Unfortunately I'm working in the state of Iowa. I have nothing against it but all these small towns have horrible hotel choices. We had to drive an hour from where we are working just to get a room. The TV didn't even have a box for there new cable system. I had to steal one from a different room. Now... More

We were traveling through the area the day that the College world series was happening in Omaha. We were having a terrible time finding a hotel with a vacancy. When we happened upon the Econo Lodge in Walnut, IA. The lobby and reception area looked alright, so we thought, how bad can it be? Oh, we found out!!! The room... More

Not worth the $147 we were charged. The door to our room looked as if it had been kicked in as the woodwork was pulled away from the wall. As a result it wouldn't shut and bolt properly without my husband applying force to shut it. Light from the hallway could be seen around the whole perimeter of the door.... More

We were fairly desperate for lodging after it seemed all if the motels and hotels in de Moines and every town around it was filled for conventions and a golf tournament! My TomTom directed us to a place that looked long closed and was positively scary even if it was open; a U-Haul rental outlet with maybe some rooms! But... More

We were surprised this hotel had a RV Park. Seemed okay when we pulled up to the office...but after paying for a site, and driving behind the hotel we found the RV park was not maintained at all. High weeds abound. Hookups have 50 amps and water...and there is a dump,if you can find it.

As the name implies, it is more economical to stay here but not by a great amount. The hotel is pleasant, clean, comfortable. The rooms are very nice, the staff extremely cheerful and helpful. The breakfast is very minor. There are waffles but we had to ask for bread to be put out for toast and that was about all... More

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.

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
