The Celebrity Inn is like a restored classic car. The style may be old but the feelings it resurrects are priceless! From the nostalgic chrome tissue box holder to the beautiful paneled walled room. All this with updated amenities, Wi-Fi, cable TV etc.. The owners are awesome down to earth people that make you feel at home. My wife is... More

Or it didn't all go down. Clean enough, bed was ok, pillows were good for one night, staying longer, bring your own. Was in as good of shape as grandma's house, way friendlier than Grandma, left a key out for our late arrival.

Due to a death in our family I had to find a group of rooms for several out of town members of our family. I came across the Celebrity hotel and after speaking to the owner Roger booked the rooms. What I found was a big relief, the rooms were very clean, comfortable, quiet, and warm on these cold January... More

A nice, clean inexpensive motel. What a pleasant surprise. The beds were comfy and the place was very clean. The price was very inexpensive. The management was very friendly and helpful. We were so happy we found it. They are pet friendly and welcomed our two small dogs with no extra fees. If you want fancy this one won't be... More

Beware of the changing prices for this motel. I booked here during the Glenn Miller Festival at which my daughter was competing in the scholarship competition and (stupid me) didn't even think to double check on the room price. It never even occurred to me that during the festival the motel would inflate their usual rate so substantially. I paid... More

We are sorry that you felt you were "price gouged" we raise our rates only one time a year which is for the glenn miller festival, which we raise them $30 is all.. WE donate most of the funds back to the Clarinda chamber of commerce, for improvements to our wonderful little town, and it's festivals. Most motels due however... More

Clean, good wifi, free guest laundry, helpful frontdesk, McDonalds and other restaurants close to the motel but no breakfast. Not modern decor but everything works fine anyway. Refrigerator and microwave in the rooms. I have stayed here before and will come back.

I have stayed at the Celebrity Inn several times. The owners "work" the hotel, so the service is like no other. They are very connected in the community, so can point you in the right direction should you have a need or inquiry. Some of the rooms a are little older in decor, but very clean and comfortable. The hotel... More

I am currently walking across America to raise money for a charity and the owners of Celebrity Inn were kind enough to donate my room for the night. Extremely friendly and helpful. The room was clean and had everything I needed. The location was great too with a grocery store, gas station and a bunch of different restaurants within walking... More

My husband and I stayed one night and found the hotel to be a nice place to stay. The room was clean and comfy; I liked having a recliner in the room. We had a microwave and refrigerator, although we didn't use either one. I thought the owner was so friendly and very accommodating. If you want to check out... More
