“go somewhere else!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2009

We were looking for something immediate and cheap to crash for the night and got what we paid for (actually there are, we found, some decent places for the same price). It's just off of I80/35 and there are a few others to pick from nearby at the same exit. The room a/c was old and smelled funny and the hallway carpet seemed damp. The pool area was clean enough but the door was propped open to the back of the property which I found creepy because there were kids in the pool. The front desk will only issue you a replacement towel for the pool after you've used the one from your room, so if you go to the pool, you have to get dressed and go get dry ones to shower with--ridiculous! We found the front desk lady to be disinterested and rude, but the man at the desk the next morning was at least cheerful. There is a workout room. To get to the point, for a little less if you're not too picky about location, go to the Baymont at the airport--far better.
