The Hotel does not have a pool nor a complimentary breakfast. But, our stay was great. Clean, quiet, well appointed and the ambience of a turn of the century materials: polished wood, grand staircases plus convenient elevators made for an overnight stay super. We will stay again if the chance comes.

For a fun evening we will occasionally travel to Decorah for the night to enjoy their downtown bars and restaurants, with a stop on the way in to town at the Topling Goliath Brew Pub. We love the small town college atmosphere here. But we will only stay at the Hotel Winn because of it's perfect location to Mabes, the...

The hotel is a mix of old style class and some new conveniences with helpful staff that took care of a large group. At check-in on new years eve the concierge called their manager to reduce the price of an upgrade to a room I had booked in advance. They reduced the price by eighty dollars so we could have...

I have stayed at this hotel many times. Each time it gets a little worse. The rooms are in desperate need of updating. In the King Suite we stayed in the wallpaper was peeling in several places, all of the gold fixtures were tarnished and looked terrible. The room rates are all over the board depending on what is going...

Hotel Winneshiek has the most convenient location, comfortable rooms, and the best team members! All the staff we encountered during our stay were incredibly helpful and knowledgable. Melissa at the desk was very friendly and attentive throughout the weekend and gave me an info sheet for a self-guided history tour when I asked about the historic property. Would love to...

This restored historic hotel is absolutely beautiful. The staff could not have been more helpful. The King Suite is so spacious including 1 1/2 baths. The room we had was so quiet you didn't even know anyone else was in the hotel. The bed was very comfortable. Was very nice to walk around downtown, several places to eat, shop and...

Awesome architecture! The service was excellent! The Scones were wonderful in the Cafe! Just a jewel in the center of a gorgeous town! The whole town is within walking distance. Coffee shops, book stores and museums. The historic district was great! Truly a destination town.
