If you can stand bad smells, no security on entry #1 (permanently broken) filthy rooms, filthy bed sheets , no guess use of a computer, unfriendly desk help, and a sparse breakfast...this is the place for you. Spend a few bucks more and have a comfortable night...this is NOT the place to stay.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else !!!

Booked this LQ for the convenience of being right off the freeway. Rooms were okay and could use some major updating and cleaning, bathrooms are VERY small, breakfast was good however I would expect more out of LQ. I would choose a different place to stay. Watch your credit card charges. Since you need a credit card to reserve a room and then you pay when you leave with a different credit card you need to watch and make sure you are not charged twice. I called and spoke with the management and they said that they would reverse the charge but did not. I had to resolve this double charge with my credit card company. I would not stay here again, stay somewhere else. The rooms are not worth this much money, very disappointed.

Located right off US55 the location was convenient for my needs.
My room was quite clean and well equipped.
It was quiet and comfortable.
There was nothing for breakfast that I could eat (for personal reasons) but it looked nice. I always pack my own food and thought I would have to ice it overnight, but the little fridge in the room was an unexpected and most welcome surprise bonus.
I thought it was great value for the money and would stay there again if I were in this area.

We stayed here for two nights, and our bill was for less than one night at the Holiday Inn Express, which was nice. Very clean, decent new carpet and good furnishings. Bed was very comfortable, bathroom small but clean and worked extremely well. Plenty of channels on tv but we did not watch it as too busy. Cracker Barrel next door and an easy walk. Staff were friendly and helpful, the clientele also well behaved and friendly even though they rode motor bikes! Breakfast more limited than at other LQ hotels, no yogurt or eggs, but everything fresh and clean, with fresh fruit, cereals, and baked goods. If you want a classy breakfast, Cracker Barrel is very inexpensive. Right next to highway but very quiet in spite of being busy. A very nice comfortable stay, and pleasant to save some money.

Excellent experience. I went there during my son's orientation at ISU. The hotel location is a lovely easy drive from campus. The only drawback to my stay was that the fitness machines were not working. All else was excellent.

Worst hotel and staff that I have ever stayed in. First night we stayed my husband mentioned that we were disappointed in the breakfast. (No yogurt, hard boiled eggs, stale cereal). The receptionist didn't seem to care or write down anything. Stayed there a week later breakfast hadn't improved.
However, the biggest problem was with the security. Main door to our rooms didn't lock at all and the side door to our room was held open with a stone stuck in the doorway. I doubt that the overall security at this location is adequate. If you want a better room that has better staffing go to any of the hotels on the west side of this highway.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.
