    Lack of Detail

    We had to change rooms three times before we finally got a clean one. First one had dirt clumps in the bathroom and on the carpet. The second room did not have the beds made. Finally the third one was clean and had a view of the river. Not sure why they did not give a view room first, especially since the hotel was less than 25% occupancy. You would think that would be the first place you would send guest if possible. Will not stay there again.

    The continental breakfast was delicious, especially our first morning there. The shower was spacious and always had hot water and good pressure. Room for improvement in three areas: 1. There was apparently no seal on the shower so water got all over the floor. Barring that little hiccup it was the most comfortable hotel shower I've ever had. Also, please look into adding exhaust fans to the bathrooms. 2. Not a big deal, but one of the two TVs in the room would not turn on. The lady at the front desk offered to help fix it, but as I mentioned we had one working TV with channels and streaming options I had not expected. 3. The tiny refrigerator was missing a leg and the microwave was far too small for what I expected. Regardless of all these little nitpicks, I would stay there again. Staff was very friendly, room was quite spacious, and the overall stay was pleasant.

    We were attending events at HyVee Hall and Wells Fargo so was super close to where we were going. Easy to get to off interstate. The bar/lobby area was very large and easy to gather with a big group.

    Great hotel, Great Location

    Very nice hotel with large rooms. We stayed in a 2-queen suite and the room was very spacious and could easily have others join us for socializing. There isn’t a pool at this hotel, I just assumed there was since it is newer, but it really worked out for the best because we were there for kids wrestling and the convenience of being across from Wells Fargo far outweighed not having a pool!
