Hometown Inn & Suites Cedar Rapids

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is just very dingy and drab. The TV in my room did not work and I had to change rooms. The front desk staff was extremely sweet and patient and helpful even though it was 4 am when I arrived--and kindly, she let me check out 2 hours late the next day. Breakfast was OK but nothing healthy available. The bathroom was very old and not in good shape. Location was super convenient to highway though. Not a great value overall but not a disaster either.

I wanted a place near the airport and this was very adequate for the price. Not 5 star quality, but decent enough. Bed was comfortable.

Staff was great, conveniently located. Close to interstate, restaurants and such.

The room was clean and very roomy. Bed was comfortable and temperature was fine. The only complaint was that the coffee pot still had grounds in it from the previous occupant.

My father (70) and my 4 year old son, with the same last name as me (room under my name), were locked out of the room while I was in the shower. Instead of being let in or given a key by hotel staff, they were told to wait outside the room until I was out of the shower... My father was not happy to be told to just wait outside the room with a four year old and told the employee so. A few mins after I got out of the shower and let them in, the police showed up at the door to my room! These people called the cops on a 70 year old man and a 4 year old?!? What great customer service... Needless to say, I will never stay there again and neither should you. P.s. The room smelled musty.

This hotel was located right off the highway and had many stores around it. The afternoon clerk was a helpful and informative guy. He pointed us in the right direction for dinner. The room was spacious and clean. I'm not sure how other rooms looked but we had a lot of room in ours. The bathroom was clean yet pretty tiny. I guess that's why the sink and mirror were outside the bathroom. There were some long term residents there that were cooking out on a grill which I think is a nice option. We all know fast food gets expensive and unhealthy. I would book this again.

Great breakfast, clean rooms. We enjoyed our stay the only thing was the pool was freezing cold. My 3 older sons didn't mind and swam most of our stay. My 2 year old couldn't stand the cold though and was shivering so badly we had to take him out. That was really the only downfall.

We got to the hotel late and the gentleman at the front desk was very nice. But the hotel itself was dirty, they weren't properly stocked with towels or the continental breakfast. The bed was comfortable enough and was worth the price.

This was a good hotel for the price. A large room with a recliner, refigerator and microwave. The bathroom was very small though. The staff was very pleasant, I would recommend this for the price.

We stayed here for 2 days when we were attending the soccer club and needed breakfast and a place to sleep. This place was clean and had a decent breakfast so it worked.

The Super 8 I stayed at the days before was cleaner and was half the price.

Lobby is beautiful, front desk staff very nice. Breakfast area very nice, usual breakfast offerings. Pool was nice sized, not very many chairs only 2 sitting areas. Room was on 2nd floor, carpet was new, walls had been painted, but didn't seem worth the price that was paid, bedspread was new but had a few spots on it looked like they would've washed right out if someone would've taken the time. Not impressed with the room at all, not worth the money.

THe only thing that was good was the free biscuts and gravy in the morning. The room was tiny, there was no hot water to take a shower, and the hotel was underconstruction.

We arrived late evening but everything and everyone was ready for us. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast area staff person was SOOO helpful to everyone and kept a very clean, well stocked breakfast area. Would definitely stay here again.
