This place is clean and comfortable. The owners, Gary and Kandi, are so welcoming and kind. We were stuck in a torrential downpour through Iowa. Our luggage (tarped in the back of a truck)was soaked and they kindly threw some of our clothes in the dryer. Their hospitality went above and beyond! This was exactly what we needed to wind down! I highly recommend this great Motel!

Our room was spotless, very comfortable and the most quiet hotel we have stayed in. Spoke with other guests as we ate breakfast and learned from to separate families they have stayed there over 20 years as they traveled. We will stay there again in the future and recommend our family and friends do also. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

The owners of this hotel are some of the most amazing people I will ever meet. They could tell I was in shock and terrified after the accident and made me feel at ease with their kindness. They are extremely accommodating especially when they know bad weather is coming. When I crashed into a ditch around midnight a state patrol trooper took me to this hotel and I am beyond blessed that I landed a stay here. They accommodated me for two nights and made sure I was fed, warm, and safe. They truly care about their guests and that was very evident. If you ever need a place to stay in the area I highly recommend this place. I never write reviews (I know, I should) but this couple made me want to let everyone know this is the best place to stay around here.

Very pleased to find a privately-owned hotel just off the highway. The breakfast leaves a lot to be desired, but if you can take a few evangelizing items around the room, a very solid stay on a road trip. Rooms were clean, owners friendly, the place was quiet and the USB chargers in the room surprisingly up-to-date. Would definitely stay again.

Beautifully appointed room. Felt like. Home away from home. Comfortable beds. The front desk closes at 10pm. We called in advance and paid over the phone and they left a key for us with a personal note. It was close to the highway, but very quiet. We parked right outside our room, which was very convenient. Breakfast consisted of a variety of frozen egg/sausage sandwiches & burritos as well as a variety of breads and bagels and jelly, cream cheese and fruit. It was more than adequate for a small hotel. We would definitely stay there again.

Frozen sandwiches, bagels, yogurt, etc. I highly recommend this motel and can not thank them enough for the hospitality.

When I had to stop in the middle of the night with a snow storm approaching, they were very polite and understanding, never making me feel bad for clearly waking them at 3am. They said they normally don't take check-ins after a certain hour, but left their sign up due to the predicted snow and upcoming holiday. They wanted travelers to have a safe place to rest, and I am so glad they did. Very simple, very clean, amazing hospitality. The furniture and decorations may appear plain and well worn, but it is very clean and well cared after. There is a sense of true hospitality here. It is comfortable, clean, and safe. Not fancy or luxurious, but certainly not trashy or sketchy. Nothing that gave me pause or made me want to sleep with an eye open. It will more than meet your needs to get rested and refreshed, without worrying about either safety or cleanliness. I slept like a rock. Comfortable beds. Wifi. Simple continental breakfast. And they have pet-friendly rooms available, which I used. When they were shoveling the sidewalks the next morning, they even cleared around my van for me! They consistently went the extra mile without complaint, and with a true and natural gift for hospitality. They said it is a family started and passed down business. I would say this family definitely went into the right business. This weary traveler is very grateful she stumbled upon them. If I'm traveling through Iowa again and need a room, Crest Country Inn will be at the top of my list.

I had stayed at this motel ten years ago or so and knowing I was going to need to stop on this trip, I remembered it and decided to try again. I was not disappointed. If anything, it's improved. Rooms are super-clean and comfortable. It's old, but well-maintained and seems to be a real 'mom-n-pop' family business with very friendly owners who seem to think of everything. These kind of places usually don't do breakfast or at most some bad muffins and coffee, but they have managed to set up a dining area in a hall that has good coffee and juice, breads and a selection of frozen breakfast sandwiches and burritos that can be microwaved. The price was very reasonable and the location- just across from Tanger Outlets and near fast food and convenience stores, and just off I-80- is great.

