Clean hotel, close to U of I

Posted Jun 28, 2017
Pros: Clean, quiet, comfortable. The breakfast was really good.
Location: The hotel is close to The University of Iowa and all of the things the university has to offer including the downtown shopping experience.
The room was clean. The bed was very comfortable. I liked the pillows. I got a good nights sleep. We were close to The University of Iowa where we were attending first year student orientation.

Family Graduation

Posted May 31, 2017
Pros: Clean and quiet
Cons: More interesting items on breakfast bar.
In Iowa City for a family graduation. We had a bad experience with another hotel in town last year when we were here for a wedding. So I wasn't expecting much. I was happily surprised. The staff was nice, the room was comfortable, and there were no noisy upstairs people. The noise level was really nice. Breakfast was pretty normal for hotels. I didn't use the pool or workout room, but they looked nice. I recommend this one. In fact, if I come to Iowa City again, I will be choosing this one.

Funeral in Kalona

Posted May 26, 2017
Pros: Cleanliness, comfort, large bathroom.
Cons: The coffee pot, et. al., should NOT be in the bathroom.
Our stay was perfect . . . as it should be. We needed a comfortable place to stay overnight to attend a funeral 5 1/2 hours from home. The Hampton Inn/University Iowa City fit the bill nicely.

Had a quick overnight here. There were plenty of food options within walking distance from the hotel. The place was very easy to get to and was very clean.

Hotel Near Univ. of Iowa Campus

Posted May 8, 2017
Pros: Recently redecorated, nice breakfast area. Our room (king with pull out coach, handicapped) was very large and comfortable.
Location: Village Inn restaurant is across the parking lot; food is very good. Close to campus but you will need a car since you can't walk to downtown.
Nice hotel near Univ. of Iowa campus. Room was very comfortable and large. Hotel has a beautiful breakfast area and a large pool and hot tub, Staff was friendly and we loved the fact you could purchase food and beverage items from the pantry. The hotel looked to be recently renovated and we enjoyed our stay.
