I stayed there for two nights. It was the cheapest hotel in town that I could find. The floors were the dirtiest I had ever seen and I have stayed in a lot of cheap hotels. The walls had something splattered all over them. The shower was nasty. But I can live with all that. When I stay in a... More

It is sketchy. ' pretty run down. I stay at this motel because I have a dog (who couldn't do any damage) and it is a nearby safe haven from my parent's house. It was a decent family motel with a pool when I was growing up but it has seen better days! There is no pool now. There seems... More

After not being able to find any other hotel room because all the other hotels in town were full of construction workers, I settled for the Palmer House Hotel. I travel A LOT and this has got to rank up there with some of the worst I have ever stayed at. The bed had rose pattern pillow cases, a comforter... More

June 2014...This was the dirtiest place I have EVER stayed at in my life. I was in RM #43 and it was terrible. The carpet was sticky dirty and I put on socks. They turned black on the bottom from walking on the carpet. The wall had a hole in it by the bathroom, couldnt even shut the bathroom door.... More

It was really good and decent. It is an economy motel, so I didn't expect a 5 star experience. As said before, their rooms are decent. There is an easy access Hy Vee just across the motel which is fantastic.

After a 60 day road trip across the US, this motel has tied for first place for the "Worst One". Their name was on the standard sign on the freeway for lodging in Sioux City so we mistakenly thought it would at the least be OK. It was very dirty, old worn out mattresses and linens. The bathroom smelled so... More
