I was pleasantly surprised by our stay at the GrandStay this past weekend. The room fit our family of four (two adults, two children under 5) just perfectly. We had a separate bedroom with the children sleeping in the living area (including a pack-n-play.) We were close to our tailgating lot and to the ISU football game, so we were able to run back and forth between the hotel/tailgate/game easily. The location of the hotel: right off the interstate, attached to Old Chicago and close to the university. They do have a pool (it's definitely on the smaller side, but if your children are like mine, they love water no matter what.) The breakfast in the morning was a nice amenity as well. The service was friendly, the room was mostly clean and I'm thankful that we were able to get a room that fit our family so well the week of a home football game.
