We stayed here for the experience. The main lobby and bar area were great, staff was personable and welcoming in both areas. We really enjoyed our drinks in the bar and would return there again. Room was basic, no frills at all. Bed was comfortable but I never had the urge to “hang out” in the room, it wasn’t that inviting. Breakfast was disappointing.

The property is beautiful but starting to show a little wear. It has the best location for Decorah stay. It is an easy to walk to pretty much anywhere you would want to go. I have stayed here before and was not aware that there were tiny rooms without a closet and had I known that, I would have been more careful about the room description before booking, but that is on me.
