When visiting Cedar Rapids, this hotel is my first choice. #1 - Location - It is close to downtown, the mall, the highway, the restaurants, the college, etc. However, it's not right in a noisy area. #2 - Comfort - The rooms are large, beds comfortable, linens fresh and new, microwave, refrigerator. #3 - Free Internet and Lots of charging plugs #4 - Value - great breakfast, snacks, food, etc #5 - Friendly staff - welcoming at desk, offers of help
I've never checked in to a hotel and been given a FREE BEER upon arrival before! What a nice touch! I checked in during the 'social hour' between 5:30-7 on a weekday. Free food, wine, soda, and beer. The staff was VERY friendly, and I slept soundly without interruption all four nights of my stay. Also........ the WINDOW opened! I was allowed fresh air during the night, which is unheard of in Texas. The only downside was that the hot tub's jets were not working. BUT..... the hot tub was still hot, and I was in it several times anyway. Even ran every morning in the workout room, and watched free HBO while I did it. I would DEFINITELY stay here again.
We loved the breakfast and the staff was very friendly and competent.
I have stayed here twice. Once with family and again on a solo trip. Both times the hotel rooms were clean and made up well. Staff was helpful and the complimentary breakfast was pretty good and good way to get an easy breakfast. We all enjoyed the pool, which was clean and a good warm temp. I was surprised at how many other travelers had dogs...I saw and heard a lot of dogs as we walked the halls. But I did not hear any at night, so it was a peaceful night's sleep.
This hotel has a nice indoor pool and a relaxing happy hour, beer, wine and grilled burgers and hotdogs. Room was clean, comfortable and quiet.
Everyone was very courteous and friendly. Clean, Comfy and overall a nice place to stay. Also a great value for the price.
Staff are courteous and helpful, the environment is nice and very impressive.
Everything from the staff to the rooms was excellent. The room was beautiful and very up to date. It had a spacious area to sit and unwind and watch tv. The kitchenette was convenient and nice to have. It really seemed like a home away from home. The breakfast in the morning wasn't over the top but much more than you usually see at hotel breakfast. Overall It was GREAT!
I stayed at this hotel and would not recommend it. The whirlpool did not work properly. When I said something to the front desk, I was told maintenance would be notified. That was supposed to be early the next day. Yet the next day I was told the maintenance man wouldn't be in. The clerk said they were having trouble with it, but the previous clerk said no one else had complained. The clerk when I check in was helpful, but two after that were not. The room is close to the highway. There is noise from it, as well as a railroad track next the the hotel. Everything here is done on the cheap. There are plastic glasses in the room, and the room didn't have lotion or anything like that. The hotel is undergoing renovation. I wouldn't stay here again if I had a free room. The best thing about staying here is the breakfast. The woman who cooked the food and took care of the room was awesome and very pleasant.
