“Great Choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2011

We stayed here one night enroute back to Michigan based on other reviews.
Once we checked in we found the room to large and very clean. The hotel is relatively new and as such everything is updated and fresh. The room had a flat screen TV mounted on the wall, and lots of space.
The beds and pillows were very comfortable and we had a quite night and a good sleep.
In the morning there is what I would Continetal Plus breakfast ( Eggs, sausage, Bacon) in addition to the standard breakfast. They have a seperate room with a lot of space.
No complaints here.

My daughter and I stayed here the night before a program for prospective students at the local college. We booked by a call to the hotel in advance, and they matched the internet discounters while guaranteeing two double beds and non-smoking. The follow up e-mail was prompt and correct, and or 1am arrival did not cause any problem.

This is not a new property. It is a little old style and worn, but it was pretty nice and clean and had a good looking pool area we never had time to try. The room was large and well equip, with very comfortable beds and pillows. It was dark and quiet, easy parking, right off the highway and moments from the downtown and college, and adequate to our needs in all ways. We did have a problem with the sheets on one of the beds in the room we were first given looking dirty (everything else was very clean and I think the maid just missed changing that bed), but the desk clerk was very apologetic and quickly switched us to a different room that was clean. Water pressure was good, included breakfast pretty typical and fairly good (small continental with a waffle maker, toast etc.) Check out was fine and we will stay there again if ever in the area.

Room Tip: There is no elevator, so if stairs are a problem or you have lots of bags keep that in mind.

My family visited Grinnell for a little pheasant hunting this October. We made our reservations last minute but got a very nice room. The accommodations were well kept and clean. What really made our stay was the helpful staff - both at the front desk and in the breakfast room. Everyone was very friendly.

Just off the interstate with a great steakhouse and gas station close by. Room was nice and clean if not fancy. My wife and I were not looking for fancy and this place was a pleasant surprise. Beds were good and the breakfast was very nice.

I arrived later in the evening. Front desk staff was friendly. They have a pool, but I did not get to use it.

The internet worked great. The only thing I did not like was the huge spider I threw a shoe at. I know that happens, but then the next morning I saw another bug in the bathroom. By all means, they are a clean hotel and I know these things happen at times, so I can not really rate them down because they were very clean. There was a king size bed that was very comfy and a great flat screen tv. There was a couch in there with a nice desk. I did not get a chance to try out the shower though. There breakfast was great. I am not sure about the person who complained about the breakfast. Maybe it was just a bad day. They had waffles, OJ, bagels, cereal, sausage, eggs and it was enjoyable.

The entrance was very nice with a couch and a fireplace.

This hotel was clean, the breakfast was good, and everything worked as it should. There was even a nice steakhouse and a gas station next door so we didn't have to travel into a town to eat or get gas. The pillows could've been a bit fluffier. The bed, otherwise, was very comfortable. The walls must be a bit thin because I could hear noise from another room one night.
