Poor 2.0
It’s 12:50am I am awake due to a group of loud people screaming in the pool area despite being asked to quiet down!! I can hear them in my room over TV, heater etc have been for many hours now!! Very rude not pleased with being put by the pool when I’m staying for 4 days and come here often!!! Very disappointed with this stay!!!

Friendly staff, nice stay
Family of 4 stayed here for a weekend while visiting a daughter at ISU. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. They thanked us a couple of times for our business and were very quick to respond when we needed more towels or other items. Rooms and beds were clean and comfortable. Continental breakfast was the best I've seen in COVID times when food has to be prepackaged. The fitness room is large. The pool area is great with lots of sitting room, but the pool itself isn't great. It only goes about 3-feet deep. And the bathrooms in the room are small and old. Toilet flushed really slowly and the water pressure on the shower was weak. But overall it was a nice, inexpensive stay.

Just OK for to stay short time.
It was OK they did as what my request clean sheets, pillow cases and comforter. The rug has need to get clean not just to vacuum but need to stem. Aircondition is really loud my son has to turn it off so he could fall asleep. Elevator on the back side is really old and you could smell oil and inside my room the fire alarm is gone. No fire alarm and no schematic map in the back of the door incase of emergency where the stairs exits. I was in room 323 no fire alarm there seems like someone took it off and not putting it back.

Fair 4.0
Myself and another guest before me waited over 20 min to check in. 1130ish on a Friday night. After that experience, ants in bathroom and shower water was a small degree above lukewarm. I was attempting to find a hotel to frequent the next 4yrs for my family and friends during football season. I find myself in town often now and would like a regular place to stay but definitely wasn't impressed.

Overall, this wasn't a bad place to stay. Right off the interstate and easy access to campus, the location was great. Beds, breakfast, the overall appearance of the hotel was good too! Our problem: the entire exercise room was broken. One of the treadmills flat out didn't work, the other you could increase speed, but not decrease without an auto shut off. The weight machine was broken. The stationary bikes were both broken as well. For two people who really wanted to work out, it was a pretty big disappointment. Thus my review, it was an ok place to stay. Nothing really bad, but nothing really great either. Would we stay there again? If the exercise room is fixed, yes! If not, probably not.

This Place had a great check in. We rented a suite,But when we got into the suite it had no dishes,silverware. So had to go to they,re coffee court and get paper plates and plastic ware and supplies for room that should of been in. Then when our company arrived went to take them to hotel bar and restaurant only to find that it had been closed down till futher notice. So we ended up taking having to rent cabs to take us to a restaurant and bar to entertain. When we got back to room decided we was all going to go swimming only to find out pool was closed till futher notice and the pool was only a 3 foot wading pool. We would like to be refunded for this expense but the hotel management would not refund. Do Not Stay Here!!!
