We had a wonderful staying here! Our room was very spacious and clean. The kids loved the waterpark! The pools were both warm and clean. The slides, lazy river and kiddy pool features were perfect for our kids (ages 2,4,6,7,9) and provided endless fun. Some of the lifeguards were pretty distracted, no one topping the slides, and poor scanning of...

Went here for a little extended family get a way on a Saturday afternoon/night.

We enjoyed our stay. All the hotel, restaurant, and water park staff were very friendly and courteous. The slides were perfect for our 6 year old who loved every minute. We felt like the hotel was very nice at one time, but more maintenance could be kept up on. The elevator on one side of the hotel was not operational....

We stayed one evening on a trip from ND to IA. My children loved the 2 waterslides. They had single or double tubes and it was a really fun time for kids aged 4 and 8. There is also a splash pad area and a traditional pool with basketball hoops in it.

On a recent business trip I stayed at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites. It is on my companies' preferred hotel list. Clean, quiet comfortable rooms. The front desk clerks were friendly and helpful. I know they have a pool but did not have time to swim

Took the family up for an overnight on a Thursday. Checked in at 4, room was clean and up to date. The water park area was nice, clean and staffed. Spa jets were not working. Fitness center is what you would expect. Overall a nice place to stay with a friendly staff.

Took daughter, son-in-law and two grandkids (6, 9) to the county fair and stayed at the Holiday Inn. The suite was spacious (not much of a view, but that's not what we were there for.
