Our first time staying at a Travelodge. We had hoped for a good experience at a reasonable rate, but the bed didn't have enough covers, the water from the faucet in the bathroom leaked, the stool tipped forward when you sat on it and the pool was super hot one day, then ice cold the next. Needless to say, our... More

The jacuzzi was dirty with dirt and little wood chips. They only have 1 person on duty so they had to call me back since they were too busy. There was a burnt iron mark on the floor. The bathtub was dirty with dirt and left over soap residue. The cable was set up so you couldn't just look through... More

My one night stay at Travelodge was okay. It's near downtown and the cheapest I could find. Worth the price with complimentary breakfast. Just don't forget to bring your own toothpaste and mouthwash as they don't have it in the room.

The staff was very nice but the hotel needs a good cleaning. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. We all had back aches the next day and barely slept. The breakfast was ok, glad they had waffles! We did like the bar next door, the bartender was great. Sorry but please do some updating and severe cleaning.

About 8 minutes from downtown Iowa City. When your in a college town all you need in a clean room and short cab ride for a great weekend. The hotel staff was very friendly, the rooms are outdated, but we were not looking for luxury on this trip. It definitely served its purpose and we will definitely be back!

Travelodge, so my expectations were not set too high... The room was dated, poorly lit entrance, shower head support hung upside down so the head would not stay positioned, and the room was not all that clean. All the aforementioned was livable, however when I could not get HBO to work with my remote, I called the front desk and... More

I urge you to look elsewhere if you want to sleep. I called to complain at 1:20 a m. Floor badly needed to be washed. Hard to find anything positive to say.
