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.
