Clarion Hotel Highlander Conference Center

Okay older hotel

The hotel is tucked away off of the road and you can't see it from the road. So, they could use a sign pointing the way to the hotel. Our first impression driving up to the hotel was that the place was older and possibly run down, but once we got inside everything was pretty nice. The guy who checked us in didn't have much of a personality but he was efficient. The rooms were large and clean. We ate dinner in the bar/restaurant which wasn't bad. Overall, a good experience.

Residence Inn by Marriott Coralville

Staff were not always helpful or understanding. Did not appreicate the lack of concern or meeting our needs. We had no internet or TV. Could not handle business via internet and without tv service it was boring.

Hometown Inn & Suites Cedar Rapids

Close to all needs

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.
