This hotel is a great value for the Cedar Rapids area. The onsite gym is excellent and the free breakfast is great. I would stay here again due to the location, great service, and prices. While the property is older it is in excellent shape and the staff is wonderful.

Because of volunteer work that I have been doing for the last twenty years I find myself in hotel rooms around the country (and periodically outside the United States) on several occasions, and like I do so many times I called in my reservation at the last minute. While rooms with two queens were booked I was offered a suite... More

We stayed two nights and found the hotel comfortable. The breakfast was below average and we were made to sign in before partaking. The pool area is nice and a great place to gather to socialize. The room was clean. Much of the parking lot is on a hill, something to take note of if on a motorcycle. We would... More

The hotel room itself was clean. We appreciated the flat screen tv, microwave and refrigerator. The room itself was sufficient; bathroom was very small. The pillows were small and two side-by-side did not span the entire width of the bed. The bed and pillows were terribly soft so both my husband and I woke up with terrible backaches. Pricing was...

We had a great stay! Staff was helpful, room was very nice, the free breakfast was very nice, and it was so nice to have the conference rooms available at the hotel! Great location as the mall is close by (helpful when I realized I left my hanging clothes at home!) and there are lots of choices nearby to eat.

This is a nice hotel at an attractive price with an excellent points system. They meet the standard requirements of the business traveller - free internet service, free breakfast, an exercise room, and pool, and a business center in case you need to print something.
