If you love going back to the 1980s and living a Miami vice lifestyle this Iowa hotel is for you. This facility replicates a no update attitude with carefully preserved artifacts from its former holiday inn glory days. The facility is oddly light with no parking lot lights or overhang lights. The toilet flushes 24/7 and it's been worn with... More

I do not recommend staying here. Our bathroom was filthy, the bath faucet was pushed into to the wall, the wallpaper was pealing, the ceiling stained, the curtains were stained and the couch was dirty. On top of it all, the pool heater was broke so the water was freezing, leaving us to try and entertain our child in a... More

Another fun trip to Iowa! Thanks for the great room. The outside design of the building kinda threw us off a little, but the room was beautiful! Very clean, big, comfortable and decorated nicely.

We use to love this hotel and continue to hope for something better. They've updated linens which is nice. The breakfast was mediocre. We had dogs with us and they made no effort to clean the room, which honestly we were okay with because we had prepaid rate through a booking site for three days which we were pleased with.... More

It is so sad to see what is happening to this hotel! It has such potential to be a great place but it seems that the corporate Clarion just intends to run it into the ground!!!!

this hotel used to be fun, entertaining and clean. what the heck happened? the pool area used to be a blast around new years. the bar was always small but entertaining. the banquet room was fun for receptions etc and that fell apart. this absolutely shows poor management decisions.

This property shows former elegance. It is still in excellent physical shape. A large entry into a beautiful atrium complete with pool, hot tub and bar sitting area.
