    Rooms apparently have just been redone, and things were neat and clean including the bathroom, carpeting, beds, etc. Location, is just OK.

  • 2.0.Poor

    There was nothing that we liked. Walking down the hallway, there was mold on the ceiling in several spots from where it was leaking, our room had spots on the ceiling also. The bath towels were dirty, looks like the room hadn’t been dusted in quite some time, the guide in the room had something spilled on it and molded. The so called breakfast was cold cereal, toast and a few different things of fruit.

  • 6.0.Good

    Great location. 50%+- remodeled, bathroom nice, and fixtures nice. Bed was good. Nice Satellite tv options with movie channels and options. Dirty carpet. We strongly suggest mgmt Remove carpet and put in hard floors. Smells were bad in hallway and room. The breakfast was not good. Remodel breakfast room. Not expensive to make minor changes. I ate there but not very .....appetizing

    Average hotel, great location

    This hotel is small. Not many rooms. The continental breakfast was ok at best. The room and hotel had a musty odor to it. However, the location was perfect as I was there for family weekend at ISU. Close to restaurants , shopping and the campus. The beds were also pretty comfortable.

  • 2.0.Poor


    The room (and the whole hotel) stunk. I was only in town for one night so I tolerated it with the window open. The next morning, there was no hot water. I called the front desk and they said half the rooms didn't have hot water. Then she offered me a 20% discount. I accepted the discount and my FREEZING cold shower. At checkout, I wanted confirmation of my discount but, surprise, the manager was not in. As I suspected, they were up to funny business and changed my 20% discount to a $20 discount. I called and spoke with the front desk staff and manager who both basically told me to go screw myself. I would NEVER stay here again and will make sure any and all ISU alums know the same.
