The Best Western Plus at Grinnell, Iowa, was a super clean hotel. For me, that is most important. Everything worked properly, the beds were comfy, the staff was great. It isn't fancy, but it has all you need. I already booked my next trip there in May.

Really bad Bug Bites Additional issues, but the bites and the confrontational Best Western response make this property not worth the gamble. After one night, woke up with extremely itchy spots on my arms. By the time I drove home that evening, horribly itchy lumps and swelling had developed. After a day, I was rushed to urgent care because bites... More

When checking in the Manager Laurie told us that they were not full and would not upgrade us even though we are Best Western Diamond Rewards Members. She said that they never upgrade and said it very nasty. She complained about being at her job all day and not leaving the building. We as guests really do not want nor... More

I've stayed at this hotel several times and have not been disappointed. Will stay here again. The manager assisted me at check-in and was very helpful. The room was clean and well arranged. Parking was convenient to get to my room.

The sheets had not been changed from last visitors. There was blood spots on the sheets. We slept on top off covers because we had a late check-in. They charged us 20 per night for our small pomeranian who does not bark. I will not stay there again.

This was one of the first motels I have given so many tens. Everyone was very friendly and the breakfast could have only been better if it had steak on it :) The room was very clean and the bed was super comfortable. It was great having the Grinnell Steakhouse next door. I would definitely stay here again, maybe just... More

Was quite pleased with this hotel, which was certainly a step up from the discount hotels (and a bit more expensive). We stayed in the building across from the main one and it was fine (note the pool and breakfast room was in the main building, the exercise room, for which you need to get the key from the main...

The second shift clerk was really nice and courteous. The room was very clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was good. I didn't use the pool, but some of the guests did. The morning was not as friendly when I checked out.
