Back again to the Amber Inn. Quite adequate facility. In an earlier review, I commented on the "Thou Shall Not" posters up all over the property...well, they must have softened a bit as we didn't see them on this trip. We did stay in the 'big' room with three beds (and with Iowa being thoroughly covered by politicians every four... More

With an unexpected death in my family we had to travel to Le Mars to attend the funeral. The regular rate was $65 and they only gave us $5 off per night as the "bereavement rate". Most hotels offer more than that. Also the lady at the front desk was, at best, cordial. She didn't have any sympathy for us... More

This hotel is much nicer than it appears on the outside. Very cheap rates with breakfast included. Our room was nicely redone despite it being an older motel. The only complaint was a urine odor in our room indicating the carpet needed shampooed. Great beds, tv, and shower.

We stayed at the Amber Inn on Thursday, June 16, 2016 and found all the positive reviews to be right on the money. A great place even though it looks rather unappealing. Don't let looks guide you. This was clean and tidy, well maintained, the desk clerk was pleasant and the price was so inviting. I'd stay there again. The... More

Management is pleasant, room was clean and comfortable. It was very hot that weekend and the ac worked very well. Room was quiet. They have a fitness room and laundry, but did not use either. They have a typical, small breakfast. We opted to eat out. Microwave and refrig in room.

The motel was just what we needed for a one night stay though people do stay for much longer. Clean, pleasant, good value, comfortable beds, breakfast was good except jelly packets were too old. The basics are all there without the flair of higher priced places.

If traveling in the center of the country check the travel buddy flyers in the rest stop. This motel was good value. Refurbished, clean firm mattress. Off Highway 75 across from rail and industrial site, but not that noisy. Gym is small only three different exercise machines, but the latest can run Cape in South Africa, Monterey in California and... More

We rented two rooms here for the majority of the summer. The hosts were pretty good. They treated us really good in the beginning when their occupancy rates were lower. Once the bird flu hit the area, we weren't given the same level of attention because they were chasing the business.

This was part of the "cheap" travel we did to get across the nation and Canada. Amber Inn was a bit off of the path, but it was inexpensive. We were apprehensive when we approached because it was not attractive. The front of the building had chairs where trade workers sat to work their smart phones and smoke. The hotel... More
