Nothing is worse than driving 7 hours and looking forward to a relaxing stay only to find out that your room is hot & dusty, the toilet not cleaned and previous visitors hair in the bath. The pool looked unhygenic with stuff on the water surface and the hot top had dirt at the bottom. We didn't even consider trying... More

The young man managing the hotel provided excellent service from the moment we checked in. He wasn't sure if our room was clean yet because we checked in relatively early and so he went to check it out first. The room was very comfortable and nice and easy to access, which was very helpful because I was travelling with two... More

It's rare in these days of penny-pinching that you have a totally positive experience with any business. I did have one of these experiences recently at this property. It served to bolster my confidence in Comfort Inns as they understood perfectly what business travelers value. quick and courteous service, clean and comfortable room, comfortable bed, a myriad of choices on...

We stayed here while attending a college graduation at Grinnell College. While we usually opt to stay at other hotel chains or upscale boutiques when traveling, ( this was the top choice of only a handful of hotels in the tiny quaint town of Grinnell). I was very pleased and pleasantly surprised with our stay. To put it in perspective,... More

Very friendly staff; breakfast is okay (eggs very watery;) room very clean; beds very comfortable; stayed in the handicap room, which I think was too tight for a wheelchair; we were there for college graduation and the price was almost double of normal;

What a wonderful 4 nights I had at the Comfort Inn. The staff is amazing friendly and helpful. Julie, the manager, could not have done more than if she were a personal assistant. Room was large and bed was comfortable. Bathroom was also large. Only nitpicky note is that the towels could be a bit thicker and softer. However, it... More

Rooms are spotless. bathrooms look completely new. The spa and pool are indoor heated and amazing. Just down the street is the Grinnel Steakhouse. Where you get to cook your own cuts of steak over an open coal grill. Stopping here for the night will exceed a treat for the weary travelers on the long 80.

I chose this property because of the Trip Advisor reviews. Lori at the desk treated us as if we were part of her family when we arrived, like she had known us for years. After many long hours of traveling, Lori allowed us to unwind and relax as we chatted with her for a few minutes as we checked in.... More

Let me start by saying that the hotel is clean, in a safe area, and the room was comfortable. As with most Comfort Inns, the walls are a little thin.
