We were very impressed with this hotel. Much nicer than we were expecting for the pride. Staff was friendly and helpful, room was clean and comfortable. Pool and hot tub were clean and stayed open late so we were able to enjoy them after our planned activities. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in the... More

The room was clean and comfortable. All staff members were extremely inviting and friendly. Our entire softball team stayed for World Series and the front desk was so helpful the entire week. If we are ever in Iowa again we will not stay anywhere else.

I have stayed in over a thousand hotels in my lifetime and I can honestly say that this place takes the title of the un cleanest. Where shall I begin? Mold in the shower, bugs in the bed, old food in the refrigerator... Front desk refused refund!

We were in Grimes for our grandson's high school graduation and stayed three nights at the AmericInn. Very nice, clean hotel with very friendly, helpful staff. They have a nice little bar with reasonably priced drinks and have some light snacks available. We didn't use the pool but there were several youngsters enjoying it. If I had any complaint it...

Clean and comfortable. All staff members were very responsive to requests. I would definitely stay there if I return to the area. The breakfast was delicious and a great variety. It was a very pleasant experience!

If you want a good, clean, quiet place to stay when you are in the Grimes area, this is the place. The room was neat and clean, the staff were especially friendly and helpful, and the rate was more than reasonable. We used the pool area a couple of times with our grandchildren, and they had an excellent time. I... More

The out-of-town guest for my daughter's April 16 wedding stayed at the AmericInn in Grimes (8 rooms in all). It was great to have a place to all sit together in the evening in the bar area and not feel that we were disturbing anyone. One of the guest mentioned to me how nice she thought the hotel was. It...

This is a very nice hotel. We have stayed there many times. For the most part staff is very friendly. It has a warm inviting lobby. The rooms look like they have been remodeled in the last few years. They will try to accommodate most needs. Just let them know. The only thing is, in the past several times and... More

Hotel was a great place to stay, very accessible off highway. Room was great. The morning desk staff/breakfast crew was nonexistent . At 6:30 am, no regular coffee, last of the creamer, knives, and plates. Floor was very sticky. No one at the desk, had to ring for assistance.

The manager was nonexistent. Staff was not trained properly on how to charge credit cards. Was charged incorrectly multiple times. Then three months after my stay they charged my card again. What a nightmare!!! Would never recommend staying at this hotel or trusting them with your credit card information
