“A Comforting Refuge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

We were blessed to be able to share a few nights at this sweet motel.We had to be in the area for a trip to the U. of Iowa Medical Center. It was a kind and very welcoming place to be in a difficult time. The folks who run the Inn treated us above and beyond with kindness and helpfulness. The Inn is EXTREMELY clean and I am very fussy about this! Kalona is a darling little town and we plan to come back and enjoy it one day.Truly I felt as though nothing was too big or to small for them to help us with. A huge thank you to all involved.Patti M.

We've stayed here several times when visiting family in the area. The rooms are always very clean, and the service is friendly. Breakfast isn't great, and the motel isn't fancy, but it's certainly worth the price.

Room Tip: Even though there's no elevator, we always ask for an upstairs room, so we're not so close t...

We travel through Iowa every year on our way to Oshkosh, WI. and make a point to stay at this motel at least one way if not both coming and going. It is well maintained and comfortable and well worth the price. Staff are friendly and helpful. Kalona is a lovely place to spend a little time with it's mix of shops downtown as well as Amish owned businesses around the area. The community is diverse and welcoming.

Room Tip: We like the upstairs rooms in the new addition. Clean and quiet.

I would keep driving to Iowa city for cheaper rates and friendlier people. The shower was not great. After driving all day I would like a nice shower - the knob broke off into the tub - either HOT or COLD water nothing warm because I could not turn the knob. The next morning during check out I was not allowed to go back to my room to even get my phone because I had a dog with me. I just feel the service could have been better. For the free WiFi you need a password which I didn't get and by the time I got back to my room it was too late to call and get it. I think it is worth the farther drive a bit to Iowa City and more selection of hotels - maybe and hopefully with better coffee. Plus for not allowing pets there was pet food on the floor of our room and trash under the beds.

The staff were so helpful and went the extra mile to make sure we had a wonderful stay.As part of a group of 27 ladies ,who had travelled through storms and pouring rain, we were greeted with hot cups of tea, coffee,and cakes ,and a friendly smile. Kalona is a real hidden gem,full of history and delightful people and interesting shops.

Kalona, IA is not a town you will pass by flying through Iowa on the interstate. It is a small town in South East Iowa where people of many cultures and backgrounds live together peacfully. The Pull'R Inn sits right at the corner of Hwy 1 and Hwy 22. This little locally owned motel is welcoming and the staff is always friendly. We have stayed here many times over the years on our way to Wisconsin and have often routed our trip especially to stay in Kalona. The first year we stayed at the Pull'R Inn we stayed in the newer addition which we believed to have been just built because it was impeccably clean. We have learned over the years that this cleanliness continues and the newer addition feels just as new as the first time we stayed.

We stayed at the Pull'r Inn Motel over Family Weekend and it was awesome. Most of the hotels in Coralville/Iowa City raise their prices to over $150/$200 for a small double bed room for football weekends. Pull r' Inn is about 10-15 minutes south of Iowa City and was incredibly clean/friendly and large rooms for reasonable price $70 for double queen and $90 for a suite. If you don't mind a little drive - this is an awesome place to stay. Nice continental breakfast in the am also.
