Comfort Inn & Suites was a comfortable stay on our cross country excursion. The beds were comfortable. They had good parking(which is a must with our extended cab truck). The staff was friendly, and there was a hair dryer, frig., & microwave in the room. They served a good breakfast with diabetic friendly options(yogurt, eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal, juice, etc.)...

Stayed here to visit Grinnell College with my son. The lobby is pleasant, and the room is very good, well provisioned and a good bathroom. The breakfast is quite good, for a free breakfast, with hot food and a range of other cereals and breads. The exercise room is a very nice bonus, with lots of recent vintage machines to... More

We recently stayed here on our recent cross country trip for one night. I have stayed at this hotel in the past without problem, but wow what a different experience this time. It started off bad right at check in. Some how they screwed up our reservation and didn't bother to tell us before we arrived, or even at check... More

We stayed only one night at the Comfort Inn in Grinnell. It is on the outskirts of town (abt 5 miles from the center). Desk staff were friendly and helpful. We had a nice room that was very clean, quiet and comfortable.The shower was excellent. The public areas of the hotel are not as nice as the rooms themselves so... More

I have stayed at this hotel in the past, and it continues to be my favorite place in the Grinnell area when I am traveling thru this area of Iowa. The staff was super friendly and I got to meet the new Manager, who sounds like someone who has some great ideas in making the hotel even better.

Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Room and bathroom were pretty clean. Adequate amount of very good towels - nice surprise. WiFi worked well. There was a faint mildewy smell that when we first came in, that wasn't too bad while the a/c was on. Wished I had asked for another room as later that night with the window open... More

The rooms are in good condition with new appliances and even extra USB ports and plugs near the bed (surprisingly rare at this point). Breakfast was sufficient and fine. Overall, worth the stay, especially along I-80 with a dearth of options.

This hotel was highly rated but I Am a bit disappointed. Keys don't work in outside doors so you have to walk around through the lobby. Doors are propped open to outside, handles don't work on some doors to stairwells. Hotel looks worn. Rooms are decent, good value. Clean and they take dogs which is great.

We recently stayed for four nights for the Grinnell College commencement. Our room was clean and comfortable. Anthony the manager was always friendly and helpful (as were all of the staff)! An especially nice touch was the reception with food and drink that the hotel held the night before commencement. It was something that is unexpected in a national hotel... More
