Our first impression was of a family inviting you to stay for the night in one of their bedrooms. Very clean, with a cheerful white painted look, the whole building sits atop of a hill with panoramic views all around of the Iowa farm country, a couple of blocks right across a huge outlets Mall that doesn't affect the pretty...

We drove into town not knowing where to stay. This place is up on the hill and just across the road from the Outlet Mall. We were given a room out the back with a gorgeous view of farmland and a lovely sunset and it was quite. We found our room to be quite spacious with two rocking sofa chairs....

We stayed here upon the recommendation of a local business we were going to tour as being the closest motel. The location was within a couple miles so that was great - easy on and off the interstate. The hotel sits up on a hill so an interesting view. Across from the Tanger Mall so was easy to spot. The...

Our room was very comfortable and clean. It was a cold snowy night when we checked in and we were greeted by the owners who introduced themselves and immediately made us feel welcome. The heater in the bathroom was very appreciated. Room was small but had everything that was needed. I really appreciated the built in bench in the bathroom...

Thank you so much for you thorough and kind review! We have geared up for our complete continental breakfast at this point which is in the north hallway with sit down tables.

So happy to report that the majority of reviews for this property were spot on!! Clean, quiet and comfortable room. Kandi went out of her way to suggest information to us on attractions and restaurants. Felt safe and secure yet enjoyed the close proximity to the outlet mall. Will definitely make this our go to spot when visiting the Amanas!!

Very nice rooms that were very clean, and the staff were super accommodating, welcoming and helpful! Will definitely stay here again when we are in the area. The views here are wonderful, almost like a retreat spot, and they also have a little gazebo to use to take in the views! Would highly recommend to everyone! Wonderful stay! I'd rate...

The room is bright and clean and small, made a bit smaller by the large size of the TV stand/drawers. But you cannot argue with the quiet or the welcoming attitude of the hosts. The continental breakfast is something to skip-- bagels and muffins, oh my-- but there's a McDonald's down the hill as well as the Landmark restaurant. The...

We stayed at Crest Motel on a HawkEye football weekend because there were no rooms in Iowa City. We are glad we stayed. The commute was about 25 minutes West on I-80. The Crest is aptly named - high on a ridge just off the Interstate. Close to an outlet mall, and a truck stop diner with decent breakfast. The...

Nice and quaint motel off the interstate. Very comfortable and quiet. This is our second stay, and will stay again. Minutes from the Amana Colonies, Tanger Outlets across the road, good choices for places to eat, easy access to I-80.
