The hotel was extremely dirty, there was mold all over the grout. There was also pee and hair on the bathroom walls! The breakfast was a completely joke with hardly anything there. Everyone we talked was extremely nice and helpful. So the service was absolutely excellent. It was just super dirty and didn’t feel very safe.

The carpets are filthy, bed saggy, tiny ants in the room (easy chair & night stand), housekeeping a joke. We stayed 4 nights: didn't replace our coffee packets so we could make coffee the next morning, didn't replace styrofoam cups, wash cloths. Tile floor is broken in the bathroom and the subfloor mooshy. Liked the curved shower curtain so it's not blowing in on you. Coffee had run out at the breakfast room so I went to the front desk and she's sitting there on her cell phone. Understaffed, nobody at the desk when we were trying to check out. Receipt? Sorry, you went through Expedia, get it from them. No we didn't but not going to argue with her. Not going back next year!

Not a very clean place. Owner was pleasant. Stayed 4 nights. Had clean towels brought once. Beds "made" once. Staff left our door open. Guest was laying in hallway eating dinner around 11:00 p.m. Smelled like vomit next morning. Not a lot of options in Grinnell but I would choose somewhere other than here

This place was a mess the staircase didn't look like it had been vacuumed for months ,the bathtubs in the rooms were chipped and dirty, I found one pillow on the floor behind the desk in the room . The air and the TV weren't working we check in but the desk clerk did come right up to our rooms and took care of that and when he couldn't fix the TV in the other room we had he gave them a different room. The pool area was awful while the pool it self was clean , it was very cold but the pool area was very much a awful mess and not at all inviting to go sit in . The breakfast area could use a lot of attention also not done very well at all. I will say the saving grace of the place was the beds they were really great and also the pillows were good too. I did get a good nights sleep there it was nice and quite at night , but the place does need some work put into it.

bathroom ceiling has what looks like black mold. Hole in wall by vanity

If one books into a Super 8 one knows what to expect. In this one, the prices were reasonable, the room was comfortable, and the breakfast (I never eat a large breakfast) was adequate for me. The managers and other staff members were extremely pleasant and welcoming.

Room smelt damp. Killed two bugs. I would not stay here again. Had a used towel hanging on the bathroom door.

We have stayed there on 3 different occasions, and find it is a great value for the price.

Terrible wore out king size bed. Tub had a very dirty ring around it. Breakfast didn't even have bananas, nothing but carbs.

We stayed here during NSO at Grinnell College. Upon entering room there was a strong smell of mold and must. The host/manager graciously put us in another room, but it too smelled musty and moldy. The room was clean but the fixtures, especially the bathtub were in need of repair.

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.

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!

Overall, my stay at this motel was positive. Truly a very good value.

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!

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.

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.

The hotel was quiet.
