“Looks are deceiving in this case”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2011

If you drive up and think this place looks sketchy, you probably are not alone, except that is safe and a decent, quiet, and inexpensive place to stay for the night. With tax it cost me less than 50$.

My room was clean, as was the bathroom. It was quiet in the hotel, despite being well occupied. The front staff are very nice and accommodating. The cleaning service are polite and wait until after ten before knocking on the door. It is conveniently located, but slightly buffered from the main road.

I had to go out to my car several times late at night to get things and repack, and the neighborhood is quiet with no one wandering about.

It also has a high speed wifi with a reliable connection, and I was in one of the furthest rooms from the center reception area.

It is a basic, no frills hotel, but for that it is very good. Oh, and it also has a morning comp breakfast, though I didn't go down there so I cannot attest to it's substance or quality; but it is free on an already reasonable price for the room.

I was very skeptical about staying at what looked like an old mom and pop hotel. When I opened the door to my room, I found new carpet, new bathroom interior, new furniture, a fridge and microwave. Rooms are all on one level and accessible from the interior or exterior. There is a decent restaurant right across the street, nothing fancy, but pizza and steaks are decent for the price. This is also a pet friendly motel with plenty of grassy area. I was in Le Mars for a dog show. The location is very handy to the fairgrounds.

A couple buts; 1) there is a train track nearby and if you are a light sleeper it may waken you. Front desk staff messed up my reservation, had me only for one night despite my calling twice to confirm the reservation. The woman at the desk didn't seem to know how to deal with the Expedia reservation, and it took quite a while to get checked in. On phone calls I got a person from India who was friendly, but quite difficult to understand.

None-the-less, I have stayed in much, much more expensive hotels and had far worse accommodations. Thjs motel is a little gem for the money.
