Each room unique theme. Our room was an Amana life theme. Many antiques. Very clean, comfortable. Many homey touches throughout the property. Jo was very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was delicious. Would definitely stay there again. Ample parking and easy to find.

We have visited the Amana colonies each of the last 3 years as my wife runs in the annual half marathon race and we have family living nearby in Iowa City. This year we decided to stay at Zubers and we were so glad that we did. The cost is about the same as a typical hotel chain but the... More

We had a lovely room (Four Seasons). The room and hotel were spotless. We had a little difficulty getting information over the phone as to where to dine at 8pm, but it all worked out, The hostess and staff were very pleasant, and the breakfast was excellent.

3rd visit staying here. Love it. Treat you very nice! Very accommodating! Main Amana very close to drive to, but off the beaten path, which is nice. Themed rooms decorated accordingly. Nice history of becoming the B&B. Jo is a definite asset to the place! She is very friendly, courteous and helpful. Will go again!
