Newer hotel, spacious rooms, nice lobby, friendly staff. Very clean. We were there for a class reunion and they let us use the conference room to sit around and talk in the evening. Would stay there again! Also, very easy 8 mile drive to Clear Lake.

We recently stayed overnight with grandchildren for a family reunion and had a great time. We booked 2 rooms and found both to be roomy and clean. Pool area is very nice and breakfast was great. We have stayed here many times and will again!

Our room was nice and the beds were comfortable, HOWEVER, we were looking forward to the pool, which we were told was closed indefinitely. Thank goodness we didn't have young children with us! The breakfast was poor...the eggs were almost crispy, they were so dried out. So, if you're just looking for a nice room, you should stay here. If...

Hotel is exactly what you expect from Holiday Inn, friendly staff, clean average size rooms, and a good free breakfast. We used this hotel as a quick one night stopover on our way to St Louis, ur room was very quite and we had a good nights sleep.

This hotel is clean and new. The rooms were nice and comfortable with a large bathroom. It has a good breakfast with with eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy and a pancake maker which the kids loved. The price for a queen suite was around 146.00 with tax and slept my party of five perfectly.

We stayed here on our way to northern Minnesota. Staff was friendly, rooms were clean, standard Holiday Inn express breakfast was hot and tasty - gotta love the cinammon rolls! Good spot to stay just off interstate 35 (6 miles east).

We stayed in 6 hotels scattered across the Midwest as we toured the area, and this hotel had the best swimming pool of all of them (cleaner, warmer, and uncrowded). Their other amenities were comparable to the other hotels we visited.

Not many choices in town and this is by far the best. Check in was easy, the place is clean and everything in my room worked. Fairly close to the interstate and I was surprised how quiet it was. Internet rocked an average of 27mbs. I don't often stay in Mason City but this is my go to place
