“Overall good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Only motel in a small Iowa town, so really have no choice. However, was quiet. esp. if stay on the second floor and away from Johnnie Ray restaurant where the food and service is horrid. Love the chocolate chip cookies at the end of the day- nice welcoming touch upon arrival. Plus staff is very accommodating.

I was in town for business at the local hospital. Arrived at 4pm on a Friday expecting to sleep until my shift started at midnight. No luck--kids running up and down the hall screaming. I figured since it was probably a kids birthday party, I let it go. Got off work at noon on Saturday, was up all day listening to kids screaming, blowing whistles and running up and down the halls. Going on 36 hours now with no sleep despite calling the front desk, I am not very happy. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

This was a problem-free visit and the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. We were a large group staying here as part of a family event and we were treated very hospitably. Room size was big and the handicap access shower was easy to use. The restaurant next door had above-average food and it was reasonably priced.

This was my first stay at an AmericInn and I was very pleased. The dollar value was excellent and the facility was clean with large rooms and friendly staff. In addition there was a restaurant right across he parking lot.

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!

Stayed here for 1 night. For some reason, I thought this was a new hotel....maybe new to AmericInn, but not a new hotel. Our room one the first floor was recently carpeted, but the bed and pillows were not the greatest. Staff was friendly, breakfast was the usual fare with waffles and sausage gravy.
I would stay here again, but I would ask for more pillows.
The restaurant next door was good and convenient.

This was my first experience at an AmericInn. We were in Iowa to attended a funeral. This hotel offers a real homey feel with wonderful midwestern hospitality. Certainly a great value per dollar. Compared to where we're from Grundy Center is a real small town but what surprised us most was that this hotel parking lot was filled up every night. Lots of area construction workers and traveling sales people. The only real complaint we had was that housekeeping didn't service our room during our 2 night stay. Yes we were in the room most early mornings. She even greeted us with a warm hello every morning but never asked about the status of our room...too bad she missed the tips we left her! Again we were fine and weren't in the mood to chase her down. Otherwise, an excellent stay and we look forward to staying here again when we come back to visit the folks.

Room Tip: Park Place restaurant right down the road next to the park/waterpark in Grundy Center is AWESOME! Be...
