The Iowa House was great! They were able to get us in last minute when our first hotel had a filthy room for us which hadn't been cleaned after the previous guest. The facility is nice, the bed was super comfortable and the location was very convenient!

The property was like converted dorm rooms. Ours had a good sized chunk out of the window frame not spackled or painted. Noise from the hallway was loud, the ice machine which was down the hall was really loud. Nobody was at the front desk when I arrived and when I went down in the early morning to get more coffee pods. On Sunday at breakfast no sandwiches, muffins, bananas or Danishes. The attendant said they ran out on Saturday.

The Iowa House Hotel is an inexpensive alternative to stay in Iowa City. It's close to downtown, but located a few blocks away from the hustle and bustle. We did have some issues figuring out breakfast, but otherwise, it was clean and we had enough space for my daughter and I. It would be a bit cramped if you were trying to put a whole family in there.
