We had the nicest time at this lovely bed and breakfast. We like B&Bs but don't get a much of a chance because of kids. Got a chance to stay here and thought it was such fun. The room was clean and soooo inviting. The bed was perfect and our hosts were gracious and attentive. Thank you

We were so impressed with our stay! Everything was so clean and welcoming. Mr Smith is a massage therapist and his services were beneficial. They were very accommodating in every way. Breakfast was marvelous.

I needed a place to stay in Iowa City fairly last minute and am so pleased I got to stay here! Beth & Mark are super friendly and interesting, the house was lovely and close to everywhere I wanted/needed to go in downtown IC and on campus. I was upstairs and my room was quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was simple... More

Our first experience at the Smiths' home was for a college visit. Beth and Mark were full of great ideas of things to do and see around Iowa City. They made us feel at home. We stayed in the upstairs front bedroom with a comfy bed, desk, and roomy closet for hanging audition clothes. They wanted to hear all about... More

Our 3-year-old and newborn were welcomed, as well as offered toys to play with. The spacious room, with private entrance, allowed us to have privacy when the baby was cranky in the evening. I especially appreciated that we were asked right away about dietary restrictions so that breakfast would contain no nuts, and was also meat-free. Everything was clean and... More

My wife and I stayed at the Smith's B&B on two occasions and we plan to return any time we visit the University of Iowa for the Summer Writing Festival Workshops. The home is beautiful and your hosts, Mark and Beth are personable, warm & charming. My wife and I like to stay in the downstairs room because it affords... More

Stayed here with our young kids. The B&B has a downstairs room with private entrance and not near other guest rooms. Perfect for families with young kids. Breakfast was good and location is great. The innkeepers were wonderful.

Friendly service despite late arrival, spacious, nicely-decorated, quiet, and comfortable room, delicious breakfast with good company....and all for less than the price of a weird-smelling breakfast-less room at one of the chains off the interstate. Smiths' is a great choice and right near downtown.

I recently stayed at Smith's B&B for four nights and had a wonderful experience. The house was warm and welcoming and Mark and Beth even more so. The breakfasts were WONDERFUL. I'm still dreaming of the homemade bread. It was in walking distance to downtown. I would stay there again in a heartbeat and would recommend it highly!
