Covered Bridge Inn
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Winterset
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 August 2012

If you are planning on visiting the "Bridges of Madison County", Winterset is the obvious town to base yourself in. Unfortunately, there is little choice in accommodation and you'll probably end up in the Super 8. It's good enough and Bill is very friendly, but the town diserves better.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same - it's a Super 8!

Stayed one night - VERY WORN and in need of urgent updating. I could feel the coils in the mattress. The room appeared clean. The smoke alarm was hanging by it wires about 8 inches from the ceiling. Surroundings area is nice. We ate at the Mexican restaurant in town and then had an ice cream cone.

We made reservations here because of the great reviews we read on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed!! Everything was clean and accomodations were as they were advertised to be. I felt this an exceptional place to stay as Bill gave us great reviews on places to eat and things to see. But for us, he went the extra mile when it was pouring rain one day and we couldn't leave as we were on our motorcycle. Bill offered to take us whereever we wanted to go in the town and gave us his cell phone number to call when we needed him to pick us up. And that is going the extra mile!!

May, 2012: our party of 6 stayed at the Super 8 motel in Winterset, IA for 2 nights. Bill and his employees were exceptional! They took care of our every need and were extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean, everything was in working order. Bill's suggestions for sightseeing/restaurants were very helpful. Bill was extremely friendly and seemed genuinely interested in making our stay in the area a memorable experience.

We checked out TripAdvisor's reviews on this place before staying. Very glad we did. We found the positive reviews to be accurate. I tried to make my reservation online but had a a glitch so called Bill directly. He was able to give me a better rate and he was very pleasant. We noticed he had won several customer service awards which Super 8 corporate no longer offers. He is one of their best assets to the chain and any hotel chain would be well served by hiring him. Winterset is a charming place and we wish we had had more time. Hope to return someday.

Room Tip: The king suite we stayed in had a dvd player (first time we had seen that). Bring a copy of "Th...

My wife and I have been to this motel probably 4-6 times over the past 7 years when passing through Winterset. Bill who is the Manager remembers us every time. How he does this is amazing with all of the people who pass through this establishment. The rooms are always clean and the place is well taken care of. This Super 8 is probably 20+ years old, so people have to understand that it is not new. For what it is, this place is great and the staff is awesome. I am happy to say we have stayed here and will go back again. Bill is truly one of the nicest people I have ever met and he does care about the people who stay at his motel.
