We stayed here for two nights for a race at Iowa Speedway. The location was great - very easy on/off and close only 15-20 minutes from the track. However, it is located right next to a truck stop and the first night there were a lot of semis parked in the parking area. The hotel actually has two buildings with rooms. We luckily stayed in the same building as checkin. When we arrived their key card system was down and we were not able to get keys to our room. We were told that the manager would be in at 10:00 that night to fix the system. When leaving the next morning we had to ask for our key cards. The breakfast was below average - we skipped it the next morning. The hotel and room decor has been updated. The bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows. During our stay there was rarely any one at the front desk - and the front doors were open even though we arrived after 11:00 one of the nights. The rate for the room was reasonable however. I will look for another hotel for next year but if there are no other options we will stay again.
