Very comfortable and friendly host! Stayed just one night and felt right at home. Host was very accommodating and had everything mapped out for us in the house very well. Available wifi and room to work and relax throughout.

We had a very nice stay at the Spaulding Inn. Charming building, lovely decor, comfortable bed and tastey breakfast served on the sunny porch. We could easily walk to the restaurants downtown and enjoyed the food at the Prairie Canary.

I was dropping my kid off at Grinnell college for the beginning of the school year and I was looking for a B&B nearby. This was an excellent choice. Just a few blocks from the college, excellent breakfast, wonderful historical house, very comfortable bed. Perfect night!

Spaulding Inn was wonderfully quiet and easy going. Breakfast was delicious with home made scones and peach pancakes. It was really interesting to explore and read about local history with books and brochures all around the house. But most importantly the friendliness and generosity of our hostess was a gift.

The Spaulding Inn is beautiful and very clean. It was a quiet and lovely stay. The bathroom was down the hall, but since the Inn was not full, there was never a wait. The breakfast had delicious local fare.

I stayed here during my 10-year reunion for Grinnell College and it was great - 2 blocks from campus, cozy, nice breakfast. Valerie and Tim were very flexible with our needs and great hosts. Valerie even taught me how to do a weaving project with my students at home! Super comfy beds, too!

My husband and I stayed here because it was recommended by the bride and groom of a wedding we were attending. It was within walking distance of Grinnell College, where the wedding was being held, and we were thrilled to be able to park our car and walk the entire weekend. Our experience at Spaulding Inn B & B was... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Spaulding Inn so much. A lovely, quiet getaway with delicious breakfasts. Valerie and Tim are very welcoming. It was a real treat. It is a quick walk to campus and downtown. It was quiet and comfortable. The bed and linens luxurious.

The proprietors Valerie Hammond and her son Tim are excellent innkeepers. The house is beautiful, the atmosphere friendly and the food delicious. I especially like the Savvy Rest beds which are extremely comfortable. I also enjoy having the organic cotton towels and robes which come with every room. The robes were so wonderful that I bought one for myself from... More
