AmericInn does happen to be Grundy Center's only motel, but that's not what makes it the best one! It's the best because it's locally-owned by folks who still care about hospitality and it's staffed by good people who take pride in their work and their property.
The rooms aren't fancy and don't offer much of a view, but they are spacious, clean and quiet. There's plenty of free parking, an awesome (handicap-accessible) pool and hot tub, nightly cookies at the front desk, onsite laundry facilities, and a complimentary breakfast complete with waffles and biscuits and gravy.
There's a restaurant and bar (Johnny Ray's) adjacent to the motel parking lot, and a Dollar Store on the other side, so although the motel is located on the edge of town, it's both convenient and safe.
The Grundy Center AmericInn is a country town treasure... I highly recommended this property! More
