Pros: the rooms were nice and updated. I liked the kitchenette that was available in our room.
Cons: Our room seemed to be half cleaned. There were dirty towels still on floor in bathroom, and both trash cans were full of someone elses trash.

4.3 Okay
Pros: Location
Cons: Rooms smelled musty and like wet animal. Shampoo left in shower from previous guest.

Not sure how this could be such a high rating.

HOT BREAKFAST including sausage and eggs. “Pump” bottles of shampoo and conditioner are inside the showers which are a plus. Close parking. Bed was comfortable. We requested extra blankets and a pillow prior to our arrival and they were in the room!! Big plus. Also allowed us to check in a few hours earlier. Air conditioning was ICE COLD on a really hot summer day in Iowa.
Cons: The hotel charged for the room twice. The money is now tied up until the bank releases the funds. This caused some hardship during our trip due to their employee error. Upon checking in I was told that the only charge I would receive would be a $1.00 authorization charge for accidents and that the hotel had already received payment.

Pros: Comfort wise everything was great

Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The bathroom shower was very nice, appreciated the nice hot water with strong water pressure.
Cons: I like the heating/air conditioning unit fan to keep running to keep air circulating and also some white noise. This unit fan would only operate while heating or cooling. The cable television did not work for several hours even after I reported it. The bathroom area lighting over the sink and mirror was very dim. Not great for applying make up.

That was just amazing considering we paid half again as much at a motel the previous night that was a dive!

5.0 Okay
Pros: Quite close to the Iowa Speedway.
Cons: Bed sheets were dirty :( Shower didn't work very well. Breakfast was very basic, very few options.
2.5 Mediocre
Pros: We were able to use the breakfast area to gather at night as we were all in town for a funeral. The staff was pleasant but I gave them a poor rating as that would have given the hotel almost a 4 for a rating and there is no way I could give it that. 2.5 is the lowest rating you can give which seems strange to me... misleading in fact that you are forced to at least give that much for a rating.
Cons: Several in our group found bed bugs, our toilet was dirty. Several others reported toilets that didn’t work. The pool was out of order. The elevator was out of order. The breakfast was pretty bare bones even for continental breakfasts. The pillows on our bed were all mismatched... we had one super small pillow and the other so large that a 1/4 of it stuck out of the pillow case. The room had a musty smell. This hotel definitely needs some attention and maintenance. We’ll be looking elsewhere when we need to stay in the area again.
2.0 Mediocre
Pros: Close to I-80
Cons: This is by far the worst hotel that we've ever stay in. The carpet was filthy and damp. Refrigerator has rust inside and smell awful.

Definitely we will not return back.
4.5 Okay
Pros: I was glad we only spent one night.
Cons: The door to our room was open when we arrived. The only way to keep the door closed was to push on it real hard from the inside and lock it with the security lock and hasp. One of us had to stay in the room at all times because the door wouldn't shut all the way and lock behind us if we left the room.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was clean and the staff was nice.
