We went to Decorah for our anniversary. Hotel Winneshiek has a nice old-world feel to it. Our room (kingsize room) was larger than expected. The bed was comfy. The room and the bathroom were clean, and we really liked our stay. We would definitely stay here again.
But in the interest of information, there were some minor issues. First, the shower was nearly impossible to get to a comfortable temperature. This could have been because the tub was a whirlpool, which was itself nice and decadent. Second, the room was a bit warmer than we would have liked, though they did provide a fan which solved that problem. Third, there was a wedding on our first morning, and we happened to be next door to one of the rooms where the wedding party were getting ready. It was pretty loud. That being said, I cannot imagine any other restaurant being any less noisy when people obviously having fun and getting ready for a celebration were next door! Fourth, the bar closed on our first night before 10pm because, apparently, no one had been in for 2 hours. That was disappointing. But we walked down the road to La Rana, which was well worth the detour!
So, basically, I'd say this hotel had some of the problems that any hotel would have, but it more than made up for them with its old-world style, location, and cleanliness. It's way better than staying at a chain!
