We stayed at the Country Inn and found out it was right on the biking/walking trail. We walked on the trail to downtown. What a treat with all the wildflowers and shade from the hardwood trees of Northeast Iowa. The motel was a treat to stay in. One of the surprises was at breakfast. Real plates, coffee cups, juice glasses... More

The Country Inn Decorah, IA was a great hotel, consistent with the other Country Inn's we have stayed at. We appreciated the pool and whirlpool, and the breakfast is always good. The room was very clean, quiet and comfortable.

We stayed at this property and were very happy. HAd the two grandkids with us and they supplied two roll away beds with a smile when requested. Staff was courteous and the breakfast was great with real plates, silverware and Coffee mugs. Would recommend this property. Only drawback was no elevator for a two story property.

My expectations were low for this place near Luther College. But even those weren't met. The place seems reasonably clean and the young woman who checked us in and recommended restaurants was very good. But after dinner when guests were in adjacent rooms it became apparent that the walls are SUPER thin and you can hear everything as if the... More

From the welcoming warmth of the firs place. To the welcoming smile on the faces of the front desk personnel, to the welcoming comfort of the beds, to the welcoming aroma of the breakfast. You feel welcome. A great experience that will entice you to return. Thank you.

This Motel was excellent. The room was very clean. The desk clerk was very helpful. Would not hesitate to stay here again. The motel was close to walking trails and eating places. We ere on our way to WI and thought about staying another night,

The hotel looked new and was extremely charming and well maintained. The rooms were wonderful, comfortable bed and very large. The manager was extremely kind, check in was flawless, and they served a wonderful breakfast. After this experience, I will lean towards more stays at a Country Inn and Suites.

We stayed one night here while visiting my sister at Luther College. The beds were both queens, and both very comfortable. The TV looked pretty new and worked reasonably well, picture quality was not great. The effort the hotel makes to be Eco friendly also gives it good marks. The staff at the front desks and during breakfast were all... More
