Very disappointed...was to be "newly refurbished" and from observations had hardly started. Shower did not work, no stopper in sink, toilet unsafe to sit on. One party in our group requested their toilet be fixed because it was broken, only to be told there was no one available to fix it.
We arrived at 3:30ish and they were aware our group was coming. They were not ready stating "they had a full house the night before and weren't ready yet."...it would be another half hour. We were on a tight schedule, but our bus took a half-hour drive through town.
Breakfasts were a joke. "Columbian" coffee which is usually very strong was like brown water -- BOTH MORNINGS. I couldn't even drink it. The "orange juice" was either orange kool aid, or maybe Crystal Lite...definitely NOT orange juice.
No one assisted with luggage and since there were necessary steps to either floor, and we had some handicapped individuals, it was quite a handicap.
We would never stay there again, and in fact, if it were a hotel used on a future bus trip, we would not go on the trip,.
The 2 stars is because it was very clean...although was very old and run down so was difficult to get that fresh, clean smell. Sheets were very clean and in spite of condition of bathroom it was very clean.
Oh...also train several times, but we love the train so wasn't a problem for us. Air conditioner was a bit noisy, but kept room adequately cool.

Room Tip: No clue...someone said their room smelled smoke, but ours did not. Again, we would NOT stay there ag...

Way off the beaten path. Good for an overnight cheap hotel. Staff was nice but very confused at check in. Put us in a room then had to switch us because he thought the room may have been checked out to someone else. Says it was just remodeled. Not very well!

The receptionist tried to take a photo copy of my credit card and drivers lic. in case we trashed the room. Had to call the owner after much discussion how she wasn't. Was going to put us in a room on second or third "smoking floor". Magically had a room on the first floor after saying they were just down with those in renovations. The shower curtains are too short for the bathtubs so beware if you get some water on the floor and that trashing charge. The breakfast was disappointing as well. Couldn't even get a tea bag for a some hot tea. The morning receptionist sure could have used a bath as well. But at least the room was clean.

Stayed here because Sioux City was full and expensive. Good rate ok room, Breakfast was below average, they have a nice area for breakfast but were running out of syrup and would be nice if they added some eggs and a meat. They do have biscuits and gravy though. Check in lady was courteous and friendly. For the price everything was fine, but if you are used to fancy this is not your place to stay. Our room was older style but clean and everything worked. I would stay again.

Motel is old and smells of smoke even though they have non-smoking rooms. Furniture was basic and the beds were hard as rock. However, everything worked and the price was OK for what you got.
Must say that the breakfast certainly left something to be desired. Only thing that was warm were the make your own waffles. Juice was like water, the selection of breads and cereal was very limited and the coffee was really bad.
