Built at the peak of the commerce boom in Muscatine, Iowa, the Holiday Inn is a bit dated. It has not been updated much, but it was a good quality building to start with, and has been fairly well maintained. The service staff does a good job, and the rooms are above average in cleanliness. The rates are good for the area. The grounds behind the hotel a quiet, green, and there is an adjacent pond with a variety of waterfowl that makes the setting idyllic. Plenty of free parking, but you may have to carry your luggage a ways to your room. Probably the most convenient location in Muscatine to access about anything you came for.
My only complaint was noise. I am not sure how rooms are assigned, but if it is important to you to have a quiet room to sleep or work, particularly on the weekends, you better ask the desk to give you the most remote room they have open. This is a "Hollidome" type concept hotel with a central commons area with a pool. The room next to ours had a "party hardy" group of about 10 people from maybe age 5 to age 30, and they ran about and generated a cacophony until well after 1:00 a.m. At that point, a complaint from the party across the hall from them brought mangement who requested they quiet down. The door then closed, but the party inside the room continued, albeit, at a somewhat less disturbing, but still quite audible level. I am not certain if the hotel has any limits on how many people are allowed to occupy a room.
The hotel bragged about the high speed internet service. The wireless adapter was actually in my room, but after several frustrating attempts to download a small file, I gave up. It was the worst internet service in any hotel in a long time. I tried the commons area and it was worse there. Constantly disconnecting and re-connecting me.
