My roommate believes there is mold in the room somewhere. She had a horrible cough, sinus issues and a rash. We had a cricket or a spider in our room every day. The lobby is updated but the rooms aren't. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.

We had stayed here in the past and had enjoyed the hotel. The beds are comfortable and the air conditioning unit is efficient and easy to use. I liked that a fan could be ran continuously. The breakfast was good. We found the hotel to be quiet. The hot water at breakfast had a coffee taste to it. My concerns...

Hello! I just wanted to reach out and thank you for both your review and for letting us know your concern about the exit door being propped open. Since I share in that concern, I am certain to relay a little reminder to our staff as I know our guest safety is a number one priority for them as well....

Very friendly front desk staff, extremely helpful we were there for Iowa state college tour. Room was clean, kids enjoyed the pool. Breakfast was the only disappointment. Eggs were gritty, not many choices. Other than that I would definitely stay here again

We moved our daughter to ISU and stayed for three days at this establishment. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were nice, they could have been cleaned a little better(and I'm not a picky person) but overall it is a nice place to stay and at a great price. We were very satisfied and would recommend to others. We...
