Im not much of a treveler, but when I do travel I like to stay in a clean comfortable hotel. This exceeded my expectations. This quiet little town offers a very nice newer hotel. Checking in was a breeze. Clerks are very nice and helpful. They even helped me with my luggage to my room. My beloved furry baby was... More

Pros: Relatively clean Quiet Close to grocery store Pet Friendy Hot Shower Fridge/Microwave Cable Cons: Over priced Breakfast was horrible I ate a better meal at the gas station. No fresh fruit, all carbs, coffee was watered down. Bed spreads are horrible any decent hotel has done away with that. It was very worn out. Don't forget anything because they... More

Traveling across all parts of rural Iowa often presents a challenge to find any small town hotel let alone an exceptional one on the level of far more expensive urban hotels. But this is the exception ... it's worth traveling to Harlan just to have the opportunity to experience this lodging for a night. And probably the most comfortable hotel... More

We had a family event in Harlan and needed 6 rooms. They had the types of guest rooms we needed and a meeting room where we could gather. The facilities, including the pool, were great and well maintained. We had several children in the group of all ages that seemed to be 'no problem'. Perhaps the most accommodating staff I... More

We were looking for a hotel off I-80 that would be in a small town, the hotel is a great find! It was a short drive from I-80 but was better than staying right off the interstate. The room was clean, spacious and the beds were amazingly comfortable. The front desk staff were very helpful and referred us to a... More

The rooms were very clean as well as the bathroom. The staff was very nice and accomodating. The only complaint is the cereal in the morning was frosted flakes and it did not indicate that on the container which is bad for diabetics and they ate the cearal. Compared to other hotels this is a very simple buffet. We would... More

Lynda G, I apologize for the unmarked cereal. I will be sure to label the cereals. There are 4 types of cereal now, so I'm sure it will be helpful to the guests. Thank you for taking the time to bring that to my attention. I am pleased to know you enjoyed your stay and our clean rooms. Come see... More

Very surprised with a $7.95 fee for making a reservation. This fee appeared on my credit card statement, separate from the hotel charge. I would have been nice to be told about the fee when the reservation was made. The room was nice but over priced for a small rural town.

Larry G, I apologize for the fee that you encountered during your stay with us. I am not sure what this could have been because our guests are not charged any additional booking fees when booked at our property. I would like everyone to know our property is under new management and we have changed the service culture here. Please... More

This hotel is 11 miles off I80 but it was worth finding. There is no mileage sign for Harlan but it is the same exit as Avoca. Our king suite was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast in the morning is adequate and there were plenty of selections. I would recommend this place to... More

We were in Harlan to visit our son and his family. We stayed 5 nights. Pros: Large room, friendly staff, insert a card to access room, plenty of lighted parking. Cons: The shower curtain is opaque on the top. It the water hits that part of the curtain it will go through. Breakfast didn't have much variety. Pro/con: It is... More
