The condition of this hotel at the price they wanted was ridiculous. They wanted over $127 for the first night of our stay, granted it was a Saturday with an Iowa football home game, but we weren't there for the game.
For that price you would expect the hotel to at least be clean and have things in working order, but that was not the case. It's funny that someone said in a review from 2009 that the hot tub was broken, because it was broken again during our stay (which was Labor Day weekend, you would think they would be ready for the travelers). The hot tub was down the first night and by the second night the hot tub and pool were both down.
The hallways and common areas were very dirty and never appeared to be vacuumed while we were there. Housekeeping also never did come to change our room; we had to call down for more towels since we threw them on the floor expecting the room to be cleaned. When we first got to our room the peephole was missing and wadded up paper was just stuck inside.
Also, we stayed on the second floor and there is no elevator. This was okay for me and my husband, but my mom is handicapped. She wasn't with us on this trip, but I could see how that would be a problem going forward if you arrive and they don't have any more rooms on the first floor. I always request a handicapped room with we travel, but they don't always read the requests, so I would be careful about that if you are traveling with and need handicapped access.
Also, the breakfast was very plain, some of the Comfort Inns will have bacon or eggs, and this was just your very basic breakfast with only waffles for a hot option.
Overall, I didn't feel unsafe or anything, but the hotel was just very dumpy and dirty. With the added problem of the broken hot tub I would just stay elsewhere on my next trip to the area. They are plenty of hotels in Iowa City/Coralville to choose from.
