This property is old and is undergoing a face lift and a change to Comfort Inn. If you are going to an event at the Wells Fargo Event Center it is worth the stay and is in walking distance to some good restaurants and Bars. Like I said it is under construction and after a night on the town to...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 8 July 2016

We stayed here 5 days/4 nights while attending a convention in the event center. This motel is about a block walk from the entrance to the Hy-Vee center, and a little closer to the concert hall. I guess they are building a Hilton that will be attached, but for the price, this one is fine. Our king room was immaculate,...

Stayed here as it is near Hy Vee Hall, Choice Credit and Veterans Memorial Auditorium. Was a little concerned because the Boys State Basketball Tournament was at the same time that the hotel would be noisey. It was not! They have done very nice updating to the hotel, rooms and lobby. My room was excellent with a good view of...

The room was clean, had a great view of the river, and easy access to arena and convention center (with FREE parking). Breakfast could have been better. Property is being renovated but was not much of a hinderance. Front desk staff was very helpful.

Beware of a 2 1/2 chain hotel that makes you pay for your room 30 days out with no ability to cancel!!!! There is a reason. We stayed here before in the past with no problems. Not the case this time. We went down to the lounge/bar for dinner and found out it is closed. When we asked the front...

We chose this hotel for its proximity to the Wells Fargo Center for attending a concert. It is less than a block from Wells Fargo and an easy walk. Security checked to make sure any vehicles coming into the parking lot had reservations when pulling in before an event such as this, so we had no trouble with parking. Check...

Stayed here twice. Hotel is under renovation but didn't have any tangible impact on my stay. Functional, clean rooms. Heat can be tricky to control but it definitely won't be too cold. Only one treadmill, bike and elliptical in exercise room, but good equipment. Breakfast is a bit beyond basic and a good number of options, good seating.

We have stayed here before and enjoyed it. It was handy it had a lounge that served food and drinks. It is close to Wells Fargo Arena. This stay was not at all welcoming. We did not know they were doing renovations on the hotel. Did not know their lounge area was closed. Very small area for breakfast, especially when...

We stayed at this hotel because it was near a wedding we were attending. There was a large event at the stadium near by and we feel sure the price was more because of all the people attending the basketball games. We had to wait for our room to be ready which is understandable on a busy weekend. The hotel...
