Continue your journey into the past in Nauvoo, Illinois, located less than 16 miles from our hotel. You can visit several historical sites and enjoy wagon tours, carriage rides and visit the Nauvoo Temple. Our Keokuk, Iowa hotel near Nauvoo, IL provides a convenient location for seeing a piece of history and experiencing pioneer life.
Named for Chief Kiyo' kaga (meaning “one who moves about alert”), our town's name was chosen in a saloon. The name “Keokuk” was put to the nine townspeople present. Though Kiyo' kaga was not a full-blooded Indian, wasn’t in line to be chief, didn't live in the town and had the last name “LaMotte”, the motion carried eight to one. Keokuk blossomed anyway. Visit the Lock & Dam 19 an amazing feat of engineering which when completed in 1913 was the world’s largest electricity-generating plant. The Grand Theatre is another famed attraction built in the 1920s and then considered one the country’s finest theaters. If you like rocks and minerals bring a spade when you come to our hotel. Keokuk is home to the state's best geode collecting. A Keokuk Geode is usually up to four inches but sometimes reach two feet across. Reserve your room today at the Hampton Inn® hotel in Keokuk, IA, and “move about alertly” to the front desk and ask about the fun activities in our beautiful Iowa town.
