Nice hotel close to the Bridges of Madison County

Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing at all
Location: We visited The Bridges of Madison County and John Wayne's childhood home! Everyone was friendly in the town of Winterset.
It is a small hotel with a big heart! Bill greeted my girlfriends & I like old friends! He was hospitable, funny, & helpful! He even checked on us that evening when we were sitting outside!!

Perfect place for a good nights sleep.

This cozy hotel is located off of the beaten path and on the way to one of the covered bridges. It's easy to get to and tucked away for a quiet nights sleep. The bed was great and the bathroom was spotless. The host at the front desk was very friendly and we'll stay there again!

Thank you for taking the time to review our motel, your kind words are much appreciated. Our head housekeeper, Karma, will enjoy hearing this! She has been with us for 6 years and takes great pride in her work. Thank you.

Nice staff, not so clean room

Pros: Staff, breakfast was ok.
Cons: cleanliness!!! I will be back, but won't be staying here.
Location: Location was good. Out of the way. Winterset has tons of things to do. Would make a beautiful fall trip when the leaves are turning...Will be back
The staff was very nice. The room overall was....ok, but the bathroom was nasty. Mold all over the floor around the grout and wall. No excuse for this. Takes a little bleach and it would be taken care of. Too bad as, like I said, the staff was very nice.
