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

This was our 4th stay here and each was pleasant. Anthony, the manager, was most helpful and friendly as was all the staff. It is located just off I 80 and in a college town. If you have time stop in town for lunch. Since our grandson graduated I doubt we'll be back, if we ever go tt way again... More

We stopped here after a long day of driving in the rain. The front desk clerk Jackie was very nice and friendly. The room was comfortable and very clean. The bathroom was large and well appointed with all the necessities needed. The king size bed was comfortable and the pillows were not the usual flat hotel pillows. We would stay... More

I booked this hotel very last minute for a training conference I was attending with 6 other people. I will admit I was weary just from the price, all other hotels were twice as much due to the high demand for rooms. I was pleasantly surprised on arrival. The front desk agent was very quick to get us checked in.... More

We had a very nice stay. Our room was on an end and was quiet. Bed was comfortable and had all the amenities we needed to keep our lunch items cold. Coffee was hot in the morning. Parking lot was filled every night so we had to be a bit creative. Nothing to worry about. We will stay again next... More
