Overall my experience was ok. It was a good deal for a college student needing to spend a week there and didn't have too much money to spend

Pros -
1. Location- close to Iowa State, highways, and stores (Walmart, Target)
2. walking distance to many restaurants.
3. Probably cheaper than other hotels/motels in the area.
4. Area seems to be safe.

Cons -
1. musty smell upon entering and in hallways.
2. bathrooms and room need to be cleaner. Do not appear to be cleaned thoroughly on a regular basis.
3. Limited parking
4. Lots of street noise if you get a room facing the street.
5. Room and bathroom is very small. Probably ok for 1-2 people but not 4.
6. Breakfast was ok - cereal, muffins, toast, yogurt, egg omelette (pre made and refrigerated), coffee, juice. breakfast area is small.
7. Owner/manager should be a little more friendly/customer oriented.

I wish I would of spent little extra and stayed at the competition. They did charge my card two days before arrival, that has never happened to me before. I normally read reviews before I decide on a hotel. Wish I would of this time. The halls smell very heavy of cigarette smoke and need vacuumed or better yet carpet replaced. Thank heavens the room did not smell of smoke. Also agree with a previous post the pillows are lumpy. The window locks did not work, but we were on the 2nd floor so not a big deal. There was left over food in the fridge from previous occupant and the corners of the bathroom floor looked like they haven't been cleaned in a very long time. Most hotels have plastic liners for the ice bucket and the cups are also plastic sealed not this location. I had to scrub out the ice bucket and we travel with commuter cups so we used those. The Continental breakfast was fine, the counters were clean and tables OK but the floor was sticky when you walk. Next time I will read all the reviews.
