Iron Horse Motel/Lamplighter: Very nice budget lodging
We have stayed at this motel many times over the years and have never had a bad experience - even when we arrived very late. The motel was recently redecorated and upgraded. It is always clean and the front desk staff is friendly.
There are mini-fridges and microwaves in every room and there is a complimentary basic breakfast available until 10:30 each morning. There is free wireless in each room - plus a computer in the breakfast room if you didn't bring your laptop.
Drawbacks are no pool or exercise room. Some rooms have a motel/parking lot view. There are smoking/non-smoking rooms on the same floor. I am very sensitive to this smoke, but I only noticed the odor when the maids were cleaning. When they are finished and the doors closed, I did not notice it at all!
But if you don't need all the frills and are on a budget, this is the best/least expensive place to stay in the area.
A room with 2 Queen beds for three is about $70 (+$7 tax).. A large room with one Queen bed - plus hide-a-bed and casual chair is also $70 for 2 people. AND it's quiet!!

Walking distance to several restaurants/fast food and a large Walmart and shopping mall.
About 1/2 mile to large city park with an aquatic center and wonderful large playground.
Less than mile to downtown.
About 20 miles from Iowa Great Lakes region where room can easily be 2x to 3x the price.
