Not impressed
The hot tub wasn’t looking very clean and wasn’t very warm. One of the step lights was pulled completely out and dangling in the water as you stepped down. It made us nervous that some electrical could be exposed. The pool water was great but the floor around the pool was peeling and there weren’t towels by the pool. Our room was okay but the sheets were very stiff and scratchy. Beds were just okay for comfort. The toilet in our room barely flushed unless you held the handle down. It’s definitely a dated hotel. Breakfast wasn’t great. They ran out of sausage at 8am and the person doing the breakfast said the next person coming in could do sausage. The eggs were dry and rubbery. Biscuits were individually wrapped and dry. It would have been nice if they had been warmed up rather than us having to do it. We’ve paid less in a nicer tourist location for way better services and comfort. I just felt I needed to be honest. We were there to tour ISU.

Perfect night
Me and my now wife went on the night of our wedding and after a long day, we needed this night to relax. Coming to this hotel was perfect. Thank you. And the hot tub was AMAZING!

4/10 Fair

Disappointed
We were on the first floor at the end of the building near the gas station which is in the same parking lot. The drapes that would cover the window to keep light or anyone from being able to see in the room did not cover the window. We had to tie them together to make the reach. We had 2 dogs & indicated that on hotels.com. Prior to cleaning up after our dogs outside we asked where we should dispose of the waste. The desk person didn’t know & said just use any trash can outside. The bathroom had coffee stains on the wall next to the trash can & there was bar soap to wash your hands. Why not liquid soap to protect from Covid? Overall would not stay there again.
