“Affordable and Very Clean in location Convenient to Terrible's Casino”
Reviewed September 25, 2011

We enjoyed our short overnight stay at this small motel in the center of a small Iowa town. Rather than book a room at the nearby Terrible's Lakeside Casino Hotel for twice as much money as this place cost, we slept here and are glad that we did. It's just several minutes away from the casino yet far from the maddening crouds. This motel is also close to a few eateries that the caisno is definitely in lack of (see my review of the casino for details oin this).

The lady (don't know her name but I just call her Chick-a-Boom) who checked us in on Friday afternoon was especially helpful and friendly in attending to our questions and needs.

While we didn't use them, a fridge and microwave were in the room. The room was in good repair with only very minor imperfections but very clean.

The mattress was firmer than I'm used to but I suppose that's a matter of personal preference. (I'm used to a pillow-top mattress).

My only complaint is the bathroom door hinges need oiling as they were loud enough to wake me.

We'd definitely stay there again and would recommend it to others.

halfway point on our trip to Missouri from Wyoming, Kat was especially helpful and cheery, with decent pricing and amazingly quite for being right on Hwy 34. my only complaint is the lack of parking when pulling a trailer, it's a good thing my trailer is only about 12 ft overall. Very Clean and homey, will definitely stay again if we go thru there

We stayed at the Evergreen Inn because it was a good location for us--about half way on a long trip. We just wanted a clean and reasonably priced room for the night. But what a pleasant stay it turned out to be. Kat, who checked us in, was especially friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back on our next trip through Iowa, and we would recommend it highly. It is worth the effort to make a phone call instead of making reservations online!

Clean "Mom&Pop" right out of the "50s. Helpful staff (at desk afternoons and evenings only) clean, cozy, knotty pine room, updated shower, quiet window air conditionner, very reasonably priced, around $50 per night. We were concerned about traffic noise since the motel is right on highway 34 (about a mile from the interstate), but with the AC on low, no problem. We slept well. We will definitely stay at the Evergreen Inn again.

Room Tip: If you need ice, it comes from the refirgerator in the kitchen just off the office. Get it the night...

On an 8000 mile cross country trip (half camping half motels), in which cost effectiveness is important, found this place perhaps my favorite. Very clean and homey rooms, pleasant and helpful owners and other guests.

I am a traveling salesman. I pay my own expenses, so I don't stay at the 4 star corporate properties. I saw the blue "Lodging" sign on the interstate listed The Evergreen Inn, so I pulled off and drove to the inn. It looked immaculate from the outside and when I checked in found that it was just as immaculate inside as well. This was a good value. Nice clean room. Couldn't have asked for a better stay. I'll be back.

Nice place to stay. They provided great service. Had an extended stay throughout the summer months. I, along with my co-workers, stay at a lot of different places that are value oriented hotels/motels, and this has been the best so far. Great value and great owners.
