Sorry, there's just no other way to describe this hotel except "dumpy". My "non-smoking" room reeked of old cigarette smoke, so much so that everything in my suitcase had to be washed when I got home. The AC/heater/fan was no help, as it was very loud and delivered only stale musty air at any temperature. The bathroom was grotty, the linens were threadbare and dingy, the mattress was shot, the pillows lumpy and the tiny 6-channel TV was a joke. The only thing that saved my rating from being "terrible" was the handy fridge/microwave in the room and free wireless internet. Unfortunately, it is the only motel in West Branch, but next time I will drive the extra 10 miles to stay in a real hotel in Iowa City.
