Comfort Inn used to be the Settle Inn, which had really deteriorated over the years. They renovated the rooms and lobby, which are much improved. The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed the DirecTV. That was the good. On the downside, the wi-fi never worked during our stay. The front desk explained it was because "there were a lot of...

We stayed one night while visiting Adventureland. This hotel has all new furnishings. Beds were comfortable. We stayed on the third floor and it was very quiet. The pool was fun. The only con I have would be the breakfast area being too small. We ended up taking our breakfast back up to our room to eat due to no...

When we got to our room the door appeared to be closed but it pushed open when we attempted to use the keycard. We then flicked up the light switch just inside the door and nothing happened. We then noticed the very musty smell. There was no exhaust fan so we had to live with it. The wifi wasn't working...

Went to Prairie Meadow race track/casino and found this motel right across from track. It was the most reasonable in the immediate area. It has just been updated and although basic it was very clean and beds comfy. Included free wi-fi, refrigerator, coffee maker, plus a breakfast which included scrambled eggs and sausage one day and biscuits and gravy plus...

Such great service, had no trouble whatsoever. It was in a great location. My friends and I had an incredible time. Everything was clean, comfortable, and enjoyable. Whenever I am back in this area I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

I had stayed at this property in its former life - as The Settle Inn - and vowed I would NEVER RETURN. When I discovered the property had been taken over by another chain, I decided to try it. I first noted the steep increase in the room rates - at least DOUBLE - thinking it better be better. Well,...

The property was recently converted to a Comfort Inn and has been remodeled. The finishes are relatively new (as of June 2015), but a bit of the "old" peeks through if you look closely at the finishing details. However, the room was clean and comfortable, though the air-conditioning unit struggled to remove the humidity from the room so it felt...

My husband and I were on vacation--had driven all day and wanted to find a place to relax and stay the night. We had made a reservation ahead of time; when checking in the staff put us in one room but gave us keycards for another room. She had remembered that she had written the incorrect number on the keycard...

We traveled from Kentucky for the horse races in Altoona IA 6/12-6/13 The Casino and horse track is directly across the street so for us the location was ideal. The hotel has been renovated in the past 60 days so new beds, pillows, carpet, paint...the rate was $100 less than the Casino and $40 cheaper than most others in area....

I recently stayed at this hotel for three nights for the State Track and Field meet. When we first arrived, everything seemed fine. The rooms have been updated and are now much more modern than in the old photos posted here. The room was clean, other than a large wad of hair found in the bathroom. The wifi was super...

“Our Tip for you is to stay across the Street at Adventureland Inn.”
  • Toilet build-up where water enters the toilet bowl at top of bowl. This is long-term buildup
  • Our Room Shower Shelf area. Distressed and in need of better investment and maintenance upkeep.
