Pros: easy to find
Cons: a complete update would be nice
I had the heat/a/c unit on low and it kicked on every 45 minutes and sounded like an aircraft was taking off in my room. In the shower I noted that where the shower stall stopped and the wall covering began there was a line of mold starting. The clothes rack on the wall was too close to the bed. When I went down that side of the bed to set the alarm clock I hit my head on it going in and then coming out. The pillows were too small for the size of bed.

Staff was very pleasant however cleaning staff could use additional training on how to clean. Chairs in room stained- would not sit on them. Bed coverlet also stained. Heat/AC loud. Not an expensive hotel but if they updated and really cleaned the rooms with more care, they could charge more money.

The hotel was ok. The bathroom needed cleaning and there was mold in the shower. The carpet was torn in several spots and the furniture was dirty and ripped with burn marks. The staff was very nice.

Good for the Price

This is definitely a Super 8, everything is pretty average. With that said, as long as you know what your paying for, you should be happy. The room was recently renovated and was pretty nice given the price, it was clean and comfortable, made for a good one night stay.

A mistake

Posted Feb 7, 2015
Pros: Convenient to the hospital for my next morning appointment.
Cons: Fix equipment.
Location: Convenient to I-35 and IA highway 30.
Computer was inoperable at check-in, so done manually. TV set went blank (shut down an hour or so after check-in). Desk clerk said nothing he could do about it. The heater in the room cycled on-off all night long as window leaked cold air (it was a cold, below zero night). Bath room was fine.
