This is a wonderful place to stay especially if you are staying for a few days. The kitchen facilities are great, the staff is courteous, and the breakfasts were more than we expected. To top it all off the price was great.

They have a large outside patio that was a nice meeting place one of the nights. The suite we had had 2 bedrooms, kitchen, living room and bathroom. All was clean and the... More

This is a very nice place to stay. I would preface that with..."Make sure you specify Smoking or Non Smoking" when you make your reservations. I stayed here for 4 nights and got a Smoking room that was JUST ABOUT more then I could stand. Thank God for Fabreze...!!!! The staff tried to find me another room, but they were... More

He also said there rooms were dirty and was not enough places to sleep in the room. I would never reccommend this hotel to anyone and now I have to... More

Immediately upon walking into the lobby, the smell of smoke was noted. I was in a nonsmoking room, but even the hallways smelled of smoke. My bedspread and blanket both had cigarette burns, but no odor was apparent. The chairs near the table were stained and disgusting. On the upside, The bathroom was clean and the bed was comfy!

We had a family get-together for the second time at this hotel and found most everything very accommodating. Most of our party of 20 adults and four little ones were attending the Hawkeye game in Iowa City on Saturday. Three rooms of us arrived on Friday night and were greeted with a very friendly and helpful front desk person. She... More

Nice hotel -front desk staff was very accommodating on Friday night when we got there. The gal on Saturday and Sunday didn't seem like she really liked her job-I told her the coffee was out and seemed she really didn't want to have to take care of it. Breakfast was very good. Our room needed some updating-carpet was stained and... More
