“Good experience”
Reviewed March 4, 2006

Very nice hotel. Not sure how old it is, but it appeared fairly new. Very clean, good beds, lots of lights in the room. Everything at the hotel worked well, ice machine, elevator, etc. Well kept property. Right off the interstate and only about 10 min. away from campus. The girls at the front desk could stand to work on their people skills a bit. Not rude, just very stoic as I was checked in and out. A smile or two wouldn't hurt.

I booked a last minute room the night before the Iowa vs. Iowa State game. I was afraid there wouldn't be any rooms left in town, but they had a wonderful room at a great price. The room was big, clean and welcoming. The bathroom was huge, well stocked and spotless. I'd definately stay here again.
