Fairfield, Iowa
Reviewed 9 January 2016

My one night stay at Travelodge was okay. It's near downtown and the cheapest I could find. Worth the price with complimentary breakfast. Just don't forget to bring your own toothpaste and mouthwash as they don't have it in the room.

The staff was very nice but the hotel needs a good cleaning. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. We all had back aches the next day and barely slept. The breakfast was ok, glad they had waffles! We did like the bar next door, the bartender was great. Sorry but please do some updating and severe cleaning.

About 8 minutes from downtown Iowa City. When your in a college town all you need in a clean room and short cab ride for a great weekend. The hotel staff was very friendly, the rooms are outdated, but we were not looking for luxury on this trip. It definitely served its purpose and we will definitely be back!

Travelodge, so my expectations were not set too high... The room was dated, poorly lit entrance, shower head support hung upside down so the head would not stay positioned, and the room was not all that clean. All the aforementioned was livable, however when I could not get HBO to work with my remote, I called the front desk and...

I urge you to look elsewhere if you want to sleep. I called to complain at 1:20 a m. Floor badly needed to be washed. Hard to find anything positive to say.

Concluding a nine day stay at the Travelodge. First thing I noticed was the updated look in the lobby area. The only thing that hadn't changed was the smiling face of manager Melanie and her staff. Always there to assist or welcome you in the morning when you stumble down for that first cup of coffee. Breakfast room also received...
