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.

I stayed at this Holiday Inn Express as I was passing through Cedar Rapids on business. I am a Gold member so I stay in a lot of the Holiday Inn hotels. While this one is ranked a 4.5 star hotel on the IHG website, it was not a 4.5 star hotel in my opinion. I am giving it 3... More

What a nice place. Quiet, nice pool area. Only bummer was that since I didn't show my AAA card when I checked in she wasnt able to give me the discount. I was disappointed in that...I didn't think I had my card with me and then I found it. The worst thing I can say about the hotel itself is... More

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

First of all, I rarely bother to give reviews for hotels I use on business travel but the last stay I had at this hotel made me want to leave a review. I have stayed here many times on business and have rarely had issues. On this occassion I had some small problems on a Platinum room upgrade but was... More

We have stayed here several times. here is lots of parking and the location is excellent. The facility is okay--rooms are comfortable and in pretty good repair.When we arrived the room was incredibly hot and it took several hours to cook down even after we turned off the unit. Common areas are kept tidy. The staff is always cordial. The... More

Shannon at front desk was very nice, patient and very professional. Rooms were clean. Cleanliness is a pet peeve of mine so I did think the elevator floors needed some tlc or a least a good vacuuming. The TV (channel 7) was not coming in during my favorite show of course. I called the front desk and the night girl... More

This hotel was great! We had very fair rates for a room that slept 6 people. The room did not feel crowded and it was clean! The service was excellent and the breakfast had great variety. The only downside was that the key cards were easily de-magnitized, but the front desk fixed them quickly each time that it happened. The... More

King Suite-Reservation correct. Friendly greeting upon arrival. Bottled water and treats for IHG members. Fresh fruit in lobby. Ample free parking. Felt safe. Sofa, desk and comfortable bed with pillow choices. Some highway noise. Carpet felt unclean to bare feet. No microwave or mini-fridge. Good complimentary breakfast selection. Prefer bacon. Indoor pool. Small park across the road from the hotel.
