“Wonderful Feeling of Home Here”
Reviewed December 17, 2008

I chose Heritage Inn from a web search of the area and the Always been a non-smoking hotel caught my eye. So I called to make a reservation, though it easily could have been made on line, it's always my choice to speak directly. I was so glad I did as it was a place I knew I'd enjoy staying as the concern for a guests needs was apparently immediately. It has been a long time, and I travel a good deal, since I've encountered such a family feel about a place.

I enjoyed the luxury of the King Suite with all its amenities; a space large enough to entertain guests, many chairs, a couch and a wet bar and fridge, as well as a good working office area. And it was clear that anything I might need that they could provide would be available, so Very accommodating.

I enjoy the spa and the pool as wonderful way to chase off the cold and the added benefit of a shower right there to rinse off.

I will return for both business and pleasure and feel I've a home away from home in the area. I've already recommended to several friends.

Staying at the Heritage Inn, Amana was like being at home. Sandi and Gita Shah treated us and our grandchildren like family. We enjoyed the convenience of the location for excellent restaurants and shopping. Our grandchildren enjoyed the pool and hospitality. We would definitely stay there again if the opportunity arises and highly recommend it to anyone we know that may be going to that area.

Staying at the Heritage Inn is like staying with family because it's owners, Gita and Sandi Shah, make you feel welcome the minute you approach the desk. Their establishment is exceptionally clean and well cared for. Even tho we stay only on one weekend a year when attending an Iowa football game, they have the uncanny ability of remembering us and are pleased to see us again. And upon checking out, we are invited to stop in for a chat and/or a cup of coffee whenever we are in the area. That's the kind of hospitality that keeps us comning back to our favorite inn - and inn keepers!

We stayed here in August on a cross-country drive. Our first room was filthy: mold stains in the bathtub, a broken shower, mildew everywhere, a toilet that wasn't seated correctly and so leaked, a floor that hadn't been swept in weeks, and bedbugs! We were moved to a second room that was not much better. The bathroom was still disgusting, the comforters and blankets were visibly stained, the floor was not as crusty but certainly still not clean, and there was mold growing in the AC unit. We didn't see bedbugs, but considering the state of this new room, I wouldn't be surprised if they were there. The problems weren't restricted to our room, either. The pool and hot tub had not been cleaned in a long time (the bottom of both was brown and the water very cloudy), and the security keycard locks on the building's outer doors didn't work--we could open the doors all day and all night without needing our keycard. We tried to get another room somewhere else, but had no luck, so just made due. It was bad enough that we considered eating the cost for the room and sleeping in a rest stop instead.

Will not stay here again on our travels.

Our visit to the Heritage Inn was absolutely perfect in every way, and our drive from Omaha well worth the visit. The ambiance of the Inn lobby is delightful, the room reasonably priced, spacious and clean, the location close to the Amana Colonies...and the proprietor the most helpful I've ever encountered. We will most definitely stay again when we revisit Amana.

Also greatly appreciated was the fact that the Inn accepts pets...my African Grey parrot had a great time too!

Thank you so very much, Sandi!
