Our Story

Founded by owner and creator, Jim H. Thompson in 1994 with the original concept of a northwoods themed hotel that provided the feeling of more than just a guest room. Since that original dream, 2 Stoney Creek Inn properties, 11 Stoney Creek Hotel & Conference Center properties, a Grand Lodge Hotel, and Historic Park Inn, the only Frank Lloyd Wright designed and built hotel, make up a total 14 locations spanning five Midwestern states. The environment and culture at each location is one of "People First."

Our Vision & Values

Our vision is to become the most loved select service hotel in the Nation. Our purpose is to provide an exceptionally personal home away from home experience to all that we serve. We believe in the purpose of work. We deliver outrageous service while working hard and desiring to be the best. We create fun in our environments and try not to take ourselves too seriously. We teach and lead with a servant attitude building open and honest relationships through good communication. We strive for positivity and the want to inspire others. We are believers in embracing and driving change in all that we do. Our expectation for accountability and a passion for results is what we know.


We believe in our people and our guests.
