Shuttle staff

Our stay was excellent , the housekeeping staff needs to be more friendly and a little more detailed when cleaning. As for the shuttle staff they were the best, they were friendly and took us everywhere we wanted to go with no complaints, and we were very busy. The breakfast was excellent daily , but we did report a damaged toilet tissue holder in our bathroom three times that was not repaired prior to our departure . They have to improve on their maintenance response and I really think they need a pool for families with kids . Remember MOA is building a hotel so you need to be able to pull guest with your amedities.

Exceeded my expectations

Since my son started his own business in Iowa, I wanted to explore the area and culture and spend time with my son. The location was perfect ( right off highway 35), and the hotel staff went out of their way to recommend places of interest and give directions for driving for needed shopping or dining. It would have been perfect if they had a pool or hot tub.

lacking some important things

Not very good. The towels were very rough to the skin. One day, I took the comforter off the bed nd laid it on the floor during sleep. the bed was made without it the next day? The treadmill broke down in very minimal "fitness center." Parked in a handicapped space all night accidently because they are only lightly marked in space and not with blue signs. No place to park near building because of design. One day (we stayed four nights) we did not received shampoo. Finally, the desk attendants are not allowed to use a chair, so it looks odd that you see them kneeling on the phone and makes you feel sorry for them. Beds were comfortable.

Not real bad just very aggravating

Shuttle service upsetting. Were told it went to mall every half hour, that didn't work. Then you had to pick a time you wanted to leave and when you were coming back. Still had to wait. Need two shuttles, one for airport one for mall. The bottom sheet would not stay on the bed. Through the night we had to get up and put it back on. The stool had flushing problems. Every morning they ran out of plates for breakfast and it took at least 15 minutes to get more. People were nice and breakfast was descent. Hallway carpet needs cleaned.
