I always try to stay here while in Waterloo. Always clean, always quiet, always reasonably priced. The front desk staff is polite and to the point. Guest laundry is free and there is a mall plus several restaurants within walking distance.

Room was clean and comfortable until I went to bed. The sheets were worn and had little fabric pearls down the middle of the bed. A little uncomfortable but I got a good night sleep. Bed was not a soft as I'm used too. I also noticed the towels were stained when I unfolded them. Nice towels but need replacement....

So we wanted to see something at the Englert theater in Iowa City, that particular act was something I've wanted to do for years!

This was a last minute stop while on business in the NE Iowa area. Bed was comfortable and it was quiet. The price was a bit less than other hotels in the area as well. Looks like it would be nice for a long term stay as the rooms all have kitchenettes.

We were in town for one evening and my husband booked this hotel. For the price, I didn't expect it to be as great as it was! The hotel staff was friendly and smiling. The rooms were very clean, and the bathroom was larger than we expected. The bed was super comfy and the hotel as a whole was quiet....

The rates are very reasonable. They are conveniently located by a mall, many restaurants, a casino and two highways. The rooms are very clean and the staff is very helpful with the area. Would definitely stay again.

Spent the night at this hotel while visiting Northern Iowa University. It was exactly what I needed. Peace, comfort and quiet. The room was clean and fully equipped. If I'm ever in the area again, I will definitely stop here again. Nice selection of restaurants in the area as well.
