We were there for a hockey tournament on the ISU campus. The hotel was convenient and easy to find. It was comfortable and the staff were helpful. The breakfast was pleasant and since it was a snowy weekend, it was nice not to leave the hotel for the morning meal. We will stay here again if in the area.

I stay in Hilton hotels often and this is a perfectly fine hotel. Nothing fancy, but clean. The staff was quick and friendly at check-in. Good location close to 30 and 35. A couple of complaints. 1) Placing your cabinet between the desk and TV makes it nearly impossible to watch TV while getting some work done. 2) It's 2014, upgrade to high definition please.

Arrived on Chistmas Eve, late, and the staff was terrific even though i'm sure there were many other places they would rather be! They welcomed us there and thanked us for our loyalty to the Hilton brand. The room was clean and comfortable. Crazy to say in the middle of winter but the room was almost too warm... All in all it was a great experience!

Great Hotel. Breakfast was not so good when we got to breakfast hall they where out of some of the items. The eggs seem like powder eggs and the jucie was awful. Overall it was a good stay and we will stay at the hotel again.

Broken light fixtures, Worn out furniture, lumpy uncomfortable bed. The WI FI hardley worked and I ended up using the WI FI off my cell phone. Should be a $40.00 a night dump not a Hampton Inn. Staff was friendly the breakfast was great, but the rest is a no go.
