Went to Prairie Meadow race track/casino and found this motel right across from track. It was the most reasonable in the immediate area. It has just been updated and although basic it was very clean and beds comfy. Included free wi-fi, refrigerator, coffee maker, plus a breakfast which included scrambled eggs and sausage one day and biscuits and gravy plus... More

Such great service, had no trouble whatsoever. It was in a great location. My friends and I had an incredible time. Everything was clean, comfortable, and enjoyable. Whenever I am back in this area I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

I had stayed at this property in its former life - as The Settle Inn - and vowed I would NEVER RETURN. When I discovered the property had been taken over by another chain, I decided to try it. I first noted the steep increase in the room rates - at least DOUBLE - thinking it better be better. Well,... More

The property was recently converted to a Comfort Inn and has been remodeled. The finishes are relatively new (as of June 2015), but a bit of the "old" peeks through if you look closely at the finishing details. However, the room was clean and comfortable, though the air-conditioning unit struggled to remove the humidity from the room so it felt... More

My husband and I were on vacation--had driven all day and wanted to find a place to relax and stay the night. We had made a reservation ahead of time; when checking in the staff put us in one room but gave us keycards for another room. She had remembered that she had written the incorrect number on the keycard... More

We traveled from Kentucky for the horse races in Altoona IA 6/12-6/13 The Casino and horse track is directly across the street so for us the location was ideal. The hotel has been renovated in the past 60 days so new beds, pillows, carpet, paint...the rate was $100 less than the Casino and $40 cheaper than most others in area.... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for three nights for the State Track and Field meet. When we first arrived, everything seemed fine. The rooms have been updated and are now much more modern than in the old photos posted here. The room was clean, other than a large wad of hair found in the bathroom. The wifi was super... More

Hotel was clean, well staffed and comfortable. Front desk staff was very good. I will stay here again! Nice indoor pool and hot tun too. Breakfast was eggs, sausage, gravy, waffles and chipped beef as well as the usual other suspects.

We have stayed several times while visiting the nearby casino. The rooms are a little dated, but always clean with a good free breakfast and the staff has always been friendly. We liked the shuttle bus to and from the casino. We enjoyed the hot tub

2 nights early December, 2014- comfortable room. Nice and assisting staff. Will stay here again. Did not use the pool, but look appealing. Check in was easy. Parking plentiful. Room was clean - could not ask for more. Questikon - why does trip advisiorn ask for 200 minimum characters

“Our Tip for you is to stay across the Street at Adventureland Inn.”
  • Toilet build-up where water enters the toilet bowl at top of bowl. This is long-term buildup
  • Our Room Shower Shelf area. Distressed and in need of better investment and maintenance upkeep.
