We were extremely upset with our experience at the Buena Vista Inn & Suites. We had a suite reserved and called the hotel around 3:00pm to tell them that we would be arriving later in the day, but that we were coming. The woman's response was "It's no problem, as long as you get here before midnight." We did get... More

Today I seen charges on my debit card. I then called the hotel and got a very rude male on the phone. He gave me attitude... More

Checked in this motel about an hour ago. The pool looks ok but there is NO whirlpool, NO sauna (unless that was the door with a padlock on it), no coffee maker in the room, no book in room that says wecome, where vending is, etc. Not even a phone book! Haven't found fitness room if there is one. Asked... More

Initial day the pool area was closed-when asked reason the clerk only answered by saying it would reopen tomorrow at noon. Room had no number. Bathroon fan didn't function but you could see it functioned at one time based on the amount of grime in the fan housing. Room repairs were poorly done with screw holes un patched, etc. Water...

There was no hot water in the shower. Staff acted like we didn't know how to turn on the faucet. The manager asked us, "Is the problem that you want boiling hot water?" My reply, "No, I just don't want to take cold showers!" Finally, they checked the room next door, and it didn't have hot water either so we... More

ROOM: light over bathroom sink was burnt out. Some items in the room looked as though they'd never been dusted. Bathroom smelled a bit mildewed & the bathroom door wouldn't close properly as the door stuck/scraped the tile. POOL: looked nice, but apparently locked up & not usable BREAKFAST: dirty kitchen area. Stale bread. Out of quite a few of... More

This hotel is a bit confusing, as there are three motels within two blocks that have very similar names. You have the Buena Vista Inn, the Budget Vista Inn and the Budget Inn. This review is for the Buena Vista Suites and Inn. I do field service work for the government and travel throughout Iowa. The beds were comfortable, room... More

The two beds are clean and soft. Our room, 210 is away from the street and is very quiet. The lobby is nice and includes the breakfast area. The hotel clerk is efficient. Free is good, WIFI, parking, coffee available at front desk, and breakfast. Parking lot is well lit. The room appears to be updated recently. Bathroom is clean... More
