A cheap stay w/o any frills. The clientele was not what you would find at a mid to upper end hotel but the price was right. Good access from the highway. The room seemed a bit soiled and in need of an update. Just a hint - bring your own pillows.

Our room was clean, nice comfy bed with good A/C. The motel is in a great location and there was plenty of ice. There was coffee in the lobby in the morning. I would definitely NOT recommend the restaurant associated with this motel - terrible service.

First off lessoned learned. Did the Hotwire super hot rate so didnt get the name tell after booking. Was ranked with Super 8 and Fairfield inn. I have been to truck stops that smelled cleaner and felt safer. Internet was not working called the front desk and was told nothing was wrong should be working even though had a computer... More

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
