Property was OK

Easy access but we booked this hotel because we wanted a pool- even stopped to buy a swim suit. When we checked in we were told the pool was closed and there wouldn’t be breakfast. The CDC recommendations don’t advocate closing pools because there isn’t any evidence to support closing because chlorine kills the virus. They charged the regular price even without a pool or breakfast. Really bad communication.

There was nothing really unique about the place it was pretty clean and the bed was pretty comfortable and it was quiet

Musty smell in the room. Staff very friendly. Hot Breakfast was satisfactory.

Close to I 90, excellent Mexican restaurant attached to the hotel and a gas station across the street. Comfortable, clean and convenient.

Quick and easy check-in at midnight!!! No one around but us,

The shower was dirty and the shower curtain rod was crooked so it couldn’t close. The floors were tile, which was fine for a pet-friendly room, but they felt pretty grungy. Overall, it just felt old, which perhaps it is. We could clearly hear a child from across the hall screaming crying for much of the night and later heard a family fighting right outside our window in the parking lot. It wasn’t a very restful night.

Great location. Breakfast was great (the usuals plus biscuits/gravy & scrambled eggs. The staff was friendly & check in went great. Really nice sleep over for the money.

Very poor internet. Couldn’t access internet all night. One room couldn’t access cable tv either.

Nice place. Great breakfast!....not typical for budget accommodation.

Comfortable bed, staff responsiveness, clean facility & good Mexican food next door.

Was surprised at g How nice and clean it was Descent hot breakfast Would stay again without question

Good value with an excellent traditional Mexican restaurant. The beds were too soft to get comfortable and Travhad replaced the advertised exercise room with a small, shallow pool. The entire staff were very courteous.

Out dated boaring hotel. Not very clean need some updates and had mold growing in the ac unit. Won't stay again.

It was a good stay. Great price. Friendly staff. Pet friendly

I like this little hotel. Downtown Iowa city will cost u $200+ per day. This location is a 5 minute drive from downtown with free parking. If you’re looking for a cheap place to stay that is clean and close to downtown Iowa city then this is your place. I’ve stayed here 3 times of the past couple years and had no problems.

This hotel is acceptable only given the low price.

It was clean and everything was great. Outside and inside was clean. lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

My family of four stayed one night here. The room was fine. The bathroom could use an update, but the shower worked well enough. The kids enjoyed the pool.

Check in was quick and staff friendly and accommodating. The room was comfortable and clean. Since the last time I stayed there, some remodeling was done and it was nice. I appreciate that they are working at conservation

I am sorry to hear of your issues with us, however I do need to point out that the IA health department mandated that all hotel/public pools and fitness centers be closed. It was not the hotels decision. We will reopen our pool when the health department decides it is safe for our guests. Thank you for your feedback.
