We have stayed here may times and were very pleased with all the updates that have been done. We will stay here again. We come down to Vinton to visit our daughter who lives in Vinton. We hope to visit again very soon.

Great place to stay for a small fee. It was well worth the money spent. Rooms were small but you would only expect that for the money spent. There are not a lot of places to stay in Vinton so this was a good choice for us.

We stayed at the Modern Motel for 3-4 days in June, 2015 to attend a family function. The room was very clean & comfortable. We were traveling with a dog & bird & both were welcome. Rusty & his family were very accommodating & very friendly...we had some nice conversations. I would recommend Modern Motel to anyone traveling to Iowa.

The first thing that clued us in that this was not a great choice were the people "staying" there hanging around outside their rooms at all hours of the day, grilling in the parking lot. This made us a little uncomfortable. There was a valiant attempt to clean the room, but the tile in the shower had no grout, &... More

The hotel itself met my needs as far as a bed to sleep on. The hotel is definitely older and Wi-Fi internet was not able to be used all weekend. There are no deadbolts on the doors and it is definitely in need of some serious updates.

What an awesome motel! Old-fashioned, yet very up to date. Room was immaculate! Owners very, very pleasant. Thank you for allowing pets. My only wish was that the grass was cut shorter for small dog walking. If I'm ever in the area, I would not hesitate to stay here again. If staying here, definitely eat at Tootsies, right next door.... More

I have stayed at the modern motel for a few years now. My contract brings me to town roughly ten times a year. I am delighted with the updated rooms and decor. Each time I have returned there had been something new added. It is a great value for the dollar. Internet connectivity needs addressing. I appreciate the friendliness of... More

Pleasant two night stay. Room was small but adequate for the price. Clean. The Wife and three small dogs enjoyed the walk out rooms. It snowed a boatload but the town is very well prepared aswas the motel. There is food next door and a pizza hut accross the street.
