Long story short, they charged me for 3 nights when I only stayed one. After 5 days of trying to get a refund from them I had to call corporate to complain and try to refund my money. Myself and a few friends frequent Iowa City especially during football season and we will never be staying there again. The GM,...

We would stay here again because the rooms were nice and clean and it was close to the hospital.

The first thing I noticed was the smell. Very musty and a strong odor of old cigarette smoke. The walls had cracks. The baseboards were peeling away. The carpet was stained. And that was just the hallway to the rooms. Over all a very seedy-looking place. We had requested two double beds but were given a single and told there...

Dear guest, I am very sorry that you didnt enjoy your stay with us. Unfortunately, we have a limited amount of rooms with 2 double beds, so Im sorry if the room type you preferred was not available. We are just finishing a large remodel, and the guestroom carpets are the only thing left to do. I apologize if you...

The room was nice. But the smoke alarm chirped all night, the tub backed up during showers the toilet didnt like to flush and our in room hot tub. Took over over 3 hours to drain. When we notified the front desk their response was nothing. Not a sorry or an offer to send someone to look at it. Which...

Property is an average motel. Sign outside says "Front desk help needed". I would agree with that, as the gal at the front desk is way more interested in playing with her computer than helping people. You distract her from her computer whenever she has to deal with a customer. Also, the same gal hauls out the garbage from the...

I appreciate the feedback. At the time of your stay we were a bit short handed on staff. I am happy to say though, that we now have brought in new staff in order to provide the best guest service available. I hope you will come back in the future to see the many improvements!
