Not so cool..................

Cons: Teach your staff 101 basics of customer service.
No air conditioning in 100 degree heat. Notified front desk of problem at 8:30 pm. No maintenance on duty, no extra rooms available and no fan available. Attitude of desk clerk was "your problem not mine". When told there were no rooms available I attempted to book a room on line and it showed availability. We woke up to an 80 degree room. The next morning the front desk apologized and said we should have been given a new room. She would call us with a possible adjustment on bill but we have heard nothing from Mainstay to date.

Pros: We like that they have a nice pool kept at a reasonable temperature in the winter, so the kids can play.
Cons: I'd love it if they would add a hot tub.
Location: There are plenty of restaurants and cultural attractions, as well as a big mall and other shopping available.
We like to stay at this hotel every time we need a hotel in Cedar Rapids for a family event. It was very nice this time - quiet and pleasant.

Pros: Close to the mall and to where my daughter lives.
Cons: Shampooing the carpets.
Location: The mall.
The room was ok. The carpet was dirty. They replaced some of the tiles and they didn't match. Over all it was ok. I would stay here again. The staff was very nice.

Location: Easy to get to.
We stayed 5 days, and it was great. The housekeeper came in every other day without us asking. The breakfast was very good. It was quiet. Would definitely stay here again.

Pet friendly accommodations that were much better than average. Pet surcharge fee was too high, but lower room price helped to compensate. Breakfast offerings were just average. Convenient location, too.
