The room was dirty. The pool was under maintenance and wasn't informed when we booked the hotel. No continental breakfast.

This hotel has the potential to be great, but it was spoiled by COVID-19. The pool was closed and absolutely no breakfast was served. The room was clean and the location was fine. I was ultimately disappointed that I stayed in two other hotels the days prior to this stay, which both served a breakfast and had the pool open.

Next door cooking all spices smell in the floor and room.

Check in person was not very friendly. Had to wait five minutes to have someone come to the counter. She said I must have not rang the bell hard enough. Rooms are comfy and clean. Had dinner at Chili’s. Just a quick one night stay. Went to Panera for breakfast, the hotel offerings were slim.

We recently stayed at Mainstay Suites and accidentally left behind a $70 childrens toy. We called immediately upon realizing it was missing not even 24hrs later. Front desk confirmed that the toy was there but they "threw it away". I got 3 different stories. The 1st was it was accidentally thrown away, the 2nd was it was thrown away because they thought it was trash, and the final one was "it was in this exact spot so we threw it away assuming it was trash". For a hotel booked out, to remember the exact location of something you deem trash? I doubt it. I tried to get management to call me, they refused. The front desk agent was not pleasing at all about it this and shrugged it off. I even heard him talking with management when he didn't mute the call saying he tried saying sorry, but again they refused to call me. At the end of the day, I feel as though a staff member stole this item then now that it's trying to be recovered less than 24hrs after a guest stay is trying to say that it was accidentally thrown away. No offers to compensate for the item were given even after they admitted to their mistake. Lesson? Do NOT stay in Mainstay if you as a parent could accidentally forget a toy worth any value (or anything worth anything for that matter0

This hotel offers an EXCELLENT value for the price. Does it offer all of the amenities of the other hotels around it FOR $30 MORE - no, but well worth the trade-offs. No lotions in the bathroom, the hotel may be a few years older, but it was clean, VERY quite (on a SATURDAY!), and typical breakfast offerings.

Room is nice and pretty big. Kitchen is updated and bathroom is good sized. For the price, I'd stay here again.

This place was a dump! I made the mistake of trying to save some money and it was a bad mistake.

The hotel was fine for the money. Neat double room with bedroom seperate from the living room, as well as a kitchen. [...]

Stayed in CR to visit my Grandma who is 90 yrs old. Upon arrival, the temp was cold and the room heat was stuck on AC? A service person corrected it.

My stay at the MainStay Suites in Cedar Rapids was a very good one. Upon arriving and checking in, we spent some time in the pool and hottub before heading out for a nightcap. The staff was very helpful in recommending a place to go and we had a fantastic time there. The rooms were very clean and it was very quiet there. Location could not have been better as we were in the area for homecoming at the University of Iowa and I-380 was just down the road. I would like to compliment the extremely friendly staff for helping make our stay a very pleasant one....and the Hawkeyes beat Michigan to complete the weekend. Sorry Michigan fans!

We would like to apologize for your check in experience. I will have a talk with my Front Desk staff to ensure that this will not happen again.

I have tried to contact you numerous times regarding the items that were left in the room, so they can be mailed back to you. Please contact the hotel and we will be more than happy to mail your items back to you.