A stroke of luck landed us here several years ago on our annual cross country trek to visit family in New England. The trip is more arduous each year, but the Crest Country Inn is our anticipated sanctuary, and this year provided some angelic intervention as well! More about that in a moment... In general, Crest provides sublime comfort, the best sleep of our entire trip, warm congeniality and flexibility from the family hoteliers, Kandi and Gary, CONVENIENT access from the highway with individual doors and parking in front of your room, lovely lush surrounding lawns and Iowa rural vistas, cozy and attractive furnishings worthy of the country inn name, and close proximity to good food and provisions. All of this is graced with an indescribable beneficence reflective of the owners' spirits, which is shared with the folks who visit as well as our dogs! There is no better place between Colorado and Massachusetts for weary travelers with beloved pooches!! This year on egress, when leaving the inn, we stupidly overlooked a small bag stuffed with last minute items including an irreplaceable sentimental trinket, hubby's precious hand-tied fly fishing assortment, and some meds. It was one of those things we take into the room for safe-keeping since our 1995 van lacks an alarm. Crest's staff found the bag, and Kandi went far beyond the call of duty to rush it to the Post Office on a Saturday morning and send it to us via priority mail. It arrived at our destination just twelve hours after we rolled in... That's service!!! These folks WALK THEIR TALK and set a wonderful example for all of us. On the way home, we arrived at the inn a bit late and woefully exhausted. It was so comforting and comfortable, we wanted to stay for days and just opt out of all the tasks and chores ahead. But we awoke refreshed and revived, ready to set out for home. THANK YOU, KANDI, GARY & STAFF!!! See you on the next trek :-)

I stayed at this charming, friendly, comfortable little motel for one night in 1989! - and to date it is one of the nicest, if not the nicest places I have ever stayed. It felt like being in someone's home. We were en route from NM to PA on a leisurely trip. We stopped here without a prior reservation and were warmly greeted & provided for. It made such a lasting impression that I remember all these years later. I don't have any reason to visit Iowa again in the foreseeable future but if I do I would love to return here. I'm so glad to see that it is still there and viewing all the photos - it is as lovely as I remember it. Thanks for a wonderful memory! Bless you.

Our first impression was of a family inviting you to stay for the night in one of their bedrooms. Very clean, with a cheerful white painted look, the whole building sits atop of a hill with panoramic views all around of the Iowa farm country, a couple of blocks right across a huge outlets Mall that doesn't affect the pretty landscape at all. The room was spotless, a bit on the small side maybe, but with a very comfy bed, super clean linens and pillows, as was the well supplied bathroom. The country furnishings are of high, solid quality. By the way, the morning coffee was very good! A pleasant stay, indeed.

We drove into town not knowing where to stay. This place is up on the hill and just across the road from the Outlet Mall. We were given a room out the back with a gorgeous view of farmland and a lovely sunset and it was quite. We found our room to be quite spacious with two rocking sofa chairs. It was nice to be able to sit and watch TV with a little table between us and not have to balance things while sitting on the bed! The room was clean, our welcome was great and all in all I can't fault this place. Maybe a coffee maker in the room or coffee available would be a nice extra.

Our room was very comfortable and clean. It was a cold snowy night when we checked in and we were greeted by the owners who introduced themselves and immediately made us feel welcome. The heater in the bathroom was very appreciated. Room was small but had everything that was needed. I really appreciated the built in bench in the bathroom to set our suitcase on - convenient, yet out of the way. If you are looking for a sit down breakfast you will be disappointed. There was a coffee pot and large slices of homemade banana bread (which was very delicious!). It was perfect for us as we just wanted to get on the road again, but someone else may be expecting more.

The room is bright and clean and small, made a bit smaller by the large size of the TV stand/drawers. But you cannot argue with the quiet or the welcoming attitude of the hosts. The continental breakfast is something to skip-- bagels and muffins, oh my-- but there's a McDonald's down the hill as well as the Landmark restaurant. The place feels secure and is very quiet save for the rowdy Iowa/ Wisconsin fans who answered an early call to the game. It's an easy commute to where we needed to be, and it was reasonably priced.

