The weather was bad and we stopped early. There was construction was also at the exit. But I am glad we got off the Interstate. Even though it was early we were welcomed in and the room was gotten ready immediately. The lobby was a welcoming place to wait. Across the street was the original Cabela's.

Enjoyed a good night's rest on comfortable beds in a clean and quiet room. Check in and check out was uncomplicated. Wifi was operational. Clean remote control. The room was very large - it was nice to be able to spread out.

Poor experience w/mold smell throughout the halls, rooms, beds, etc. I was unable to sleep because of the allergic reaction to this, including my eyes and throat. Do not recommend this hotel at this time. It needs major renovations.

We have a great room next to the breakfast room and so convenient. Could stay here forever! This place is about seven years old and tastily decorated. There is a restaurant and bar but we didn't have time to check it out. We were just here for one night

Hotel was very clean, pool was fine - not too cold, but not warm, breakfast was good with plenty of options. There were not enough people working in the morning, but the staff was friendly and working hard to accommodate everyone. We would likely stay here again when traveling that way.

You can tell they are trying hard on a remodel. They have put in new fixtures, furniture,paint but it still smells old and musty. The hallways were kind of dark and you didn't need a key to get in the building. The wifi was also not strong enough to stay connected. All that being said The bed was comfy and...

When visiting our son at college, we always stay at the Best Western in Grinnell. The rooms are nice, sleeping is excellent, and the breakfast works for our busy schedule. Would recommend this hotel again and again. Any issues we have had have been quickly resolved.

The Inn was pleasant - the room well appointed; only problem was the heating unit cycled every 2 minutes and was extremely noisy. If the unit were fixed it would be an excellent rating. The rooms exuded luxury - which was surprising for middle of Iowa. The steak house next door added to the stay in a positive way. Good...
