We recently stayed at the Hotel Pattee as part of a bike adventure to ride the trails of the Raccoon River Valley bike trail. Due to torrential rains we found ourselves with a day inside and what a day it was. The Hotel Pattee is an amazing place to spend time. The restoration of this historic hotel is flawless. The...

Hotel Pattee is right across the street from the Raccoon River Valley trailhead. The staff are very friendly and make you feel right at home. Very accommodating to bicyclists. Look for the fresh baked cookies placed on each floor in the evening!! Definitely would return. Don't miss it!!

This hotel is amazing in so many ways: the room decors and size, the lobby, the bowling lanes. We went a bit [1/2 hour] out of our way home on Interstate 80 to try this place. It was so worth it. It is a gem. Each room has a theme. We choose Africa. Every thing in the room was from... More

We stayed at Hotel Pattee for a wedding (at La Poste) and it definitely added to the experience! What a unique, refreshing surprise in the middle of Iowa. Each room was decorated to the nines with special attention paid to details and authenticity. We very much enjoyed our stay. There are two thing I would recommend for improvements. First, there...

This hotel was an awesome experience. I have never felt this pampered, at home, safe and relaxed as I did staying at this hotel.

A well appointed, charming hotel in the middle of nowhere! The building is old, but the rooms and bathrooms are clean and well kept.

The Hotel Pattee is a bit out of the way, but well worth the effort. Cool themed rooms, woodwork all around, nooks and crannies everywhere. This hotel feels old and luxurious at the same time. It's like stepping back in time.
