I had a lovely stay at the AmericInn. I look forward to visiting next year . Some hotel members come into your room without your okay. If you don't answer the door , then come in. At AmericInn, they respect you and don't come in unless you say it is okay. Me and my boyfriend had the most awesome time... More

You better leave your room by 9am or your room won't get serviced. No elevator to 2nd floor, so if you have mobility issues, like my wife, tough luck. Better pray you can get a 1st floor room or you'll have to deal with the 15 steps to 2nd floor.

Recently stayed a night at this hotel. It was a non-smoking room by signage. However, it was obviously smoked in based on the smell. The smoke detector was disconnect from the wall, which is tells me without a doubt someone had been smoking in the room. The carpet had not been vacuumed as proven by the dried out french fry...

We are very satisfied with all Americinn's we have stayed at. We have always tried to stay with Americinn motels whenever possible. This motel in Grimes met our standards with two very minor exceptions. The toilet kept running and the turnoff valve would not work, and the bath tub stopper was broken. The desk clerk assured me that both would... More

The room and the hotel and staff was great - but the handicapped bathroom needed to much more cleaning. It was black in the grout area. The rest of the bathroom and the room was clean and nice. But it made you feel dirty to use the shower.

Overall a nice budget hotel. I'd place this hotel some where between a Super 8 and a Hampton Inn for quality. The room was large and very clean. The furniture was in overall good condition. The bath towels were a bit thin, not worn, just not high quality. The room was quite and you didn't hear much noise from the... More
