Super 8 Grinnell

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

nice quick stop just off the highway
