First of all, I'm very lost why this motel has gotten any good reviews. It was unclean, with a space heater sitting on a chair to heat our room. The window was cracked and taped, one of the beds had a torn sheet. There was no hair dryer in the room, and none available. No ice, donuts from a box... More

Management was excellent. Was very quiet and relaxing for me on a weekend without my children who had respite care. I definitely will be back! Thank you! It is also very close to Hyvee, Fareway, Caseys and Dollar General.

Stayed here last night. This place is easy on the wallet. It's clean as well. It seems close to the Amtrak station too. It is outdated, but if you're like me you don't care one way or another. Actually the throwback look is appealing to me because it reminds me of when I was a kid. I'll probably stay again.... More

About a month ago (beginning of February), I had to remove what I could salvage of my father's library of books, from the house the books were being stored in, due to a fire. During the demolition, a gas main was damaged and we had to evacuate the area. We had 5 kids with us and it was extremely cold... More

I checked in a bit late in the evening on a bitterly cold night. The motel is older but clean and has all the basics you need, comfortable bed, microwave, fridge and under $50. Owner is friendly. Heat wasn't sufficient for me but I had my own personal space heater so I was fine. Nice room darkening curtains and the... More

Have stayed here several times when in the area. Not fancy, but nice clean rooms with everything you need for a comfortable nights stay. The manager is always very nice and helpful if you need something. Can not be beat for the price. I will be back

I pay my own expenses and look for clean, value priced motels when I travel. The area has several motels such as Super 8 or Americinn that run about 80 bucks. This place is under $50 and has what I need. A clean place to lay down without the frills. Friendly staff!! I'll be back.

The room was adequate in what I would consider an older property. We were stranded in the area without a car in a terrible ice and snowstorm. The manager was very friendly and helpful. He was very accommodating with our checkout time at no extra charge as we waited for a tow truck service to get to us.

I stayed there on a Friday night. The room was very large, quiet, and everything worked. The manager and his family were friendly and accomodating. I had to do a little mechanical work on my vehicle and they gave permission and offered tools or light if needed. If you are looking for something different from the typical chain property, stay...
