“Nice newer hotel”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Stayed here over the July 4th holiday. This is a newer hotel and in very good shape. Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, esp. the overnight desk clerk. I worked into the wee hours in the hotel business center and she offered me coffee and juice and was especially helpful. Family stayed in room that had two queens and sofa sleeper, slept 6 comfortably. Rooms were nice and comfy. Breakfast was standard fare for HI-Express. Wi-Fi was speedy, I had no trouble uploading and downloading large files through VPN. Pool was decent and kids enjoyed the hot tub.
TIP: it is easy to miss turn off from the main road to this hotel as it is not well marked at all. The hotel faces the side instead of the main road and I was expecting a large, well-lit sign. Drove by it before we saw it the first time. Look for a sign for a McDonald's and turn at the first road before you drive by the sign.

This hotel was perfect in regards to it's cleanliness and location. It's just a couple of years old so it's in great shape. The breakfast is the normal Holiday In Express fair and is a good value and covers all bases. The location is quiet and safe.

Room Tip: The rooms face either East or West so choose when you would like to have the sun in the room.

Good location to attend 4th of July events in Clear Lake. The breakfast service the following morning was very busy and the server was a bit overwhelmed, but otherwise had a lot of choices. Would definitely stay again if we come next year for the 4th!

We stayed for two nights, June 7 & 8, for a family wedding. Our family had booked about 10 rooms. We had a wonderful stay. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was very nice with lots of choices. We enjoyed the pool quite a bit since we had many young children in our group. We would definitely stay here again.

We happened upon this hotel when we were looking for a place to stay for the night during a cross country drive. I could not have asked for a better place. The staff was friendly and so thoughtful. My son was on crutches so the front desk representative made sure we got a room right beside the elevator. The room was spotless and we were given an upgrade to a suite for the price of a regular room because they only had suites left for the night. Breakfast was wonderful and had lots of choices. I highly recommend staying here if you ever venture into Mason City!

The staff here were excellent!!! They were friendly and helpful and a Ruby Tuesday's was right across the parking lot. The room was clean and fresh smelling, and the bathroom was spotless. I would recommend this to anyone needing a quiet, restful night with a quick breakfast. The price is in line with other hotels in the area. Overall a really nice overnight spot!

Reviewed 25 April 2013

This is a brand now property, built on the site of a crummy old hotel. Friendly Staff, good breakfast, good furnishings, comfy beds, abundant towels.

The floor (at leas on the third floor) creaks. Not ok for a new building.

Room Tip: Top floor to avoid the creaky floors, but walk softly.
