“This one needs better management.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

We have stayed here as a family in order to go to the World Pork Expo held every June at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. The hotel is okay, but they really need to work on keeping a clean, orderly business. The pool area had construction and was not clean, but useable. There were ripped water noodles on the floor. The breakfast was decent. The following year we chose to stay at the new Holiday Inn Express across the interstate. It did cost more, but it felt cleaner and was more organized.

Room card machine was down, clerk had to escort us to room and let us in, pool was out of order, there were dirty socks and a dirty toothbrush left on floor from previous guest. Room had not been vacuumed it was visibly filthy. There were BOOGERS smeared on wall by bed and in bathroom. They did give a discount of $20 but it should have been free. If it wouldn't have been so late we would have packed back up and tried to find another hotel. It was disgusting and over powering smell of Lysol, everywhere.

When you first walk in the Lobby and breakfast area are very nice. When you round the corner to go to your room, notice the dust and crust around the edges of the carpet. DIRTY!! There was only one other car in the parking lot on a New Years Eve. That should have told us something.. Anyway, we got checked in a room. She gave us a room that faced the wall off the pool building.. She switched us after complaining. The next room had white putty or something to repair a hole on the door. The carpet was DIRTY. The bathroom was small, towels paper thin and water that went from hot to cold. The matteresses appeared to be newer, but it was like sleeping on a board. I didn't want to stay there so I asked if I could use the computer to find another hotel. Guess what? There was no internet as advertised.. Our grand daughters used the pool, but it was dirty and the water was so cloudy you couldn't see the bottom of the pool. The breakfast was OK.. I would never recomend this hotel to anyone, ever.

We travel a lot and this hotel was truly our favorite. The front desk host was helpful above and beyond the call of duty, she really impressed us. The room itself was clean, comfortable, spacious and luxurious. The hot tub was better than any other we have encountered. There are great restaurants within walking distance too.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights and when we got our credit card bill we were charged for a third night. I've contacted their bookkeeper several times now and she continually gives me the run around about my bill. I even sent her my c.card statement via email to their email address on their statement and she says she does not get it. She's even told me she does not have record of my extra charges. I'm still waiting to get it resolved. From now on I'll give them a check! Bruce
