Stayed for a convention, sharing room with 3 friends. Beds in our room were just double. Room had good features of microwave, fridge and coffee maker as well as iron and blow dryer. Hot breakfast was good and staffed by a very sweet woman who was there every day of our stay. Did not use pool or exercise room. Rooms... More

We stayed on a Friday night and it was very noisy. There were several ball teams there so we approached the front desk about moving to the end of the hall. They were awesome and upgraded us to a suite for no charge. The staff in the restaurant downstairs were also great and very accommodating. One complaint was that the... More

We stayed on the 5th floor right next to the stairs. In the morning I was just going to run down to the 2nd floor for coffee. So, in my pj's I took the stairs and surprise! there is no re-entry. At first I was not sure how I was going to get out. I had to go all the... More

Granted, I had to book last minute for a convention downtown, so rates were probably higher than normal. However, the hotel for the price was very average. The breakfast was decent with cooked eggs/meat/waffles, diy oatmeal, a couple types of fruit, yogurt, a few pastries and standard continental fare. However the breakfast room was so small, I had to stand... More

This is a centrally located downtown hotel. The rooms are OK. But they do book large groups here (like high school wrestlers) and that could get rowdy. I was there on a sunday night and the place was very quiet. My room on the 7th floor overlooked the river and the state capital. Very nice indeed. The breakfast is standard.... More

Our volleyball team stayed here for a tournament. My room smelled a bit of old smoke, probably used to be a smoking room back in the day. But the bed was super comfy and the shower was nice. My room even had a leather like recliner. The free breakfast was outstanding! I've stayed at many hotels that advertise a free... More

Clean, great location and fairly easy to find. The staff was friendly, breakfast with hot and cold items was good. It has a restaurant, exercise room and nice pool available. We would stay there again if we were in the area for an event.

We went to an Iowa Wild Game on Valentines Day and this was a very short walk to Wells Fargo Arena. Our hotel room was nice and comfortable. The reason I did not give a 4 or 5 is that the elevators are slow and small and the chairs in the breakfast area look like they have never been cleaned.

We attended the Girls' State Basketball Tournament which is usually a high-priced hotel stay but got the room here very reasonably. Melissa checked us in and out - very courteous and welcoing. The room was great. Although there were lots of young people staying there as well, the hotel was quiet. There aren't a lot of bells and whistles, but... More

It is right next to the Wells Fargo Arena and the Veterans Memorial Auditorium. Clean rooms, indoor pool, exercise room, lounge, clean bathrooms. Friendly people. Very nice breakfast, that is better than most. Right near the Interstate.
