This Motel was excellent. The room was very clean. The desk clerk was very helpful. Would not hesitate to stay here again. The motel was close to walking trails and eating places. We ere on our way to WI and thought about staying another night,

The hotel looked new and was extremely charming and well maintained. The rooms were wonderful, comfortable bed and very large. The manager was extremely kind, check in was flawless, and they served a wonderful breakfast. After this experience, I will lean towards more stays at a Country Inn and Suites.

Everybody from Cathy Grunwald the General Manager and Sally at the front desk to all of the housekeeping help to Kayla who helps out everywhere, the staff is sure to make your stay very enjoyable. A very nice pool and hot tub and excellent free breakfast are great ammenities of this hotel. It is a little hard to find if you are coming from the east, but it is in front of an awesome biking/hiking trail.

We stayed one night here while visiting my sister at Luther College. The beds were both queens, and both very comfortable. The TV looked pretty new and worked reasonably well, picture quality was not great. The effort the hotel makes to be Eco friendly also gives it good marks. The staff at the front desks and during breakfast were all very courteous and helpful. They had fresh cookies when checking in and the breakfast was reasonably good, but not very well stocked. The biggest complaints from me are the noise and the bathroom. The shower was nice, but the shower head itself was out of place. The door to the bathroom also didn't latch perfectly. Also, whenever someone else took a shower, you could hear the water rushing loudly through pipes, which was a quite obnoxious early in the morning. The internet was also pretty slow, and wouldn't even connect to my iPad. I'd say overall it was great, and would probably stay here again if the noise problem was fixed.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the back side of the building, away from the road

While the property is a bit dated it was clean and quiet. Loved the pool and laundry facilities. Breakfast was included and had tons of choices. With limited choices in Decorah I would not hesitate to stay again. Overall a nice stay.

Room Tip: This is a 2 story property with no elevator. So if you can not carry things to the second floor be...

We have been staying here for 8 years when we return to Decorah, The pool area is fun for the kids and the adults like the hot tub, The staff goes out of their way to make sure we have everything, We are always greeted with a smile. And they make fresh cookies which are awesome. The rooms are clean and don't smell. That says a lot if you travel. This place is always busy and seem to book fast. We will return.
Keep up the great job.

Room Tip: I'd stay on the main level, the 2nd floor has no elevator.
