My wife and I spent two nights at the University Hampton Inn location in Iowa City while visiting friends for a wedding. The hotel has recently been renovated and has a fresh look with outstanding amenities. The pool and fitness center are a great place to unwind and the location of the facility is easy walking to several other local... More

The experience that I had at this hotel was horrible. The wireless internet was out most of my stay. I traveled for work and could not get any work done there. The staff was rude, and snarky with a terrible attitude. They could care less about numerous problems that arose there. The front desk was empty most of the time!... More

I personally have never stayed at a Hilton property and had any issues. I'm the type of guest that keeps to themselves and doesn't have any complaints, but this Hampton hands down has some of the most rude employees I've ever had to deal with. Not only were the employees wearing yoga pants instead of dress pants, but the GM... More

Overall this is a high quality Hotel. Everything seems to be very new and up to par. Love the close proximity to University of Iowa (a little over a mile). Very nice pool area. Only negative was the window curtains do not close and are for decoration only... would have been nice to close it for better sleep. Also, when... More

We appreciate the notice on this matter and will make certain it does not become an... More

We were only here for an over night on our way from Florida to Minnesota. We were exhausted when we pulled in. The night clerk, James was helpful and understanding. The room was clean & quiet. My partner stated that she wished we could stay longer. Beautiful, clean & quiet rooms, better than average breakfast. Everything was first rate.

We stayed overnight on a Friday night. The staff was so nice. Our room was small for 2 adults and 3 children. The king sized bed and pillows were so comfortable. The breakfast was ok. The health room was the best I've seen in a while. The equipment was top notch and there was several pieces of equipment. If this... More

We stayed for two nights on business. Proximity to the university was good. Parking on site was plenty. Complimentary breakfast was quite comprehensive and convenient. Rooms were decent and all amenities worked satisfactorily. Rooms were clean and smelt fine. "All non-smoking hotel", was fantastic .

More expensive overnight at this Hampton Inn than others we have stayed at this week (St. Louis, MO & KC, MO). Unfortunately, the experience here was underwhelming. No one was at the reception when we arrived (around 4:00pm). No one was there when we came down for breakfast at 6:00am either. This behavior is unlike our experience at Hampton Inns... More

I do not know what date you stayed and therefore have no explanation in regards to the missing team members in each of the areas you described. I... More
