Great welcome to Grinnell

My daughter and I were visiting Grinnell College and decided to stay at this hotel because of location and dollar value. Laurie was very welcoming and helped us get settled in. Thank you for a great stay in Grinnell.

Quick weekend away

Our family of three stayed here 2 nights on a quick getaway to meet friends. We've been here before but stayed in King Suite this time. Large room but dated. Paint in need of serious updating. Also suites in 2nd building so have to cross parking lot to get to pool and breakfast room. Decent value but needs some updating. Also hallway/foyer of 2nd building smelled strongly of cat litter. I believe this may have been one of the guests dumping in the common trash bin. Should have been cleaned out faster.

This was my second time staying at the Best Western in Grinnell. I was pleased with the room - it was clean and comfortable. The staff members were very friendly and helpful. The location is convenient to Grinnell College and Walmart.

Clean and comfortable

Nice setting, good breakfast, nicely-appointed room. The only complaints are my own pet peeves - it could be quieter (I can hear conversations and the TV in the next room, people walking in the hall and doors slamming) and the cooling unit fan shuts off - I prefer a unit whose fan runs constantly - helps mask outside noises and does not wake you up every time it kicks on.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

This is small-town Iowa at its best - there is rich history to be found, but don't expect much in the way of entertainment, fine dining, or shopping - there is a WalMart and Theisens down the road.

Great stay for state fair

A very pleasant stay for us on the way back from the Iowa State Fair.. It was a very convenient location, far enough from Des Moines, but not that far to drive. Great that it was that close to the interstate. Staff was very friendly and helpful even with our late arrival. The breakfast was appreciated since we could just get back on the road without stopping elsewhere.

Great family vacation

Very clean and comfortable rooms. Excellent amenities including the free wifi, flat screen TVs and DVD players in room. Kids loved the pool and hot tub. The complimentary breakfast was good but nothing special. The rates were just right for our short stay.

Fantastic Bargain

The Best Western Pioneer Inn has everything you need for an overnight stay - workout room; pool and hot tub; full, warm breakfast; even cheap soda machines! The beds were fluffy and everything looked relatively new. The only thing missing was a TV guide and a view. The staff was friendly; I will definitely be staying here every time I visit my daughter in college.