We stayed at Crest Motel on a HawkEye football weekend because there were no rooms in Iowa City. We are glad we stayed. The commute was about 25 minutes West on I-80. The Crest is aptly named - high on a ridge just off the Interstate. Close to an outlet mall, and a truck stop diner with decent breakfast. The internet was good, the windows opened, parking for one car directly in front of each room. The mattress on the king bed was a temprapedic. Our room, 126, faced N toward the interstate, but was surprisingly quiet. If I stayed again, I'd ask for a room on the south side, facing a beautiful Iowa field.

Traveling from Nebraska to Missouri we decided we needed to pull off for the night and rest. As we had no reservations, I selected Crest Country. Their prices were reasonable compared to others in the area. Even though this is not a newer facility, the rooms are super clean, smell great and they had the room amenities just like other establishments. The rooms are spacious and the most appreciated by us were the two comfortable, upholstered side chairs to sit and enjoy reading or the watching the television. Continental breakfast is certainly adequate to get the day started. We certainly would stay here again and would recommend this family-run Inn to all who want friendly, personable service and rooms that are super clean.

This motel is just off the main highway, across from the Tangier Outlet Mall, and about a 20 minute drive to Amana, using a scenic route through the Amana Colonies. The motel is clean and comfortable, with very friendly and helpful staff. There are few amenities, i.e. no pool, basic continental breakfast, no in-room coffee. However, it is an excellent value if one needs a clean, comfortable place to stay near the Amana Colonies. We were quite satisfied.

My friend and I spent a night here recently while visiting the Amana Colonies. We arrived MUCH earlier than check in time and they had no problem letting us check in early. My friend who had a recent "dirty motel incident" wanted to see the room and they happily obliged. The room was spotless. They were very accommodating to any needs we had. We also commented on the fact at how quiet it was! You're just off the interstate but it was one of the quietest motels we had each been in. The Casey's store in front of the motel is open 24-7 and sells beer and a limited wine selection. The restaurant next to Casey's serves a delicious breakfast! Would happily recommend this motel!

I lived in the Williamsburg area for many years, and know the owners of this hotel. They have a commitment to keeping their rooms clean, free from smoke and bugs, and the Crest has survived while neighboring Best Western, Radisson, and Super 8 franchises became run-down and filthy. The owners have solid integrity and live right there on site. They care for the rooms like it's their own home. If I didn't have family who lived next door already, I'd stay here any time I come to Williamsburg. Solid family, clean hotel, comfortable accommodations. Don't miss out!

I happened upon this motel, driving from Galena, IL to Des Moines, IA, after taking a couple of side trips thru some of the smaller towns. It is just off Hiway 80, so it's conveniently located. Looked it up on here, and saw that the ratings were very good, so I went ahead and got a room for the night. The room is clean and comfortable; and there is a mini fridge and microwave in the room also. The manager, Selena has a bubbly personality, and is very welcoming to all that come thru the door. Robert, the handyman is very friendly. I was walking around the property, and he saw me taking pictures of the grounds and the setting sun. He engaged me in a conversation, asking where I was from, and how I found their motel, and was telling me a little bit about the area, and the Amana Colonies. He suggested that I get up early to see and take pics of the sunrise as it comes up over the outlet mall that is just down the street from them. Should I ever be in this area of the country again, I would definitely stay here again!

This was the third time we have stayed at this motel. The people who own this motel are very friendly, helpful and kind. When we checked in, it was snowing and a gentleman was out cleaning off the sidewalks. Our room was one of their specialty rooms and was very clean and comfortable. Bed was very comfortable and provided us with a good nights sleep! The continental breakfast was donuts, bagels and breakfast sandwiches you put in the microwave. Actually, the sandwiches were very good. Hot coffee and orange juice. Next morning there were 3 people cleaning snow off the sidewalks and they even shoveled a path to the doors on our car. I would recommend this little motel to anyone traveling through the area on pleasure or business. We will stay here again.

