“Army Reunion at Grinnel Comfort Inn”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

We were very happy with the accomandations in your Comfort Inn. The staff, from the manager to the housekeepping people were great. Some of these former army men had not seen each other for over 50 years. They wanted a place to be stay and get reaqainted again. The Grinnell Comfort Inn provided a wonderful 3 days of an at home feeling. Thank you for being there for all 25 of us. 41st engineers

Thank you for your comments. Your group was so much fun! Everyone enjoyed talking with them, even other guests in the hotel! The best part was when the guys saw each other for the first time in 50 years! It truly brought tears to your eyes.

We truly appreciate everything the veterans and their families have sacrified and done for our Country, so we may all live free! Thank you and God bless!!!

A solid choice for off the interstate stay. Better than many other comfort inns i've stayed in. Staff was helpful, rooms were spacious comfortable, and clean. Just what you're looking for lon a road trip, but don't always get.

I've stayed here a few times and find it always friendly and clean. I was given a King Suite last week and very much enjoyed the expansiveness of this room. There is a good variety for breakfast and it has always been good. I'm not a 'pool person' so can't review that. There's a nice patio off the swimming pool that's got plenty of seating.

Room Tip: There's some traffic noise in the front of the motel, so you may want to ask for a room off the...

Nice place, clean, big rooms and quiet. They'd get 5 stars if they used duvets or double sheeted the blanket. They said it was next on their improvement list, they have just replaced all TVs with
HD flat screens. A little pricy, but Comfort Inn is running a promo that gives you a free night after staying 2 places, so it was worth the $100 for the room
Nice place for pets, with ample areas for doggies to walk.

Thank you for your wonderful feedback! We are thrilled to have all of our new 32" flat panel TVs installed, the guests are really loving them! Yes, we are also excited for the new bedding program. We love what we have, but enjoy having the property constantly updated and refreshed.

Thank you again!!

We arrived later than planned & the staff worked well with our group. My room was great. It was clean, large, comfortable, and had a refrigerator. The internet worked well. Only complaint about the room would be the walls were thin. I could hear the neighbor's TV and conversations easily...not what was said, just voices. The breakfast was very good. Many choices of hot items as well as the standard cold foods offered at most hotels. The parking lot was small & didn't go around the building. Large vehicles have to park out on the street....do not pull into the parking lot unless you are confident in backing out of it. There's no room to turn around or park if your vehicle is large or you're towing anything.

Love your comment header "stormy April Weekend 2012". Wow, what a storm that blew in that night! I'm so happy everyone made it safe and sound. We are sending many prayers to those who were negatively impacted by the storms.

Thank you so much for your feedback. I do apologize for not getting the information to you that our parking lot did not wrap around the hotel. Your comments are a great reminder that the little things make a big difference!

I'm thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. It was a wild and windy weekend and glad you found your way to us! If there is anything we can do for you in the future, please don't hesitate to let us know!

Thank you again!

I have been traveling to Grinnell for the past several years on a regular basis to visit my son who attends Grinnell College. The staff is so friendly and helpful!!! The hotel is the newest one in Grinnell. Rooms are always so clean, beds are very comfortable...and I love all the extra pillows. I can't imagine a better place to stay in Grinnell.

Room Tip: I always like the top floor on the back side of the hotel which looks out across the fields.

I have been traveling to Grinnell for business and picked the Comfort Inn for my first stay out of the 5 or 6 hotels within a few blocks. I have looked no further since discovering them. I run a cleaning company and I tend to be very picky on the cleanliness of my room and the whole hotel. I have been very happy here! Very friendly staff and very accomodating to my needs. I reccommend to anyone traveling on business as well as families! My first contact was Chris R. at the front desk and she is top-notch!

Room Tip: All rooms I have had have been quiet.
