We stayed here 2 nights, August 6-7, 2016 while we enjoyed Iowa Irish Fest. The location was ideal for our needs and we needed 2 adjoining rooms. We stayed in rooms 105 & 107. The staff were pleasant at check-in and the lobby was well maintained. HUMIDITY: Although the weather was perfect- sunny, high of 79 and very low/no humidity...
