 "The Merrill Hotel is a beautiful new hotel located right in the heart of downtown Muscatine overlooking the Mississippi River. The hotel is surrounded by a variety of local shops and restaurants in walking distance. There is a beautiful view from just about all the rooms. The staff is very friendly, and the food is amazing. We loved our stay at The Merrill and recommend the hotel to anyone coming into town or just looking for a little get away place to stay!" Previous Guest
