Hotel is clean, rooms were nicely appointed. Staff was very friendly. Free Wi Fi which was very fast. Breakfast was just OK but came with the room. Right off the highway made it convenient and the town was within a few blocks. Gas station was next door which was nice,

The property is located close to the interstate and is well signed. As we drove up the driveway, it was clearly evident that the property was well cared for. The young lady who checked us in was very helpful . We had some issues with our wifi which she helped us resolve90''p

Just off the highway, good location. High price if not using amenities like pool. We stopped only one night, had a good sleep. Unfortunately people smoked by the door (employees?) Even tho the place was "smoke-free" we had the stench in our clothes.

very convenient to freeway, great people running the property, accomodating, anxious to help. Not the most luxurious facility, but very comfortable. Air conditioning in high humidity conditions leaves something to be desired, but otherwise comforatable. Good nights sleep

We enjoyed a much-need night's sleep as we were venturing across Iowa in the wee hours of the morning. The staff at check-in was very helpful and we had a quiet few hours of sleep. In the morning when we awoke, mostly everyone else had left to continue their travels. A great stop to rest your eyes.

My family and I traveled a long distance and did not have a reservation. When we arrived at the hotel, the desk clerk was very attentive and cared about the trip and asked questions to help us find dinner for that night. When I finished unpacking, I wanted to check my email, and I was incredibly happy when I remembered... More

The room was clean. Property is now smoke free, but it is obvious in the halls that it used to allow smoking--that smell never goes away. But the room smelled okay. Room has been refurbished so shower and toilet were great, but there was mold on the ceiling. Breakfast was typical.

We stayed here for two nights and we enjoyed our stay. The hotel staff was very friendly, the room was clean, our bed was comfortable, the breakfast was great, and we loved the large pool and hot tub. We stayed in the main building and had a bottom floor room. It doesn't have an elevator, and I don't climb stairs... More

First the good: friendly staff, comfortable beds, good shower and nice pool and hot tub. Now the problems: Musty halls smell of cleaning compounds, broken outside door in south building (a security issue as people prop it open with a rock), wifi mostly not working (see previous reviews of this hotel).
