Very nice with microwave and fridge. I wish I could take the mattress home with me! It was the best sleep in many weeks. Good work space and comfy chair. Breakfast was good with a nice eating area. It was quiet and great TV with a sleep timer.

This hotel has very comfortable beds and a really nice pool area. The hot tub us actually hot, not warm, which I loved.

The hotel is comfortable, clean and very close to Grinnell College. Staff is pleasant, easy to work with and the breakfast was decent with a variety of foods and varying items from day to day. I would definitely recommend this hotel, especially to Grinnell College family members.

Maggie, the hotel contact on duty, was very helpful and friendly when speaking to her on the phone prior to and at check in. The hotel is very nice, clean, and conveniently located off I-80. Breakfast was very good, and everyone...

Stayed here 2 years ago for knoxville nationals and again this year. Definitely aged in 2 years. Couple pieces of new furniture mixed with the old. Should have replaced all at once. Mattress pad so worn a whole corner was a hole. Water stains on ceiling above shower. Can tell they had a leak, fixed it but never fixed popcorn...

We enjoyed our one-night stay at the Country Inn and Suites in Grinnell. Our room was predictable, but nice. The bed was comfortable and the hotel was quiet. The desk staff were just ok and the breakfast was satisfactory.
