I'm not sure whether I would recommend this hotel or not. Room was updated, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful. Pool room needed repairs and updating. Black carpeting on stairs need vacuuming, it looked messy all three days we were there.

Was ok hotel. Thought beds would be softer for the price of the room but not as bad as a $60 room at other places. Breakfast was a disappointment. There was no coffee, eggs, or sausage when we went. I don't think it was the employee problem but rather a staffing problem as there was several people there the day we were. Overall is give 3 out of 5.

Cons: Accepting reservations.
They were overbooked so I did not stay there. They did make another reservation at another Motel at the same price so it worked out OK.

Excellent facility for the price

Pros: The lovely lady running the breakfast area was super sweet and friendly. Very quiet and comfortable room, and it was exceptionally clean.
Cons: The warmers in the breakfast buffet didn't seem to be keeping the food hot.
Location: Conveniently located close to interstate highway. We did not do anything besides sleep while traveling through.
Stayed here for a quick stop while traveling through. Chose this hotel because of the combination of price and other reviews. It's very clean, quiet and comfortable. We did have to heat up the sausage and eggs in the microwave, because they had gotten cold in the "heat" pans. Otherwise, this was a great value. All other hotels within 50 miles were either much more expensive with similar ratings, or were similarly priced but full of low ratings and horrific guest stories.

Convenient location close to Grinnell, IA.

Pros: The continental breakfast is a complete breakfast and has waffles, scrambled eggs, sausages, cereal, juice, milk, coffee, muffins, etc.
Cons: The cable TV system and remote control. Can't easily switch back and forth between 2 channels. There was no channel guide in the room.
I attended a local high school reunion, so stayed several days at this motel. Beds were made up each day and 4 large pillows placed on each bed. The continental breakfast is extensive and one of the best features of this motel. They also have a small indoor pool and an exercise room, which I did not use.

Nice place for a one night stay

Pros: close to the expressway and clean enough for a one night stay
Staff was very nice and helpful, rooms was fine for our one night stay, pool looked to be fine but enough to really invite you in. Fairly good selections in restaurants, close enough to the expressway.

Good Value

Pros: Quiet
Hotel rooms were clean and looked freshly painted. TV remote didn't work and there wasn't an accurate guide to the channels. Good value for the money.
