The out-of-town guest for my daughter's April 16 wedding stayed at the AmericInn in Grimes (8 rooms in all). It was great to have a place to all sit together in the evening in the bar area and not feel that we were disturbing anyone. One of the guest mentioned to me how nice she thought the hotel was. It...

This is a very nice hotel. We have stayed there many times. For the most part staff is very friendly. It has a warm inviting lobby. The rooms look like they have been remodeled in the last few years. They will try to accommodate most needs. Just let them know. The only thing is, in the past several times and...

Hotel was a great place to stay, very accessible off highway. Room was great. The morning desk staff/breakfast crew was nonexistent . At 6:30 am, no regular coffee, last of the creamer, knives, and plates. Floor was very sticky. No one at the desk, had to ring for assistance.

The manager was nonexistent. Staff was not trained properly on how to charge credit cards. Was charged incorrectly multiple times. Then three months after my stay they charged my card again. What a nightmare!!! Would never recommend staying at this hotel or trusting them with your credit card information

Stayed here after being away for many years due to job relocation. Booked a room with my wife as we were meeting family members here for Iowa State wrestling tournament. We use to stay here with our team several years ago, and was still very impressed with the staff, amenities and the continental breakfast! Will certainly book here again in...

Hotel was very clean and gives you a warm feeling on arrival. Staff was very friendly. Stayed in the hot tub suite and everything was great except for the handles for hot and cold were switched but that is very minor compared to the experience I had. Well worth the money and would recommend anyone here.

I would highly recommend this hotel. Unfortunately the pool was OUT OF ORDER!! the second day. Everything else was great. Comfort wise and cleanliness. The first day we did swim but the pool area was rented out for swim lessons the way it appeared to me. Oh and the TV remotes did not work with the TV we had in...

Staff is great. Brandon always goes out of his way to help out above and beyond. Breakfast always has a "homely" touch to it. Swimming pool is a great excitement for my daughter. I always and will always go to this particular hotel.
