Recent guest reviews

This comfortable hotel was easy to find and had several fast food options in town. It is a quiet, affordable, overnight stop, and provides a nice break from the road.

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.

the staff was friendly and helpful, with good advice about the town. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet

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.

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

We had a lovely stay! The staff was very supportive, breakfast options were great, and our room was very clean and comfortable. We would stay here again.

Staff was great, hotel was clean. We had two other rooms. all three room indicated they slept terribly because of the pillows. Seems like an easy fix

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.

Fire Alarm repeatly going off

We were at a meeting in Grinnell and didn't get a lot of time at the motel. The only problem we found was that there was no coffee in the breakfast room and the orange juice was also gone until we called their attention to this. Everything else was fine.

The hotel was located in a small town and was quiet and clean. [...]

Was told that we would have Microwave and fridge in both of our rooms to find we only had it in one of our rooms and one room had oped used shampoo, conditioner, and soap in our room when we entered out room :(

Pleasant staff and good breakfast choices.

The Hotel didn't have a non-smoking room as asked for so they did a great job of making a room fresh as if no one had ever smoked in it before. As for anything else it didn't seem much different from the rest of the Hotels weve stayed in.
