HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

Every staff member I came into contact went above and beyond to make sure my guests and I were comfortable and well taken care of. They would react before we even made any requests. I travel often and have never ran across a more caring staff. Room was large, clean, and comfortable as well. I used the gym twice and...

When we checked in, it took a half hour for them to find our key, and there was a very shrill noise. None of them seemed to know it origin, much less how to fix it. We stayed there for two nights, but the maids never came through - or if they did, they left no mark. Hairdryer was broken;...

My husband and I have no complaints about the actual facility itself, or the staff. What irritated us the most was the amount of ridiculous taxes we were hit with. Over $40 worth of taxes that we never would have anticipated really made our trip back home difficult. One of the taxes we were hit with was an occupancy tax,...

We stayed here one night prior to a tour and visit at Grinnell College. With three teens and two adults, we reserved a two queen suite with sofa bed. The suite was huge; one room had a sleeper sofa, two easy chairs, ottoman, fridge, microwave, and television. The other room had two beds, easy chair, ottoman, and television. A heavy...

Located about a mile off highway so you don't hear highway noise. Rooms were clean but the water pressure was not so great but staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast was not that great with the eggs being dried out every morning. Pool and hot tub were clean and very nice.

The hotel is undergoing renovations, so even though there are a few hiccups, I can still say that our stay has been good. The front desk staff on check-in was amazingly friendly (Jackie). Our room was in the back side, so it was very quiet. We had two small bugs in the room, but that happens in the country. The...

You know the old saying "You get what you pay for?" That's exactly true in this case. The Comfort Inn has basic, if somewhat minimalist rooms in a decent location (still three miles from the center of Grinnell, although you thankfully don't hear highway noise). The beds are good enough, the TV is fine (although the channel guide is more...

This easy on and easy off location makes for a excellent place to lay your head. The staff are friendly and professional, the breakfast area is very large and inviting and the rooms are quiet with a very comfortable bed. All in all, a well worth it stop on the way across the state

What a great hotel! Staff were amazing to work with and quickly resolved a room issue. The issue was minor, yet they swapped my room right away and gave me an upgrade. This was a large training class and it was great to have space that they were allowing us to use to network. We were loud and partied late...

For the second consecutive year, we spent a night at the Comfort Inn in Grinnell while attending the Indy Car race at Iowa Speedway in Newton. The hotel is ideally situated for a quick exit from the race as most race traffic is headed west to Des Moines. We were told the hotel has a new manager since last year...
