We have stayed at the Cresco Motel in the past and found it very much the same as it was 10 years ago, just different management. Our room was clean and reasonably priced with a microwave and refrigerator but no coffee pot nor toiletries. The motel has coffee in the morning but no breakfast. In many ways it is a... More

This is a small clean motel. The staff was courteous and our room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The motel is on the east edge of town and easy to find. There was a very good café within walking distance of the motel.

If you are looking for your usual motel room, this isn't for you. But if you want a clean room, clean bathroom and a reasonably comfortable bed this is your place. We stayed 4 nights. There is one quirky thing; any time you want to turn on the A/C or the heat, you must call the manager and ask him... More

We basically just used this motel for sleeping while we attended a family graduation party. This is a small town, little one story motel that you park your vehicle right outside your door. There are no frills, but it is clean and adequate for short term stays. We would stay there again when we are in the area.

If you need a place to sleep and clean up, Cresco Motel is not a bad backup plan when Decorah, IA is booked solid. Not much for amenities but clean, quiet and and easy to get to. No-hassle check-in and out.

We road trip often and love love love the convenience of motels where you park your vehicle a few feet away from your room door and often seek them out. We were delighted with our two-night stay at the Cresco Motel and plan to stay again when in the area. The room was super clean, quiet, had an updated bathroom,... More

Stayed here with my mom and sister for a family visit and was very happy with my choice. We booked a room with three beds and it was perfect for us, roomy and comfortable. As others have noted, it was clean and a good value. Our first morning, we were dying for some coffee and went down to the office... More

We were attending a Luther College event in Decorah but there was not a decent room to be found there. Cresco is only 20 min drive. This room was extremely clean with fairly new carpet and a flat screen tv (small but good reception). The bed was comfortable enough and we slept great. There was hot coffee in the office... More

Two adults and a boy of 16 years of age comprised our party. A reservation via telephone was made a day ahead, using a website for the motel that showed a photo of the room we requested. The motel is conventional, with parking just outside of the room. The motel is set back from the highway enough to be quiet,... More

We stayed here for Luther College's "Family Weekend" - me, spouse, and 14-year-old in one room, my parents in another. The rooms were very clean, shower was great, everything very quiet. The people in the office were not all that friendly, though. Not surly or rude, just bored/tired. Great price though and I was so worried it might be dirty/noisy/full... More
