I could probably write volumes about this little getaway. But those words might seem hollow and more fluff than anything. So, I will say this: having never been to the area before, and only there for work, I called my wife once I checked in...More

Dennis, we're all delighted that you enjoyed your visit. Nutmeg barks her thanks for the friendly petting, and says, "Come again soon!" Thank you from all of us on the Little River Inn Motel Team!

There are not many choices for motels around Leon Iowa. This is a cute little motel and the Owner Laura is very helpful. The rooms are clean. There is a nice continental breakfast and snacks included in the price. Prices are moderate, you can find...More

Leon is a little town several miles off the main highway. Pulling up to it in the dark, after a long day of travel, it reminded me of one of the 'up north' motels we've enjoyed staying at. The owner/manager greeted us when my husband...More

After hours of driving through highway construction, we just had to stop due to fatigue. Saw this place and took a chance. Not fancy, but the owner was very friendly and they are old-fashioned "mom and pop" business. Room was very clean and comfortable. The...More

About
Description
Friendly motel in small town setting where you can make yourself at home! Rustle up some steaks on the grill and sit outdoors at our place, or go enjoy our local restaurants. Go fishing or eagle watching at More area lakes, hike some trails, visit Amish area farms & stores, or go just a little further to tour the Bridges of Madison County. Just ask us about great things to do! Just want to "veg"? - no problem, read a book, go for a walk, browse the internet, surf our many cable channels. We're just 1 hour south of Des Moines or 2 hours north of Kansas City, but a million miles away from hustle & bustle. Less
