One night sleepover.

This hotel not up to Comfort Inn standards; appeared to me to have been converted from a Super 8 or some other hotel with lower standards. There was a large piece of roof tile on the floor in the 2nd floor hallway. Also, funny smell throughout; I thought they were trying to mask the smell from smoking. If I had paid $75.00, I would say OK; but this hotel was about $119 with tax so I say not a good deal for sure. Bathroom very small.

Great place to stay while visiting Iowa State

My daughter and I spent one night in this reasonably priced hotel. Although it shows signs of age, the rooms were clean and the pool area was nice. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful! We really enjoyed the breakfast in the morning. I would definitely recommend this hotel; and, if my daughter chooses Iowa State for college, we will definitely be back!

Excellent experience

We were in town for a quick vacation and the hotel met every need. The location was good for us. It was easy getting to. The breakfast was excellent. The staff was very friendly. We visited the Reiman Gardens on campus and the location was easy to get to. I was happy with the DQ so close to the hotel!

front desk barely spoke to us when checking in, but was more helpful later in the evening; room was fine; bathroom very small - definitely no room for 2 people at once; breakfast was pretty decent - had stuff to make a sausage & egg muffin sandwich

Perfect for our needs

We were in town to visit Iowa State. We just needed a place to stay for one night. We wanted something inexpensive but clean and quiet. We also wanted a continental breakfast so we could get out right away in the morning. This suited our purpose perfectly. The room and bathroom were very clean. The sheets were crisp and smelled slightly of bleach which told me they were very clean. I also noticed that there was a germ cover that encased the mattress. With the recent bed bug scare I appreciated this. The hotel staff was pleasant. The noise level was not too bad considering how close we were to the highway. The breakfast was good and it was nice that it included a waffle machine. The only complaint is the smokers standing outside the side and front doors and the main level hallway could use some new carpet - there was a slight odor. Otherwise, perfect. Thank you!

economy motel feel

Breakfasts were good and they kept area's clean, staff attentive. Hot tub almost unusable with the blower/fan that buzzed so loud you couldn't enjoy using the tub. There was almost zero water pressure in the showers. So bad, it was hard to rinse soap out of your hair.
