I woke up in the morning of July 26th to find bed bugs in both of the beds and my grandson had been bitten. I notified the manager and he asked where we stayed before his motel. I said HOME. He stripped the beds and gave me a small refund. The air conditioner was loud.

I had to pay a little bit more for my stay this time but it was worth it. I had clean room and smelled fresh. My bed was like sleeping on a cloud and they remodeled the room I was in. Micro and Fridge Flat Screen TV with HD and new vanity top on the sink and do not forget... More

The innkeepers are very friendly people. The motel is easy to find, it's very easy to park, and close to a Hy-Vee grocery/gas station and restaurants. The price was great. They like dogs, and had a small fee for my Akita, which was no problem. The room was comfortable and had fridge, microwave, good TV, and wi-fi. I'd stay here... More

Very clean and newly painted room that I was in. Everything worked, had a nice wall mounted 32 inch LCD television. Plenty of room inside with new furniture . The outside doesn't look like much, as it is an older hotel. But is in good shape on the inside, I think it was a very good value for your money

I helped a family in need and got them a room at this hotel. The owner was very accommodating and friendly. Room was clean even if it was outdated. Free breakfast in the morning. If you need a place to crash and dont want to spend around $100.00 a night. This is the place to stay.

We ended up staying here simply because we were traveling without reservations and there weren't any rooms in any of the chains for the last 50 miles. The rates were good, the room was clean and comfortable, and despite the bus stop, it was very quiet. Not only that, but the owners were wonderful people and very accommodating. Despite the... More

The owners are a pleasant South Asian couple, so I feel bad ripping their motel. But it is terribly run-down and grungy, and they have got to know that. There is nothing romantic or nostalgic about mom-and-pop motels such as this one. Stick with the chains. And I am vexed that this motel got rave reviews from accounts that appear... More

Lumpy beds with a bare sheet on the sagging mattress in a musty, smoke-tinged "non-smoking" room. Woke up wheezing with red, itchy eyes. For the money you're better off getting a good pillow and sleeping in your car.
