  • 2.0.Poor

    Terrible customer service and management

    This hotel does not have its own parking. You have to park in the ramp across the street, while this isn’t much of an inconvenience, the hotel does not give you any type of voucher for parking and it is rated at $1 per hour. We checked into the room and the toilet seat was broken. We called down to the front desk and they said they would send maintenance to our room. 45 minutes passed and then the maintenance guy shows up, and just enters the room, no knocking. Takes one look and says he doesn’t have the part and has to go buy one. We were told the hotel had a shuttle service and were there to attend the Iowa State Fair. We were then told that the shuttle would only take us to the bus station and then we would have to pay for the bus to get across town to the fair. After requesting the shuttle, we were then told that the shuttle wasn’t there so we would have to walk. Upon returning to the hotel after the fair, the toilet seat had been replaced but not for the better. It wasn’t even tightened down properly and upon sitting on it, almost fell into the toilet itself. We called down to the front desk again and they were very dismissive, we requested that a note be left for the manager for the next morning. When checking out, we raised concern about our unsatisfactory stay and again the desk staff was very dismissive with only replying “ you’re receipt will be emailed to you, have a nice day” all in all the only thing this place had going for it was that the bed was comfortable.

    The room was super nice and clean but the tv didn't work. Previous room occupants unplugged it. The desk person helped get it running. The bed was comfy but made squeaking noises when you moved around. Toilet made a loud squealing sound after flushing. Overall clean and nice
