Other reviewers have given this a pretty fair assessment generally. This is a bit worn around the edges, but keep in mind it is right in the middle of the campus in the Iowa Memorial Union. For the money, it is good value.
The room was clean and decent sized. The bathroom a little small with little counter space. A mirror in the room itself would have made it more practical for two in the room.
It was clean with a large flat-screen TV with cable, free wi-fi, free parking and free continental breakfast. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The setting, on the edge of the Iowa River, is lovely.
Two issues: The room's air conditioning kept it too cold no matter the setting (I finally solved this by putting suitcase on top of wall-mounted vents) and the sign on the front is missing some letters (not a good first impression).
When we were there, there was no food available in the building or nearby except for breakfast and vending machines. Downtown is just a couple short blocks (uphill) away.
