Independently owned means a lot to me as we also manage a hotel ourselves. The staff is wonderful and accommodating. Both times we have stayed were in king bed units and they were most comfortable.The rooms are clean and cozy with that personal touch not a franchise decor. Will stay again and again when we're in the area.

We got a very nice 2 Queen size bed room for $62.00. The room was very clean and you can park your vehicle right by your door. It is located on the top of a hill with hundreds of acres of farm land around it. No congestion, plenty of quiet and fresh air. The air conditioner under the window appeared to be a brand new unit. The tub had a safety grab rail which was very handy. The next morning I mentioned that the mini-fridge was not working. When we came in that afternoon, they had installed a brand new unit.

The only thing preventing an excellent rating was the Wi-Fi. Really, really, really, slow. Useable for text driven E-mails, but not for pictures or streaming video. Many drop outs. I discovered the reason. I went down to the ice machine and discovered a cheap residential Wi-Fi setting on top of the ice machine. When I took my laptop down there and sat 6 feet away from the antenna, I got blazing speed. If you are a "road warrior" and like to operate out of your room, best go somewhere else or get a room next to the ice machine.

Here we are on day 3 of our journey from Reno, NV to Rochester, NY. Our goal each evening is to find a clean, comfortable budget motel. In the Crest Motel we did find clean and comfortable, but pricier than we have found the past couple nights. All the hotels/motels in this area (Amanda Colonies) seem to be priced on the higher side, so plan accordingly if price is your primary concern. There was only one previous review on Trip Advisor, so I got most of my information from Yahoo Reviews.

Bathroom was spotless, the room was freshly painted and the funiture was nicer than you would typically find in a motel room. Free internet without the hassle of a password. The room with two queen beds was quite large. The beds could have been more comfotable, but were adequate.

The woman at check-in was very nice and the owner I assume. Parking was easy, with a spot just outside the room just like I like it. The Crest is pet friendly with a small fee. It's located on a hill within a few hundred yards of Interstate 80, but very quiet.

The Crest was a nice find, but not a bargain by any means...but I would recommend staying here if you are in the area.

The Crest motel sits on a hill just west of the outlet mall at the Williamsburg Iowa exit on I-80. It's a moderately priced independently owned "mom and pop" motel. Due to its location its very quiet. There are several fast food resturants in the outlet mall which is within walking distance. The front desk staff is very knowledgable with the nearby Amana Colonies and can direct you to places to visit as well as good eating spots especially in Amana (the largest of the colonies). The motel is a well cared for old/traditional design facility with exterior entrys and parking at your door. Most of the building is one story. Rooms have homey/country touches and are very clean. This is a great alternative to the chain motels in the area. I have stayed at this motel several times and have never been disappointed.
