This year our family decided to take the stress our of Thanksgiving and all get together at this resort. We rented two cabins, a one bedroom loft and a two bedroom two bath cabin. Both cabins were nicely appointed with wi fi, flat screen TV's and full kitchens. Both had a sleeper sofa and the one bedroom loft had a...

My daughter & I stayed here for a wedding. The resort looks very nice but that's where it ends. They seem to spend very little with maintenance & upkeep in the hotel. Not worth the price at all. One of the queen beds in our room was actually broken!! When you sat on it or laid down on it or...

Being Iowans we had wanted to visit this State operated resort since it opened, several years ago. This past weekend we finally made. The resort is situated in the Honey Creek state park, located in south central Iowa on the Army Corp of Engineers LAke Rathburn. At the main entrance we were greeted by a floor to ceiling stone fireplace...

I have stayed at Honey Creek at least 4 times now, The rooms are so nice and the beds are great. The inside water park is sweet. They even have a arcade room for kids and a food location canteen. I would recommend this location to anyone who has family and wants to stay in Iowa for a vacation.

We attended a wedding at the resort and also spent the night in the hotel. As a guest of the wedding we thought everything was perfect. The food, drink, and accommodations were top notch. We are definitely planning a long weekend to go back and take advantage of the beauty of the lake. They have beautiful trails to walk or...

We were here for three days for a family wedding, the staff were lovely very friendly and helpful considering they were quite busy they always took the time to say hello anything you need, as you were passing. The hotel rooms were clean and tidy and a good size, we had interconnecting rooms, no fridge but plenty of ice machines...

I gave it three stars because of the location and the views. This place has the the ability to be a five star resort but it does have some quirks that left me wondering who is managing the place. It started with making the reservations. I like to look online, then call in person because often one may be cheaper...

First of all, I am amazed that the State of Iowa must have spent an enormous chunk of taxpayer money building this resort as well as the hundreds of adjoining acres. Don't states have more important things to spend money on? My wife and I came here for an annual conference. Though we did get a group discount rate, both...

Conceptually, this is a great place. Unfortunately for the area, they fail to pull off a stay that is satisfying and comparable to the price paid. Good thing for them, there's zero competition. Mir you want to stay on the lake, this is it. In fact, the casino in Osceola is the only destination place I southern ia and it's...

We rented 2 4 bedroom cabins next door to each other for a family reunion. Enough space for all to gather, the bedrooms and baths were what you would expect at a nice hotel. Enjoyed the water park. It is small and geared for young children but still relaxing. Enjoyed dinner at the restaurant. Reasonable, good buffet. The lodge is...
