Avoid anything but the "building on the hill" and prepare to pay more for those. No central lounge area, the main office is used for the owner's social gatherings instead of the guests. No shampoo, old stained linens, and crappy beds. Better off going down the road to another hotel or to a local bed and breakfast.

Doug will tell you; the weather, Ida Grove mystic, & a great place to eat! I was stranded an extra day because of weather- no problem! Thank you, Delux Motel. The town of castles, inviting atmosphere, and serenity. Will I go back? It is very well possible.

Do yourself a favor: NEVER stay in the old part of this motel. If you can stay in the "new" section of this motel, it appears quite nice: clean, spacious, well lighted, etc. The other positive: Free wifi. But there’s only availability in the "old" section, RUN. Our nonsmoking room REEKED of smoke. The carpet clearly had not been vacuumed... More

The delux motel was a decent place to stay. Not sure whats so delux about it but for the price we payed it wasnt bad. The people at the front desk werent exactly the most friendly bit i didnt have to interact with them much. I would stay there again if i was back in the area

for some reason, the couple that run the motel always seem a bit surly and put out by our stay. We have stayed about 6 times in the last 2 years, and always leave the room tidy and are not demanding in any way. We have only stayed in the newer rooms and appreciate the quiet there compared to the... More

We were disappointed with our stay this last time at Delux Motel. We had a room in the older section, the smell was pretty bad in the room, the bed, furniture and decor were very old, and it just seemed dirty. Other family members stayed in the newer section and thought the room was okay "if you don't mind the... More

I've stayed here several times. If you book early enough to get into the upper tier of rooms, they are very nice, roomy, and quite new; they do cost a bit more than the lower tier, where rooms are smaller. There is a refrigerator and microwave, but coffee is not provided. I'll stay here again.

We made a booking with the Deluxe motel for 2 triple rooms and 1 single room. We called again a couple of weeks ahead of our trip to confirm the rooms. Nothing is quite like a very long car ended with the blank look when you ask the person at the desk about your booking. They had the 2 triple... More

I have been staying at the Delux in Ida Grove for just over 10 years. It provides accommodation for workers, visiting seasonal hunters, overnight travelers and families. It has two tiers of accommodation, the first tier in the older section at the front of the hotel which charges a very low rate and the newer section at the rear which... More

I tried to book the B&B in town, but they didn't take credit cards. That only left the Super 8 and the Delux, so I decided to check it out. The place is old, but VERY CLEAN and quiet. The room's interior had been updated, with everything in good shape - counters, carpet, paint, etc. Everything worked well - Cable... More
