The staff was very friendly, the cookies were great, and the room very clean and neat. The bed was like sleeping on the floor. Very hard and very uncomfortable. I woke up with a very stiff back. would not recommend to anyone with back problems. The breakfast was great and checking out was a breeze. If it wasn't for the bed it would have been a great stay.

We have stayed here a number of times while visiting Fort Dodge family. It is essentially clean and comfortable and from time to time reasonablly priced. Though as the only decent place in town they do 'hold-us-up' on their pricing when events in town permit that.Overall ,I would call this a standard middle-of the road hotel which is acceptable to midwest travellers. The most unacceptable feature is the AC/Heater unit which is loud and inspite of being turned off, has an override system which forces it to turn on far too frequently during the night. Most disturbing.Soft water makes bathing treacherous.
Soon the 'top end' accommodation will be joined by a Holiday Inn Express and that will be helpful for travellers in that the competition should help to keep them both honest in pricing,service, and cleanliness.

Large, comfortable bed; excellent breakfast; choice of newspapers including Des Moines Register, as well as current Newsweek magazine. And the coffee is the best I have tasted in a motel. The fast internet was also good. And having an elliptical in the exercise room is just what I wanted. All in all, I enjoyed my stay here.

Stayed here for 2 nights during a softball tournament. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and nice size. We have stayed at many country inn and suites while traveling and this was as expected. Easy to find and just down the road from many restaurants. Would definitely stay here again if ever in Fort Dodge.

It was a clean, comfortable room, but I couldn't get past the funky smell of the room when I first walked in.

The breakfast area was cramped, no room to walk between tables or to get to the breakfast items.

The front desk staff were extremely fast and efficient at getting us checked in and out.

Have stayed here twice while in Ft Dodge on business. This hotel is exactly what you would expect... no frills, no bells and whistles, etc -- just a clean and comfortable room. Will stay here again the next time I stop in Ft Dodge for a night or two.

Great stay. If I were going to choose an extended stay hotel in the area this would be it. A coin laundry, pool, hot tub and breakfast made our brief stay very enjoyable. Also having the microwave and fridge in the room were very helpful as well.
