Great service, Shawn at the front desk was very progressive. Make sure to not judge a book for its cover... The rooms are being renovated and the smoke free king rooms are in great condition for a older building! Great Daily and Weekly rates, worth the money!!! Located next to Applebee's, Perkins, and Gas station.

Check in was fast and friendly. The room was basic but ok. No tub stopper and the air conditioning was a little weak. The bed was decent but older. Easy to find. Cheap and basic. Parking was plentiful and the hotel was well located in Marshalltown.

Awful. The window would not shut. The lock was broke. Smelled like smoke plus cat pee. Did not live up to those Motel 6 radio commercials. Horrible. Hallway even smokier. Bathroom counter had stuff stuck to it. Pillow case had something on it.

As I sit in the room NOW, all I can say is old & outdated. The beds are soooo uncomfortable & old. To discover how old, the tag on the mattress (yes, it's still there) is from 1998. This morning, the wash cloth had a huge hole in it. All the towels are raggity. Two tiny bars of soap, no...

I made a reservation. For one. A friend was visiting during the day. When I went to check in...the manager charged more than what I booked online. He stated my friend could not go to the room with me without me paying for them as well, then wanted more money for early arrival ...and said we could not wait in...

I will be traveling to Marshalltown for overnights during the next two or three months. I will probably chose this same motel for all my stays because of value and convenience. The staff was helpful although my interaction with them was limited (at check in and check out).

The bedroom and bathroom were clean, although the room decor was very dated, with orange curtains, brown and orange bedding, and green carpet. The bed was quite hard, which I prefer. The room had wi-fi internet, which was acceptable for email and simple web-browsing, but it randomly disconnected several times in the few hours I used it. The room also...

Surprised at how spacious the room was for the price. Desk clerk was very friendly and willing to accommodate our needs. Don't expect some of the perks of a more expensive motel such as continental breakfast, however, with the difference in rates one can afford to go to one of the nearby restaurants for breakfast.

“Windows you can open and get some fresh air.....love that. Cleaner than other higher priced hotels. Small town.Nice town.Went there for the BBQ contest Pork in the Park 10/18/2014-10/18/2014. I love the fact they have a large Mexican population and there were many Mexican restaurants and cool side of the road vendors with awesome Mexican food on the cheap...divy joints..great food. Nice town!”

“The phone in room 127 did not work for me. Based on their eagerness to get it fixed, it might not for you, either. If you need the phone, check it as soon as you get in the room. Good luck!”
