Hotel was a great place to stay, very accessible off highway. Room was great. The morning desk staff/breakfast crew was nonexistent . At 6:30 am, no regular coffee, last of the creamer, knives, and plates. Floor was very sticky. No one at the desk, had to ring for assistance.

Dear Pat H.

Thank you for taking the time to submit this review. Feedback from our guest is crucial to our success. I would like to offer my sincere apologies for the inconvenience you experienced during breakfast. I will pass your comments on to the breakfast and front desk staff so this can be immediately corrected.

I hope we get the pleasure of serving you again if your travels bring you back this way so we can make it up to you. Again, my sincere apologies.

The manager was nonexistent. Staff was not trained properly on how to charge credit cards. Was charged incorrectly multiple times. Then three months after my stay they charged my card again. What a nightmare!!! Would never recommend staying at this hotel or trusting them with your credit card information

Stayed here after being away for many years due to job relocation. Booked a room with my wife as we were meeting family members here for Iowa State wrestling tournament. We use to stay here with our team several years ago, and was still very impressed with the staff, amenities and the continental breakfast! Will certainly book here again in the future!

Room Tip: Not many rooms available as it only has two floors, but that's why we like it!

Love this hotel and will be back with my team. The hotel does an great job in all areas. I travel SO much and I wanted to share my repeated positive experience I had at this hotel. It's clean, great breakfast, pool area is great. But the people who work their make the difference! Interested in our team and willing to help in all areas. Just great customer service which is lacking at many other hotels. A team or family will enjoy their stay at this hotel.

Hotel was very clean and gives you a warm feeling on arrival. Staff was very friendly. Stayed in the hot tub suite and everything was great except for the handles for hot and cold were switched but that is very minor compared to the experience I had. Well worth the money and would recommend anyone here.
