"Arrowwood Resort"
Excellent staff! The team at Arrowwood was awesome! The hotel itself was a bit dated and the AC, though it cooled the room well, could not be adjusted not to blow directly onto the person sleeping in the first bed. Also it would be nice to have some spare supplies in the room as we ran out of toiletries. Overall a nice place with an excellent restaurant on location. And at a reasonable price.

"Lack of cleanliness"
The hotel needs to focus on its cleaning staff. They were training in "interns" and the room cleaning was poor. Their signature restaurant "Minerva's" is one of the main reasons I stay there.

The pool was great, the room was great. I loved the sliding door, however the handle came off due to loose screws. The continental breakfast skipped a couple continents. But overall we really enjoyed our stay very much!

"Appears ok, but dig a little deeper."
On first inspection the hotel seemed great. The room appeared to be clean and tidy. I settled in to wait for my husband to arrive. We ordered in dinner that night and since it was Mexican food we wanted to rid the room of the smell and thought by putting the trash in the bathroom it would help with that until housekeeping could come and dispose of it. Come to find out, the bathroom fan was not working. Then we realized that a vanity lightbulb was burned out leaving the sink area a bit darker than normal. Finally it was bedtime. I get ready to crawl into bed to find that the sheets are all tangled underneath the nicely made bed and that the mattress pad cover was exposed and completely torn apart! The front desk lady came and changed the bed right away and apologized. She said she would let the GM know and would have them contact me in the next couple of days (we stayed 2 nights). Our stay was on Fri-Sun, it is Tuesday and I still have not heard a word from them.

"Nice people/location. Rooms starting to show age"
Good place to stay and nice restaurant, especially nice to have during cold months. However, the rooms are starting to age (I.e. even had a telephone that didn't work) and the decor is staring to look old. They along time ago had an amazing workout facility. Now it's just crammed we into a very tiny room without even water. If they made some simple improvements in facility it would make a big difference

"Beautiful place to stay."
When we arrived our room had not been cleaned from the night before's guest. A quick call to the front desk solved the issue: they had housekeeping come up right away while we were offered free drinks in the hotel bar while we waited. It took less then 20 minutes to get it cleaned.

"Can't complain too much"
Price was right, location was actually excellent for not being on the lake. Service was less than I normally expect but not horrible. My biggest complaint was the lack of wifi they promised. I tried my laptop, Windows Surface and my smart phone and none of them could connect - but the desk clerk said it was working fine for them the whole time. No additional support was provided/offered. That was my biggest hangup with this place - that's what kept it from getting a better rating. Its definitely NOT a 5 star hotel. Four stars would be pushing it... if only they could just step it up a notch in customer service and facility (exterior) cleanliness.

"Thought it was by the lake..."
It was ok. We somehow had the impression that this was on the water, so we were disappointed to arrive and find out its not. We had to call and ask for an iron - there wasn't one in our room. Very loud noise in the middle of the night from neighbors right above us - for about an hour. Lots of stomping, laughing, partying. We stopped at the bar for a drink before heading out to dinner - the bartender didn't acknowledge us at first (we were sitting right at the bar and there was nobody else there)... and when he finally did take our drink order he brought us the wrong thing. So overall we were not too impressed with this place. If it had been any one of those things, probably not a big deal. But all of it together made us rather disappointed.

"Disappointed"
Older facility that is overpriced. New resort on the water close to this hotel is one-half the price. Told pets not allowed but when we arrived saw guests with pets. Excuse was they had pest issues so decided not to allow pets ... those guests with pets must have checked in prior to us? Hotel cleaning staff used our bathroom and did not flush the toilet! Would not stay again. If only place available I would cancel my vacation plans.

"Find a better option"
hotel was ok. I elected the "pay in advance" option but when I checked out the hotel had billed my credit card. 4 phone calls later, I am still waiting for a solution. They hotel staff admitted to the mistake but has yet to fix their error. The room was ok as was the room service dinner. Unfortunately, the hotel is showing several decades of limited investments and repair. The room smelled & they cleaning staff could invest a bit more time in the room.

