We were part of a large team staying in this hotel to attend the AAU Junior Olympics. The hotel is a block from the convention center. The staff members I encountered were friendly and helpful; from the group at the front desk who made useful recommendations, handled check in and check out efficiently for a huge group, and managed our...

Quality Inn & Suites is well situated on the river, with views of the state capitol. The hotel shows some wear, although there are some upgrades (e.g., new shower unit), and service was friendly and helpful. Breakfast (in the hotel restaurant space) is self-serve and includes the usual array of juice, coffee, toast, waffles, yogurt, and such, served on styrofoam... More

I had higher hopes for my stay here, and were it not for the friendly staff I might have given it a lower rating. In general, nothing really stands out in terms or the rooms (mine was not really clean), the amenities (sub-standard fitness room), or the food (the hot breakfast was certainly not a healthy one). I cannot recommend... More

We were very pleased with this Quality Inn. Over the years, we have had issues with several of them, but we are sensing a significant change for the better, and based on this one, we will try others. The room was very spacious; we were able to move around without tripping over ourselves. There was a comfortable arm chair for... More

The staff were very nice, friendly, and knowledgeable of the area. The location is close to everything you need downtown and the rooms are of average size for a family of four. The two drawbacks that I have are that when we checked into our room we immediately started itching as if we had invaded a mosquito convention. After spraying... More

Wonderful stay. We came to stay here while going to see Joel Osteen next door at the Wells Fargo Center. Talk about convenient. We were able to park at the hotel and walk there within 5 mins. I was concerned about others parking at the hotel for this event, but they checked each vehicle that came in making sure that... More

Front desk people were excellent! The room was reasonably clean with a few unvacuumed very small pieces of garbage between the night table and the bed. When I tried to open the desk drawer to see if there was stationary in there, it fell apart on me. Buffet breakfast was complimentary and was tasty, but the serving roll-up metal scrambled... More

Hotel has a great asset...its location. Which in turn lead me to great restaurants..Hotel was a little under lockdown with the Cher concert but parking was there because of lockdown...I had a room end of the hall on the 5th floor, it was clean, modern and comfortable and on a concert night quiet. Price was higher because of concert but... More

I stayed here during a business trip. Usually I tend to stay in the outskirts rather than deep in the heart of the city - but I really liked this location! There was a view of the river from my window and it wasn't as noisy as some of the other downtown areas I have been to. Right after I... More

We stayed here for four nights while playing in State Pool Tournament over at Hy Vee Center. This is the closest and in walking distance to the Hy Vee Center and Wells Fargo Arena. The other Downtown hotels were far enough that most folks used the shuttle busses to go back and fourth. This hotel packs a lot of value... More
