The Marina Inn Hotel and Conference Center

The Marina Inn and Conference Center sits on the banks of the Missouri River in South Sioux City, Nebraska and all specialty events will be held at this location with the exception of WC/WCX.

The IWSCA has reserved a block of 60 rooms from Tuesday night through Friday night. The bulk of these rooms open straight outside. We also have a smaller block reserved for Sunday and Monday. These rooms will be reserved exclusively for members with dogs. Should the block become full, the hotel will open another wing for us. Parking is complimentary for all registered guests.

RV/Campground Information

Scenic Park Campground

801 Riverview Drive

South Sioux City, NE 68776

(402) 494-7531/(712) 204-9658

This campground is open year round. The campground is located approximately 0.4 miles east (downriver) of the Marina Inn and Conference Center (about a 7 minute walk).

The 2017 Specialty Committee will not be coordinating campsite selections. The Campground Host will assist with available sites and services. Please let them know that you are with the Irish Water Spaniel Club. Some sites may be reserved, but most are on a first come, first served basis.

Additional information may be found HERE.

There is a one-time non-refundable room cleaning fee of $50 for those members with dogs staying in the inn. Please note that the club will be charged should late cancellations bring us under the guaranteed block of rooms. While we doubt there will be many and fully understand last minute emergencies, please do not wait until the last minute to cancel your reservation.

The Marina Inn accommodates guests with special needs, including rooms designed for wheel chairs. There are multiple elevators for guests not staying on the main floor.

The rooms are large and easily accommodate 2 queen beds (ideal for roommates) with room for crates as well. Most rooms also include refrigerators and microwaves. Both room service and Kahills have an excellent menu and are highly recommended!

Nightly Rate $109.00

To reserve a room, please call the hotel directly at (402) 494-4000 or (800) 798-7980 and say you are attending the IWSCA National Specialty. A credit card is required to guarantee reservations and guests are responsible for all charges.

We will be posting additional lodging options in the area soon!

Please Note: There is iron fencing running along the entirety of the hotel property. This fencing separates the property from the river. In late April, however, the river is often at flood stage--or at the very least very, very swift. The property features acres and acres of lawn for running your dogs and while leash laws exist, they are rarely enforced on hotel property. Please know your dogs and do not allow them to put themselves into danger by approaching the river. The strongest swimming IWS is no match for that current. My dogs could clear that fence; if yours can, use the utmost caution.
