Cresco Motel
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Cresco
Reviewed August 10, 2014

We road trip often and love love love the convenience of motels where you park your vehicle a few feet away from your room door and often seek them out.

We were delighted with our two-night stay at the Cresco Motel and plan to stay again when in the area.

The room was super clean, quiet, had an updated bathroom, fridge/microwave, and somewhat surprisingly, enough sockets to plug in chargers for all our electronic gizmos! The internet connection was fast and strong.

Ali was a great host who went the extra mile for us.

The Cresco Motel is a great value! Stay here, you'll like it too!

Stayed here with my mom and sister for a family visit and was very happy with my choice. We booked a room with three beds and it was perfect for us, roomy and comfortable. As others have noted, it was clean and a good value. Our first morning, we were dying for some coffee and went down to the office to see if it was available. We were told it was not ready yet and he would call our room and let us know when it was. We were pleasantly surprised when five minutes later he delivered a pot of coffee, cream, sugar and cups and stirrers! We really appreciated the wonderful service and next time in Cresco, we'll be sure to stay here again.

We were attending a Luther College event in Decorah but there was not a decent room to be found there. Cresco is only 20 min drive. This room was extremely clean with fairly new carpet and a flat screen tv (small but good reception). The bed was comfortable enough and we slept great. There was hot coffee in the office early and our hosts were very hospitable. Would stay here again.

Two adults and a boy of 16 years of age comprised our party. A reservation via telephone was made a day ahead, using a website for the motel that showed a photo of the room we requested. The motel is conventional, with parking just outside of the room. The motel is set back from the highway enough to be quiet, and no disturbing traffic noise was noted.Check-in is out front, near the roadway, and the motel clerk seemed to live in quarters connected to the office, alerted by a door chime. The room was a 2 bed arrangement, double beds, but they seemed of rather small dimension, close quarters but sufficient. The room also had a minimal desk, and a wall-mounted air system which worked well on a hot day. The bath was also small, with a tub-shower combination. All was clean and tidy, and our small pet dog was also permitted. Not many frills, but if sleep and rest, and not much more is what you want, the Cresco Motel can fill the bill. It has wireless internet also!

We stayed here for Luther College's "Family Weekend" - me, spouse, and 14-year-old in one room, my parents in another. The rooms were very clean, shower was great, everything very quiet. The people in the office were not all that friendly, though. Not surly or rude, just bored/tired. Great price though and I was so worried it might be dirty/noisy/full of bedbugs or other bugs, overall a pleasant experience. We'd prefer to stay in Decorah, but we'd consider this again if need be.

I have stayed at this facility in the past - very nice both times. You can't beat the interior of the rooms for the price. From the second you walk into your room, you can smell the "cleanliness" of the air. You know that you are walking into a clean room before you even turn the lights on. Much of the room has been updated, and the place is very comfortable.

Do not expect all the frills of major hotels (no shampoo or breakfast bar) - but if you are looking for a clean, nice, and affordable place to crash for the night (or for a week) - this is a great place to do it! Have stayed here before, will stay again if my travels bring me the the Cresco, IA area!

(I travel all over the country with my job, and I contribute on EVERY hotel I stay in. Trip Advisor has been a great tool for me, and I contribute fairly, for both good and bad facilities.)

Small Quiet Comfortable Rooms. If you ever stayed at a Super 8 or other Motels that have all the rooms inside and the entrance doors to the rooms facing each other you know how noisy it is. Not Here, The rooms all have outside entrance doors. The best sleep I have had in a Motel in ages. It's not the Ritz, but it's clean, quiet and inexpensive.