After reading some of the reviews on here, we were skeptical about staying, but we drove by and it looked clean so we came and checked it out. We were, to say the least, pleasantly surprised. The room was clean and very nice in our opinion. The owner was extremely pleasant and friendly. The outside was well lit and clean. We will definitely stay here again next time we pass through. The only advice I have is if you are staying, you may want to bring your own pillows. I like a lot of pillows and the ones provided were thin. But that's just my preference.

The owners are very nice and you can tell they truly care about all their desks, especially compared to what you'll get from the "big box" type chains that start the rates at $100...which, when only staying for a quick sleep really doesn't make any sense. I arrived "after hours" but the owners live on site so that was no problem at all once I arrived. Room was very clean, bed was comfortable, tv worked good-and the the in room free wifi is very quick, much better than I am used to at hotels and I'd say is comparable to what you'd get from a cable internet at home. Highly recommended this place.

I arrived under rather catastrophic circumstances of having been mid journey in a solo road trip between northern Wisconsin and Colorado... car broke down about 2 miles from hotel. After a police officer kindly escorted me to this facility, I was welcomed with open arms by Rob, one half of the couple that runs the place. Rob quickly recognized the situation and offered me a room at the AAA rate. I accepted and slept hard, only to wake up to local mechanics who (as very kind as they were) were unable to find a part for my old car locally (it would be flown in the next day). I was pretty much a mess at that point and needed to get back to Colorado ASAP because I had to teach the next day. Rob and his wife Celina didn't think twice before offering to PERSONALLY drive me to the airport in Des Moines. Yep - it's true. I caught a ride from these amazingly humble, generous, and warm-hearted hotel managers. The room itself was wonderful. Very clean and recently remodeled. The small continental breakfast didn't have any fruit but Celina promptly gave me 2 bananas from their personal stash. All of this is to say that I doubt there exists a better management for any hotel anywhere in the country. THANK YOU, Celina and Rob, for being the best hosts EVER.

Tired from traveling we stopped in Williamsburg looking for a place to stop for the night. We usually tend to stick to the better known hotels, but the Crest Country Inn was close and easy to get to so decided to give it a try. Boy am I ever glad we did! Don't be fooled by the pictures on line- they are outdated! Our room was lovely! It was also huge! nice sitting area with two Queen Anne chairs and a table, Nice desk and chair and entertainment center with a flat screen TV. The room off the main room, held a space for suitcases, a sink, frig and microwave and then an inner door with the tub and toilet. Clean Clean Clean and very tastefully decorated! The mattress was comfy and must have been Memory foam? as it molded to your body and was comfortable. my husband has back issues and he was able to sleep well on this mattress! The pillows were plentiful but flat and that would be my only complaint. The ground were well kept. A breakfast area offered juice, coffee, English muffins, bagels to start your day. It is VERY obvious that the managers Robert and Celena care about their guests. They were friendly and more than accomodating! This motel is close to the outlets, gas station, convienent mart and restaurant. Also close to the interstate! We will definitely be back when we are in the area! This motel is being renovated but do not let it stop you from staying- you'll be sorry if you miss out on this gem!

We were traveling from Colorado to Michigan and decided to take a break in our 18+ hr drive. I looked for hours on TA to see where our best options would be for stopping and I came across the Crest Country Motel. I called and spoke with nice woman and made a reservation over the phone. It was $10.00 cheaper than booking online. I made her aware that we wouldn't be checking in until 1am and she made arrangements with me. We pulled into the carport area. They have a phone you pickup and it rings the front desk. A guy came out and welcomed us. Checking was quick, painless and easy. We stayed in room 142. 2 queen beds. Spacious. Comfortable bed and accommodations. We only slept for 5 hrs or so. Got up and ate their continental breakfast. Bagles, English muffins. Breakfast sandwiches you can microwave, coffee & oj. It was fine for a quick bite to eat before heading out on the road. Don't hesitate to stay here if your traveling and need a place to rest for the night. Priced better than others in the area.

friendly owners, large quiet room, well appointed, overall this is one of the best places i've stayed in the last 2 weeks on the road. would definitely be happy to stay again. they are still working on remodeling the outside of the building (all new windows and doors) but that should be done very soon.

