Take a look at what our customers say.

If you are traveling through Charles City, Iowa, Hartwood Inn is a great place to stay!! Free wifi, free breakfast, room service, friendly staff, clean rooms, A/C, fridge, microwave, etc. A quiet place along the Cedar River. Nothing fancy but perfect for my 3 day and 4 night stay! I would definitely stay again if the need arose!!

First of all, do not be concerned with the composite review score. This facility is under new management and they have made great strides in turning this motel around. New carpet, great mattresses. AC works fine, Sheets were terrific, good breakfast provided. No smoking rooms.
The place was full. “No Vacancies”. This was a Tuesday night. They must be doing something right.
My only concern was the pillows were a bit thin and the blankets were old. My guess, upon my next visit, those issues will be resolved too.
For an older property, it was a great value.
