Trip to Ohio

Posted Jun 26, 2014
Pros: East on/off of interstate.
Cons: Staff needs to be dressed in more appropriate clothing.
Location: Restaurant close by, that did deliver.
Refrigerator ran a lot. Water pressure was low. Was able to get a lower level floor, as forgot to request when made reservation, so glad about that.

Pros: Price
Cons: Normal updates.
Location: We went to the Maquoketa Caves after our stay. It is also right across from the I80 truck stop.
Needed a place between the Ames area and Chicago to stay one night with kids so they could swim. Nice hotel for the price. The pool was small, but the kids didn't seem to mind.

OK for in expensive short overnight.

We stayed here once before, about a year ago, and they were in the process of repairing many things then. Plus pool was closed for repairs. This time pool was open and some repairs seem to have been made. The hotel was clean and staff very friendly. We had the same room as a year ago (hanicapped room). I was disappointed that the bathroom facet was still broken and bedding had holes in it. We also noticed that the breakfast served was much less than before. If your looking for a high carb breakfast it's doable. Fortunately for me there is a fast food place next door or a nice trucks top restaurant that serves protein and fresh fruit. For a quick overnight stay that is in expensive and close to highway it's ok. We'll probably stop again. I just hope they fix the facet and get bedding that does have holes in it. Also having at least one option for breakfast that is diabetic friendly would be nice.

Don't stay here

Pros: Expedia
This motel is run-down and a dump. Price is cheap but you get what you pay for.

Cheap, but you get what you pay for...

The IN DOOR pool is closed for the winter season, they do not post this on their website, so all the children were excited and they ended up bored for the night.. The free breakfast is nice more variety than I expected, there was NO hot water at all. The beds were a bit over used, and the windows looked like they had been blacked out then all the paint had been scraped off.

The office staff was difficult. The room did not smell good. Heater didn't work well. Shower had hair in it from previous traveler.

Satisfactory for overnight stay

Posted Oct 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
Our stay was short, so it was okay, but I expected better. Our toilet didn't flush properly, the shower curtain rod was loose on one end, there was nothing in the room that indicated hotel information such as check out time, hours for breakfast, or for the pool, etc. The room seemed clean, although the carpet in the hallways had stains. Our room was large enough for a recliner/side chair, but it didn't have one. The whole place seemed like it needed some restoration.

I was disappointed, as the staff claimed that I had reserved a smoking room. I showed them that I did not. Very noisy place.

Felt dirty and uncomfortable. For us safety was a concern but turned out ok. For a non smoking room we sure did have a lot of smoke smell coming into our room all night long.
