Called 6 motels in Newton and Des Moines as we were driving through Iowa late in the evening. Prices were all $69 and up. Saw the sign on the interstate and called. $62 with tax and their pet policy is fair. $10 deposit returned after the check the room for damages. So much fairer than $10 extra that they keep! Room was large with 2 big chairs, microwave and frig. Clean and quiet and the bed and pillows were amazing! Breakfast was simple but fresh and nutritious. We stay at motels all over the country and approximately 180 nights a year so we have seen it all! We have marked this one as "top notch" in our book!

This Inn is terrible. Their Pool has Black Mold all over the ceiling and some on floor area. Took the staff three times to find a card key for a room that we could open and use. One of the staff knocked on the door right before check out and came right in room. This staff person never even waited for anyone to respond to knock. This place had a handful of lodgers when we stayed. The cleaning staff was creepy. The TV in the room is an old analog version remote did not even work. The jacuzzi has been broken for two years and owner has not fixed. Find another place this is a bad place to stay.

Stop at the exit before or after Colfax. This place wasn't worth $69. Found a coupon in the book from the gas station after I spent the night but they wouldn't honor it in the morning. Older Comfort Inn that is now a mom and pop motel. Dated decor - toss the bedspead (ugh). Pillows were awful. It was clean, but that's about it. "Breakfast" was a very old waffle iron that looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years, watered-down orange juice, stale cereal, and weak coffee. Not the least bit friendly, the owners need to put some money into this place or forget it.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

The breakfast was a disappointment ! They had a minimal selection and had no butter, but offered toast and English muffins . There was jelly but again no butter! Waffles but no butter. Pool was cloudy and hot tub was broken.

We stayed here for two nights, never again. At 1:00 in the morning a couple were trying to get in our room, because the desk had just assigned them the same room. We had four people in our room, but they only gave us towels for three. Then had to wait while they washed more towels in the laundry room the patrons used. They hot tub was broke and looked like it had been for a while. The ceiling was peeling in the swim area and they did not have enough towels for patrons. The breakfast area was dirty and grimy and there was hairy in the gravy. YUCK!!! Will never stay here again.

Room Tip: Pick another hotel.
