“Do not stay here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2008

We were tired after admitting our daughter to the hospital and wanted a motel we thought we could trust at a reasonable rate. It was 2:00 a.m. and didn't feel like price comparing. Big mistake!
Our room, over $70, was nasty. It stunk for starters. The tiny room was barely big enough for the single double bed let alone our suit case. The bathroom was tiny. The bed sheets, without going into gross detail, were disgusting. Not even an alarm clock. It was a non-smoking room, but had an ashtray in the room (oh, it was upside down and said no smoking), but why was it in there to begin with. You could tell there were smokers in there fairly recently. Dingy, old fashioned decor did nothing to make the room feel comfortable. The next night we went to another motel in Lake Manawa, Settle Inn, and found the price very comparible, and the room was wonderful, modern, and tidy. It even smelled clean. We only wish we would have stopped there the first night. Needless to say, we booked our next night there.
