This hotel is an excellent place to stay. They are extremely accommodating, making sure that your stay is pleasant and comfortable. I have stayed at this facility a number of times and have never been disappointed. The complimentary breakfast has good choices and is presented well in a very nice room with adequate seating. It is a good value.

My sister and I planned a surprise birthday party for our middle sister and found that this was a central location. They also allow pets which was a plus as I was just coming back from six months in Florida and had my emotional support animal with me. The room we had was very clean nice king size bed with...

My husband and I stayed here for a night after enjoying a show at the Civic Center. I loved the outdoor theme with lots of flannel and moose! Our room was cozy with a very comfortable bed and a great hot tub. The staff was friendly, and the whole hotel was quiet and inviting. I would definitely stay here again.

The room that we stayed in was fantastic! It is a Premier Cottage Suite. Rooms 180 and 188 in the building called "The Cottages." It is a building next door to where you check in. The main reason I gave this 4 stars is due to the complete frustration of trying to book this room. Almost every time I call...

Staying up this property was my first exposure to the Stoney Creek experience. It was quick to see that this Iowa based company is more than just a hospitality company. We were able to stay in the Cottages, a separate building with oversized suites and jacuzzis in each room. Each morning, we were greeted with a complimentary breakfast prepared by...

We stayed in the master suite and you think the staff would have some respect but no. First my group got stuck in the elevator and the staff never said sorry or anything. Then they came into our room and harassed us for splashing each other in the pool. Then three minutes later they kicked us out on the street...

I always enjoy Stoney Creek. They have a great place for a reasonable price. Have stayed for both pleasure and business. Staff is friendly and helpful and breakfast is pretty good. Several of my colleagues have used the hotel as well.

clean hotel rooms. nicely decorated I was traveling with my wife and kids. The negative would be the beds are doubles instead of queens when staying for three nights larger beds would of been more comfortable if queens instead of doubles.

We love the decor and style of Stoney Creek Hotels. Our room was decorated nicely in a rustic style. However, the room felt old and the rug was worn. There weren't enough plug-ins to charge our phones. The breakfast bar was better than some, with a nice bowl of fresh fruit. The bed was comfortable.
