I found Boulders Inn on the internet as I need a place to stay for 2 nights while visiting a cousin that I hadn't seen for over 50 years. Having never been to the area I relied on prior reviews to help me make my decision as to where to stay. I was not disappointed as my stay was comfortable...

I arrived at the Boulders Hotel in Milford/Okoboji, IA around 4:00 PM on Friday, 5/5/2017. The gentleman at the desk informed me breakfast would be served in the lobby from 6 AM to 10 AM. I came downstairs to the lobby at 8:15 AM, and all breakfast items (eggs, sausage, etc.) had run out. I asked the girl at the...

We appreciate your honest feedback. We apologize for the breakfast misunderstanding. We do offer a free breakfast from 6-10 am and unfortunately battle the ongoing staffing issues. We hope you reconsider staying with us again as we have hired more staff and continue to train our employees.

I had a blast; I always do when I come. A big reason is the Boulders; it's close and very nice. It all ties together. I am only 600 yards from Emerald Hills. It is always very difficult to leave. You can't take home out of someone's heart and mind.

Room very clean and staff helpful. Family emergency required changes to extend stay then changed to depart earlier. Every staff member we interacted with was friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel

Would come again. Staff great. Room very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good.. kept up and replenished. I traveled for a funeral. I felt for the last minute arrangement, price very reasonable.

The Boulders Inn & Suites is a very nice, new motel. We enjoyed our stay, however, did not see a pool or hot tub. The complimentary breakfast was the usual fare. Desk personnel were friendly and helpful.

I apologize for the difficulty of the high beds and low toilets. I will see to it that I add more description and pictures to the online ads. Please going forward make sure to ask for the handicapped accessible rooms which have the bed much lower so that a ladder is not required.

Had a great stay, room was great, bed was comfy, and service good also. Would definitely stay again. Just off the highway, minutes from the West-O. The deck outside the lobby was great. Hope to be there again soon!

First Impressions: Everything looked new from the building to the driveway and parking lot. Great service, including suggestions on local to do's. While I know there were other people in the hotel, I could not tell from the noise, it was very quiet, clean and comfortable. Only slight negative, no elevator for 2nd floor so make sure if you have...
