“Make sure your room is ACTUALLY non-smoking”
Reviewed 15 August 2011

We stayed here for a family reunion. Clean rooms, great breakfast, and they let us use the conference room for our family gatherings.

However, we requested a non-smoking room and when we checked in, our room definitely had a strong cigarette smell. We informed the front desk, and they said the room used to be a smoking room, but they converted them last year with new furniture/paint/carpet.

Apparently that isn't enough because it smelled awful and there were no other rooms for us to transfer to. We dealt with it, but I could see the bothering someone with allergies.

We appreciate you took the time to offer us your comments regarding your experience with us at the AmericInn of Okoboji. We are pleased to see that you found your room to be clean, enjoyed our free breakfast, and were able to take advantage of the use of our conference room for your family gatherings. I would like to apologize that you experienced a smoke odor in our recently renovated guest rooms. We are a 100% non-smoking facility. It is unfortunate if a past guest chooses to smoke in our smoke free environment. We will research this to make certain to remedy the situation, so it does not recur in the future. Thank you for choosing the AmericInn of Okoboji. We look forward to extending our hospitality to you during your future visits to Okoboji.

We stayed 2 nights at the Americain in Okoboji. The hotel is adjacent to a golf course so it was very quiet and conveniently located between all of the activities and sights we wanted to see. The room was clean, the staff pleasant and the "make your own" waffle breakfast a nice treat. I would definately go back here again. The one and only negative I can think of is that the 2 story hotel does not have an elevator. A bit of an effort to pull your luggage up a flight of stairs.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the golf course. If stairs are an issue get a room on the 1st floor. No elevator.

I have stayed here many times. The staff continues to impress with their attention to detail. The location puts you right in the middle of the Iowa Great Lakes and all of the attractions. I am usually on business when I stay here, but may consider bringing my family on my next stay here.

Room Tip: Golf course side of the property has small deck/patio area.

Great location by Brooks Golf Course and many excellent restaurants like Minerva's, Tweeters, and Maxwells. Very close to the bridge that separates East from West Okoboji. Close to Okoboji Boats and Parks Marina (Boat rentals and excursions) and Offarell Sisters (best breakfast and lunch in town).

Room Tip: Ask for room facing golf course/green space-you will then get a deck or patio

I travel a lot and I'm always pleased when I know I'm going to be heading up to the northwest part of Iowa.It's like going to my second home and not leaving my original home.The staff and management are all great people and they great you by name and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.I use to stay at some different hotels in the area and since the AmericInn came along,I don't even shop.The only reason I didn't give an excellent for value is because during the summer months,the pricing gets a little high but I do understand it.A lot of tourists visit during that time and get what the market will bear.Everything you need if not here,it's location is perfect that everything is close by,even walking distance.It's the only place to stay!!!

Room Tip: Treat the staff as nice as they treat you!!!