I only was here for about 4 hours for a quick stop on a drive from chicago to phoenix, but really thought this was motel was a good value for the money. The owners are very nice and you can tell they truly care about all their desks, especially compared to what you'll get from the "big box" type chains that start the rates at $100...which, when only staying for a quick sleep really doesn't make any sense. I arrived "after hours" but the owners live on site so that was no problem at all once I arrived. Room was very clean, bed was comfortable, tv worked good-and the the in room free wifi is very quick, much better than I am used to at hotels and I'd say is comparable to what you'd get from a cable internet at home. Highly recommended this place.

Read the reviews posted here and you will get an idea of what the Crest Motel is. Sure, it's not one of the high end places but it's not one of the those on the other end either. If you're expecting a large, newly redecorated room with a big screen TV and a full course breakfast, dig a little deeper in your pocket and go somewhere else. But if you're looking for a comfortable place to stay with a friendly manager, clean linens and a comfy bed for a price that won't wreck the budget, this just might be the pace for you. We like the smallness of this motel and the quiet and peaceful surroundings that it offers. The management is great and works very hard to make your stay enjoyable. They are in the process of replacing windows and doors here and making other upgrades to the property. The grounds surrounding the motel were clean, mowed and neatly trimmed. We felt very safe here. As for breakfast, don't look to find the full meal deal; just the basics. That is not a problem with us as we prefer to drive over to Amana and eat at one of the several restaurants there. One other tip; there was not a coffee pot in the room. They did have a thermos in the break room though, but that didn't open until 7:00 or 7:30. We travel with a Keurig Mini brewer so this was not a problem for us. And yes, they do have free Wifi and it's better than any we've encountered in any motel where we've stayed before. What more can I say; we just like this place. We hope you will too.

Motel overlooks Tanger Outlet Mall. The bed was very comfortable and because it is on a hill, there is no traffic noise. We had a good nights sleep. There were two wing chairs with a table between for TV viewing or visiting. Also, a desk with a rolling chair, a fridge and a microwave in the room. Everything was in working order. Receptionist was very nice. Price was competitive. We would come back.

The owners were REALLY nice to us. Because it was so cold and snowy, they brought us breakfast, plowed us a path down the street, and shoveled around our car. We were really in need of a place to stay because of a huge snowstorm. This inn performed above and beyond our requirements. The sweetest people and we would chose this again anytime.

We called late on same day as check in, found on trip advisor. Needed handicap accessible /capable room & they had one, nice enough, passing space in front of room (really important when caring for someone who is disabled) room has handicap style seat in shower w/hand held sprayer and grab bars. We stayed at a a Super, 8 last night in Sterling, CO. (review posted ) this room/hotel is like the Tashma Hall by comparison! We will stay again if ever needed and would certainly recommend to anyone we know. (rooms dated, but clean-everything you really need is in the room)

My spouse and I spent two nights at the Crest Motel, while we were performing at the Iowa Renaissance Faire in Middle Amana. Our room was an average size, clean and comfortable. The bed was super comfy and we slept well during our stay. The motel offers a light continental breakfast - orange juice, coffee, bagels and cream cheese and microwavable breakfast sandwiches. Just enough for you to get up and out, without needing to spend money on breakfast at a restaurant. There is nothing fancy about this place - no pool or spa, but if you're exploring the area and only using your room to sleep, this motel fits the bill. The managers were helpful and kind and whenever they saw us coming or going, inquired if there was anything we needed. Can't get much better than that!

Nice roomy room with 2 large beds but with an eccentric location for the lamps - just where you'd rest your head! Ouch. Good rate, very helpful owners. Breakfast all right, breakfast room austere! Close to highway and restaurants.

There are very few motels like this anymore. Clean, comfy, cozy, perfect location on a hill. Nothing is worn or ragged or faded. Friendly people at the desk are the owners, and more helpful than we could imagine.

