Good place to stay, not all H.I.E. rate as high . The people were friendly and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The location worked for us since we were visiting family in Iowa City.
If you stay longer than one night, don't be shy, they do not always re-supply everything the second and third day. I think it was the Coralville H.I.E. that did not supply lotion in the room, they keep it at the front desk.
The train did not bother us. It reminded us of where we used to live.

Room Tip: If you don't like the sound of a train, you may want to ask for a room away from the tracks.

I am so pleased to hear that our hotel met your expectations. We pride ourselves on our cleanliness and service, and it is encouraging to recieve such pleasant comments from our guests. Holiday Inn no longer requires lotion to be in the rooms anymore, but we like to keep it available at the desk as many frequent guests like our signature cinnamon smell :) Thank you for your comments, and we look forward to having you as our guest again soon.

Sincerely,
Amanda Turner
Assistant General Manager

The room was very spacious, clean, and well-appointed. The breakfast had lots of choices. It did need someone there to oversee it, however. The omelets would have been delicious if they had not been cold. The apple juice machine wasn't working correctly and it was more like colored water.

My son and I stayed here during a college visit to the Univ of Iowa. The location is great, right next to the Mall and many restaurants. It was an easy drive to the Univ from here. Breakfast here was excellent!

We stayed here as an overnight stop on a trip from home to St. Louis. We have stayed here in the past and have always had a great experience, this time was no exception. The front desk agents are all pleasant and efficient, the breakfast is wonderful and the hotel is clean, quiet and comfortable. We did not use the pool but it looks nice and they provide pool toys for kids to use. The exercise room is a bit cramped, with 2 treadmills and a bike, as well as some dumbbells, but it was nice. This hotel appears to be brand new, and has a great location near I-80 and near a large shopping mall with lot's of restaurants and shopping in the area. The rooms were big and comfortable, EXTREMELY clean! The one negative thing, that the hotel has no control over, is there are railroad tracks nearby and the trains blew horns a couple of times a night the past 2 times we were there. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a great place to stay in Coralville.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the side of the hotel where the railroad tracks are.

Seemed like a brand new hotel. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was great. I don't write a lot of reviews but we had left item behind that had great sentimental value and the staff was outstanding in getting it returned to us promptly and I was very grateful.
