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

Six teachers and I arrived on a Monday evening for a conference in Cedar Rapids. When my roommate and I walked into the room, I noticed an odor. Before I settled in, I turned the lights on and on the bathroom floor were 3 big drops of brown substance, the garbage had not been emptied, and the toilet seat was... 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 are always treated well. The evening before we arrived, in the middle of our 9 hr trip, we received a call from the... More

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

This was the first time I stayed at this hotel. It was clean, seemed new, very nice staff. Room was great with even some extra amenities (mouthwash, etc). Internet was good. The pool was closed for repairs. Breakfast was very nice. They had my favorite- fruit!! And it was NOT nasty over ripe bananas like most hotels. I loved the... More

Reserved a room with a king size bed. Room had 2 queen size beds. Bathroom fan did not work. One of 2 key cards did not work. Hot tub was dirty--lots of hair and dirt floating in the water. Breakfast was great and staff were friendly.

The only reason for the 4 stars was the weather. Since it was -22 outside, the floor level rooms were cold by the window & there was some cold air leaking in by the heat registers. It was easy to fix with a towel over the crack so I didn't bother management. The breakfast area was in front of the... More
