If you need a place to sleep and clean up, Cresco Motel is not a bad backup plan when Decorah, IA is booked solid. Not much for amenities but clean, quiet and and easy to get to. No-hassle check-in and out.

We road trip often and love love love the convenience of motels where you park your vehicle a few feet away from your room door and often seek them out. We were delighted with our two-night stay at the Cresco Motel and plan to stay again when in the area. The room was super clean, quiet, had an updated bathroom,... More

Stayed here with my mom and sister for a family visit and was very happy with my choice. We booked a room with three beds and it was perfect for us, roomy and comfortable. As others have noted, it was clean and a good value. Our first morning, we were dying for some coffee and went down to the office... More

We were attending a Luther College event in Decorah but there was not a decent room to be found there. Cresco is only 20 min drive. This room was extremely clean with fairly new carpet and a flat screen tv (small but good reception). The bed was comfortable enough and we slept great. There was hot coffee in the office... More

Two adults and a boy of 16 years of age comprised our party. A reservation via telephone was made a day ahead, using a website for the motel that showed a photo of the room we requested. The motel is conventional, with parking just outside of the room. The motel is set back from the highway enough to be quiet,... More

We stayed here for Luther College's "Family Weekend" - me, spouse, and 14-year-old in one room, my parents in another. The rooms were very clean, shower was great, everything very quiet. The people in the office were not all that friendly, though. Not surly or rude, just bored/tired. Great price though and I was so worried it might be dirty/noisy/full... More

I have stayed at this facility in the past - very nice both times. You can't beat the interior of the rooms for the price. From the second you walk into your room, you can smell the "cleanliness" of the air. You know that you are walking into a clean room before you even turn the lights on. Much of... More

Small Quiet Comfortable Rooms. If you ever stayed at a Super 8 or other Motels that have all the rooms inside and the entrance doors to the rooms facing each other you know how noisy it is. Not Here, The rooms all have outside entrance doors. The best sleep I have had in a Motel in ages. It's not the... More

My 5 year old daughter and I visit this area on an annual basis but had never stayed here before. The motel is quiet and well located; however, we like to have our room cool especially for sleeping. We spent 3 nights here and the rooms are fairly new, as well as the air conditioning units. The first night, I... More

Small-town, basic, no frills motel. Clean, quiet, cheap. Small but adequate rooms (Double beds, no queen or king that we know of) Nice spot if your expection is a good shower and a good nights sleep. Friendly owners who can probably direct you to the nearest trout stream or county fair. On major highway, walk to the Pizza Hut (with... More
