The Grinnell Comfort Inn & Suites is located a short distance off of Interstate 80. There is ample parking in front and on the side of the building. There are two floors and an elevator. Rooms were nice and clean. However, the side staircase, which was carpeted, needed vacuuming. From Friday evening (when I arrived) to Sunday morning, it still... More

Very slippery parking lot. Additional lazy snow removal. No one at front desk (and no sign). Got to room, not cleaned from previous stay. Made me return to front desk, rather than bringing me a key. Breakfast food all out, several tables dirty (no attendant). Think twice before staying here.

Stayed at the Comfort Inn & Suites in Grinnell recently while on a business trip for work. The hotel is located right off the highway and sits along a pretty desolate road about 2 miles from downtown. The hotel was pretty quite and the hotel agent really didn't do a good job of selling any restaurants or bars nearby so... More

I would never suggest this hotel. We had a room with a kitchen area and it was gross. The drawers and cabinets were all filled with garbage, and the dishwasher was still full. The dining area had a big sticky pad thing full of all sorts of weird insects, right next to where we had breakfast. Our travelling companion's room... More

Wasn't planning on stopping but due to the weather decided to pull off. Close to 80, clean room and reasonable price. Breakfast in the morning had a good selection just needed to be patient with the coffee machine as it comes out slow. Only employee we made contact with was Michelle at the front desk who was super informative and... More

Overall, very positive. Nice place to stay. rooms are comfortable. Don't always clean the coffee pot - ours had old coffee still in it [same thing happened one month earlier when we stayed]. Also we were visiting for a wedding - guess that meant no room service other than to make beds and put clean towels in. Trash never emptied... More

This hotel was a bit pricey for what it was. Staff all very nice. Rooms clean and spacious. We stayed 2 nights. Breakfast was not up to the typical Comfort Inn fare. Waffle mix and syrup sat empty. The eggs and sausages took an extended time to replace. Trash not emptied by maid service.
