Room was clean and seemed pretty quiet other than the noise from trucks on I-35 coming in and out of the truck stop next door. I don't think there were many people staying in the hotel that night, so hard to say how quiet it would be between rooms. Bed was comfortable. Staff member that checked us in was very pleasant. Breakfast was a typical continental breakfast, nothing to write home about but still adequate. Cost was a little pricey considering what you get for one night.

Good location

Pros: It was a good location considering that I was there to attend a School Reunion in Rake, Iowa.
Location: Our school consolidated with other county schools in 1978. The same as many small town schools are doing across the country.
Hotel was located close to the junction of highway 35 and 90 which was great to get around the city and North/South, East/West. Room was comfortable, hotel had a good breakfast that was always ready before the set time of 7 a.m. Staff provided good service.

Thank you for your review on our property. I am very sorry to hear that your stay was not at all the way it should be. Unfortunately our water does have a smell, but we do have a specific process we have to follow to add changes to our property, on the bright side we have been approved for a water softener and have chosen the company that will hopefully be installing it soon. Thank you again for your review, we hope you had safe travels.
