We needed just a place to crash for one night when driving from our home in northern Iowa to Kansas City. We've had good luck with other AmeriInns in the past, so decided to give this particular location a try. It's nothing fancy, but the room was very clean and comfortable. The room was probably one of the smallest rooms...

My sister was staying at this hotel while we were in town for our grandfather's funeral. We came to the hotel to hang out and eat some pizza. The front desk staff so terribly rude to our family we would never consider using this hotel again. They charged $5.00 per kid to swim in the pool, they would not allow...

Dear Guest, I am sorry for your loss, we understand families want to spend time together during this time but we have to take into consideration all of our guests. When our facility is full we have to be stricter on our hotel policies, this includes use of the public areas and the pool area. I apologize you felt we...

Very friendly and accommodating staff. Met all of our needs. The only problem I encountered was there was no hot water on Saturday morning. Was a little frustrating. But no problems on Sunday morning having hot water.

If you are coming to visit family, and would like your family to enjoy the pool with you, forget it. They charge $5 per person to use the pool for any unregistered guest. Also, forget about using the eating area to actually eat. Apparently it is there just for looks.

Dear Guest, I am very sorry that you are unhappy with your visit. Due to our insurance we do not allow people who are unregistered guests to swim unless they pay our open swim fee and sign our liability release form. That is something we do offer that many hotels do not. We do not mind people coming to visit...

Good hotel we stay here every Christmas bringing in family from Missouri, Minnesota and Texas. This was probably the 10th year. Only suggestion would be to order sunny weather and 80 degrees, but that would be June. Maybe we should reschedule.
