“The place to stay when we need to stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

We stayed here as an overnight stop on a trip from home to St. Louis. We have stayed here in the past and have always had a great experience, this time was no exception. The front desk agents are all pleasant and efficient, the breakfast is wonderful and the hotel is clean, quiet and comfortable. We did not use the pool but it looks nice and they provide pool toys for kids to use. The exercise room is a bit cramped, with 2 treadmills and a bike, as well as some dumbbells, but it was nice. This hotel appears to be brand new, and has a great location near I-80 and near a large shopping mall with lot's of restaurants and shopping in the area. The rooms were big and comfortable, EXTREMELY clean! The one negative thing, that the hotel has no control over, is there are railroad tracks nearby and the trains blew horns a couple of times a night the past 2 times we were there. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a great place to stay in Coralville.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the side of the hotel where the railroad tracks are.

Seemed like a brand new hotel. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was great. I don't write a lot of reviews but we had left item behind that had great sentimental value and the staff was outstanding in getting it returned to us promptly and I was very grateful.

I appreciate you taking the time to write a review of our property. I am glad you enjoyed our complimentary, hot breakfast. Our 8 person hot tub is usually sufficient size for our guests and I apologize it was a bit small for your group.

I do hope we can have another opportunity to have you as our guest in the future.

On the way home for Christmas I used my Holiday Inn points to get a free room, which I feared would be the worst room in the place. Instead, I was delighted to find that we were given a "welcome bag" by the pleasant staff and upgraded to a larger room (quite spacious!) which was well appointed, impeccably clean, included mini-kitchen, lovely bathroom, sitting area and very nice complimentary breakfast. The hotel is just adjacent to the mall, which includes a skating rink that the kids enjoyed, and several (chain) restaurants. We will stay here again on our way through that area!

This is an exceptional hotel. Great service, clean property and rooms, better than average complimentary breakfast, Free beverages from 5-7 weekdays as well. I've stayed on a few occasions, and on my last stay, the staff upgraded my room to a whirlpool suite for no additional charge. I will continue to choose this hotel over others whenever I am in the Iowa City area.

Great hotel with a great staff. I have stayed here several times. Always a fast check in and the snack and water are great. Located right by the mall and many restaurants. If you stay on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, they have a Manager's reception in the lobby. Great finger foods and drinks (soda, beer and wine).
