“"Great place for a group getaway"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

My husband and I stayed here two nights while visiting the Amana Colonies in Iowa. It was recommended to us by our daughter who had visited with a group of her friends as a weekend getaway. While here we witnessed a group of seniors who were having a great time enjoying breakfast together and preparing for the activities they were going to enjoy that day. They would gather again in the evening for cards and games. This is the perfect spot if you are considering this area of Iowa. There are 15 rooms of different configurations. Our room was quite large with a queen bed that was most comfortable. Breakfast was light but filling. The staff was most accommodating. The hotel is charming as it is in an old building in a quiet village.
There is an outside area to be enjoyed also if weather permits.

My husband and I have been going to Zuber's once a year for the last 5 years, we totally love the themed rooms. The rooms are very clean and they have the best beds I have ever slept in. Everyone that works at the hotel is very friendly and kind. We feel that the breakfast has been lacking the last couple of year but it is still worth having. We will be back every year!

Room Tip: Every room has been amazing

This is the second time my wife and I stayed at Zuber's and I can say without a doubt that it is one of the best places to stay while visiting the Amana area. Not only was the room awesome but the morning breakfast was the absolute best. I can't imagine having a better to stay.

My sister and I spent the night here on July 24th. What a nice place to stay. It's homey and quiet and the people who work there are so nice! We arrived late due a delay in our flight into Cedar Rapids and the lady at the desk helped us to our room and shortly afterwards brought us some fresh homemade iced tea.
Breakfast the next morning was all homemade and absolutely delicious!

We spent four nights at the hotel. The staff all performed multiple jobs, from receptionist to chief cook and dishwasher. All staff members were friendly and helped make our stay enjoyable. The room was well laid out on the first floor in the northwest corner. Breakfast was very delicious and included various interesting bread pudding and quiche dishes, fruit, hot oatmeal, Amana English muffins which were the very best, orange juice, coffee and more. Great variety of dishes.
We chose the location because it was close to Belle Plaine, North Liberty, and the Cedar Rapids airport, plus the reviews were very positive. We spent time enjoying food in Amana, visiting the lily lake, visiting the woolen mill, historic buildings, wood shop, cooper building, bakeries, and more.

Room Tip: We gave a 5 star rating to "restaurant" but it was only a gathering place for breakfast. O...

My wife and I have been staying at Zuber's now for many years. It's close to the area in Iowa where I grew up and we come down especially during Iowa Hawkeye football games in the fall. In addition, we love to visit in the Amanas. Zuber's has been very tastefully decorated with each room done up in a different theme. Over the years, we've stayed in most all of the rooms but are particularly fond of the Vintner (a less expensive cozier option) and the Clubhouse (a little roomier). The common area is a comfortable place to visit and talk with friends and the breakfasts seem to be larger than in the past with greater selection including plenty of fruit. I prefer to drink tea and their selection goes well beyond the usual norm. Staff are very friendly with new owners recently taking over the helm. It's very popular, so we sometimes find the hotel is booked well in advance. I highly recommend Zuber's.

Room Tip: If you have a larger party of several families, it's handy to reserve the second floor to the ea...

We enjoyed three nights at Zubers! Nice room. Very clean. Lukewarm shower but we got used to it. Location is great for the time spent in the colonies. Breakfast was good but perhaps a little meager. Service was excellent. Everyone happy and helpful. Would go back.
