The outside of the building needs redone. The shower in the bathroom was dirty there were stains on the bottom. We accidentally forgot some items in the room we called to ask to retrieve them and mysteriously they were gone

I have stayed at this property on numerous occasions. And, I have stayed at other properties in Cherokee, Iowa. This one is the best place to stay. Other places are cheaper by a couple bucks but they cannot compete with the quietness, friendly staff, easy access or the breakfast . . . which is one of the best. Will I...

Have stayed here many time over the years. The bathroom of our room has been updated, as has the breakfast area. Our room was clean and nicely decorated. However, the windows on the north side need to be seriously cleaned or replaced! There is green, thick mold growing at the bottom from high moisture. Worried about mold spores being spread....

I like the fact that they're remodeling all the bathrooms. a nice touch. Jamison is always very friendly, always starting a conversation with me as I check out. He is always attempting to get me to extend my stay, at least until breakfast because I end up leaving before then.

Staff was friendly. Room was very spacious and nicely decorated. Walls were thin, though... I could hear the person in the next room coughing and talking. The bathroom fan was noisy and came on automatically when the light was turned on. The bed was comfy and breakfast was great... waffles, sausage, scrambled eggs, biscuits & gravy. I went to work...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I apologize for any areas in our hotel that seem "less clean". We have been running full occupancy, due to "construction" in our area. Our hallways, if not cleaned constantly, will see above average "tracked in dirt." Carpets, comforters, and even pillows will go through a normal cleaning cycle monthly....
