Stayed in July 2014 after we got a flat late at night on I80 that had to be repaired before we could continue our trip. Initial impression was that the room was dated and less than clean but bearable and we didn't have much of a choice. Then we woke up completely covered in bug bites all over our bodies.... More

The Best Western rewards program didn't work so good! We've stayed lots more than the required '3' nites for a free nite. This motel put us into a handicapped room, we are not handicaped! The room was second rate! The poor soul that needed to lower the shower would not have been able. the hand held shower was really way... More

This is a very nice motel with a very friendly staff. I was given a suite at the price of a regular double queen room. the breakfast was really good. the dinning room was large and well stocked. Also the serving staff was very friendly. I highly recommend this motel if your in the Grinnell area.

Stayed at this hotel in April 2013 and July 2014. Both times, I had an excellent experience. No problems with room. In fact, it was wonderful. Not only was it clean, but I loved the fact the bed had a bunch of extra pillows on it. You could one pillow or six. It didn't matter, they were there for your... More

The hotel was just fine, nothing great, but definitely not bad. Had some issues with the keys, but overall it worked well. I would recommend this hotel. The breakfast was okay, but nothing great. The coffee was horrible, but luckily there was a coffee maker in the room.

Honestly it is old, we stayed in the outside area, smelled like cigs still from old days, but it was well appointed, fridge, micro, great bed, good wifi connection. Love this place. People from Iowa are so nice.

Slipped at the pool but otherwise the property was really nice and the service excellent!!!!! Best Best Western property we stayed in during our trip. We were a bit nervous that it was a motel and not a hotel, but it was very clean, comfortable and family and pet friendly.

It's hard to rate this hotel because there are two buildings and they are like day and night. We stayed here last year and was put in their old building and it was musty and dirty smelling, the bed was soft and we were overall displeased. This year we were travelling through Grinnell and decided to give it a try... More

I had trouble finding an available pet-friendly hotel along I80 between Des Moines and Iowa City. The other chains wanted $100 for a pet. No Motel 6 was nearby. So we chose this hotel for just under $100, gulp. It is very eye appealing and clean. We had a nice and quiet room near the very large grassy area where... More
