8.6.Fabulous.
  • 6.0.Good

    The hotel is recently remodeled so everything is clean and fresh. The decor is quirky - but the location of the hotel makes up for difference of taste in decorating - the rooms are good for size but there is so much "stuff" and busy decor the tend to feel a bit claustrophobic. Sometimes less is more! The walls are a bit thin and the air conditioners were not part of the remodel so are noisy but work fine. The beds, pillows, linens and towels are fantastic. The restaurant menu is limited and the coffee shop was unavailable when I stayed. I had a 20.00 coupon to use for each day and could not find anything I wanted to use it for! I have stayed here for three weeks - mostly because of location - price of Iowa City lodging is ridiculously expensive - of the downtown choices this hotel was least expensive - not unhappy with my stay - value for dollar = 3.5 out of 5

    Loved the vibe there. Super fun motel. Once we got to the room, it was nice. The motel is within walking distance from food and entertainment. The staff was awesome and helpful.

    Awesome and pet friendly.

    It was great. Awesome to find a pet-friendly hotel in Iowa City, especially with no weight or breed restrictions. If you have a big dog like we do, stay at The Graduate.

    Great location, still new hotel

    Very nice place and a perfect local for the annual July jazz fest in Iowa City. Unfortunately, breakfast remains a Covid casualty and the lack of room refrigerators in the heat was a minus. But the parking was free and accessible and the place was well maintained and new.

    Great downtown property!

    The hotel is situated in the heart of the downtown, right on the pedestrian mall. Easy walking distance to many great bars and restaurants. The hotel is very nice and our suite was great, with a wonderful view of the city.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    The hotel staff was very nice. The room was nice but parking is extra and at a facility next to the building that is supposed to be manned at all times. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case and I ended up paying to leave. The staff took a bit to understand my issue but ultimately did not double charge for the day I paid at the parking garage.
