I could not believe I let my kids stay here....wouldn't even give me a refund or comp of any kind...their excuse for such dirty moldy conditions was they had someone in there for three months and had not checked its condition of room even after I explained the floors were soaking wet the air besides reeking of mold and jacking...

We booked this hotel with the intention of staying for two nights, over parents weekend at Iowa State. We had prepaid for this hotel, but because the hotel was so bad we checked out and left after the first night finding accommodations elsewhere. I asked for a refund for the second night but was told it was not possible to... More

Spent 3 nights at Village Inn during the Iowa State Fair .... facilities were clean and comfortable ... everything we needed. Not fancy at all, but worked out well for us. Staff was friendly and we plan to return again next year.

This is a cheap motel. Marginal for most travelers. It looks like they house some people for the county and they do not look so good. The place smells of smoke. But the rooms are clean enough. The neighborhood is OK but I cannot imagine any reason to stay in this part of DM. The price is low enough. The... More

It's an older motel, located about half a mile south of I-80 in a commercial area of town. Mediocre rooms. No security. Parking lot was poorly lit. Main lobby is in lock-down mode, but the doors on the side of the building leading to the guest rooms are left unlocked. No key required, so criminals have easy access to guest... More
