Of the 8 emails asking them to change the reservation; not one response, NOT ONE! Not to mention the numerous phone calls that went into a phone loop similar to AT&T's phone loops in the early 1990's. As...

We were very displeased with the rooms for the amount of money they cost. Unless you have your own kayak, boat or paddle board you have to go somewhere else to rent them. There is no beach. The pool is falling apart and like most of the buildings it is run down. Will definitely never stay here again! Highly don't...

I am so sorry to hear that you had a bad experience. Okoboji Boat works own the docks at our resort. If you contact them they will deliver any type of watercraft right to the dock.

Lakefront Okoboji, especially for Fourth of July is unbeatable. Yes, some of the rooms are dated but very clean and comfortable. Staff is accommodating as well. Be sure to eat at the restaurant the food was great!

We were there for a family reunion and had five poolside rooms for a week. (That's a lot of money to be made by the Inn.) The first night there, Lyda, who said she was with management, came to us, in front of all the people poolside, and scolded us for having pizza on the picnic table. She said no...
