This is a gem! As the title suggests this place was very clean from the lobby to our room. The bed was comfortable. The hotel was quiet.

Spur of the moment decision landed us in Decorah. Made reservation for one night. Check in was fast. Very night front desk help. Room was clean, beds comfy, bathroom very tidy. So nice to be so comfortable and at home. Breakfast was on actual dishes. Food good. Enjoying our stay!

We were happy with our stay. Seemed like the best deal for a decent hotel in Decorah. Clean comfortable beds, New big TV, refrigerator in room, air conditioning was good. Breakfast very good, could use more pastries. Nice stay. Needs better signage, easy to drive by
