We reserved rooms on both sides of RAGBRAI, figuring that it would be just the perfect place to start and end our trip across Iowa. After an 18+ hour drive into town, we were shocked to see a simple piece of paper on the door stating "Closed Until Further Notice". No phone call, no email, no warning that they were out of business. Upon inquiring at the diner down the street, it seems they they went into foreclosure in the 3rd week of July and simply turned off the lights and locked the doors. While we were fortunate to find another room that was sort of in the area (it was another hour drive!), we were very disappointed in not having been notified. The crazy thing we have learned in the meantime is that while the phone number has been disconnected, you can still book a room on their website!
