We had to go to Clear Lake to visit my husband's family and most of the hotel options in the area looked a bit daunting. We are normally Hilton family stayers but the Hampton Inn had not yet opened. This hotel was perfect for what we needed. Very clean, extremely comfortable beds, seemed to be fairly new and definitely well...

My husband and I elected to stay at this hotel due to a wedding in town. We brought our daughter as well. Due to waiting to the last minute, room choice was limited. On a bright note, we booked the king suite. My daughter was hesitant to sleep on the couch hide-a-bed, but once we pulled it out she was...

The employees were all helpful and courteous, the rooms were comfortable and nicely kept up and clean, the beds were comfortable, the breakfast was very good compared to other free continental breakfasts. The only problem we had was the outlet in the bathroom did not work, and they offered to move us to a different room right away. There are...

A fairly new property and the well located on Mason City's west side, the Holiday Inn Express & Suites has become my location of choice when visiting family in MC. Based on the city and the price, the rooms are better than what you might get elsewhere. No 5-star amenities but well sized, very clean and very comfortable rooms. What...

Like most Holiday Inn Express properties, this one was clean, comfortable, no surprises. Staff was friendly and attentive, fitness center was adequately equipped and breakfast was the standard fare. If you're staying in the Mason City area, no worries staying here.

While the staff was good and breakfast ok... The beds were horrible. I woke up both days with my arms asleep because the beds were so hard. The bed coverings were like sheets not comforters so I had to take blankets from both beds to feel like I was covered adequately. The hotel was accommodating and took care of us...

Front desk staff was very friendly. Check in was quick. Decent breakfast like other HI Express locations. Hotel interior/exterior and rooms were in excellent condition. Only wish they had a hot tub! Enjoyed getting a newspaper daily.

Like new motel that is clean and comfortable. Attractive. Everything is in good repair. Bath and Body lotions and potions. Nice breakfast area with a wide variety of breakfast items including protein choices, and their famous cinnamon rolls. Pleasant staff throughout. Convenient location.
