My family and I checked in the Sleep Inn on Friday the 17th and plan on staying till Monday. We had made our reservations one year in advance because of graduation and wanted to make sure we have rooms to stay in. We I made the reservation I asked for two adjoining rooms on the first floor. The young man... More

Booked the poolside suite for kids when we went to visit the Living Farms Museum. Had a bit of problem with the air conditioner, but the staff was so friendly and accommodating, that we had a wonderful stay regardless. Pool area was very nice, and we loved that the room opened right into it!

Had a few problems with the tv but other than that it was the most relaxing weekend I've had in the past five years! Not to mention they had the biggest hot tub I have ever seen. Their breakfast was also incredible. The orange juice tasted like it was homemade and the waffles were a hybrid between waffles and pancakes!

At first glance the Sleep Inn was very nice, clean and updated. But then I started noticing things... First, very poor quality mattresses (soft and bouncy) even my 10 year old complained of a back ache in the morning! Secondly, the shower had very little water pressure and worst of all no hot water. I turned the nozzle all the... More

Well located, nice area, quick check in and out, standard Sleep Inn breakfast. Very quiet. Only hitches were water that wasn't quite hot enough and slow, but reliable internet. Love the Machine Shed restaurant next door. Good value for the money and would choose this property again.

I stay here often and usually on short notice or with no reservation. Staff is very friendly and facility is very clean. When you stay here you need to have dinner at the Iowa Machine Shed located in the same lot.

I realize they may not have enough seating later in the day for breakfast. But because the staff was so accommodating and our room was very clean and large enough for two people with luggage, I am rating it the best. When I checked in the desk clerk asked if I was there on business. When I responded yes, he... More

We stayed at the Sleep in while attending a conference nearby. Found it to be reasonably clean and very comfortable. Great for the price. The morning breakfast was typical for hotels but was good. We did not use the fitness center but it looks like they had some decent equipment.

The Sleep Inn's had an overhaul since I last stayed there in 2006. The green painted walls in the rooms certainly lend to a more modern look, though the use of cooler colors doesn't exactly lend to a relaxing sort of feel. We chose the Sleep Inn because it is quite frankly the nicest hotel available at such a reasonable... More

The kids loved this pool and spent the majority of the time there. It was great being able to order in food and not being limited to the Hotel's food by the pool. Great breakfast for the family, very helpful front desk staff. Would stay again as it is close to Living History Farms and not too far from Jordan... More
