    Never Again!
    Not a good stay! Wasn't pleased when I had to give them an extra $100 incidental fee! Room didn't have carpet. Head board had a hand print and some other stain on it. The sheet had a stain on it! Bathroom was very dirty especially the floors. Toilet was very low (made for a child). One of the worst hotels I ever stayed in! Won't be staying there again!

    Very lean and the staff was very aware of concerned about social distancing. Would recommend this hotel if you have to travel at this time

    Good 6.0
    Looked dark and gloomy as we pulled up, like a prison but once inside it brightened up. Our room was nice except our tub/shower had no water pressure what so ever. Very disappointed there was no hot tub in pool area because thats one of the main things i go for. Also it was Sunday when we checked out and the continental breakfast was going until 10 the directory said, but when we went down at 9:20 she was cleaning it up and refused my daughter and granbabies.

    Great hotel and staff. Only thing I found wrong was the website said it had a hottub and it didn’t.
    us1 night trip with friends
    Fair 4.0
    When we arrived, I was given a key to a room that looked like it had been ransacked. Trash everywhere, lights on, tv blaring and no mattress on one bed; not a very welcoming sight. I also had booked four other rooms and the front desk had about 4 guys dressed unprofessionally and in sandals (winter in Iowa) standing around. It was a little weird. I also had booked the hotel because I thought it had a hot tub, but when we got to the pool, there wasn't one. This was very disappointing to the group I brought. I was told that the jacuzzi tubs were only in a couple rooms. I felt like I got the old bait and switch routine. In all fairness, although the hotel would not refund my money for the second night, I was given a discount coupon to use at the attached restaurant and the food was quite good.

    Looks great could use some help.
    Things looked amazing and were clean. Very spacious room. Downsides: couch and one of our chairs was broken. No vent or heat lamp in bathroom, service was only so-so, bed was somewhat comfortable, air handling units were a bit noisy and they had drilling work being down until 10p(when we called) right below our room keeping us awake.

    Embarrassed & Dissappointed
    When we arrived we were very pleased with our room and the hotel. I had driven my brother to the airport and we both stayed overnight. He was going to use the shuttle to the airport, and I was going to checkout when I woke up later in the morning. This is what we told the representative when checking in. I awoke to a knock at my door and immediately bolted up, and a hotel employee walked in WHILE I WAS GETTING DRESSED to answer the door several hours before I planned on even getting up to pack and leave. Since I was utterly embarrassed I packed up and left, telling the girl at the front desk what happened. She brushed it off saying that the representative at the front desk checked us out when my brother left and blamed us for their confusion. I have never been so humiliated in my life and blamed for it afterwards. I would have asked to speak to a manager for a refund or something, but was too embarrassed to stick around.I truly liked the stay up until that happened. I was willing to overlook the burn-in to the television and the disgusting things left in the refrigerator, but that final incident was the straw that broke the camel's back, persay.
