The suite was very comfortable and we had everything we needed. Beds were very comfortable and hotel very quiet even though it was full.

The pool and hot tub is very small.

The breakfast is very good. Met our family needs. But seating was a little difficult. Few tables and small area made it difficult to get what you needed.

Coffee was good.

The hair dryer would not stay on. You had to hold a button with one hand and the dryer in the other. The stairwell carpet needs replacing. A/C was noisy. It was 2 stars and should be one.

Nothing fancy, I agree with other reviewers. Clean, basic accommodations, cramped location but close to shops and restaurants, some road noise from S. Duff, nothing fancy. We mainly needed a place to sleep prior to our campus visit. Reasonable rate and easy access.

I took my daughter to ISU for a college visit. We stayed here one night. It was close to all in the town and only minutes away from the college. The staff at the front desk was a student at ISU and gave us good tips for getting around.

The staff was very nice and very friendly, including the housekeeping staff. We were greeted each time we passed the front desk and asked if there was anything we needed. The bed pillows were high quality and comfortable. Very nice breakfast.

The room was much smaller than it looked in the online photos and needs a lot of updating. There were signs of wear especially in the bathroom.

The rooms are small and overpriced for the star rating given this hotel. Only 2 straight back chairs to sit in. The furnishings and décor need updating, the tub drained very slowly and a bathroom light was going out. The staff is well trained and pleasant. Overall our stay was pleasant but, again, the room was much smaller than it appeared in the online photos and overpriced for the condition and size.

Close to highway 35 with easy access in and out. The bed was very comfortable.

My room had an old smoke smell although it was non-smoking. It didn't feel like the carpet was clean so I wore my shoes in the room the whole time. The air conditioning unit was really loud.

I'm a business traveler but I pay for expenses out of pocket, so I chose this hotel for the 2.5 stars thinking that I would just need a good clean bed to sleep for the night and continued on in the morning and maybe have a place to work for an hour or two. Because of the smell in my room, I didn't want to work there at all so I just got back on the road early in the morning.

Do to bad weather had to locate a close hotel. Really enjoyed the stay and it happened on a Thursday when they were having their reception, so even got a nice little meal and didn't have to get out in the snow. Manager said they do this every Thursday and a thank you for staying. What a great place.

The best part about this hotel were the public spaces and the hotel staff. You could tell the lobby area as well as the fitness room and lobby restrooms were newly renovated. The fitness room was great!

We were in 2 different rooms. I can definitely say that both rooms smelled pretty strongly of cigarette smoke. Although everything was clean...the updates in the public spaces had not reached the rooms yet.

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
