Our son and his now wife had their reception at the Longbranch. The Room set up was beautiful. The food was delicious! Every person working for that hotel treated our group very well. Would recommend it to anyone.

The Long Branch provides clean rooms, great value, and a great bar. I stay here frequently and enjoy the staff, the pool area rooms, and the bar area in the front of the hotel. While the hotel is older, the rooms are remodeled and in great shape and very clean.

Very clean and good location. Stayed with my niece. The breakfast was ok not great. The only problem we had was that our room was located over an indoor recreation area. The first evening, a group of about 30 people were enjoying this area. We had our fan going and could still hear the kids running and screaming. This was... More

I always stay here when in Cedar Rapids. The staff is friendly and the property is very clean, bright and comfortable. The rooms are spacious and newly decorated I believe. The pool is large enough for laps and opens at 6:00 AM which is great if you are traveling for work. The breakfast is a nice, hot buffet and presently... More

Love the breakfast and the location. Walking distance to multiple shopping locations. The pool area is dark. The few times I have swam at this hotel, the water has been cloudy, and I get an ear infection after. The water quality needs to be more closely monitored. The Longbranch Restaurant is excellent for all members of the family. The food... More

My wife and I were in Cedar Rapids overnight for a concert. Room was nicely decorated, clean and neat. Modern, updated appearance and furnishings. Beds were very comfortable. The walk-in shower was especially nice.

We stayed in this hotel while visiting with family, and were very impressed. The room was clean, the staff was helpful and friendly, and we loved the pool area. There is an open, atrium area between the pool and breakfast lounge that is perfect for visiting with families and playing cards or board games. I was impressed with the fresh,... More

This hotel has a lot of great things; swimming pool, free HOT breakfast, recreation area, gym, onsite restaurant and the rooms are lovely. Located in a good area of Cedar Rapids, close to shopping and dining and only a short trip to downtown! One downside is the room I stayed in was right across the atrium (a large indoor space... More

This hotel is the largest best western I've ever stayed. Attached to an actual gym by a covered pathway/bridge. It is close to the lindall mall (I think that's the name) bed bath and beyond and other stores and restaurants. You do have to cross the highway but it is not that dangerous. As my first time, I needed the... More

This was a pretty quirky looking hotel and the layout is a little strange, but we really enjoyed our stay. The room was clean, the staff was friendly, it was quiet, and the kids enjoyed the pool area. We didn't try the breakfast since we were out of there pretty early. I would definitely stay there again if I was... More
