This motel is in a very convenient location right off of the interstate and next to several fuel stations and restaurants. Check in was a breeze and the clerk was very nice. The room was easy to get to and had a nice fresh smell when I entered. I really liked it because it had lots of light and a... More

This place was one of the cheaper hotels in town bookable on the internet. The bad thing was the rooms, with a VERY CHEAP FEEL to them. Parking was difficult due to the snow piles. There were a number of shady characters that were hanging out in the parking lot and talking loudly, despite the cold temperatures the night we... More

It is what it is. Cheap room. Stiff bed, small tv, no clock or alarm. But, what do you expect anymore for 40 bucks. The location is great and so I would recommend it to any one just looking for a room for the night.

Yes, it was homecoming weekend in Iowa City. This meant that it was impossible to find a decent hotel room. If you are in a similar situation, then you may find yourself at the Motel 6 in Coralville. I believe the first review of the motel by "Heshan M" says it all. There were at least 5 people staying in... More

The staff was VERY nice. My room just had the carpet shampooed earlier in the day. The bed had ripped sheets - no biggy for 39.99 a night it was perfect after a day of traveling.

I stayed at this hotel for a night while I was passing through Iowa and had no problems. It was easy to find and there are many fast food and regular restaurants on the same street. The check-in staff was super friendly. Wireless Internet is available for $2.99 for 24 hours. The room was small and older, but clean. Definitely... More

This is what you'd expect. The place is old, the room could barely fit two beds, the heater only worked on high and made the room a sweatbox, the shower was actually pretty good, though. It was cheap and I definitely got what I paid for! There were two brand new hotels right next door (I forgot the names, though)... More

We stopped here on our way west and only needed a place to sleep. The room was quite small. The 2 double beds were shoved against the wall, one right next to a loud air conditioner. The room was clean.No breakfast, so pack pop-tarts. We got there in time to swim and the pool was pretty nice. Don't really have... More
