This motel is easy to find as it was just off the highway. They had a nice firm bed and plenty of parking close to the building. The room was very quiet. The wifi was strong and stable, which was very nice and somewhat rare! I made my reservation through Trip Advisor and had no problems at check-in.

Pulled in late and exhausted. Greeted by a friendly, smiling desk clerk, warm cookies, and a cup of tea. Room was immaculate and inviting. After a good night's sleep and a hot shower, we had a decent breakfast. A final "have a nice day" from the smiling morning desk clerk, and we were off. Would definitely stay there again.

Was in town for Grinnell College's commencement ceremony. Although the school has been there since the late 1800's the town and this hotel were overwhelmed with the influx of people. Like other college towns with events like this, choices were limited although reservations were made 10 months in advance. When we went to our room, the beds were made. Yet,...

I was passing through the area and decided to stay the night here. They accept animals and I had my dog with me. It is a Best Western, so I was not expecting a lot. I was pleasantly surprised by how nice the staff was and how they seemed to actually want my business. They were polite, joked around and...

Housekeeping skipped my room the first day. Chalked it up to a mistake. Then housekeeping failed to clean my room the second day, but they changed my towels, which means they entered my room and consciously decided to not actually clean the room. I travel for work and stay in hotels almost half of my nights in a year, and...

Clean room--we did have a pet so paid extra, but service was good and it looked like they had updated with new carpet. I would recommend this hotel. Easy off interstate and easy back on. Close to restaurants; we really didn't have a chance to take advantage of pool and hot tub.

Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful and friendly, peaceful and quiet. Did not use the pool but it appeared clean and taken care of. Will stay there again. The only problem we encountered was parking.

Hotel had updated decor, clean everywhere, even public areas. One employee makes homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast! Plenty of high protein choices too. Our granddaughter is a Grinnell student, we look forward to visiting Pioneer Inn and Suites often.

I've used this hotel for my work trips to Grinnell which occur a couple times a year. I've stayed here for 5 straight years. It was a bargain compared to the other hotel I used - nicer staff, the hotel was in good shape, clean, good parking and closer to food and services. Good access. I could stay for under...

Hotel personnel were helpful and welcoming. The room itself was clean, well-appointed and very orange (took a little getting used to). Pool and fitness center looked very nice although we did not use. Hotel is situated right off the interstate but very quiet - two or three miles into town.
