Where I work I can get discounts on hotels and my wife and I were planning a drive around Central and West Central Iowa and was going to do some antiquing in Walnut, so I booked a night here because they had the best discount rates and I was trying to cut expenses. Upon checking in and giving the Desk... More

My husband and I stayed here on Wednesday night, July 30, while exploring the out-of-the-way things in western Iowa. This particular motel was chosen simply because of the rates vs the other chain motel further up the road. From the outside, it was nice enough aka good curb appeal, but that's about it. Once inside, it reminded me of another... More

We booked well in advance for the annual Walnut Antiques Show and were pleased to find that the hotel was just 1/2 mile from downtown and all the action! A basic older facility, we found the room to be quite acceptable, clean and spacious. The bed was ok, the TV was on the old side, but what do you expect... More

Mr.& Mrs. Emptynesters stayed in the Walnut, IA Econolodge because the rates in the Omaha area were way high because of a convention. The staff were friendly and attentive. The facility was clean and the room was good for the price (about $60/night including tax). We arrived at 6 and left at 5AM so we didn't spend a lot of... More

We were very pleased with the area, hotel conditions and found staff to be very helpful and friendly. The rooms and property was clean. Noticed for the summer or camping months there is a campground on the premises. We antique often and spend considerable time in town, so it was nice to have a place to stay and not feel... More

i stayed with friends and we were all amazed by how up to date the decor was. Very nice. The only issue we had was we were told check out was noon and housekeeping came around at 10:45 asking when we were leaving. A group in our party couldn't check out because there wasn't anyone at the desk. Breakfast was... More

We needed a place to stay on our road trip. Walnut Iowa is small with few choices. This hotel is average. The people were nice and the room is clean but it isn't anything special. The bed wasn't aweful but it was a little less comfortable than we would have liked. TV is still old style. There was a fridge... More

We are using the Choice chain for our road trip round America as much as possible and this place was the only one we could find which fitted our itinerary. I felt sorry for the staff there as they seemed apologetic about the place which wasn't what we had experienced elsewhere. The room looked as we would have expected at... More
