Places to Stay

Storm Lake, like many regional towns, saw its first boom in the mid-1800s. The county that surrounds it and the University that calls it home take their names from the Battle of Buena Vista (fought Feb 23, 1847) in the Mexican-American War. Since its beginnings, the city has grown with the times, while the tree-lined streets, downtown architecture, and Victorian homes still recall much of the style of the decades following the city’s founding.

Whether you’re visiting Storm Lake just for a night, decide to study here for four years, or make it your home for longer, there are many comfortable places to stay. For short-term stays, the city has national chain hotels and family-run establishments. Among the most elaborate is King’s Pointe, the full-service resort and waterpark.
