Nice employees

We came to town for the iowa game, location was great and the cleanliness was above average! Better than this one we are checking out of today in Cedar Rapids.

They double charged me and now I have a strike on my credit because of their mistake. Worse yet, even though they admitted it was their fault they charged me, they had me go through Orbitz for the refund.

Quiet place after a long drive. Nice grounds. Easy walking to several decent restaurants. Only regret is the pool was not available throughout the stay. Grandchildren got one swim early.

Easy access and location. Room was very clean. Great bed and huge TV.

Excellent!!! Check in was a breeze, great room, very clean. Highly recommended!

I realize we stayed here over the Thanksgiving holiday but after four nights our room was never vacuumed and the sink and counters in the bathroom were never cleaned. We also left an empty pop can on the nightstand on the first night , where it remained for the duration of our stay. Tjis made me wonder about the cleanliness of the entire hotel. (Do they actually change the sheets between guests?) Will not return.

Friendly staff. Clean room and very comfortable.loved the free cookie and breakfast in the morning

Cleanliness and quiet. Friendliness of staff great room

It is located in a nice area with several eateries and the university close by. Hotel personnel were friendly and efficient, and the room was clean.

The entire staff was super friendly. The hotel rooms including the hallways and common areas were clean. Breakfast was decent.

Everyone was very nice and helpful. Always had fresh coffee!!!!

Visited U of I.... i don’t want to add more. I’m doing you a favor. This is super annoying that i still have to add or it won’t accept my review. Next time i won’t bother.

Very nice hotel. Friendly staff and great breakfast. Big rooms and comfortable beds.

The staff was friendly and happy to help with anything we needed. I will stay again!
