Overall this is a beautiful accomadations. We originally booked Suite #2 but our cable wasn't working so they moved us to Suite #1. Pros: Beautifully decorated, nice kitchenette so you don't have to eat out every meal. Cons: Not all things working ie ceiling fan light, very noisy with dump trucks and being at main intersection of Main Street. No...

Stayed here for one night while visiting Lansing. It is a decent place but with some down sides. We were in room 2 which has a balcony right outside the windows. Men who smoked were staying in other rooms so when they were out on the balcony we could hear conversations and smell all the cigarette smoke. The stairs on...

I want to start this review by saying that if I were to find myself back in the Lansing area, I would probably stay here again. It is a very charming building, and the rooms are very nice. There are only 4 suites in the entire Inn, and because I knew multiple people staying there, I was able to see...

The room was very comfortable and felt inviting. We arrived late so we never did meet any of the employees. We had arranged to pick-up the key at the door, so we let ourselves in and enjoyed a nice night. Thanks for the memorable night!!!

We stayed at this inn on a bicycle trip through the area. It was fantastic. It is located on the second floor of a completely restored building on Main Street. The room was spacious and well decorated. You could easily eat here as there was a table and microwave, etc. We were the only people staying during that night so...

The Inn was a very nice surprise. Before booking we looked at the website pictures and read the reviews but when we opened the door to room 4, we were still very happily surprised. The website pictures certainly don’t do it justice. Room 4 is really a large studio apartment, about 25’ long, 12’ wide and with 12’ ceilings. The...

Stayed here during my first ever visit to Lansing, IA. I loved the little town, and having your hotel right on Main Street is super-convenient. It is obvious McGarrity's went through a significant restoration. The rooms are fresh, clean and beautifully done. My only complaint is the ventilation system. Near the ceiling of the room was large diameter steel ductwork....

My work takes me to that part of Iowa sometimes, and I wanted to spend more time there. We stayed for the weekend in Lansing at McGarrity's Inn on Main. Note: This is an inn or hotel, not a B&B. We stayed in the smaller suite in the back, which gives a partial view of the Mississippi, with a better...

When we drove into Lansing we thought 'Oh-oh, this could be a problem." The town is obviously struggling through the economic downturn with closed shops and a worn look. However, McGarity's Inn has been remodeled and unless you like to stay at the Hilton, a great find. Yes, you do climb very steep stairs, but the room is worth it....

I loved the location. I loved the room - it was so cute! The brick wall added character and I loved the tile turtle in the bathroom. The shower was very modern and very clean. The bed was unbelievably comfortable! I also liked the private entrance. I missed the fact there was no breakfast, but we have friends in Lansing...
