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!

My father in law was at the VA hospital so my husband and I spent the night here while visiting from Chicago. The main areas appeared to be updated and our room was somewhat. Perhaps the halls and pool area can get some attention but overall, our room was clean, bed was comfy and the lobby and breakfast area were... More

Would rate a 2.5 if able to. Not poor but not quite average. Honestly a good value if you are looking for a cheap night's stay somewhere. The staff was courteous, it was clean and the breakfast good, but the hotel itself needs some serious updating. The floors creak to the point that I knew which room our travelling companions...

We stayed at the Heartland Inn while visiting family over Christmas. The service was exceptional. The hotel services area hospitals, and provides shuttle service to and from for customers who are receiving treatment. It was so heartwarming to observe how the front desk staff, breakfast servers and cleaning staff ALL went above and beyond to meet the special needs of... More

This was a one night stay, arriving late and leaving early. However, the room was quite comfortable, clean and acceptable. The breakfast was somewhat satisfying, but not really great. Parking was adequate - a must for a road warrior. The internet was reliable and the fridge and microwave at this star level is good. I give a score of "average"... More

We had to go to Iowa City for an appointment, and needed to go the night before. We chose the Heartland Inn due to reviews on Trip Advisor. They did not steer us wrong. The room was comfortable, as was the bed. There were both a microwave and refrigerator in the room. The room was clean, as was the bath.... More
