There on work ,but they provide free shuttle rides to the area VA and University of Iowa. All smoke free property but they have nice areas on the river side of the building for smokers to relax. I...

Just wanted to give a special thanks to Natalie at the front desk! She was an exceptionally nice person who genuinely cared and went out of her way to make sure that our stay was as comfortable as possible. Thank you, Natalie!!

We had a nice room with 2 queen sized beds. Clean throughout. Near the VA hospital. Good breakfast and even had hotdogs and cookies in the evening on the day we were there. Something different each night. Friendly hosts, free coffee, tea, cappachino or hot cocoa. It was a smoke free hotel.

Stayed here because it was the official hotel for a conference at the university. It was fine, the room was very clean and the location was good, near several restaurants. The bed had the flattest pillows I have ever had in a hotel, and an absolutely tiny bedside table/shelf. The furniture overall was a bit strange - just a tall... More

The motel itself OK, maybe a 2* property. However, with the 25 to 50 yellow-shirted out-of-state contractors dominating the public areas, preventing you from eating breakfast, hanging around the outside of the hotel smoking, etc. it was horrible!!! I was about to take a hard-boiled egg and I saw one of the yellow-shirts in front of me forgo the tongs... More

The front desk staff were nice. The breakfast and evening receptions were generous. I was surprised to see homemade lasagna soup in a crockpot at the evening reception and homemade biscuits and gravy included with plenty of other food for breakfast. The even had low fat Greek yogurt. The location was good for us as we were touring the University... More

On the way, we stopped for one night lodging. The room was clean and ok. But, the front desk service, checking in, wasnt so friendly. Often, even if the rooms are not all that good, as long as the service is good, we would feel good about our stay. Maybe she had a long day. Still, as a customer, it... More

Daniel, Thank you for your recent review. I am so sorry about the lack of customer service you received at check in. I couldn't agree with you more that customer service is the most important part of a hotel stay. Typically, we receive compliments on our customer service, so, I am a bit puzzled by your experience. I appreciate your... More

I needed to stay in the Coralville area for a few days and got a good deal here. The place is kind of run down. The rugs are worn out and there is old furniture in the rooms. This place is in need of a dire refurbishing. But the place was clean.

We stayed here while my Father was in the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. They made us feel at home at all times. The rooms were clean and very affordable. The food in the lobby was very good. The shuttle service was so convenient. I would not stay anywhere else!
