I went to a concert on a Wednesday night and all the hotels around the arena were over $200, so looking around we found this hotel. The rates were very reasonable!! The rooms were a lot smaller than I was expecting. We stayed in a 2 bed room and it was much smaller than I was expecting. There was only...

First of all, I've never met a front desk guy like Sam Derr, Friendly, knowledgeable and a good conversationalist. So that was really the best part of the stay. The room was pretty small and weirdly shaped. What I mean by that was you had the basic room with the bed and TV, then like a two foot hallway that...

Cheap hotel, so don't expect much. Very friendly staff. Elevator smells and breakfast is minimal, but free. Rooms do the job and aren't gross. The location is amazing for the fairgrounds and Civic Center!

Overall a fairly nice place to stay if you're on a quick in-and-out trip and need something for an inexpensive price. Parking is easy, the bed is comfortable and the TV is nice. The room seemed kind of dusty and the hallways had garbage laying on the floors. I would not come here if you are looking to treat your...

The price was right so I didn't expect much. The hotel is NOT downtown. It's in a bad area next to the fairgrounds. The hotel lobby was small but clean. Got checked in and went to the room. Again it was small. I did a through check for bedbugs. NO bedbugs. The room was clean. The next morning we went...

We were very happy with our last hotel stop on our Florida trip with our dog and son from Minnesota. We were close to the end, tired and just needed a comfy place to rest before heading home. This hotel was the best price yet of our journey and it was clean, good for the dog and people were friendly...

I loathe to give this dump one star. So, so disgusting! Room reeked (beyond description) of dog pee. I rescue dogs and I've been in shelters that smelled better. You could see dozens of pee stains all over the filthy carpet. Had driven all night long and it was very late when we checked in otherwise would never have stayed....

Dear Choice hotels, I have to say that I have been very disappointment by the customer service that I received recently at Econo Lodge Iowa State Fair. I made my reservation on July 10th for an upcoming reservation for this weekend Friday Aug 21st and Aug 22nd via phone. At that time the customer service rep said that the hotel...

This hotel is the only hotel near the Iowa State Fairgrounds so there is no way to beat the location. However, it is a very basic hotel. Rooms are very small. Price is $110 unless it is during the State Fair when it goes up to $210 per night. This is not a hotel worth $200+. Rooms are very small,...
