I have traveled for 19yrs and this is by far the friendliest and nicest "mom and pop" motel I have ever stayed at. The new owners truly treat their guests as family. They BBQ on the weekend for their guests. Knowing I got off work late they saved a rib plate and brats. The rooms are clean and the beds...

This is a great place to stay for business or pleasure it is an old style hotel and recently purchased by a new owner. John is a hotel manager with several years experience and like he said I now manage a hotel for myself. He is remodeling and fixing the place up. It is money well spent at a reasonable...

Was fortunate enough to find this place and get to stay here. At first approach it feels like another motel, but once you get to your room and meet the people, it far more feels like home. Perfect for an overnight near beautiful Midwest scenery or a stay for a while and explore the lake and adventure nearby!

Stayed here for 3 weeks for work. Rooms are very clean. Service was great. The rates were very good, they have weekly rates available, and they even offered to clean my laundry for an additional fee. I would definitely recommend anyone coming to the area to check out The Lighthouse Inn.

I stayed at the Lighthouse while in Storm Lake to see my son who is a student at BVU University. The Lighthouse is a family owned business offering friendly service for their cottage like feel rooms. It is a quaint place offering clean and affordable rooms. The motel is across the street from the waterpark, also a nice park for...

This was the second summer I stayed at The Lighthouse Inn for this conference. It was half the price of the King's Pointe Water Park Resort (Water Park passes can be purchased even if you don't stay at the Resort) that is across the street. Storm Lake is across the street and presents a beautiful view.The walking/bike trail that goes...

This weekend we had my daughter receiving her Bachelor's Degree, so I choose The Lighthouse Inn to stay. This hotel is awesome..

The owner (Thayne) was a fantastic host. Very friendly and accommodating. Hotel decor is dated, but clean and functional. An economical choice for business travel. Great access to the walking trails around the lake

Showed up here in the work truck and was greeted by one of the owners. He was very friendly and already had a room set aside for me. Room isn't too bad. Has a flat screen and pretty clean. The A/C blows cold and the bed is comfortable. Definitely would not mind staying here again in the future.

We stayed there with our family reunion and I felt right at home. The owner is very friendly, gracious, and informative. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean. The rate was acceptable. There is a huge water park across the street as well as a miniature golf course. Very nice attractive town. We would like to go back...
