First room we had smelled absolutely terrible. Smelled like mold and mildew. We were switched to another room and we found someones food that had been left in the freezer. First room's bedspread was stained. Hotel just seemed very outdated.

The top blanket and sheets had stains. I didn't realize I booked a smoking room, which I wasn't aware Iowa allowed smoking in hotels. We couldn't get a non smoking room.

.Lobby reeked of smoke. One guy at check in on Sunday eve. Said it wasn't usually this busy. Full of apologies and excuses. Stairways and hall not vacuumed well. Front glass door always with hand prints. New beds with nice pillow tops. Good.

We stopped here to get off the highway during a downpour on Aug 10, 2016. Outside looked nice. Upon entering the 2nd floor, the hallways was stifling hot, no AC at all. The room looked nice, but smelled musty, moldy and could have been a smoking room as well. The room smelled worse turning the AC on which was a... More
