This location was perfect break for our long trip. Very comfy mattress & very good breakfast buffet. Nearby Neal Smith NWR Prairie Learning Center interesting displays & trail. Surprised by large Classic Car Show in Prairie City (not advertised online).

Our race team stayed at the Microtel on Thu, 13 Sep while racing at the Iowa Speedway. This hotel is fairly new, very clean and nice. Rooms are decent in size, have microwave and frig. Queen beds are very comfortable. Plenty of parking for semis or race trailers. Teresa at the front desk was very nice and helpful upon checkin and checkout. Breakfast selection is limited but adequate. Will stay there again next year, reasonably priced, easy off and on to interstate.

New, very clean, excellent price, pleasant staff, and a breakfast that got the job done. Perfect for a quick, economical, comfortable stay. Was surprised that juice was available only in a vending machine, but hey, the price was right. Had a computer for guest use besides the wifi. Dish TV with lots of channels and Showtime. My wife said the mattress was really good. No restaurant or pool, but we didn't want them.

Room Tip: A room on the other side of the building from the interstate would be good.

I came into this Microtel while road tripping through this area. I had received a tip to try this brand. I knew nothing about it, but wanted to try. I stopped in this lobby and asked the person on duty if she could "sell her brands to me" and she gladly obliged me. I decided to give it a try, and had a coupon from the travel guide and had a great stay. Very cozy and clean. Smoking rooms available. Very friendly and helpful staff. They have just what you need without the expensive frills you don't need. They are located off the highway for easy access, but surrounded by corn (for great pics). There is food and gas nearby. They seerve a continental breakfast and have pop machines and vending too. Ice maker. All that you need to get through the night.

This hotel was more than adequate for what we needed.as we tried to reserve something on line in Des Moines the previous day however no luck. The setting for the hotel is quite unique for a West Coast boy as the cornfield surrounding the hotel gave it a very rural Iowa look. The room was very comfortable, we had a Queen Jacuzzi suite, very spacious. Even-though the hotel is close to I - 80 we heard little to no highway noise, heard more thunder than vehicles. If you are looking for a place to eat locally drive into the town of Colfax, about 1 mile, and visit Georgio's Pizza. We had the House Special with extra cheese and it was served very hot and was absolutely fantastic and reasonably priced. The service was very good and the, I am assuming, owner/manager was very friendly. I would recommend this hidden gem of a pizzeria off the main thoroughfare.

Room Tip: If you can reserve on - line they web deals(at least this one did) as well as AAA discounts.

The road noise is there but who cares when your getting a fresh room. I called ahead of time to make sure my age wouldn't be a problem, which I was treated very good by Thresa from the beginning (whom answered the phone and checked me in) I was very comfortable carrying on a conversation with her. I was issued my electronic room key to #104... Thats when i walked in:

The room was fresh and bright, no stanky odor. The freeway is right next to my room which is a downside, but honestly, i can't really hear it that much except when 10 semi's go by in a row like they JUST did. The room was already cool, which was rocking! Its clean, has a decent size TV with great picture quality. The bathroom is very clean, fresh for my shower. The only downside was the shower got super super slipery when wet, but be careful and you'll be fine. No complaints at all. I stayed here due to the horrible ratings of the Colfax inn next door.

Being in rural Iowa, the hotel is literally surrounded by cornfields. Overall the hotel was great and in true Microtel form had a great bed, like sleeping on a cloud. Room was clean and orderly.
