The owner is top notch, as noted in other reviews. The mattresses and pillows were great, the room was clean, and the price was good. There was a refrigerator and microwave. The people cleaning the rooms were friendly too. I hope to stay there again the next time I'm in Clarinda. If you get the chance to check out the... More

Love the collectibles they have around- some great old dirt bikes and antiques. This place is ok for the few nights I was there, and I am staying there again next month. It is nothing fancy, but it's priced right and they are friendly. The only other option is the Super 8 or a B and B and the Super... More

I recently stayed a couple of nights and will stay here again when in the area. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Roger (the owner) is very friendly and helpful. Parking was ample with lots of room if you pull a trailer. I found the rates very reasonable.

My parents stay here recently and my mom is in a wheelchair. The woman at the front desk basically told my dad that they don't want to have to deal with handicapped people. I'm assuming that is why they don't have a handicap room available. Ironically, when I was pregnant, i used alot of the handicap bars to get off... More

But this hotel has one of the most uncomfortable beds I've ever slept on. It was so hard I feel bruised this morning. I'm not 100% positive it was better than the floor. It is also not entirely clean. I found 2 hairs in our comforter and I wasn't looking. There are small cobwebs hanging from the ceiling. On the... More

The Celebrity Inn is like a restored classic car. The style may be old but the feelings it resurrects are priceless! From the nostalgic chrome tissue box holder to the beautiful paneled walled room. All this with updated amenities, Wi-Fi, cable TV etc.. The owners are awesome down to earth people that make you feel at home. My wife is... More

Or it didn't all go down. Clean enough, bed was ok, pillows were good for one night, staying longer, bring your own. Was in as good of shape as grandma's house, way friendlier than Grandma, left a key out for our late arrival.

Due to a death in our family I had to find a group of rooms for several out of town members of our family. I came across the Celebrity hotel and after speaking to the owner Roger booked the rooms. What I found was a big relief, the rooms were very clean, comfortable, quiet, and warm on these cold January... More

A nice, clean inexpensive motel. What a pleasant surprise. The beds were comfy and the place was very clean. The price was very inexpensive. The management was very friendly and helpful. We were so happy we found it. They are pet friendly and welcomed our two small dogs with no extra fees. If you want fancy this one won't be... More

Beware of the changing prices for this motel. I booked here during the Glenn Miller Festival at which my daughter was competing in the scholarship competition and (stupid me) didn't even think to double check on the room price. It never even occurred to me that during the festival the motel would inflate their usual rate so substantially. I paid... More

We are sorry that you felt you were "price gouged" we raise our rates only one time a year which is for the glenn miller festival, which we raise them $30 is all.. WE donate most of the funds back to the Clarinda chamber of commerce, for improvements to our wonderful little town, and it's festivals. Most motels due however... More
