Recent guest reviews

Went home for vacation and this is the third time spent at this hotel. Everything was great, although I could have sworn last time we could open the window. My husband ended up very sick, and it would have been nice to have fresh air in the room, instead of recycled. My only complaint is ( and this happened last time also, with the same employee) when we were at the complimentary breakfast, there is a male employee who watches you like a hawk. Like he is afraid we will take the last sausage, as a matter of fact, last time in 2012 he pretty much told my husband that. I have no idea what his problem was since it was near the end of the time for breakfast and there was plenty. The one day I was there alone, a woman was taking care of breakfast, and she in no way made me feel rushed or uncomfortable. For the price of a King Executive ( almost $150 a night for 7 nights) I think we should be able to eat our breakfast without supervision.

Excellent stay and clean! Exactly what we needed! Fantastic breakfast too!

Right off I-380, good places to eat nearby, clean rooms, pool and fitness room.

We loved the room, except the sheets cling to your sleepwear. The breakfast is fantastic and all the Staff was very friendly. We will be staying there the next time we visit Cedar Rapids.

The hotel was conveniently located near the Eastern Iowa Airport. Staff were friendly and professional.

Hotel was easy to find off highway. Hotel lobby, pool and room were clean in appearance. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Employee working our first evening was the only employee working in the entire hotel, was very busy assisting guests but gave great customer service to us. Surprised however, there would be only one employee working on a busy Saturday night. Overall, our stay was nice. Only critiques to give would be that the breakfast could have had more variety and the bed was springy.

Husband slipped in tub and fell to his knees hitting his elbow. There were no anti-skid strips in the tub nor was there any bathtub mat, plus the bottom of the tub curved making it extra slippery. On a more minor note, the toilet handle was broken and kept sticking causing the toilet to keep running. And the pool, though refreshing, did look a bit cloudy. On the positive side the free breakfast was great with a staff person always there to promptly bus the tables and restock anything that was getting low. The bathroom was large with plenty of counter space. The room was clean and nicely furnished. I would have given room comfort a much higher rating had the tub not been dangerously slippery.

Although the purpose for our trip was a sad one (attending a celebration of life for a dear friend), the hotel was very comfortable and the breakfasts provided each morning were wonderful. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. The only "surprise" was that I had requested to book into the Holiday Inn Express we stayed at in December, which was in the NE part of town. Unfortunately, this hotel was in the SW part of town, which was farther away from our destination. However, we adjusted and enjoyed our weekend.

I normally don't like to spend too much on hotels, but felt like being comfortable. The room was very clean and beds were comfortable. Shower had great water pressure and heat, but took a while to warm up. Pool and hot tub were very nice and relaxing. Breakfast was somewhat lacking, but pretty much what you'd expect. Really impressed with the staff. They were extremely friendly. I would stay here again for sure.

This is my third time of staying at this hotel and each time has been excellent. The front desk is always accommodating and helpful. The rooms are clean and the breakfast area clean as well. They have a good selection of fruits so that is excellent if you are not a pancake and waffles and egg person.

Hotel was clean, nice. Room lived up to more than my expectations. It was prefect for what my family needed it for and for the perfect price. Very happy with our stay and would recommend the hotel to others.

No problems and what you'd expect for a quality experience in the Holiday Express / Hampton / Fairfield segment. Manager's beer reception in the late afternoon was a nice touch- Linenkugel's, Mike's Hard Lemonade, cookies, snacks, 2 drink coupons per guest. Breakfast was great - pancakes, biscuits and gravy, ripe fruit, yogurt, etc., and always well-staffed. Room was clean and comfortable. Good shower pressure and temperature. Wi-fi access was free and fast-enough. Lobby computer and printer worked for printing boarding passes. No problems and good stay!

This is the second time around for our family and as with the first the service was excellent. The breakfast was wonderful. Staff is very friendly. Again the only thing that would add to this stay would be a small fridge in the room. Definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Newly renovated Holiday Inn Express very friendly and accomodating staff. Our room with 2 queen beds was large. Clean. Breakfast was the same as others but attendant was very friendly.

Good for quick overnight business stay. Very nice personell. Great breakfast in morning.

My stay was very, very pleasant. The location is ideal and easy to access, just right off of I-380 (Hawkeye Downs). Very convenient. The staff was very courtesy and accommodating. Breakfast buffet was very clean wee stocked and delicious. Excellent housekeeping Services. The room was clean and comfortable. The parking lot was well lit. No problems there!!!

Was there for a family wedding. Location is in an industrial-type area with a coffee shop and a few fast-food restaurants. Uncomfortable beds, No refridgerator in room, and work-out room could use some updating. Nice pool/jacuzzi area. Easy hwy. access. Breakfast was decent although staff running it were less than friendly. View from our room was a pile of trash/debris and listened to the freight train running throughout the night.

The room was a perfect place to fall asleep after long days of reuniting with former classmates; it was quiet, spacious, clean, and well-equipped. The complimentary breakfast had many healthy options; hot items were hot and cold items fresh and cold. I was traveling alone and felt very safe and secure both inside and in the parking area.

It was very nice. Our kids loved the pool. It was 3 minutes from the church we had to be at for a Baptism. Staff was very friendly and recommended and excellent Mexican resturant. We had a great experience at a great price!!

Great room, awesome beds, great TV, strategically located hotel with several areas to dine within walking distance. The hotel staff was awesome especially the person making breakfast on Sat. morning. The hot tub was very relaxing. The atmosphere was very friendly. Internet a bonus. Would recommend it highly.

vacation back home

Couples

Went home for vacation and this is the third time spent at this hotel. Everything was great, although I could have sworn last time we could open the window. My husband ended up very sick, and it would have been nice to have fresh air in the room, instead of recycled. My only complaint is ( and this happened last time also, with the same employee) when we were at the complimentary breakfast, there is a male employee who watches you like a hawk. Like he is afraid we will take the last sausage, as a matter of fact, last time in 2012 he pretty much told my husband that. I have no idea what his problem was since it was near the end of the time for breakfast and there was plenty. The one day I was there alone, a woman was taking care of breakfast, and she in no way made me feel rushed or uncomfortable.
