    THANK YOU!!!

    Whenever my family and I stay at a hotel in Keokuk, we always stay at the Chief Motel! I love being able to park my car just a few steps from the door to my room! There are certain inconveniences, like having to walk a bit (outside) to get to the ice machine, but in the same room, they do have a washer and dryer for tenants' use. We have stayed at the Chief at least once a year over the past 13 years, and EVERY TIME, the rooms have been clean, good smelling, and (for the most part), in good repair. The owners care about you, and about their place! Nice towels. (Continental breaskfast has to be carried back to the room [up and down 4 stairs] and it is just cold cereal and Little Debbie's snacks. [Be sure to take the tray that the ice bucket is on, so you can use it to carry your things). Dairy Queen is right across the street. HyVee grocery store, Walmart, Dollar Tree, Taco Bell, and much more within walking distance.

    Pleasant but not perfect

    Still some issues, but my room gave you the feeling that they really are trying to make it a pleasant stay. Room had definitely been given a face lift recently with fresh paint and flooring etc.

    Added a service charge for using Expedia. Your site says No Booking Fee. What do I do now?

    The Chief is a good old fashioned strip motel right on Main Street. A mile West of the Mississippi River. There is a nice park over at the river's edge. Tons of stores and restaurants nearby. No frills, but I slept like a baby here.

    The rooms were damn clean and the beds made me feel like I needed to have sideburns and bell bottoms to stay there but the mattresses were wow type of comfortable! The bathrooms looked modern and clean. I can not complain at all for a non corporate hotel.

    Beds too small but fine for just passing through.

    It said queen beds but they felt much closer to a full. The queen beds we had at another hotel the night before was bigger. Otherwise everything was wonderful.

    A GEM IN KEOKUK

    This us a smaller, privately-owned, older motel. The owners of this motel are caring and available 24/7 to make sure that things are right during your stay (they even brought a plunger at midnight). I like the convenience of having my car parked right outside my door. Breakfast consists of ONLY: 3 types of cold cereal, 4 types of individually packaged (Little Debbie's type) baked goods--2 kinds of donuts & 2 kinds of muffins, milk and sometimes orange juice (that's the entire menu)...and has to be carried back to the room to eat it (careful, you will have to manage 4 stairs to get to the office (where the breakfast items are kept & also to check in). Have stayed here more than once before and rooms are consistently clean and nice. Non-smoking doesn't smell like smoke. Washer & dryer, in nice condition, on property, as well as an ice machine. Fridge & microwave in every room. There us also a very nice laundramat right across the street, Walmart, Sonic, Hyvee, Dairy Queen (cold foods only), KFC, Pizza Hut, Happy Joes, and MUCH MORE within walking distance, too. Best lodging price in town.
