My wife and I stayed in this motor inn for one night on our way south through Iowa. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. We will stay there again if passing through the area.

Very quiet hotel with a workout room that is not used by many people. They have a swimming pool and hot tub if you will want to use them. Many items for breakfast, some are hot. They are working on updating rooms right now but it is very friendly.

Always excellent accommodation's here. Staff is always great. Has the best breakfast of any of the hotels I stay at. I travel a lot for business and always stay here when I am in town. Use this hotel also for many business meetings and they are always first class service and food.

We booked 5 rooms. All were side by side and all were great! We were able to check in earlier which was great since we had 85 year old with us. Would stay here again! Staff were awesome! Location was good.
