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

Stayed 2 nites here in late Oct. This is a new inn and it is very clean. The rooms are standard but clean and comfortable. We had king bed and good sheets.

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. My issues with this stay were 1) the quality of the business center: as a business traveler I have to rely on the convenience of a hotel business center....this one... More

Stayed here Aug 24th thru 27th. There were quite a few people checking in for a class reunion ahead of us. While we were waiting, we were impressed by Jackie, the Front Desk Manager. She was very thorough and fast while having a good sense of humor. We took a room on the backside as they are quieter. I'm from... More

There's not a down side to this motel! Friendly, staff, very clean and comfortable rooms. The breakfast is wonderful as there is a wide selection of food and ample seating. FYI- I good place to go for supper is the Mexican restaurant in downtown Grinnell (I can't remember the name of it but there's only one).

I picked this hotel based on the Tripadvisor ratings and stayed there for two days while on a business trip. Right off of I-80, the location is very convenient. The hotel was new and lobby is nice. Jackie at the front desk was fun and spunky. She said she ran tight ship (quiet hotel) and made sure all the guests... More

This wasn't our first visit to this hotel and we have never been disappointed. Bed was awesome and so was breakfast in the morning! Check-in and out were a breeze and the staff was very courteous. Our king suite room was very clean and spacious. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that the furniture (chair &... More
