Jennifer at the front desk was amazing; she made the check in and check out process extremely smooth! Our room was nicer and spacious; I just wish they had larger trash cans in the room. My biggest complaint was the pool. You could smell the chlorine from down the hall; I ended up throwing my swimsuit away when I got home because after 3 washes, it still reeks of chlorine. They were filling the hot tub while we were done there, so we weren't able to use that.

Staff was super friendly & helpful. Made our stay more fun!

Rooms had a nice river view. Good location. Rooms were a good size.

There was no hot water when i took a shower. Parking cost was $15 and we were not informed of that until we arrived at the hotel.

The staff was very polite and our room was clean and comfortable. The hallways were a bit shabby (dirty carpet), but since the room was so clean, we didn't mind as much. The location was nice and we enjoyed the view of the river and capitol building.

The door to the bathroom kind of drug a little when shutting and very bright in room, need curtains that close all the way other than that it was a good stay.

Great view and a nice clean room. Easy access to the garage from our floor.

The bathroom wasn't all that clean. There was hair from a prior occupant on the floor, sink, and tub.

Thank you for the stay you guys are wonderful. Your beds ***** Five Stars!!!!!!!!!

Location is great! Rooms were clean and the parking garage is convenient.

Quiet, good location, decent free breakfast. Staff was all very kind and helpful.

Good location. Clean and staff were great, a little pricey for Iowa
