We stopped over in Amana, IA and stayed at this hotel on August 28, 2013. This is a "Mom & Pop" type hotel. Good sized rooms, very clean, good internet, reasonable rates ($70 including tax) and very comfortable beds. Coffee every morning, but hotel has no breakfast. However, there are three very good reasonable priced restaurants in Amana that serve... More

Our first stay at the Guest House, and having read the reviews weren't sure what to expect. Staff was wonderfully helpful and friendly. The room (we were in #1) was larger than expected and we did have a table and two chairs. The toiletries are basic, soap and a shampoo, but don't we mostly bring our own anyway? Only complaints...

I've stayed at the Guest House Motel twice now, and both times I have found to be a simple, yet satisfying stay while in the Amana Colonies. The location can't be beat -- just down the road from the Colony Inn (the best of the traditional Amana restaurants, in my opinion) and my other favorite place, Millstream Brewing Company. I... More

This is a basic motel in a fantastic location with terrific service. When I needed extra pillows "no problem!" When we needed better reception "no problem." The rooms are clean and functional. The location is absolutely charming. The service is old-school in the best way. They do need to do some dehumidifying in the first floor rooms in the Sandstone... More

We stayed here in early June and it was almost empty. Might not be the case later in the summer. Very quiet. Very clean. Terrible lighting and no table for playing Skip-Bo w/ my 84 yo mom. We were on the first floor, but the stairs were a bit difficult for mom to negotiate. Still, nice location in the middle... More

Fiancee and I got a cheap rate because the room was bundled with a wine package, but... Bedside lamp had a short in it and was unsafe. No in-room coffee, fridge or microwave. The sheets, blankets and towels were so rough they could all be used to exfoliate your skin. Overall lighting was dim and the only piece of "art"... More

This motel is owned by a very nice and accommodating couple. We usually stay at Comfort Inn but I quite enjoyed this place. We are used to hair dryers in our room-they had one for us to use just for the asking. A friendly face and fresh, hot coffee was waiting in the lobby when we woke up. I love... More

Amana, Iowa is halfway between our hometown and that of my mom and brother. Decided to meet there for a holiday weekend. Chose the Guest Haus because of the location. It was basic but clean. Office staff was friendly. No refrigerator or coffeemaker in the room so needed to take a few steps outside to get to the office for... More

If you come to this motel, do not expect the amenities of a boutique hotel. Amana is small town rural Iowa. The motel is clean and the room was large with two queen beds and a table and chairs. The bathroom was clean and well stocked with towels etc. There is coffee in the lobby. The front desk staff was... More

In the midst of this lovely community, this place has the drabness of a jail. There was only one picture in the whole room. There's no coffee maker; the cheapest of toilet paper and facial tissues like sandpaper; no towel bars (I had to hang my washcloth and towel on a hanger); the light bulb was out in one of... More
