Very happy overall. Staff was friendly and helpful, room was clean, breakfast was yummy, pool is very nice and clean. Great choice of you travel with a dog. Good value for the price. It's a little bit outside of town but that's ok, the drive is short.

This hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The on site restaurant was very good. The food was good and the portions were large. We asked for a quiet room and was accommodated.

Spent the night here 9/18/2016. We had 2 rooms, poolside. Rooms were good, beds were comfortable and showers were hot. The pool is only 3 1/2 ft deep but my girls (17 - 20 years old) said the water was semi warm. We had a good time. I am giving it 5 stars as I am not really particular about...

Where do I begin? Bed bugs in the beds! Had a maid proposition me for meth! (Sorry, drugs are for losers) The room was very outdated and overall the hotel has really gone downhill in the last year. BBQ restaurant on grounds is average at best. Will not be back!

Stayed at the Starlite Village 1 night for a business meeting. This is a property with some age but the property is well kept and staffed. I arrived midweek the evening before my meeting, and there were very few people staying at the property, was wondering if I was at the correct property. By morning the place had come to...

There is not anything this hotel won't do for you, and the amenities are all there! Fitness center, business center with a printer, several meeting rooms, a ballroom, setup for a full service buffet, big indoor pool, decent hot tub, Buford's Steakhouse has a fair priced menu with delicious wood fire BBQ. They will deliver right to your hotel door.

When we booked the room we requested a pet free room. When we arrived at the hotel we were informed that all rooms were pet friendly and they did not have pet free rooms. The desk clerk said that there had been no pets in our room recently. We stayed but will not stay in this hotel again.

The room was very overpriced for the overall condition: outdated, cleanliness, disrepair. It was imperative that we had the use of wifi and cell service so that we were able to work while in the hotel. It was not working and we had a very weak cellular carrier signal as well which did not allow for internet usage nor text...

The rooms are spectacular and the hotel staff is beyond reproach. I always enjoy my stays and any issues are handled immediately and professionally. This is one of the absolutely best hotels. Everyone is friendly, it is not far to food places. Rooms are so quiet that you do not hear others in adjoining rooms.

My parents live in Fort Dodge so we planned our Family Reunion around them. My siblings and Family all traveled in and stay at the Best Western Starlite Village. What an excellent venue. We had comfortable, clean & affordable lodging, plus the pool area was a big hit with the kids. So much room to visit. Their complimentary Hot Breakfast...
