The property was recently converted to a Comfort Inn and has been remodeled. The finishes are relatively new (as of June 2015), but a bit of the "old" peeks through if you look closely at the finishing details. However, the room was clean and comfortable, though the air-conditioning unit struggled to remove the humidity from the room so it felt... More

My husband and I were on vacation--had driven all day and wanted to find a place to relax and stay the night. We had made a reservation ahead of time; when checking in the staff put us in one room but gave us keycards for another room. She had remembered that she had written the incorrect number on the keycard... More

We traveled from Kentucky for the horse races in Altoona IA 6/12-6/13 The Casino and horse track is directly across the street so for us the location was ideal. The hotel has been renovated in the past 60 days so new beds, pillows, carpet, paint...the rate was $100 less than the Casino and $40 cheaper than most others in area.... More

We were NOT TOLD in advance that the pool was out of use, which is one of the main reasons we chose it. TV did not work at all. Found old food on the floor in the room. The microwave didn't work properly.

I recently stayed at this hotel for three nights for the State Track and Field meet. When we first arrived, everything seemed fine. The rooms have been updated and are now much more modern than in the old photos posted here. The room was clean, other than a large wad of hair found in the bathroom. The wifi was super... More

On May 22nd 2015 I stayed in room 127 and brought along my 12 pound puppy. I let the front desk know if my puppy barks to please give me a call because I was going to be away for a few hours. When I came back my dog was locked in the bathroom with the light off. Luckily for... More

Hotel was clean, well staffed and comfortable. Front desk staff was very good. I will stay here again! Nice indoor pool and hot tun too. Breakfast was eggs, sausage, gravy, waffles and chipped beef as well as the usual other suspects.

We have stayed several times while visiting the nearby casino. The rooms are a little dated, but always clean with a good free breakfast and the staff has always been friendly. We liked the shuttle bus to and from the casino. We enjoyed the hot tub
