As a constant traveler with a cheap husband (some people know what I mean) I dread every trip because that spells me complaining about everything! I am in love with this place, found it in the middle of the night and had zero expectations. Extremely clean, spotless, cute, cheap and in a beautiful setting next to a town I can't... More

We had to travel back to what used to be our hometown for my 45th high school class reunion so we booked our stay at Elkader Inn at Elkader, IA. We were quite impressed as this motel was the cleanest motel we have ever stayed in. We have stayed in chain motels before and were always quite bothered by the... More

Very clean, very friendly, great view. And the price was good too. I had not planned on visiting Elkader but I could not find a room anywhere....I was pleasantly surprised by the whole town. Lady at motel had many suggestion for dinner and I took time to drive through town. I will be back for sure!

This Motel was very clean and tidy. We were very pleasantly surprised, as we don't often stay in small motels. The room and toiletries were basic, and the location, adjacent to a busy highway was not ideal to assure a quiet nite's rest, but we felt very comfortable in our immaculately-kept room which made our stay restful. The location was... More

Northeast Iowa is one of the more picturesque places to visit in the Upper Midwest. In the summer, the rolling hills are lush and green; in the fall, the leaf show is spectacular. This is small town America, and there is no Hyatt or Embassy Suites to stay at. The Elkader Inn is a road-side motel which offers clean, comfortable... More

My husband and I stayed in the "A Frame Cottage House" at the motel and enjoyed the serenity and peace and quiet that it has to offer. We had our own private little deck and enjoyed sitting outside viewing the surroundings. The room was very clean and the family that owns it was wonderful and very helpful. We decided that... More

I checked the Tripadvisor reviews for the Elader Inn Motel and they were all positive for cleanliness...they were right! Somebody mentioned that it smells clean when you first enter the room...I agree. This was one of the cleanest motels I have stayed in. Yes, it is from the 50-70's motel era...but that's what makes it wonderful...it is simple clean and... More

We booked this motel room months before, as all the area rooms were booked,due to a fest in nearby Prairie Du Chien, Wi. As it turned out, we made a great choice, as we had our Corvette out with us, and we had ample room to park it, large area for the cars. The other reviewers are accurate, and it... More

I stay at the Elkader in 2-3 times a year as a base to fish the rivers and streams of Northeast, Iowa. This is the cleanest Motel I've ever stayed in. It's basically just a motor lodge, but the couple that runs it is very nice and it's very inexpensive.
