It was late and we did not want to drive on to the Quad Cities. Days Inn had been okay in the past so stopped. The outside did not look too good but the lobby was clean and the desk clerk was nice. The bedroom with a king size bed was affordable and had a flat screen TV with Direct... More

I'm surprised that it is part of the days inn chain - I've always had relatively nice rooms with them and nice services. We pulled in late looking for a room - rate was $60 for the night. Beds were comfortable enough but that is where the good part ends. The hotel is under renovation - so there is dust... More

This is a bare bones budget motel, but you will be surprised at how nice the rrooms are. The king bed was really comfortable and I slept well. Shower was good with plsnty of hot water. Wifi signal was adequate but not full strength. TV was a Zenith tube-type, with a sparse selection of stations & the picture on some... More

I have stayed here several times. Stop at an Iowa rest area for a coupon book and get a single for $40 including tax. Parking for truck & trailer. Quiet and clean room. Nice shower. Cable w/ HBO and wifi. Coffee in the morning. Best value along I-80 between Davenport and Des Moines.

This place was so awful. First room and halls dirty. Dark dank hallways doors with key locks and scratched and damaged doors. Fire sector hanging from ceiling cables for tv hanging out of Walls mold and bad tiles in shower and something nasty on toilet seat. No one at front desk to help or complain to. So bad we even...

Sorry, there's just no other way to describe this hotel except "dumpy". My "non-smoking" room reeked of old cigarette smoke, so much so that everything in my suitcase had to be washed when I got home. The AC/heater/fan was no help, as it was very loud and delivered only stale musty air at any temperature. The bathroom was grotty, the... More

In order for one to fully appreciate my experience at the Presidential Inn, you have to understand that I literally slid off the I-80 Exit 254 into this place as I ended up getting caught in a snow/ice storm at the beginning of the year. I had tried earlier to get off on a previous exit but my SUV does... More

I stayed for one night last year when all of the rooms in Iowa City were booked for an event. I would not stay there again. The motel was as far from "presidential" as you can get. It was very dated and lacked many of the basics that you expect in even a moderate to lower-end motel. It did appear... More
