One expects an inn in the Amana colonies in Iowa to be quaint and charming, this inn takes it to another level. On a 1 to 10 in terms of hospitality they are around 14. The inn itself is in perfect repair, soundly built of heavy stone with a staff that honestly care about the cleanliness and upkeep of the...

Very relaxing, wonderful room, and the breakfast was great. Highly recommend this hotel. We stayed in the Red room with a hot tub and a large room with a king bed. The pictures of the rooms on the website are the same so no surprises.

Great location for spending the night in The Amana Colonies. The rooms are charming and comfortable but still roomy. We expected a simple continental breakfast but in addition to fresh fruit and Amana breads, there was a selection of homemade sweet and savory casseroles.

Zuber's is a wonderful hotel with true Amana colonies decor. It is impeccably clean and adorned with so many beautiful artifacts.

Our family of three had a memorable and very enjoyable stay at Zuber's Homestead Hotel in Homestead! It is more like a B&B, with lots of character, antiques galore, delicious breakfast served in a beautifully decorated common area with tables and chairs, sofas, game table, and piano!

I am sorry you were disappointed with your stay with us. I have discussed, with our cook, your feelings on the breakfast and will take your comments into consideration. The OJ is a concentrate for use by restaurants and is not canned. However, both are mixed with the water from the public water system. Your comments regarding the coffee may...
