Staff was good for the little amount of time we saw them. Room small, towels shed and the window were very dirty. Had a room with view of capital but cause the windows were so dirty could barely see it. As for breakfast not sure, there was so many people and not enough space. People standing in line waiting for... More

We stayed on the top floor (7th) and had a great view of the Iowa State Capitol from our room. My kids were amazed and just sat at the window and stared at the view. Room was great and the pool was very refreshing, however, pool area was very hot if you were not in the pool which made it... More

Our family reserved a block of rooms for our annual Family Weekend. The hotel has a large meeting room on the second floor that we also rented. This turned out to be a great facility for the 22 of us. Even though the room didn't have kitchen facilities,we had plenty of room for snacks, games, video games, movies, and stacks... More

Fresh coffee available all day and the breakfast buffet was plentiful and just what was needed First thing in the morning. Our room was spotless. Only complaint was the a/c unit was loud and cycling on and... More

We stayed here 5 days/4 nights while attending a convention in the event center. This motel is about a block walk from the entrance to the Hy-Vee center, and a little closer to the concert hall. I guess they are building a Hilton that will be attached, but for the price, this one is fine. Our king room was immaculate,... More

Stopped here for an overnighter as we drove out way back to Wisconsin. Vicki at the check in was very nice and a pleasant way to start or stay. Facility is average condition and clean. Looks as if updating has been done in areas. Our room was a king suite with a pull out sofabed. Fit our family needs well.... More

Ankle deep in bath water during my shower for four days straight after I'd asked twice to have someone take a look. Toilet took forever to flush. Housekeeping knocked and entered the room each day at 8:15AM while we were still getting ready to go to work. The property was tired and seen better days; smelled like mildew or dirty... More

My wife and daughter and I stayed there to attend the Quilt Expo. Super friendly staff and more than willing to make your stay enjoyable. Had some minor issues with the room but they were right there to correct the problems. Good condition considering the location - right next door to several high traffic exposition venues: Iowa Event Center; HyVee... More

I stayed at this hotel for a Quilt Expo as part of a group. The facility is very dated, but reasonable clean. The breakfast area seating requires some cleanup. The hotels water supply was troublesome, one day water was not available for 2 plus hours. In the morning hot water is luke warm. The staff was pleasant not overly friendly... More

Stayed at the Quality Inn and attended a concert at Wells Fargo. The rooms are only average, a bit outdated, but clean. There is a bar/restaurant on site that was packed that evening. That is the same location for breakfast. Breakfast was your typical hotel breakfast...eggs, waffles, yogurt etc. It was kept well stocked and the morning staff were friendly.... More
