This is an okay motel with decent rooms but one big negative: paper thin walls.

The location gives you easy access to I-80. However the motel is way out on the northeast corner of Iowa City. That means if you have any business involving making a trip to downtown Iowa City or the University campus it’s good 8 to 10 minute drive there.

The lobby is nice and the staff was friendly. They have a computer with high-speed internet for guest use. (I think there also might be Wi-Fi since I saw a few routers in the hallways.)

It’s a two-story motel with indoor corridors. Some second floor rooms have a balcony. I did not notice an elevator anywhere.

Rooms are decorated in the usual late 80’s motif with forest green and pink as accent colors.

TVs have with over 80 channels of cable in case you’re stuck in your room.

Bathrooms are clean and the shower heads are good height with decent water pressure.

Walls are paper thin. We could hear everything the neighbors said and did. Every phone ring, discussion, baby crying, sneeze etc. could be heard. With no effort I could tell what TV shows they were watching. I’m sure they also heard and said everything we did.

If you’re traveling on I-80 and you need a cheap place to stay for a night and could sleep through any noise: this motel would be a good choice. However if you’re visiting friends or family in town (or at the university): go elsewhere.

Stayed there for an overnight weekend trip to visit our old stomping grounds at U of Iowa. Decided to stay here despite the distant location from the campus because it was considerably cheaper then a downtown hotel. Well you get what you pay for. Rude front desk, paper thin walls and dirty room and worst of all dirty bed sheets - had to ask management for a new set of sheets and my husband and I changed them! Its worth the extra $ to stay in a clean hotel in the downtown.
