Was thankful to find a hotel during our drive back to Chicago at 10pm. Front desk clerk was very helpful & pleasant. Offered point program which I appreciated. Mattress and pillows need to be replaced. Overall, not expensive for a one night stay off Interstate when need a break from driving.

Quaint hotel that is right downtown. You can walk to many of the local restaurant's. Close to the Iowa Speedway. Very quiet. Worth a stay. Lucy, who runs the breakfast area, will put a smile on your face.

Lovely welcoming hotel and staff even when I was 2 hours late on arrival in October 2014 for 2 nights for a family celebration event. Rooms very clean and breakfast self service buffet but with a lovely friendly waitress. All went well especially after long haul flights from Scotland that is until Hotel erroneously charged for a 3rd night when... More

This motel is a little ways off from I80 which made it a LOT less noisy than most motels. Room was very clean and comfortable. Very fast internet service. Located within walking distance of the downtown area. Very nice staff. Check in was short and sweet.

A group of us spent one night to attend a conference nearby. The hotel lobby was attractive and clean. The pool area looked nice, although the hot tub was not open. Rooms were clean and tasteful, but could use a little updating. The bed was not quite hard, more like beds in lesser quality hotels. The shower pressure was very... More

On my recent road trip this hotel stuck out because it was the cleanest one. I felt the most comfortable here. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was good. (As far as hotel breakfasts go.) If your on a road trip, I recommend going off the highway for this one.

We were here in July, for one night (just passing through) and thank goodness for that. The staff was very helpful and everything was clean so I had high hopes..........then bed time came! The mattresses on these beds are as worn out as any dorm room in America. After driving for 650 miles that day the beds were so uncomfortable... More

Decent hotel, outstanding tasty breakfast with wide selection Very personable gal in charge of dining area. Downside is the bed was like sleeping on the floor! Otherwise, a typical mass produced room, so I think, overpriced for what I got.
