Nice, Clean Hotel for the price

The hotel was very nice. The staff was ok. Breakfast was average. The only thing we were not impressed with was the bed....too hard.

Decent short term stay for the price

Most of the staff were friendly and helpful. Would have been helpful if the staff ar check in were knowledgeable about directions to local communities. Decent hot breakfast.

Nice Stay

The pool wasn't closed for maintenance, but the water was cool, because it was under maintenance. They posted a warning sign.

I'd stay here againg

Rooms were looked updated and clean. Minor discoloration of the wallpaper in the bathroom, but the was my only complaint. Others the staff was very helpful, I received a call to my room from the front desk 10 minutes after check-in just to make sure I was satisfied with my room. Nice room for a competitive price.

Good but loud heaters

I went to Grinnell to Find out if the college was a good fit for my son. he accommodations were fine - except for a noisy heater. I used the exercise room which had a spinning machine , a tread mill and a stair master.
