a bit disapointed

Pros: Old world charm good bar
Cons: bigger rooms
Location: Great location as we were doing things downtown
Very loud next door neighbors walls are this so we heard every word for hours. Rooms are lovely (old) but very small. Glad we tried it there but other hotels better value

A Stormy night in Decorah

Pros: Always charming, wonderful lobby, and a staff concerned about the inconvience of the storm.
Cons: They need to work on the air conditioning. Room 131 should be out of service or redone.
Location: Upper Iowa River, canoeing, biking, great outdoors town.
Huge thunderstorm knocked out power for several hours. The air conditioning was compromised and our room was warm. Never stay in Room 131. Off the lobby, out of sight and a bit dirty. We like the Hotel Winn but this stay fell short of what we have come to expect.

Large comfortable room, quiet location

Everything was fine at the Winneshiek. The room was surprisingly large, The hotel was clean, the parking was plentiful and free, and the breakfast was ok. Common areas are elegant. It was quiet and comfortable and we slept well. Minor nits: would have preferred fruit with the breakfast. Didn't care for the plastic-flowers-in-window-boxes decoration.
