Clean and comfortable. All staff members were very responsive to requests. I would definitely stay there if I return to the area. The breakfast was delicious and a great variety. It was a very pleasant experience!

If you want a good, clean, quiet place to stay when you are in the Grimes area, this is the place. The room was neat and clean, the staff were especially friendly and helpful, and the rate was more than reasonable. We used the pool area a couple of times with our grandchildren, and they had an excellent time. I...

The out-of-town guest for my daughter's April 16 wedding stayed at the AmericInn in Grimes (8 rooms in all). It was great to have a place to all sit together in the evening in the bar area and not feel that we were disturbing anyone. One of the guest mentioned to me how nice she thought the hotel was. It...

This is a very nice hotel. We have stayed there many times. For the most part staff is very friendly. It has a warm inviting lobby. The rooms look like they have been remodeled in the last few years. They will try to accommodate most needs. Just let them know. The only thing is, in the past several times and...

Hotel was a great place to stay, very accessible off highway. Room was great. The morning desk staff/breakfast crew was nonexistent . At 6:30 am, no regular coffee, last of the creamer, knives, and plates. Floor was very sticky. No one at the desk, had to ring for assistance.

The manager was nonexistent. Staff was not trained properly on how to charge credit cards. Was charged incorrectly multiple times. Then three months after my stay they charged my card again. What a nightmare!!! Would never recommend staying at this hotel or trusting them with your credit card information

Hotel was very clean and gives you a warm feeling on arrival. Staff was very friendly. Stayed in the hot tub suite and everything was great except for the handles for hot and cold were switched but that is very minor compared to the experience I had. Well worth the money and would recommend anyone here.
