Located just off I-80 and across from Outlet Mall, this little gem has been our go to place for our last 5 annual trips to the Amana Colonies (just 9 miles away) and Kalona (25 miles). Don't let the convenience scare you, you don't hear the freeway noise (even after a Hawkeyes home game). The rooms are beautiful and reasonably priced and parking is right in front of your room. We have stayed in high-end "boutique" hotels that can't hold a candle to the Crest Country Inn's rooms.

Room Tip: West view is best, but easy is fine also!

Our stay at the Crest View Inn was exceptional. The rooms were as clean as any we’ve ever had during our travels. They appeared to be newly remodeled with brand new furniture and appliances. There was a huge area to store your suit cases. The “extras” supplied by Gary and Kandi were a pleasant surprise. These included special make-up remover wash cloths, plenty of new towels for all needs, and a supply of “previously used” towels to use to clean up spills, wash car windows, clean coolers, etc. There was even a storm shelter in the basement! The grounds were immaculate with a beautiful view of the rolling farm fields. The motel was conveniently located just off of the interstate with a nice restaurant that you could walk to. In addition, we were only about 20 minutes from the main village of Amana. The room rates were the best in the area. We would highly recommend the Crest View Inn to all travelers. You will not be disappointed!

Driving Chicago to Kansas, needed a place to stop, found Crest Country Inn. If you are looking for a fancy hotel with lots of amenities, this is not your place. If you want a clean room, comfy bed, hot shower, free Wi-Fi, free breakfast, all at a great price, this place is great. It is a motel, owners on site, close to I-80, Amana Colonies, and Tanger Outlet Mall. We will definitely make this our Iowa pit stop.
