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...

I have been staying at this hotel off and on for the past few months and reserve the meeting room on occasion. The staff and management team are always wonderful and pleasant. Beds are warm and comfy and the breakfast area is always cleaned and well stocked in the mornings.

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.

This must be a fairly new property or just had an update. The room was very clean and the carpet was plush as I've seen in a hotel room. I also noticed this in the hallway, the luggage was pulling harder than usual. Staff was great and the room was quiet on the top floor.

A clean, quiet stay. We enjoyed the breakfast choices. The Prime N Wine across the street (but not walkable) had a nice menu selection. We had hoped to stay here a second time on this trip, but we did not plan ahead and they were fully booked on that day. This will be our first choice on future visits to...
