One of the better ones

13/11/2018 Brett S, Nashville, Tennessee

My family and I used to live in the area and moved away, this is definitely one of the better hotels in Fort Dodge. We always book our hotel here when we are in town visiting family. It is normally pr... more


Older Motel. Not to Bad.

We had a room by the pool and the girls liked it. You can tell its an older hotel they remodeled. Room was clean enough. It surely is not near being a 5-star establishment. Had a bar restaurant didn't... more

Room was beautiful and bed was so comfortable. Girls loved the cabin feel. Some staff was amazing while 1 was not very accommodating. There is usually always 1, right? Still waiting for bill and check... more

Dear Rye - I was sorry to learn that you had such a poor experience during your stay! As you mention in your profile - and as seen by your other reviews - you are a tough customer when it comes to hotels, but I am confident we are up to the challenge and appreciate those like yourself that hold us to a higher level! To that measure - we have recently remodeled the property from top to bottom, including public areas for events, our restaurant, and guest rooms, too! The Business Class King is often a requested favorite among our guests! One of the nice things that happened here recently in May 2018, is that we were awarded the Director's Award for Quality Assurance from Best Western International - placing us in the top 20% of all their properties! We take great pride in our hotel and services and do hope that you will provide us with another opportunity to show you why our locally-owned, award winning property has proudly served the Fort Dodge Community for well over 50 years! Safe travels and please come visit us again so as we can provide you with a better experience! PS: Almost forgot - I did go and double-check our records of our state regulated pool and everything seems to be in perfect order! Thanks again! - Scott
