This is an older motel but it clean & quiet. The bed was good to sleep on. They do allow pets. You can have food delivered by several places in the area. We ordered out every night. We do visit the area several times a year.

Went to see an Upper Iowa University football game and all the closer hotels were booked so grabbed this one. The good, it was cheap and the beds were comfortable. Arrived at 12:30 am and had to wake up the manager and she let me in the office wearing her jammies, quick easy, workman like check-in. Struggled with key to... More

We came here as a family all the way from Indiana to celebrate the 4th. We were greeted at the motel with a horrid smell of meat coming from the unclean fridge in our room. We couldn't even bathe our 1&4 year old children due to the excessive amount of mold in the tub. The floor was covered in stains... More

Dirty place! Poor English and unfriendly service. Stay at Super 8 or in another town. You'd be better off staying in your car. This is a hotel for local drug users and teen parties, not a good place to try to sleep at night.

This is a great, old fashioned, motel. Has a large grassy area in front with picnic tables and grills, and behind it is a city park with lake, playgrounds, picnic areas, and camping. A beautiful place to stay as a group. We used it for our wedding guests, were able to eat breakfasts together outdoors, played in the parks, wonderful... More

The sign outside of town says one price for a single and that pets were welcome. When I checked in there was no one else at the motel, but they gave me a smoking room, even though I am a non smoker. I was charged double what the sign said plus $10 for my pet. I could not hardly breath... More

I'm not sure what motel the bad reviews stayed at but this place was perfect. Small town motel with friendly staff, clean, quite, great internet, next to a beautiful park and lake. I loved it! The front desk staff was really nice. My car would not start and the front desk guy helped me with a jump. I liked it... More

I called for late check in and couldn't understand the young woman that answered. She was friendly when I arrived but still not understandable. When I went to my room it has to be on the too 10 worst places I have stayed. The hard mattress and flat pillows were the worst and I ended up sleeping in the 1970's... More

Do not let the fancy website of this motel fool you. This motel is a dump. Room was dirty. The towels stunk with odor. I complained 4 times last night about the noisy construction workers in the room next door. The wireless internet is extremely slow. Manager's wife told me they would have coffee at 7AM, went to office in... More