"Not very clean or well maintained"
My husband were at the hotel one night and arrived about 10:30 at night. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. When we got settled into our room, I pulled back the comforter and the sheet was pulled back on one side of the bed. I wasn't sure if the maid service overlooked it when they made the bed or if a previous guest had occupied the bed and had just pulled the covers back over the sheet and the maid service hadn't bothered to check it. It was a creepy feeling. The tub drained very slowly and in the course of taking a shower the water got ankle deep. There were partiers traipsing down the hall rather loudly in the wee hours of the morning. The breakfast was good but not exceptional. All in all, I will find another place to stay next time we are in Okoboji.

"Dissappointing Stay"
The hotel lobby was great along with Minervas the Bar and Restaurant. My room on my first stay was average at best. My 2nd and 3rd stays required and upgrade in service. The bed did not get made up daily, shampoo and conditioner not replenished, never vacuumed, and my bathroom ceiling had mildew along with the bottom of the bathtub was stained from a previous matting. I would recommend staying at the Americinn or the Ramada if you have to stay in the Spirit Lake area and eat at Minervas. Also on my 2nd and 3rd stays they did not have my room booked correct. The one instance they could not find the booking at all, and the other they had me booked for 2 rooms instead of one for more nights than I had reserved.

"They listened to my complaint & took care of it."
I'm hyper-sensitive to smells, odors, & any thing airborne. After checking in, I noticed a strong odor centered around the bathroom area. I reported it right away, saying I didn't know if it was the cleaning products or a deodorizing spray (I saw no automatic deodorizers in the room). They told me it was a deodorizing spray used after cleaning the bathroom. They contacted the cleaning staff so that it was not used in our room during our stay. Most people would have thought the smell was pleasant but for me it triggered severe head pain. They were so nice & prompt about fixing my problem. I really appreciated it.

"Ok, but would not be my first choice."
Looks much better on the website than in person. Rehabed older property that needs a lot of work to really bring it into competition with current hotels. Toilet needed completely reset and the seat tightened. No restaurant, skimpy "continental" breakfast. Front desk was nice upon arrival and a different staff member was indifferent to my departure.

"not as clean as I'd like"
This is a convenient location, however the overall sense of this hotel is that it is in need of updating, renovations and cleaning! Our bathroom ceiling was covered with mildew and the room smelled. Housekeeping didn't come at all our first day and did a poor job the second day - just pulling up the sheets, not touching the bottom sheet at all. Our room faced Hwy 71 and was noisy. The first morning we woke and went to open our sliding glass door and realized that it was unlocked with the security bar not engaged either. Yikes!

The staff was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, during our entire stay the "hotel rooms" section of the hotel had a VERY unpleasant odor. Carpeting was very worn and stained. Tiles missing on the ceiling. It rained and the ceiling in the hallway was leaking in several places. Continental breakfast was nice... fresh fruit, cereals, waffles, etc.

Everything about our stay was excellent except the breakfast. We were there at 8:30 a.m. and there was virtually no food to choose from. Very disappointed in this. We had planned on eating there before leaving to go to the funeral we were in town for, so that left no time to go elsewhere for a meal.

"Not the hotel is was five years ago."
Check-in was efficient. First room experience was that stool was stopped up but maintenance came promptly. Air conditioner/wall heater didn't function. Maintenance got the fan to run but it quit about five minutes after he left. Room was very warm most of the night. Stool continues to flush very slowly but did work. Restaurant: Waited about 15 minutes for service to place order. Ordered medium steak: was bloody all the way through. Had to wait about ten minutes to get waitress's attention to recook steak. Was recooked correctly to just a red center. Steak literally was almost flavorless. Reasonably tender but no taste. Then had to wait almost 15 minutes after giving credit card to waiter for her to return. Asked for a late check out and was told absolutely not had to be out by 11:00, normal check out time. Next morning, asked new person behind desk and was told late checkout would be just fine. All in all, nice hotel but definite issues with training and attention to detail by staff. Could have had much better service for much less elsewhere. Won't be staying there again.

"Hotel said our reservation had been cancelled."
When we arrived, the hotel claimed that our reservation had been cancelled by hotels.com. We showed them our paperwork and they put us in lesser rooms than we had expected (two rooms downstairs instead of an upstairs suite). The two rooms were adequate, but again, not deluxe rooms as promised. I do not think it likely that hotels.com cancelled out reservation since we received numerous e-mails from hotels,com (including one on 9/11) about our upcoming trip to Arrowwood. This property is in an excellent location surrounded by a golf course,and the on-site restarurant is very good. With a bit more effort, this could be a first-class destination resort.
