We stayed here for one night on our way through Iowa. We found the hotel through the hotel coupon booklet at the Iowa Welcome centre. As soon as we told the front desk we had the coupon, he told us the price on the coupon right away (about $20 less than their regular price).
From the outside, the hotel looks like a conference centre which it is, but not a welcoming looking hotel. But once inside, it's a different story. Very impressive.
We were given a first floor room off the pool with a table and chairs just outside our door, which we absolutely loved. We took advantage of the pool and tub spa and then sat at our table to have a couple of drinks. Very relaxing. At first, we had the pool to ourselves but then a few families showed up with screaming kids so we worried a little about the noise when we were ready for bed. But, by 11pm, all was quiet and we slept well.
The room was a little worn but very clean which is more important to us. We had a king bed which was extremely comfortable. Free wifi and a great breakfast that was included.
This hotel was a great find for us and another one we would have passed by if not for the hotel coupon booklet.
Would definitely stay there again. In fact, we didn't really want to leave, we wished we could have spent a couple more nights there.
