Let me first say I've stayed at this property back when it was an Amerihost Inn and through the years that it was Baymont. How things change. Their website shows a rate of $99, called them directly to make the reservation and they said it was $109, plus tax and they did not accept any discounts we had, so $109... More

Rude staff! Rude owner- yes I had a conversation with him over the phone! Stains all over the floor, furniture and bedding. Had a room with a hot tub. Tried to use the hot tub and had water running down from the ceiling!

Reservations (for 2 rooms with king beds) were made 2 days prior to planned stay at hotel, however, upon arrival the reservations weren't the same as confirmed when making the reservation. We were told they only had 1 room with a king bed and 1 room with double beds. This was very inconvenient. Also upon arrival, the rooms weren't very... More

Pool closed--disappointing and yet charged full price. Back outside door was taped to stay unlocked--did not feel secure. I recommend looking to stay elsewhere if visiting Storm Lake. The location is convenient but that is the only plus.

Price was terrible $159.00 but was " last room available". A/C doesn't work, pool full of green mold, electrical outlets hanging out of wall, tub jets falling out of tub. Had to move out of " the last room" b/c there was no lock mechanism on door. Absolutely worst hotel I've ever stayed at. Smoke detectors unhooked.

First off, when booking our rooms we were not informed of the indoor pool not being available. This was a big reason for staying in this hotel. They did upgrade our rooms for the inconvenience. Wallpaper was peeling from the ceiling, large bleach spot on the carpet, and whirlpool tub jets didn't function properly and the knob for the timer... More

We were extremely upset with our experience at the Buena Vista Inn & Suites. We had a suite reserved and called the hotel around 3:00pm to tell them that we would be arriving later in the day, but that we were coming. The woman's response was "It's no problem, as long as you get here before midnight." We did get... More
