Fair 4.0
Never again
Carpeting in the hallway to our room was coming up on multiple spots and duct taped in one area. I understand they are remodeling on this floor in another hallway, but the hotel had 7 other floors we could have been placed on. The room had an odor. The pillows were so flat that I felt like I was being smothered. Went to get breakfast in the am, thought it was complimentary, no one at the doorway when I entered so I put some eggs on my plate. Then a lady comesover to ask me if I had a breakfast ticket. WhenI told her I did not she informs me that it will be 13 dollars. At this point I already had food on my plate. Food was cold, gross, and not any better than the complimentary breakfast at other 2 star hotels. Big disappointment. Will never go back.

Room was comfortable.Amenities were good. Shower was nice and large but had a horrible shower head that needs replacing there was no way to get it to face out into the shower.

Great stay
Fantastic staff. The red headed girl (sorry, didn’t get name) at check in was fantastic. The staff in the restaurant was friendly and attentive. I think our servers name was Olivia our first night in the IowaStater, and we really enjoyed her. The bed wasn’t comfortable at all, and the room attendants didn’t freshen our room between our first and second nights. Room was clean, bathroom stocked well, and the ac/heater kept the room comfortable. The walk to Jack Trice Stadium was a nice easy walk with Campus Police directing traffic and keeping pedestrians safe at all times. Free coffee in the morning in the lobby.

The speed of check in was amazing and the clerk was attentive and friendly. My room was amazing. It had a bathroom with a jacuzzi tub, 2 person shower with jets, and a TV. Perfect for a couples evening. Highly recommend.
