We had a clean, comfortable, and relaxed experience. The staff were friendly and helpful. My son is attending Grinnell College and when we return for his graduation or other school activities, we would definitely choose to stay at the Pioneer Inn.

We have stayed exclusively at the Best Western Plus when dropping off, visiting, and packing up our Grinnell College student who is now a senior. The accommodations are perfect for our short stays and the local superstore is right on the way to the campus to pick up much-needed necessities. The continental breakfast is always a great start to the... More

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.
