Average hotel. Clean room but lots of wear and tear. Nice to have the back door into the patio area when traveling with a dog. Staff was very nice. Standard breakfast selections. Adequate hotel for passing through town.

Nice clean hotel. Fresh made cookies at check in. Most helpful friendly staff ever. Even sent someone up twice to help us run our remote twice because we couldn't figure it out. Nice continental breakfast in the morning. Really feel welcome.

Friendly staff, helpful caring and plenty of stuff to do around the area. Pool was very warm and relaxing to be in. Some places it is to cold. Breakfast was excellent and was just the right temp. The lady in the Breakfast room was very friendly and willing to help or get what anyone needed.

Hi, We went to Iowa for a visit & stayed overnight. This was a nice, clean, friendly hotel. Our son is a fan of Buddy Holly. At the lobby, they have a framed front page newspaper clipping of the plane crash from 1959. There is a Bennigan's Restaurant next door. Our room was clean & neat. The beds & pillows... More

The people were all friendly and helpful. A great place and super location. Nice place for Class Reunions. The guest rooms clean and comfortable. The food was excellent. The exercise room needs a few more items.

The hotel itself smells, the layout is weird (we had to walk through a dark, narrow, low-ceilinged tunnel to get to a tiny closet-like foyer where stairs (no elevator) led us to the third floor. It was a terrible place. However, Bennigan's Restaurant... More
