The whole experience staying at Hometown Guesthouse was excellent. The staff were very efficient and courtesy. The facilities were very clean and welcoming. The breakfast was very simple. It was a nice surprise to find a nice facility near a very small town. I would definitely stay again.

I am happy to hear you had such a pleasant stay. I do remember your group. In fact, I had several staff members comment on what a nice, fun group you were to have with us. I know they will be delighted to hear that they made you feel at home and you will be returning. See you next time! More

This was a wonderful experience. We needed a place to stay near Marcus and you don't get any closer that here. Very clean, nice people, confortable rooms, and Price was great, too. A hidden gem in rural Iowa. We would definately stay there again.

This motel offers a clean, comfortable stay at an affordable price. You feel right at home with their friendly service. This lodging facility offers the same ammenities as most metro areas, but with small-town courtesy and price. Worth going out-of-your-way for!
