We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn in Mason City, Iowa because we were in town for a wedding. I have always been pleased with the Holiday Inn hotels that I have stayed in, but this one fell a bit below my expectations. Even though the website stated that their rooms were recently renovated (in 2004) – the room we were in didn’t seem like it. The door had to be shoved shut each time we opened it. The room felt very cramped and I didn’t like the layout.
The other areas of the hotel also seemed a bit out of date. There was a pool that appeared to be partially under construction and some oddly placed meeting areas.
There were some good things – the staff was all very kind and helpful, the rooms were very clean, and the check-in/check-out process was very quick and easy. This hotel was also very easy to get to from the highway and was conveniently located near to a wide variety of stores.
