pool but it seems like it's been closed for years. The staff was so nice and rooms very clean. What a shame. Guess I'll be booking somewhere else.

Horrible experience at this hotel! Ended up staying at a different hotel. We got stuck paying for 2 rooms for two nights for our family reunion because the reservation was made with a 3rd party. We chose Storm Lake as a central location as we come from different areas of Iowa and MN. We were unfamiliar with the hotel and...

“I wouldn't stay in any room at this hotel ever again, but if you choose to go, I guess make sure you get a room with functioning A/C.”

“The rooms on the south side are quieter due to the rumble strips on the street north of the motel.”
