breakfast was terrible and wasn't being manned had to go to the front desk and tell them items were out multiple times (coffee, silverware, waffle batter etc) and each time i went I would get the why you bothering me look as I would have to ring the bell for service as they were hiding in the back office.

Nice place to open a motel

Pros: Location, although there are several motels in the area, the price was right.
Cons: Cleaning
Location: I was there for a reunion with family. My Grandparents and parents lived in this area for many years.
The hotel does not have an elevator and I was given a room in the adjacent building to the main building on the 4th floor. Very difficult to climb stairs and carry luggage. The steps were carpeted and very dirty. I mentioned this to the desk clerk and she said they were in the process of updating and it was very difficult to keep everything clean. I was there four days and the steps were not vacuumed during that time. My room needed vacuumed and was not done during my stay. The bathroom floor was not clean, and had the usual hair in the corners. I did receive clean towels daily and my bed was made. Needless to say, I was only in my room for sleeping so was able to overlook the lack of cleanliness. Residents of Grinnell mentioned to me that the motel used the renovation excuse on a regular basis for their lack of upkeep. Seems renovations have been going on for years.

Bad Experience

Our room was not ready when we checked in. Apparently, in their haste to get the room ready for us they saved time by not changing the sheets from the previous occupants. When we were ready to retire for the night, we turned back the bed to find several piles of used tissue in the bed. No one answered the phone at the front desk so I walked down there to find the desk clerk sound asleep on the couch. I found the laundry room, helped myself to clean bedding and we remade the bed ourselves. The manager was supposed to come in and speak to us the next day but we never did see her. They told us they would "adjust our bill" but would only take $* f.

smelly but serviceable

Our nonsmoking room and the hallway outside were thick with the artificial smell of air freshener and stale smoke. But the breakfast was nice and the staff friendly. I might say the place is okay for one night, but why?

Worst hotel ever!!!

We reserved a 2 night stay online at this hotel. When we checked in, everything was fine. The next day when we arrived back at the hotel, all of our belongings were thrown in trash bags as if we were criminals. They broke my husbands Ray Ban sunglasses, threw my daughters pageant clothes in with an open gel bottle and cold items from the fridge. Somehow the hotel canceled our second night at the hotel. The hotel said that they were sorry and that was the best they could do. I will NEVER go back to this hotel and if you are considering staying there, I would think twice.
