After touring Amana Colonies for a day, we decided to spend the night. We had no reservations and walked into the Guest House where we were treated very nicely by the owners. Not only did we get our 'senior discount', we were shown to our room. The rooms are quite simple, but clean...not many amenities, but the price was right.... More

While visiting the Amana Colonies in Iowa we decided to stay at the Guest House Motel before heading home. It was a good choice. It is an attractive building with trees and blooming flowers but does not stand out. It has adequate parking, and it is conveniently located within walking distance of restaurants, bakeries, and specialty shops. Once inside, we... More

The guest house is not fancy, it doesn't have whirlpool tubs or keurig machines in the room. But it has very clean standard rooms centrally located in Amana, Iowa. Walking distance to anything you would want to do in Amana. Mill stream brewery is about a block and a half away, Phat Daddy's pizza and Serena's coffee is located behind... More

Just enjoyed my third stay at the Guest House Motel in as many years. If you've stayed there in the past you may recall not being greeted by the people who checked you in and then being given the impression it was really an inconvenience just to have you there. Rather odd for one in the role of customer service.... More

Stayed at the Guest House for one night with my sister and her young grandson. The owner was very nice and friendly.. The room was very clean, it does need some repairs and a little updating but nothing that would keep me away! It's location is perfect, had an all around great stay and would recommend it to anyone. Great... More

We decided to stay the night in Amana whilst visiting the colonies and checked into the Guest House motel. Really friendly and helpful owner who made us feel very welcome. Our room was very clean and adequate for us, we even had a little fridge which was great. He told us where the ice maker and microwave was located and... More

Very clean, owners very accommodating . Coffee was made every morning by 7 in Lobby. Welcome center for Amana across street, a lot of attractions and stores are walking distance away from Motel. I appreciate them asking if everything was ok in the rooms, and they fixed it right away if we needed something. Thank you we had a wonderful,... More

Enjoyed our stay at Guest House. Owners were fantastic in every way. Helped unload car and made sure everything was just right. Clean and very affordable. Walking distance from most things in Amana Colonies.

We have been regular guests of this establishment, for more than 25 years. Oktoberfest is a yearly tradition for our family, and we have come for other events as well. The motel had been showing its age in recent years. HOWEVER, the NEW MANAGEMENT is trying really hard to reverse that, and they've begun the refreshment and updating process. We... More
