Not what we hoped for

2 night stay in hot humid IA. Pool was closed with the area stacked full of stuff. First room had no microwave or refrigerator. Room speed like rotting grass. Second room had ref and microwave. With air conditioner on high, carpet and our clothes felt wet due to humidity. I never write bad reviews but this was not what we expected and will not return.

nice quick stop just off the highway

Pretty good. Cleaner than other hotels in this price range. Breakfast was ok, but slightly disappointing as they said they had waffles, and I was expecting the kind that you pour the batter in, but it was premade little toaster waffles. Still ok though!

Staff makes the difference

For the price, it was a good deal. The pool and room were clean, the staff who took care of me when I checked in and helped resolve an issue with my card the next day were great. They understood the reason for it, and were working on correcting it while apologizing before I could say anything else. The location and price were just what I needed!

Pizza Ranch is good pizza in a buffet not a mile north of the hotel. The steak place across the street was very busy. A great little bakery in downtown Grinnell has yummy donuts.

Decent hotel for price

This hotel was good for the price. I was a little scared off from seeing reviews about mice. During our stay there were no signs of mice or bugs anywhere, was clean fromw what I could see. Hotel was a little run down but again was decent for the price. Breakfast was standard with cereal, waffles, juice and toast. Overall I would stay here again if I was in the area.

not so gr8

The romm on the first floor had so much mold we moved to the second floor so that my wife wouldn't get an upper respritory infection. The breakfast left much to be desired.
