Some Motel 6s are actually pretty decent. Some are downright awful. There aren't too many in between. This one manages to fit that grey area. First, the good - the rooms and lobby are a lot more along the lines of an Econo Lodge or Super 8, and relatively nice ones at that. In fact, I'd guess not too long... More

This motel was very, very inexpensive. The room was clean, other than behind the night stand (I cringed a bit plugging something in). The sheets were stained and mismatched. The tub, sunk, and toilet had seen better days. The towels were small and scratchy. The room had an odor, like maybe it used to be a smoking room and it... More

The staff was helpful and pleasant. It is set back from the main highway so has both virtues of quiet and convenience. My room had a lovely new flat screen tv and had been freshly painted (tho the painter was a bit sloppy). The room was basic, no frills. It had a microwave and refrigerator but no coffee maker. Continental... More

I recently stayed over a three day period. I cannot say enough good things about the hotel from the staff to the rooms. The staff members that I encountered were all very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is very well maintained allowing for great curb appeal; once inside it is the same. The room was very clean with numerous... More

I found this Inn six months ago and have stayed 3-4 days out of every week since then for work. Their price was the best in town for all the amenities offered. I love the continental breakfast they offer every morning, and the rooms are extra clean and very comfortable. The staff is one of the best I have ever... More

I've stopped here twice on 2 different long road trips. The price was definitely right but more importantly the room was cleaner than the average budget hotel. I have found the staff including Nick Rhoades, the Manager to be helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend you check this place out....great location just off the freeway!

When we get reviews such as this, it is my pleasure to pat the entire crew on the back. When we are alerted to areas where we can improve, we very thoughtfully use the information provided... More

I stay here 3 days a week about 50 weeks a year the whole staff makes me feel welcome. Every stay is like coming homefrom the friendly staff greetings to coffee and breakfast on the run. Rooms are always clean and comfortable, if anything is ever out of place they bend over backwards to make it right.

Dave, thank you for such a great review! You've been coming here long before I started managing this property. We appreciate your continued patronage. Many faces have not changed around here over the years; clearly, the people are who make the difference. I suspect I'll see you this week and will express my gratitude in person. Thanks again! More

A little too downscale for our taste. We were in town for one night and decided to go low budget and book here, but the room was pretty spartan (with the gross flowered bedspreads that you wonder if they're ever washed) and the continental breakfast subpar. The am desk clerk didn't even look up when we walked in or out... More

Thank you for your review of our hotel. We cannot improve if we do not have feedback such as yours, so I'm very grateful. Indeed, I assure you our bedspreads are regularly washed... but I also agree that they are somewhat dated. We are looking into new, more contemporary bedspreads. We strive to make sure we are the BEST VALUE... More

I work on a road crew and live in motels during the summer. Manager Nick and his staff were outstanding and very accommodating. Excellent rates and clean, quiet, comfortable room. I highly recommend this as a must stay motel when in the Marshalltown area. Thanks Nick!!
