“Stayed because of Trip Advisor good review.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2009

Don't Stay.. The motel is very dirty and the service is lousy. I stayed here
to be close to a restaurant and found out after I checked in the restaurant
had been closed for some time.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2005

I am comparing this motel to other rural Iowa motels, and that is why I give it 4 stars. I actually expected this motel to be somewhat run-down, but in fact, my room was very clean, very quiet, and cool on a very hot day. At 2am in the morning, a horrible storm moved in and I thought perhaps it was a tornado. The building and windows withstood the 70mph wind gusts that were reported on the following day's newscasts. It's next to a lovely restaurant, and across the street from a little ice-cream shack that also serves a great deal of food. The movie theater & downtown is 2 blocks away.
