I stay here weekly on business. Service and cleanliness is top notch! They even serve chili in the evening some nights. Best motel ever!! General manager is awesome and the quality is passed down to the helpers. Check it out!

Was here for business recently. Stayed in one of the newly remodeled rooms. Very comfortable and spacious. Nice that it had a walk in shower instead of a tub/shower combo (do people really take baths in hotels?). Good selection at breakfast. Nice and helpful staff.

We arrived at dinner time, checked in and the lady at the front desk gave us some fabulous dinner recommendations. She was very kind and helpful and we were appreciative. Had a great dinner and returned to the hotel. The remodeled rooms are GORGEOUS and large. (2 queen room) The little amenities: free cookies, bathroom sundries, automatic bathroom nightlight, etc...

Almost perfect visit....our first goal at the Country Inn and Suites Decorah is to be confident all of our guests feel special and appreciated. While your review of the hotel, breakfast and our new rooms was WONDERFUL, we failed, very poorly, we failed. I apologize for the insensitive way you were approached and will immediately share your comments and correct... More

Terrific experience. Hotel was beautiful, very clean. Breakfast had a lot of variety and everything was well-stocked. The hotel is going through an update, but we didn't experience any disruption during our visit.

We stayed for a family funeral and the staff went above and beyond to accommodate all are needs! Opened up the breakfast room so we could all eat pizza together that evening for dinner and even provided plates for us to use!

Hotel newly remodeled and very nice. Love the whirlpool. Staff was ok just not overly friendly. Hotels in Decorah are a little pricey and this one was too. Great pizza delivery in town just can't remember the name.

Went to this hotel bc of its location and it had a big enough room to host all of our family together. The hotel was undergoing a renovation due to being acquired, and it didn't in any way effect our stay. Cynthia at the front desk was warm, friends and more than accommodating for our needs. Rooms were clean, and... More
