We were promptly checked in by a genial staff and taking care of our business around Cedar Rapids by mid afternoon. The room was comfortable and the beds were much better than we sleep on at home. The TV had closed captioning already on, which I appreciate. I awaken earlier than my wife and enjoy watching the morning news while... More

Stopped overnight on a long trip and found the hotel to be welcoming, clean and quiet. These hotels are replacing Hamptons as my choice when traveling. This one had a very reasonable one-night rate and for the most part they are comparable to more expensive lodgings. Very good breakfast too.

The room we had was great, flat screen tv, king sized bed was comfy. Staff was excellent, check in was a breeze. Liked that Chili's is next door and we could drink some margaritas and just walk to the motel. Would stay here again if we go back!!

Our family visited Cedar Rapids to visit other family. The location is in a nice area and is relatively close to 380. The rooms are just little dated but are nice and clean. We used the indoor pool which was great for the kids. The staff was also very friendly.

Stayed here on our way back from a trip to South Dakota. We changed our travel plans so I didn't book a room ahead in Cedar Rapids as on our way to SD I noticed there were several hotels in the area and wasn't worried about finding a room. My first choice Hampton Inn said they were booked (internet said... More

We booked this hotel online a month before for 2 nights at the State Govt rate. My husband is in law enforcement and we frequently use the discount when traveling and have never had an issue.

We recently stayed here one night using rewards points while attending an event. The hotel was conveniently located just off 380 and near our event. There is a Chili's and a Panera right next door. Our room did not have a fridge and microwave like other similar hotels we had stayed at; they were available for extra charge. Other than... More

We booked a room with two queen beds. We checked the reservation the day before arrival and it showed two queen beds. When we arrived they gave us a King with a sofa-sleeper. The hotel was overbooked and they took our two queens for another guest prior to our arrival. They did not admit this, they just did it. Also... More
