Okay this might be a petty issue but my wife left a pillow that she uses for her neck at this motel. I have tried and tried to get them to mail it to me. I'll pay for everything but I still cannot get them to help me. I've called 4 times. Tonight I called again and was told they...

I wish we would have been able to catch your family when you originally called. Sadly, they left without the pillow. I do have great news. The pillow you requested shipped back should be delivered today according to the shipping information that I last recieved. I apologize for the delay. This time of year it's hard for me to make...

We found the room to be very clean and comfortable! The staff was matter of fact but friendly. The room key is a real key, unlike the plastic security cards used by chain hotels. The TV was an old tube TV, but worked fine. The room had a small microwave and frig which was nice! We didn't try the breakfast....

The whole experience staying at Hometown Guesthouse was excellent. The staff were very efficient and courtesy. The facilities were very clean and welcoming. The breakfast was very simple. It was a nice surprise to find a nice facility near a very small town. I would definitely stay again.

Hometown Guesthouse was perfect for our needs. We were in the area visiting family in Cherokee and Remsen so the location was spot on between both towns. It is conveniently located right off the highway and was very clean and quiet. The room also had a refrigerator which was nice to have available. The breakfast was simple which included fruit,...

I am happy to hear you had such a pleasant stay. I do remember your group. In fact, I had several staff members comment on what a nice, fun group you were to have with us. I know they will be delighted to hear that they made you feel at home and you will be returning. See you next time!

This was a wonderful experience. We needed a place to stay near Marcus and you don't get any closer that here. Very clean, nice people, confortable rooms, and Price was great, too. A hidden gem in rural Iowa. We would definately stay there again.

We were treated very well at the Hometown Guesthouse. It's a nice, new motel kept immaculately clean, with free wifi. Comfortable beds and plenty of nice soft towels. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and went above and beyond what was required to help us out. There's a simple continental breakfast included. For those wanting a bit more, a...

This motel offers a clean, comfortable stay at an affordable price. You feel right at home with their friendly service. This lodging facility offers the same ammenities as most metro areas, but with small-town courtesy and price. Worth going out-of-your-way for!
