Very nice accommodations for a small Iowa community not accustomed to having travelers stay in town. The hotel rooms are individually and tastefully decorated with themes from past historical events. The hotel underwent a major renovation in the recent past. The air conditioning on a hot, humid, July day was inviting. To attract "thru travelers" who are used to having... More

We recently enjoyed our family reunion at Hotel Pattee. Each of my family's rooms was decorated so wonderfully that we wished we could have just spent more time in the rooms. We were lucky to get a peek at several other rooms in the hotel as well - each one more amazingly decorated than the last. All aspects of our... More

I have traveled for almost 50 years all over the world. The Hotel Pattee is one of the very best I have ever stayed in. Each room is different and very detailed with extras. Plus the help seems to appreciate the fact that you are there and treats you as a guest. Every time I have eaten in their restaurant... More

What a cute hotel. Very historic. The hotel is older but very clean. We stayed in the "woodworking" room and was a very large room. Double sinks and king bed. Quiet room. We visited the hotel for a rehearsal dinner and the dinner in the courtyard was great, service was friendly and the bowling alley downstairs is a plus! Had... More

I stayed at the Hotel Pattee last Sunday night. I thought that the hotel was incredible. The whole experience from the time that I parked in front to the time that I drove away was like a trip into the past. The attention to detail in the renovation/decoration is so incredible. It's history is so interesting, but impresses me the... More

If you want to visit a slower time in the past I would recommend visiting the Hotel Pattee. My wife and I have stayed there and had found the room unique and very charming. This time we were just passing through and decided to eat at the restaurant, the food was great. The main purpose for this review is to... More

My husband attempted to book 3 nights at the hotel from a discount travel vendor, only to find out the reservation did not go through. The hotel did not have a room at that price for all three nights so they gave us the one room for the first night and then a (double the rate) suite for the same... More

We took a short notice July 4th trip to Iowa for some bike riding. The best place to stay in central Iowa turned out to be the Hotel Pattee in Perry. The owners have done a magnificent job of decorating and revitalizing this property. All the rooms have themed decorative schemes such as the Louis Armstrong suite or the American... More

This is hotel is very old, and has a lot of charm and history. Each of the 40 rooms decorated in a different theme, and is well appointed. There is even a working bowling alley (2 lanes) in the basement! Staff is helpful, knowledgeable and courteous. The one, and minor, criticism is that the lighting in the rooms is low.... More
