Hello! My name is Chi Eastin and I am the General Manager of the Kingsley Inn. I am thrilled to be a part of this wonderful hotel and I look forward to welcoming guests very soon! I’ve been in the hospitality industry in various forms since graduating from Midstate College in the Travel and Hospitality Operations program in 1995. Since then, I’ve worked in hotels, as a tour operator, a travel agent, tourism office assistant and an event planner. I believe that my background has prepared me for this new endeavor and I’m ready to share the Kingsley Inn and Southeast Iowa with guests!  “I enjoy meeting new people and sharing my love of the area with them.  I want to share my hometown area with guests from all over! I think of myself as their personal concierge!”


Welcome back to the Kingsley Inn! Not just to our guests, but to Bonnie Bell! Bonnie has been with the Kingsley Inn for 9 years until the business closed in early 2018.  This one-woman dynamo has done everything at the hotel including maintenance, cooking breakfast, housekeeping and was a welcoming face at check in that has greeted thousands of weary travelers.
