The television was horrible. The fridge barely worked and ruined the food we had in there. The hotel was decently clean but smelled oh stale smoke inside. The website says restaurant on site and there were none.

Empty water bottle between the desk & the wall (not ours) & the king bed was definitely not a king. We also asked for extra pillows/blankets for the pull-out couch that we never ended up getting. Breakfast was very nice & everything else was very clean. Other than the pillow/blanket issue, staff was great!

Well, first thing we got there couldn’t get in the garage. Went back twice and finally another guest let us in the garage!! We were both under the impression there was a restaurant and lounge in the hotel! Wrong. They did had a couple of beers in the fridge and chips/cookies if that would do. There was NO place to eat close by except for one that had 11/2hr wait!! Then, we asked for a blanket and she asked if we could come and get it ourselves!!! No workers!! It was raining so we asked if the shuttle could run us over to the Civic Center! No shuttle!!! Or driver!!! So came back around 10:45 with nothing to eat!!! We ordered a pizza who said it wouldn’t take long! An hour later we got a cold pizza and had no microwave! Went to breakfast which was ok except my plastic glass had a big crack and milk went all over. Keep in mind I use a walker which made things much more complicated!! So for paying most of $200.00 we were both pretty discussed!!! I would have a hard time staying there again!! Ken and Nancy Christensen. Mason City
