We were travelling to Illinois and happened upon this Best Western. The staff was friendly , the room was large (got a handicap room), clean and quiet. Very satisfying for about $145.00 taxes included.

The look and size of hotel is good but old carpeting and materials throughout make the smell too much to bear. Staff is friendly enough but food and rooms low quality. The location is a great spot and close to everything in the city but I will never, ever stay here again.

This place is close to a steakhouse (which was fabulous. Check the Grinnell Steakhouse on TripAdvisor), pet friendly, and affordable. Right off the interstate. My only negative is that the bathroom is way too small. There's a pool but we never went there, so I can't post a review. We Enjoyed our stay.

Stayed in the "other building"....not the main building where office was. My room was dark and dingy and there was a two inch gap under my door. There was literally 5 cars in the parking lot and I asked if I could change rooms and they told me there wasn't any available. My corporate office booked the room for me... More

If you choose to stay at this disgusting hotel then you must insist on staying in the main building where the front desk is located. It is remodeled with new rooms. The main building is very nice!

$100 or so I-80 stopover motel, right off the highway. Good, clean, and safe bed. Nothing fancy but it gets the job done. Everything worked the way it should. Decent breakfast will take you 300 miles the next day.

I recently stayed at this hotel for a race weekend at Iowa Speedway. I would not recommend this hotel. The front desk staff would not allow me to check in an hour early. They claimed the staff was still cleaning my room. Seriously, on a Friday afternoon in Grinnell!? After returning after an hour later and checking into my room,... More
