Stayed here for a family wedding. Older hotel that had been recently remodeled. Comfortable, affordable and staff was nice. Close to everything. Lots of restaurants and shopping. The only complaint......low water pressure, however , I found this problem throughout the state of Iowa.

breakfast was a treat, check-in was easy, everyone was nice, and the room was comfy and quiet, and the $3 meals in the lounge are a real steal. The hotel is different from any other I've stayed in, and it was close to everything. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, and I will be staying again. If I...

For the traveler who uses the gym, restaurant, and pool, this place is excellent. Older hotel so you wouldn't know it from the outside. They are remodeling to freshen up the look inside. Biggest gym at a hotel I've stayed at, as a 5 day/month traveler. Restaurant had very wide variety menu. Good location to freeway and easy access to...

very dated, pictures online looked great, deceiving! Musty rooms, didn't even turn on air the first night because of the smell. Cleaned the filter in my sink and it was better. Lumpy pillows and bad breakfast and coffee. We had a tiny bathroom with bad lighting and bad water pressure, although a friend said here bathroom was a walk-in shower(no...

We always have a great time here and pleasant stay. The food in the hotel is very good; it is also close to many other restaurant options. There is shopping in the area as well. The whole family loves the pool & hot tub as well as the gaming area.

The room was nice and clean, bathroom was clean as well. Terrible water pressure in the shower though, but that is not unusual in hotels anymore. Beds were very comfortable and the free breakfast was pretty good too. The location was not ideal and the hotel was very difficult to find as it was hidden behind a strip mall.

I have had the pleasure to stay at the Longbranch 3-4 times over the last 3 years. The Service has always been exceptional! There is a restaurant/bar on premises that has specials during the week like taco bar on Wednesdays (awesome) and wings on Thursdays. The pool was heated-and I mean it was warm enough to swim in!

This is an old motel they are updating to keep current and doing a good job on it. Good staff in both the motel and the restaurant. Comfortable and reasonable in price. It seems there is a 200 minimum character count to use this...I hope I'm there!

Stayed here two nights on Labor Day weekend. The property is unusual in terms of it's physical layout, but the rooms are very nice at a fair price. Clean, comfortable beds, and a good complimentary breakfast. We did not use their restaurant/dining room, but heard complimentary things about it. Definitely would recommend this hotel to anyone in the area.
