The hotel was clean and is worthy of a stay for almost anyone for any experience. It is located in a small area, where hotel choices can be limited and this one give a sense of stability and peace of mind.

Hotel was adequate. Nothing special. One of the two rooms booked had been smoked in and smelled of stale smoke. I mentioned it so that we weren't charged the 300.00 fee for smoking in a room but the desk clerk didn't seemed concerned - never offered another room. There wasn't much in the way of eating around the hotel except... More

I am very sorry about the unpleasant smoke smell in the room. I'm not sure what the situation was that evening, but we most certainly have been full. I believe the clerk would most certainly offered a different room if one was available. We get many pleasant reviews from the restaurant next door. Again I am sorry you were unable... More

Stayed one night. Room and motel were clean. No suites but our king room had easy chair with ottoman plus the usual desk chair. Set of four towels, very fluffy. No guest laundry. Breakfast was very good with biscuits, gravy, sausage patties (all piping HOT) with usual waffles, cereal, yogurt and fresh fruit. Mexican restaurant next door was very good.

I have stayed at this property on numerous occasions. And, I have stayed at other properties in Cherokee, Iowa. This one is the best place to stay. Other places are cheaper by a couple bucks but they cannot compete with the quietness, friendly staff, easy access or the breakfast . . . which is one of the best. Will I... More

I recently spent two nights at this hotel. We arrived late in the evening the first night. It was very warm outside that day (high 90's) and the room was stiflingly hot when we walked in.

Rooms and rates were great. Had a room with a King bed that was very comfortable. The chairs in the room were also comfy. Bathrooms were clean and the shower head was elevated enough that my husband (over 6'2") didn't have to crouch down under it. The breakfast was typical. Stayed there for a funeral and the hotel allowed us... More
