The room was spacious and clean. The desk clerk was very helpful and directed us to a very nice local restaurant. Very quiet stay on a busy night when bad weather kept a lot of people from traveling further north.

A very nice hotel, clean and modern across the board. Wonderful breakfast. Surprised to learn no whirlpool... important for one of our party and we should have asked before booking. Otherwise, a fine hotel.

My friends and I came up for a quilting weekend. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the hotel very much. Special thanks to Donnie who took very good care of us. He is a fine employee, courteous and helpful. We are planning to come again.

Amazing!! The afternoon/night front desk man was WONDERFUL. I booked a room to have a small birthday party for my 6 year old daughter and they let me do so in the breakfast area. They were very accommodating and the hotel was very clean!! Will definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family. Thanks again front desk man!

This one shares the qualities of most Holiday Inn Expresses: clean comfortable (love the choice of soft and firm pillows) friendly staff, bill under the door during the night, updated furniture in perfect condition. Tiffany Drive is the turn off from the highway and a little hard to find if traveling east.

Nice hotel. Clean and well designed. Breakfast bar is very well-stocked with extra items above and beyond the minimum required - like many more yummy teas than usual and little bags available for carrying leftovers upstairs. Housekeeping staff are friendly and accommodating. I stayed here three nights and would stay again. Oh, also very quiet and restful place.

Spent one night here while visiting Mason City. It is in an area south of downtown where most of the hotels are located. Many restaurants nearby within walking distance. Staff was very helpful. Breakfast was the usual HI Express offerings and the breakfast room was large enough that we did not feel crowded. Guest rooms were very comfortable and the...

I think we took the last room available. They did offer a bereavement rate which was nice. Room was very clean. Rates were higher than expected for a small town that I grew up in. It was conveniently located across from Ruby Tuesday, so it was nice to walk over for supper. Staff was very nice.