I forget how nice a local small town motel can be. Great location, helpful staff and clean rooms. They also have have a nice website for booking in advance. They accept pets as well. The continental breakfast was very basic but they had coffe, bagels and oj. Overall met our expectations and provided a comfortable place to sleep.

A wonderful stay. The front desk clerk was incredibly helpful and very, very nice. The motel offers a commercial drivers rate that was ridiculously low. The rooms are older so it's not perfectly clean, of course, but it was definitely not dirty. The bed was perfect, not too hard. Don't expect a large breakfast. There was coffee and juice, rolls and bagels. For the price, this was a fantastic pick. Will definitely stay again!!!

my family and i was moving across the country from cali to chicago and got stuck in the area because of car troubles. crest motel was pretty easy to spot considering its giant sign on top of the hill. this place is definitely not the nicest but is run by the nicest family ever. you can get a discount if youre a AAA member but if youre nice, the owner will give you a nice discount regardless! they have a mini breakfast bar with muffins, bagles, and fruit but theres a good amount of restaurants and gas stations near by if you want to grab a bite.

After a 12 hour drive, it was great to find a comfortable and inexpensive place to stay. Exceptionally clean, not fancy or fufu, bed was as good as any at a chain. I will stay there again and recommend it to friends. Fred at the front desk gave me a room in the quiet back corner that had a homemade quilt and told me about the continental breakfast

Stayed one night on a cross country trip. Very clean hotel. Nice owner. And very comfortable bed. Lots of green open spaces for your dog surrounded by farms. Worth the money. Not too many good places to eat nearby though. Would stay here again.

Independently owned means a lot to me as we also manage a hotel ourselves. The staff is wonderful and accommodating. Both times we have stayed were in king bed units and they were most comfortable.The rooms are clean and cozy with that personal touch not a franchise decor. Will stay again and again when we're in the area.

Clean and comfortable, although not a budget property
Testimonial Star Rating - 480075

Here we are on day 3 of our journey from Reno, NV to Rochester, NY. Our goal each evening is to find a clean, comfortable budget motel. In the Crest Motel we did find clean and comfortable, but pricier than we have found the past couple nights. All the hotels/motels in this area (Amanda Colonies) seem to be priced on the higher side, so plan accordingly if price is your primary concern. There was only one previous review on Trip Advisor, so I got most of my information from Yahoo Reviews. Bathroom was spotless, the room was freshly painted and the funiture was nicer than you would typically find in a motel room. Free internet without the hassle of a password. The room with two queen beds was quite large. The beds could have been more comfotable, but were adequate. The woman at check-in was very nice and the owner I assume. Parking was easy, with a spot just outside the room just like I like it. The Crest is pet friendly with a small fee. It's located on a hill within a few hundred yards of Interstate 80, but very quiet. The Crest was a nice find, but not a bargain by any means...but I would recommend staying here if you are in the area.

Homey and Quiet

The Crest motel sits on a hill just west of the outlet mall at the Williamsburg Iowa exit on I-80. It's a moderately priced independently owned "mom and pop" motel. Due to its location its very quiet. There are several fast food resturants in the outlet mall which is within walking distance. The front desk staff is very knowledgable with the nearby Amana Colonies and can direct you to places to visit as well as good eating spots especially in Amana (the largest of the colonies). The motel is a well cared for old/traditional design facility with exterior entrys and parking at your door. Most of the building is one story. Rooms have homey/country touches and are very clean. This is a great alternative to the chain motels in the area. I have stayed at this motel several times and have never been disappointed.

After driving 32 hours from Palm Springs, CA we arrived in Williamsburg, IA, and stopped at this great motel. We had a van with a trailer along with 2 dogs and this place worked out perfectly. Situated right off the highway it had a clean room, great view of some farms, huge area for the dogs to walk and play, good parking, a restaurant (great home cooked food) and gas station next door and friendly owners. It was a great stop and made our trip a lot easier. I highly recommend this place for travelers alike!
