AmericInn Lodge & Suites Okoboji
Ranked #2 of 6 Hotels in Okoboji
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 November 2010

We stayed at the hotel in mid-September for two nights to attend a family event nearby. The hotel was very functional and compared favorably to the Inn at Okoboji where we had stayed five years ago. The rooms were quite large, and ours had a jacuzzi, which was very relaxing. The breakfast was more than what we expected; especially the waffles were delicious. The staff went out of their way to assist us with advice and directions. To our surprise, the hotel was very full, which seems to have been related to a country fair. Maybe this is why our rate was relatively high, close to New York levels. But maybe it's just the price level in the area, which boast beautiful and expensive vacation homes and relatively few good hotels. Coming from the East Coast, we just would not expect this price level in the Midwest. But this should not cloud the fact that the hotel seems like a good choice for what you can get in Okoboji.

The desk staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The housekeeping staff obviously takes great pride in their work. The place is immaculate. The breakfast is a little bit on the order of "...meh..." It's enough to get you going in the morning. Real good coffee, though. Comfortable beds and a $5 cab ride to any place in town. I'll keep going back to this hotel,

This is not the first time I've stayed at this facility and it just keeps getting better. Staff is courteous and really into giving you good personal attention.

It's close to "where the action is" during the summer tourist season, it's close to family and friends in Spirit Lake and the Park area.

You don't hear the traffic that is renown during the summer season.

All in all I had the perfect stay!

We were in town for only a few days to visit family and wanted a place to stay near the lakes region. We have stayed in five star hotels, and while the glitz may be nice, we have never had a more comfortable stay than our experience at the AmericInn. The staff was friendly, courteous and engaging. My daughter loves the pool and we all loved the breakfast. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

I had stayed at this hotel about 4 years ago and it was a good experience. I paid $159.00 for a basic room and I am disappointed.

The ad in the local magazine says the rooms have "new plush top beds" and other great things. The beds were NOT plush top beds - they were worn out. The feel of the whole hotel seemed to mirror that - worn out.

I don't care for their bathroom layout vs. Hampton Inn and it seemed like a no frills deal. The breakfast was weak and when I complained about the beds this morning, the front desk gal seemed indifferent to my concerns.

The value for $160.00 is not there anymore. You can find a better hotel if you want to do some looking.

We would like to thank you for your review of our hotel. Although we enjoy hearing the excellent comments regarding our facilities we understand at times there will be criticisms as well.

Our complimentary breakfast is served each morning offering the following selections: assorted donuts and pastries, fresh Belgian waffles, biscuits and gravy, assorted cereals, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, oatmeal, bagels, assorted breads, muffins, fresh fruit, juices, milk and our own signature blend of coffee. Thank you again for your comments as they will be used to continue to make the AmericInn the best lodging choice in Okoboji.

Americ Inn Okoboji was a great experience. Friendly and helpfull staff, clean facilities and great location. Rooms were very clean and accomodating. Beds are really comfy and there was a nice flat screen tv in the room. Continental breakfast was good too and really adds to the value of the stay. They even have extra long parking stalls for boats which was a nice surprise. Front Desk staff were all really nice. There was a public boat launching ramp just down the road and the hotel is surrounded by everything you would need, including a walmart just down the road. Just thinking about it makes me want to go back !

Everything was perfect...from the directions we received over the phone, the close proximity to the Okoboji Summer Theatre, the warm welcome we were greeted with as we entered the large, and beautiful lobby, the comfort of our roomy and exceptionally clean room, the friendliness of the whole staff, to the helpful concierge service at the desk. It was a wonderful experience I'd gladly re-live !
