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

My son recently stayed at this hotel for a birthday party-he said it was a suite that was rented and he came home with a rash all over his body! 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

Both of my wife's adult children live in Cedar Rapids, and her daughter was unable to travel to our house in a small town in northwest Illinois to celebrate Christmas, which is our annual tradition. So my wife, my mother-in-law, and I decided to take our Christmas festivities to Cedar Rapids. The MainStay Suites was the perfect place for us... More

I traveled to Cedar Rapids on business and stayed at the MainStay. I love the kitchen area as I like to go back from my meeting and relax and not have to go out to eat. They didn't do any housekeeping except by request which was perfect to me!!

If you plan to be in Cedar Rapids for a week or more, you will find the rooms here clean and a fair value. However don't expect any frills or even any maid service to clean the room, bring fresh towels, empty trash, etc. How can request fresh towels at the front desk, however. There is a clean pool, however... More

This hotel was very clean. The rooms have a full size frig and stovetop so I didn't have to eat out. The staff was very friendly and the price was great. I would definately recommend this hotel if you are in the area.
