Location was excellent and good value for your money. Complimentary breakfast was good. Pool chairs were in terrible shape and not comfortable or stable.

Location in the heart of restaurants and very close to the airport

Inexpensive, close to the airport for early morning flight. Had breakfast ready by 5 a.m. so I could be at the airport by 6:30.

Very nice accommodations for the price, staff was exceptionally friendly, will stay there again

Staff was friendly and hotel was clean. Perfect for our 1 night stay over on our road trip out West. Breakfast was good!

We liked the hotel. Did have a problem around 9:30 at night. Our bathroom filled with cigarette smoke. The bathroom fan wasn't working. So someone was smoking in a smoke free hotel which was going into other rooms. We were switched to another room.

We came in late after being at the hospital. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable, and we didn't have any issue sleeping there.

The smoking room had ashtrays but the beds were hard as a rock. Found more comfort in the chair ... Sad but true

Got to the hotel. First room we went to was not clean. Second room we went to was not a king size bed as reserved. Third room we went to was a suite for the same money however we couldn't get one of the TV's to work. Breakfast was luke warm so I heated it up in the microwave. We were one of the first ones for breakfast at 6 a.m. I might add.

Nice hotel by the restaurants and shopping. Comfortable and reasonably priced.

Great location. Will stay here again. Appreciated the breakfast. Only problem was people in next room smoking in non-smoking room. The smoke smells permeated our room and hallway.

Was the only hotel available...will make other arrangements next time.

Was put in a smoking room. Still washing the smoke smell out of my clothes.

We booked this hotel for parents' weekend at ISU. The room was immaculate and much more spacious than I had anticipated. The bathroom was, again, immaculate and a lot larger than I had thought. The location was convenient to the ISU campus. They even had a free breakfast (which was a nice surprise) with a nice selection of items. The women who were on duty when we checked in at night and when we left in the morning (two different women) were both extremely nice and friendly! We also met a male housekeeper who was so nice and sweet and polite! My son is graduating in May and we will probably be booking our rooms here in the next month or so--that is how impressed we were with this hotel and staff!

The hotel is in a great location at a major intersection; and close to the airport. It was quiet with comfortable beds. The pillows reminded me of bite-size Snickers. Neither the shower drain or the bathroom sink drain worked. The air conditioner worked overtime just to keep the room tolerable. No added bells and whistles at this hotel. Definitely not worth the price.

Did not feel very safe at the hotel. Thought the hotel had an indoor pool. Carpeting was dirty.

I went to a conference in town and stayed at QI. Great location. Short drive to ISU student center. Close to many shops and restaurants. Very affordable relative to other local hotels. Clean. Price includes basic Breakfast, enough to get you going. Good basic hotel, safe, clean, no complaints. Would recommend to friends looking for a good value, comfortable & clean room, without lots of frills or expense. Plan to go back to hotel for next yrs conference.

I was stuck in a smoking room this may have been an Orbitz problem as I know I checked a box for non smoking. The floor was dirty, the toilet ran slow and the host directed me to a door the farthest possible point from my room causing me to lug the bags all that distance,
