Quality Inn at Collins Road
Ranked #24 of 36 Hotels in Cedar Rapids
Reviewed 12 August 2014

We have stayed in this hotel before, and it was much improved from the last time. The room was clean and looked like it had been recently redecorated. The bed and all the furnishings in our room seemed almost new. The breakfast was good and it looked like that part of the hotel also had been redecorated. One negative item: The hotel is a two-story building and there is no elevator. Also the location is both a positive and a negative: The hotel is on a small lot in a commercial area with the wall of a newer commercial building right behind the hotel; but the hotel is close to everything in northeast Cedar Rapids. The parking lot in front of the hotel is small, but that really isn't a problem because the overflow parking is just across a side street and that is where all the larger vehicles are asked to park. Bottom line: It is a very good hotel for the rates charged.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing east (the front side of the building). Your view is a blank wall from the wind...

I have stayed here several times in last year or so and found it to always be quiet even when full of guests. The breakfast is good and is well stocked. The parking lot is small but there is an overflow area. A nice place to stay if you require north Cedar Rapids for lodging.

Stayed: April 2014, travelled with friends

I know it is small, but they give a hand decorated goody bag to choice privileges members.

Welcoming staff, nice breakfast. Had one issue with hairs on the blanket. they replaced it immediately with one fresh out of the dryer/ In general, they could upgrade the bedding to the white duvets instead of the yellow bedspreads. The sheets were clean as well as the rest of the room. No refrigerator, but Ice was on the second floor.

This is probably a second or third generation owner facility, but obviously showed a lot of care and maintenance. The building was well maintained, clean and cared for. The hallway carpet was nearly new and it was obvious that hallway lighting had been recently upgraded. The beds were great. Location was excellent and easily accessible from anywhere in town with out the noise or traffic volume of a city the size of Cedar Rapids. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful by directing us to a local family restaurant. The only down side was the lack of an elevator to the second floor. If you want to avoid the stairs, put in your reservations early. The breakfast was the usual Comfort Inn fare but the room was spacious and well maintained. We would gladly stay there again.

We stay here often when visiting family in Cedar Rapids. The breakfast used to be served in the lobby and was limited, but a new breakfast room has been added with hot items including waffles, scrambled eggs and biscuits/gravy, along with cereal choices. The rooms are large with a comfortable sitting area. The hotel is not easily accessible from 380, but is nearby numerous restaurants and shopping and is less costly than other hotels in the area. Worth searching it out.

I read the comments on the Choice Hotels site and they were raving good for the most part so I thought I would give it a shot. Parking is awful so you if your room is on the North side of the hotel overflow parking is on the South end. I was not greeted as Choice Privileges member when I arrived and I did not give that much thought until I saw another guest get a welcome bag. The thing that stuck out to me immediately was the amount of spray deodorizers in the hallways and room. I would spray at regular intervals so the room smelled like a hospital. Breakfast was good, and the location is great. But I will probably try another place on my next visit to Cedar Rapids.

I am sorry our Hotel did not meet your expectations, Our Parking is limited in the front of the Building and due to the expansion of Rockwell Collins next door, our over flow parking was adjusted to the side parking lot. We pride ourselves on recognizing all guests as Choice Privilege Members and Since we failed on that I will review with the staff members on the importance of this. We do not use room deodorizers in the rooms, however we do use them in the hallways to help maintain the freshness of air in the hallways, I will direct this to the housekeeping department to make sure these are set on the lowest setting as not to overwhelm guests. Thank you for reviewing our Hotel and allowing me to use this feedback to better educate our staff.

Stayed here for a College visit at COE College. This hotel is in an odd location, (slightly industrial) and does not hold much curb appeal. However, we were quite surprised at the updated decor in the lobby and Breakfast room. For the price, it was not a bad choice. The rooms were quiet and comfortable and I like that the vanity is separate from the toilet area. Discovered that there are MANY places to eat and even a small decent little mall just down the road. My son spent the night at the college and I had no problem entertaining myself. There was even a couple theaters nearby. I felt safe in the area.

Room Tip: The rooms in the rear face an industrial building, opt for a parking lot view. Still lousy, but bett...
