Good value

A great value in the Iowa City area. Convenient to downtown (about 5 mins drive). I have spent a night on three separate occasions over the past two years while on cross country trips. I would stay here again on the next trip. Rooms are basic but spacious. Internet worked.

Good Room

They could do a better job on breakfast. The staff and room were good. I would pick another motel if the rate were more competitive.

Not a bad place, fairly clean and beds and sheets look to be clean. The main lobby area is a bit fun down but rooms are average with no real complaints. Not bad for cheaper hotel

Pool is good for chilling beverages

The rooms are large. The facility, which is old, needs some upkeep. The pool is indoor, but not heated, so it would be good for chilling your six-pack, but not so good for immersing your body in the winter. The continental breakfast is minimal, but OK. The motel is right next to a fitness club, which can be a bonus, and near I-80 but far enough off so that it's not too noisy. Lots of green space nearby for pets. Nice restaurant connected.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Check with North Dodge Fitness Club, right next door, for short-term use. They have a pool, BBall courts, tennis, fitness, etc.

Hotel room

The place is dated. Staff minimally attentive at front desk. Room was dated and smelled accordingly. Smelled like people had been smoking in hallway and room smelled of smoke residue. (Please note this was a football weekend so this may have impacted hallway experience.) Wife found a water bug in our bed. Shower was dated with average water pressure. If you solely need a place to sleep and a quick shower the place will work but....

visiting family member in hospital

The woman, Susie, who checked us in was awesome! Very friendly, easy to talk to, and loved my baby. She seemed genuine. Other than some banging in the late evening, it was a peaceful stay. The woman at the front desk in the morning didn't even make eye contact with us. The breakfast was fairly delicious, and the location was very convenient for our purpose of being near the University Hospital. My only concerns were a loose rail on the patio (room 203 non-smoking) being that I have a curios crawling baby and the bathtub didn't drain very well.

BED BUGS

Filthy, dirty bed had bed bugs. Unsavory people hang out there. Non smoking areas had smoking and tobacco butts all over. But those bed bugs were disgusting. Husband became ill from the bites.
