“Dirty, mildew filled rooms”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2008

I stayed at this hotel in July 2008. While the lobby looks nice, the rooms are dirty and smell of mildew. When I arrived at my room there was mens hair on the bathroom sink and used soap still in the shower. The room smelled absolutely awful. I highly recommend seeking accommodations elsewhere if you have a choice.

Great hotel stay. Friendly staff. Free drink and food from 5 to 7 every night. Free breakfast in the morning. Comfortable beds. Nice pool and hot tub. Great for traveling with children. No restaurants nearby, but great food can be delivered in. Would stay here anytime.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel September 2nd.
The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly.
The airconditoning didn't work very good. When we turned it on it would stay on for about 5 minutes and then shut off almost like it was on a governor. One more small problem, the bottom sheet on the bed kept coming off. They must of had the wrong size for the size of the bed. Other than those problems we did get rest.
No nearby restaurants other than the A & W and a convenient store.

  • Liked — close to airport
  • Disliked — the sheet that kept coming off and the airconditioning problem
  • Stayed September 2007, traveled as a couple

OK. Located south of Cedar Rapids, it's very close to the airport and virtually no nearby restaurant choices, save 1 McDonalds. Rooms have a 1970's feel (glasses, now plastic wrapped in plastic wrap). Lighting was marginal and bath consist of industrial 1-piece tub/shower. Bedding was comfortable though materials substandard. All in all the room has a commercial feel. Room to room noise was a problem due to thin walls (I carry earplugs for just such problems). Checkin was quick and friendly. Internet access is free, but dreadfully slow. This is my 2nd stay at a Country Inn chain and they all have this similar decor and build quality. I'm avoiding this chain in the future, for a few bucks more I'd opt for a Marriott Courtyard.

Nice hotel. Very friendly staff. The rooms are spacious and warm. Can't go wrong with free beer, wine, and snacks during the manager's reception. Breakfast is basic, but nice. Can't get more convenient to the airport.
