I will start off with the positive: the bed was comfortable. We stayed in "the dungeon" (so named by another guest) down these narrow stairs without elevator access. The room was musty, the floor damp. The breakfast area smelled. Go somewhere else.

25+ years in the military with hundreds of stays at hotels and have never had a more helpful and professional welcoming than that by Holiday Inn Receptionist Erika Pohlman (at the Coralville Iowa Holiday inn).

I spent my first night in Iowa City at this Holiday Inn and would have stayed another night if they would of had another open non-smoking room. I was on the 3rd floor with a view of the indoor pool. I didn't get to the hotel until around midnight and they were waiting for me at the front desk. I... More

It's an older Holiday inn and some of the decor needs to be updated but the rooms are modern for the most part. Beds and rooms are comfortable with a nice bathroom, although the tub could of been scrubbed better. Has a fridge, microwave, large tv and good space to work on the desk with plenty of outlets.

We have held an meeting there for the last few years. We always get stuck in the party room off by the restaurant. I was upgraded for the night, but the hallways are so confusing and like a puzzle to get around. And my room was next to the workout/fitness room, so it was noisy. Rooms are nice and have... More

Hotel was clean, smelled good, spacious, had new furniture and a very comfy bed with multiple pillow options. Toiletries were bath and body works so that was a bonus. Staff was friendly and service was prompt even late at night.

I stayed here as a last minute reservation, after booking on Hotwire. My room felt modern, and I got a decent night sleep (which I often don't in hotels). The room I got was spacious, but because of the layout of the property, guest rooms are a decent walk away from the front desk. My room was equipped with an... More

Ok so it was oldish, confusing, understaffed, poorly located (in the big picture) and in the same breath I didn't have any "problem". The hotel is making a good effort at putting on a good face but I fear it needs a real and true overhaul. I stayed because this was the location for a conference I was attending and... More
