The hotel is undergoing renovations, so even though there are a few hiccups, I can still say that our stay has been good. The front desk staff on check-in was amazingly friendly (Jackie). Our room was in the back side, so it was very quiet. We had two small bugs in the room, but that happens in the country. The... More

You know the old saying "You get what you pay for?" That's exactly true in this case. The Comfort Inn has basic, if somewhat minimalist rooms in a decent location (still three miles from the center of Grinnell, although you thankfully don't hear highway noise). The beds are good enough, the TV is fine (although the channel guide is more... More

This easy on and easy off location makes for a excellent place to lay your head. The staff are friendly and professional, the breakfast area is very large and inviting and the rooms are quiet with a very comfortable bed. All in all, a well worth it stop on the way across the state

What a great hotel! Staff were amazing to work with and quickly resolved a room issue. The issue was minor, yet they swapped my room right away and gave me an upgrade. This was a large training class and it was great to have space that they were allowing us to use to network. We were loud and partied late... More

For the second consecutive year, we spent a night at the Comfort Inn in Grinnell while attending the Indy Car race at Iowa Speedway in Newton. The hotel is ideally situated for a quick exit from the race as most race traffic is headed west to Des Moines. We were told the hotel has a new manager since last year... More

Comfort Inn & Suites was a comfortable stay on our cross country excursion. The beds were comfortable. They had good parking(which is a must with our extended cab truck). The staff was friendly, and there was a hair dryer, frig., & microwave in the room. They served a good breakfast with diabetic friendly options(yogurt, eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal, juice, etc.)...

Stayed here to visit Grinnell College with my son. The lobby is pleasant, and the room is very good, well provisioned and a good bathroom. The breakfast is quite good, for a free breakfast, with hot food and a range of other cereals and breads. The exercise room is a very nice bonus, with lots of recent vintage machines to... More

We recently stayed here on our recent cross country trip for one night. I have stayed at this hotel in the past without problem, but wow what a different experience this time.

We stayed only one night at the Comfort Inn in Grinnell. It is on the outskirts of town (abt 5 miles from the center). Desk staff were friendly and helpful. We had a nice room that was very clean, quiet and comfortable.The shower was excellent. The public areas of the hotel are not as nice as the rooms themselves so... More
