The rooms are clean...breakfast is good...staff is very friendly and courteous...you get what you pay for with the room...nice but not a 5 star for sure...but it is only 1 notch below and definitely a good bang for your buck. I have family in Cedar Rapids and we stay here when we come to visit. The pool serves our purpose...

Came into town to visit family and friends. Had my kids so I'm a little picky on the cleanliness, but I must say it was definitely clean. Staff was also friendly. Location is a plus! Close to resturants and mall. Will definitely stay again!

Stayed here during Christmas vacation. The room was extra spacious with a full kitchen, which made our trip more easy. We also loved the indoor heated pool and breakfast. Our room had just been renovated with new carpet, paint, and tiles throughout! See you guys in April!

Stayed here for 3 weeks and will be back soon for 2 months. I called them directly and got an even better deal off best advertised price. Very conveniently located with everything you need nearby. Bed was comfortable and room quiet. Kitchen included the basic implements and dinner ware. Hotel is being "spruced up", room was recently painted, outside painting...

air conditioner was not working in the room, stains on the carpet and chairs, also, they charged us additional $25 for each pet, although, nothing about additional charges was on the reservation; they said they will not charge, but they did anyway; not a good experience

Is in a good location on the NE side of town, quiet hotel with very nice employees.Suite room is quite snug but very clean. One concern we had was the sheets felt like they had sand in them...hope it was sand..as we literally swept out the sheets late in the night.

Staff is friendly. Rooms are ok nothing great. If you have someone sleeping on sofa bed maybe a bit uncomfortable. Pool is ok it's not super warm in pool area in fact pretty cold only swam for 20 mins with kids before they were ready to go. Breakfast is usually a rotation of eggs and sausage or bacon, and biscuits...

When I arrived on11/3 at this location to check in on a confirmed reservation made through Choice Hotels for a single room, 2 adults, I was told that only handicap accessable rooms were available. The desk clerk (eschar) blamed the mix up on Choice Hotels and was totally uncooperative in resolving the issue. Her solution was "cancel my reservation and...

James- I am very sorry for the inconvenience regarding your stay. As I stated when you were checking in that the room that was booked was a handicap room. At no time was this changed prior to your arrival. I would have been more than happy to relocate you to another room type but we were full except for smoking...
