This is the first time we stayed at this hotel. The room was clean and a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The bed was comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was very good and had lots of choices. The bathroom was small but adequate. I wish, though, the shower -tub would have had grab bars or similar supports. The entire enclosure was...

Hello Louisa, Thank you for taking the time to complete a review of our hotel. I want to apologize about the bathtub/shower not meeting your expectations. The only rooms in the hotel with grab bars in the shower are our ADA rooms, so I apologize for that.. I'm glad to hear the rest of your stay was a positive one...

Jordan, Zack, Alyssa and the whole staff ensured I had a flawless stay, start to finish. They are all experienced, friendly and eager to serve. The breakfast that has been added since the brand change to MainStay Suites is marvelous! The rooms are wonderful and the rates incredible. You can't go wrong staying at this property!!

I enjoyed one night at this property on a Saturday evening in a room with one King bed. The room was clean and had a stovetop, large refrigerator/freezer, microwave, and efficient heating/cooling/fan system. There were plenty of TV channels to choose from and the lobby had a computer station for checking e.mail etc. The real highlight of my stay was...

Just traveling thru town and this was my 1st stay at this hotel and read no reviews, so wasn't quite sure what to expect.

Hotwire listed this hotel as a two and a half star....oddly enough. This was a excellent hotel with a great staff......a solid three star hotel maybe more. The beds were comfortable and clean. It's also in a great location right off of I/80. I would highly recommend!

Jordan L, General Manager at Mainstay Suites, responded to this review

Hello Anthony, Thanks for the kind words and taking the time to leave them in your review! I want to clarify that the "star" system that hotels get is mutually exclusive from its rating, or review score. We're in this interesting zone between the efficiency and value of a two-star and the service quality and amenities of a three-star. Regardless...

I've been travelling for work consistently for the past week with a new hotel each night. This hotel is what I wish every location was like. Alyssa at check-in was friendly and very helpful.

We stayed here after attending a Iowa wrestling meet. Though it is designed for longer stays, we had a nice stay. As suites go, the room was small. It looks like it could use some simple maintenance.
