The Super 8 property is conveniently located off of Exit 193 on I-35. The easy on/off access ramp makes this property THE place to stay in Clear Lake Iowa. When you stay at our Clear Lake hotel, make sure to drive two miles to visit the famous Surf Ballroom, where rock and roll legends Buddy Holly, the Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens played their final set. In addition to hosting shows and events, the ballroom now houses the Buddy Holly Museum. You can also see the site of the tragic plane crash that claimed the lives of these music icons, or take part in annual Buddy Holly Memorial events, held each February. Get lost in the Fort Custer Maze, less than a block from our Clear Lake hotel. If you love the outdoors, Clear Lake has much to offer, including great boating and fishing. Enter the annual Walleye Fishing Competition or take a cruise on the old-time paddleboat, Lady of the Lake.
