Restaurant is undergoing a renovation so they gave us coupons to help ease the inconvenience. Front desk was very nice. Weird bathtub where they had put a plastic shell over the tub so... More

Just a tad run down. The room was very musty and we had to move rooms. Good location to downtown and restaurants. Staff was very friendly. The bar/restaurant was undergoing construction and the grounds were not very well kept.

Loved the location. Room was clean and comfortable. Always nice to have a fridge and microwave. We like to try local restaurants and always have leftovers. Hotel restaurant was being renovated... So not available, but the front desk gave us coupons to help "ease" the transition. Despite the hot tub that was closed for maintainance and the ice machine on... More

This hotel has it all! The staff in the bar were VERY helpful, the food was great, the front desk staff were easy to work with as well. We used the shuttle van once and it was such a nice experience compared to taking a taxi. Walking distance to the Diamond Jo and the Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium, I... More

Fox News is showing round the clock in all the public spaces at this hotel. In the lobby, near the restaurant etc. Very scary! Being confronted with this all the time is rather bad news. It can't be good for anyone intending to have a peaceful stay.

Overall this was a good place to stay but the smell just bugged me. It's like they are trying to cover up a stale smokey smell. Hotel is a bit outdated. Staff was VERY friendly. Room was clean and comfortable.

The hotel is older and could use some updating. Our room was large, clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable. However, the room had a very weird smell. Almost like it previously had a bad odor and they were trying to cover it up with a heavy deodorizer. It wasn't enough to make us change rooms but it's worth noting.... More
