Lots of renovations going on. Water was turned off for two hours but was done at a time that would be less disruptive to convention-goers. Breakfast was very good with a good selection to choose from. Our room was clean and comfortable. There was a microwave and small fridge, heated pool and exercise room. Free wifi. It is walking distance... More

Just spent the past weekend (9/9 - 9/11) at this location for an event hosted by a local club. I really enjoyed myself! The suite we stayed in was clean, comfortable and well taken care of. The bed was comfy! The shower was clean and the amenities that I used were just fine. The staff are what made this weekend... More

Lots of renovation going on. No plugs for chargers. Lamp on desk and wall socket inoperable. Small but clean rooms. Non opening windows. Extremely small elevators. We could barely get a luggage cart and both of us in there. Breakfast is fair.

Staff was good for the little amount of time we saw them. Room small, towels shed and the window were very dirty. Had a room with view of capital but cause the windows were so dirty could barely see it. As for breakfast not sure, there was so many people and not enough space. People standing in line waiting for... More

We stayed on the top floor (7th) and had a great view of the Iowa State Capitol from our room. My kids were amazed and just sat at the window and stared at the view. Room was great and the pool was very refreshing, however, pool area was very hot if you were not in the pool which made it... More

Our family reserved a block of rooms for our annual Family Weekend. The hotel has a large meeting room on the second floor that we also rented. This turned out to be a great facility for the 22 of us. Even though the room didn't have kitchen facilities,we had plenty of room for snacks, games, video games, movies, and stacks... More

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,... More

Stopped here for an overnighter as we drove out way back to Wisconsin. Vicki at the check in was very nice and a pleasant way to start or stay. Facility is average condition and clean.

Ankle deep in bath water during my shower for four days straight after I'd asked twice to have someone take a look. Toilet took forever to flush. Housekeeping knocked and entered the room each day at 8:15AM while we were still getting ready to go to work. The property was tired and seen better days; smelled like mildew or dirty... More
