Recent guest reviews

Came into town late and all the other nearby newer hotels was already booked. Rooms are dated no useful wall plug ins, but they were decently priced .

The room was so small. Said we had a queen bed but it was a full size bed but then I've been bait and switched like that before. When a hotel says queen size it is a full size bed. The room was clean and the breakfast was fine. I may stay there again or I may not... if I find a comprable price I will stay somewhere else

The hotel was as advertised. Close to the location I was visiting, and easy to find. The room was comfortable and clean. Very quiet location, very little traffic. The staff was polite and helpful with questions I presented them with. I would recommend this motel to a friend, and will gladly stay on my next visit.

I have stayed here several other times. The breakfast was not as complete as other times (no hot dishes except waffles). I do not like the light above the bed - it is glaring and the on/off switch is too far from the bed to reach comfortably. The evening desk person came to my room promptly to help set up my computer.

Great clean hotel. Value for your money... Thumbs up

I booked this hotel with very little research because I needed a place to overnight during a road trip. The location is good, right near the freeway and close to a gas station. The staff was friendly. The room was smaller but had a very cozy feel. The room design took obvious effort, and it was appreciated. The bed was very comfy, the room temperature was excellent, and very quiet (I'm a light sleeper). Overall I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a short stay.

The hotel was very clean and the staff/managers were amazing. Thank you.

friendly staff nice room -- weather was nice and warm -- room was nice and cool

This is close to great restaurants and a major highway. You can get anywhere quickly. I always stay here if I can because of the friendly staff and nice rooms.

Great facilities Good breakfast layout. . Nice rooms.

The room was small but it fit our needs. Every thing was clean and the room was comfortable. We just stopped for a night on the way to visit our grand daughter and this room was what we needed to get some rest before completing our journey.

Room was smallish yet well arranged with a closet with iron and ironing board and plenty of room to hang clothes. Cushioned window seat with drawer storage underneath was a great place to lay belongings or suitcase and a great use of space. Maybe a little pricey for budget conscious but rooms at a premium during fair week. Easy to find off the interstate.

Needs flat screen tvs, breakfast could have been better, missing a pool and laundry room.

Stayed because of a good price....hotel was much better than expected.

Very easy to get to from the interstate. The Staff was friendly, breakfast was fine and the room was clean. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I would definitely stay here again.

This motel was very clean and the staff was friendly. They had great suggestions for dining. The building was easy to get to from the interstate. Location was central if you are doing business in the Urbandale area.

We just stopped for quick night's sleep. Room was comfortable, and the hotel had a very good breakfast. Very easy access to the Interstate.

Small rooms, but great staff and well run hotel. Would definitely stay again. The mini lemon cupcakes at breakfast rocked my world :)

The hotel facility was fine. Our only problem was the maid staff. Their checkout time was 11:00am and we stayed there New Years Eve; so we planned to checkout at 11:00 since we didn't get back to the room until 2:00am. The maid started banging our room door at 10:00am as she vacuumed the hallway. Then she took the "Do not disturb" sign off our door at 10:50am as she knocked on the door to tell me we should be checked out at this time. I did inform the front desk about how we were treated by the maid staff.
