Your Place to Stay in Grinnell, Iowa.

Definition: A room, group of rooms, or building in which someone may stay.

Falling asleep in a classroom never felt so right. Each of the 45 immaculate, upscale rooms and suites at Hotel Grinnell is designed to celebrate our building’s roots as the city’s junior high school from 1921 through the late ’70s.

Old-school nostalgia is evoked with touches like original hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, locker room-style benches, and chalkboards for notes, reminders, artwork, and daily announcements. Original, unique works of art hang on the walls to inspire your creative side.

We are Fido friendly!  Bring your pet for $30/pet, per stay!
