My husband and I stayed here in July. My husband had to work on Sun, in the area, so I came along to enjoy part of the weekend. Due to the bike across Iowa, there were very few hotels available. We have a dog, so needed pet friendly. We had recently stayed at an Americinn in Madison, Wisconsin that was very nice, very clean, friendly staff and good breakfast. However, this was the extreme opposite. When we arrived, the lobby was OK, but when we were given our room, we walked down a very dark hall with stains all over the carpet. Our room was at the end and we had requested a no smoking room, which had a sign on the door indicating the same. On opening the door, we were greeted by the overwhelming smell of stale, strong smoke odor. We turned around and back to the front desk and were told there was only one other room available on the second floor and she would have to check with her manager before she could do this. She made the call, since no one else but this young girl obviously was on the property. After some discussion, she got off the phone and said the second floor room was not a pet friendly room and they would just put an ionizer in our room. We said no thank you. After some checking we were given another first floor room that was available. This one smelled like deodorant covering up smells. The beds looked like they were just thrown together, with the comforter hanging crooked and wrinkled and we questioned if the sheets had been changed. There was dirt at the end of the bed when laying down with a stale odor, but hated to look further for fear of what else I would find. The mattress was maybe 4 inches thick and hard. We left for the evening and figured we could manage one night of sleep here. Well, that was not to be had either, as around 1 AM there was a crowd of people coming in that made a huge racket outside, being on the first floor everything was heard outside as well, from screaming kids, to loud adults to crying babies and this continued inside and through the hall for at least 30 min. This was close enough for any staff to hear, if there were any around, to ask them to be quiet. About an hour later there was a crying young child that the mother tried to comfort in the hall, which is no fault of theirs, but every sound was heard including someone sneezing in the next room due to the paper thin walls. We did not eat breakfast because we wanted to just get out of there. I did try to get some hot water from their thermos for hot tea, but this was cold as well. I read one review after staying here that said save some money and stay in your car, and I fully agree. We were also charged $109 plus a $20 pet fee for this night when the posted rate on most sites averages $70. Definitely not worth even that.
