We've stayed at this motel twice now, in June of 2011 and last month in 2012. This is a railroad-sponsored motel, located at railroad hubs mainly for rail crews but it also caters to travelers,. This facility is conveniently located, well maintained, and reasonably priced. The breakfast-included rate is reasonable and the restaurant coupon is cashed at the next door Penny's Diner -- where the food is good and the portions a bit large.
The special feature of the motel is its focus on accommodating night crews with totally light-proof curtains and sound proof windows. They achieve this goal magnificently with DARK and QUIET rooms.
The 2-star decor includes a home-made wooden shelf for the microwave -- perfectly situated for average height users and a plain wood enclosure for the fridge -- which works very well. The king-sized beds are in excellent conditions and they provide blankets, avoiding those "fashionable" but pesky duvets -- most useful in wintertime Iowa, with theheat off or the windows open. All the lights are CFL's and the rooms are brightly lit if you need the light.
The single shortcoming of the motel is a fairly slow wireless internet connection but the signal is strong throughout the facility.
Bottom line, a great place to stay!
