Beautiful house. Good breakfast. Wish I would have known my room was in the basement. I would have picked one on the upper floors but it worked out fine.

Perfect Stay
We had a perfect stay at the Iowa House. Check-in was streamlined with text information. We had a loft suite which gave us each space and privacy. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable with homey amenities, simple but everything we needed for our stay. Finished with a delicious breakfast and friendly staff. We will absolutely be back and highly recommend to others.

2/10 Poor

Worst experience, to date,
We ended up leaving and getting a different room at a hotel. The room stunk and was very dirty long black hairs all over the place even in the bathtub. Yellow paint was peeling off the walls. The bed was very clumpy and would’ve been terrible to sleep on. We left because we feared we get sick from the awful musky smell. This by far was one of the worst experiences me and my husband have had with any hotel or bed-and-breakfast it was completely awful.
