Stayed just one night. Was a budget hotel and with a lot of problems. However if all you are going to do is sleep there for a night it is a much better choice than Des Moines. Des Moines is all overpriced and unsavory. No value.

We got a deeply discounted price for our room--just needed a bed and we were moving on down the road in the morning. Figured--whatever. But, it was surprisingly nice! It appeared the proprietor was awaiting our arrival (didn't appear to be many other guests), checked us in quickly and we headed to our room. It was clean, the bed was...

Stopped for the night on a whim after driving all day. It's just off I80 which was convenient. Front desk staff was polite. Parking lot is poorly lit, so I brought get everything into my room and used. The room itself was OK. Mostly clean, but obviously hadn't been used for a while. A couple of the lights were burned...

The price was great. If you just need a place to sleep and you don't care about any frills, then this is the place to stay. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the staff was friendly. This used to be a Comfort Inn. It is now privately owned, and obviously run on a very tight budget. The...

I'd read several not so great reviews of this place before deciding to go check it out for myself, and I'm so glad that I didn't take those reviews to heart! I called and spoke to a very nice lady who allowed me to check out a couple of rooms before I made a decision! Yes, there is a pool...

Super nice staff. Convenient location close to Altoona and Des Moines right off the interstate. Nice big rooms they are not the normal Cracker Jack boxes that you get for twice the price. Small town atmosphere. I will visit again on my way through.

Strong smell of cigarettes in our non-smoking room. Asked for a change of rooms and were first shown to one where there was someone lying on the bed. Then wound up in a room where we found there was no sheet on the one bed and the sheet on the other bed had a cigarette burn-hole in it. Not looking...

Found this hotel online. We also found that their website in no way depicts this place accurately. As we drove up we were worried. Their bushes were overgrown, weeds, and uncut grass. Entering the hotel was worse. The carpet looks like it hasn't been cleaned since the 70's, the elevator was out of service, the in-door pool was empty and...

We were traveling thru Iowa and decided to book a room. The hotel was not that bad . It was very quiet. Shower was hot. Breakfast was good. The man in charge of breakfast was full of hustle he had a full room for 3 hours straight and still kept everything full and coffee hot. The only downside would be...

It was getting late and we pulled off at this exit for the night. Had two choices, this hotel or a Micro hotel across the road. This one looked fine from the outside so we pulled in and we were one of a few cars there. I went in while my partner stayed with our vehicle right outside the front...

“My room was on the highway side of the building with a parking lot floodlight pointed directly at my window. This meant that I could choose between an attempt at bringing in some fresh air and no possibility of sleep.”
