“Decent hotel, good price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013

Three family members stayed at the Coralville Super 8 for 5 nights while another family member had surgery at UIHC. The hotel was reasonable for the price and we wanted to be as economical as possible & still have a decent place to stay! It is nothing fancy, but what we expected in a Super 8. The only negative I would report is regarding the breakfast. I agree with other reviews that they need some protein. I understand not having hot food, but some peanut butter & hard boiled eggs would be easy & greatly appreciated! The greater issue for us was the lack of attention the breakfast area got. There wasn't an attendant, the front desk staff was also covering the breakfast area which was down some stairs & out of sight. The milk pitcher was empty on multiple occassions, one day no orange juice, daily ran out of wheat bread, another day out of waffle mix & the staff told me, "she didn't know where they put it." We thought that was an interesting comment as we saw her there everyday & thought she should know where breakfast items were stored. Anyway the food & selection (waffles, 2 cereals, bread for toast, yogurt, apples & oranges, pre-packaged cinnamon rolls, instant oatmeal packets, apple & orange juices, coffee, tea, & hot chocolate) was ok, but the lack of restocking, wiping tables & counters just general upkeep of the area during the busy breakfast time was a turn off. The HUGE plus for this hotel was their 24 hour shuttle service to the hospital. They don't keep their own vehicle or staff, but they will call a cab for you anytime, day or night. It was WONDERFUL! Very prompt and we could come & go as we needed & didn't have to pay for parking or hassle with driving in unfamiliar places! We can't say enough about that! Also want to mention Dan & Ricky both at the front desk, provided OUTSTANDING customer service!! Thanks to them! Whitney at the front desk was never very friendly and when ever asked a question seemed like we were bothering her. Hopefully that is not usual for her. Overall we would recommend this hotel & would stay here again if we needed an economical, but clean & decent place to stay in the Iowa City/Coralville area.

We stayed in Coralville Ia. When we got there to check in the gentleman who checked us in was very nice. Our room was clean and Very cold, just the way we like it. Wished had more to choose from for breakfast. But overall our stay was very nice. Will stay again when in that town.

It is not fancy. The bed was comfortable. the price was decent. getting out was a bit difficult due to the street being busy and no stop light. the staff was super friendly. no frills. no exercise equipment or the like but if you are in town for a game or passing through, this place will do the trick nicely.
