I was hesitant to stay here due to the recent reviews of odor. However, it was close to dark and we were on bikes. I took the plunge. First I'll say that the amenities were exactly as I expected. This is a typical Mom & Pop drive up to your door motel. Our room was clean, the carpet was fine...

At first entrance of the office you are greeted with the harsh scent of cat pee. I kept looking around for a yellow cat-shaped air freshener, but came up empty. I'm going to assume, as a joke, someone emptied out her bottle of Fabreeze and filled it at the local humane society. I typically enjoy visiting famous locations, but unfortunately...

Room 2 doesn't smell like cat pee. It is clean. Has what you need. However, our sheets were used and not changed....I complained and we were offered another room. Amenities weren't the same, so I took the sheets and switched them ourselves. Office DOES smell like cat pee. Gross.

A decent place to look at, though there isn't too much that's actially Amish about the place...but smell wise...if you like the smell of cat pee, urine luck. Otherwise...you might want to go somewhere else.

We stayed at the Great River Amish Inn for one night on a visit of the Laura Ingalls Wilder museum. For this area, this is a 3 star hotel - but this is a very small town with very few options. Pros: clean and pretty comfortable beds. Refrigerator, microwave, tv, good shower. Cons: the sheets were hot and the AC...

Although our room was neat and well dusted the entire place, especially the crowded office, smells like cat pee. This inn\motel is across the street from the Ingalls Museum but please choose somewhere else as this place is depressing and stinks. Pepin and Stockholm are wonderful to visit and full of beautiful drives and Laura Ingalls Wilder family history but...

I recently stayed here for a family reunion in the summer and it was a hilarious experience! We arrived with my family of five to find that there were only 2 beds and a small bathroom in our entire room. The room was cold and creepy; the first thing i thought when I sat on my bed was "did someone...

We were on bicycles and turned away from another motel in the area. This place had one room left and were happy to let bicycle riders stay there. The room is clean and comfortable but not much in the way of amenities. No ice machine, no phone, no microwave, etc. However, the bed was comfortable and the woman who ran...

I have never written a hotel review before and have traveled all over the world staying in many interesting places however I have never encountered anything like my experience here so felt as a public service announcement I needed to advise everyone. This hotel is very odd and the owner is a very unpleasant older lady with no people skills....

The cleanliness is the standout. You could eat off the bathroom floors. Very spartan room. No landline phones, very small wall mounted tv (hey, you aren't here to watch tv anyhow). Microwave and a small refrigerator which wasn't turned off. We visited on a summer day when the dew point was around 70 and were thankful for the air conditioner...
