You get what you pay for in lodging choices.
This place is a shodow of a once dynamic property. A new name is nice... but new carpet would be better.

Good place to stay for the price.
Check in was a little slow as clerk was new. Hotel was not cleaned from the New Years Eve Party the night before. Room was nice and comfortable. Very helpful staff. Breakfast was very good with hot and cold items. Pool needs some work, but was nice to swim in

Anybody that has rated this hotel nice or great is lying!! Probably the owner or staff trying to keep the ratings above a 3. This is the most disgusting property I have ever seen! Filthy filthy filthy!! Light bulbs are not replaced most places in the hotel to hide the filth!! Our room was supposedly nonsmoking but reeked of smoke! Disgusting stains on comforter, sheets, and all over the couch. Carpet is absolutely filthy! Hair on bathroom floor and black mold in bathroom. We were there with a large group for a football game at UNI. My daughter's room had stains all over the wall and same stained bedding. A bed bug was found in one of the football players rooms! We had no tv remote in our room. When I went to the front desk they opened a drawer filled with junk and pulled out a remote with no back. The crotchy rude front desk worker was smoking out front when we arrived. Very rude and unwelcoming individual! I was in my room for 10 minutes and knew there was no way we could stay there! The only good thing that I experienced there was they promptly refunded my money when I said we were leaving. Another guest in our group opened the microwave in their room to find a plate of moldy food! DO NOT STAY IN THIS FILTH AND DISGUST! I plan to contact the health department as well. It is truly that bad!!! Stated at a lovingly clean place down the street. The staff there commented they were shocked they were still open!!

The worker at the desk was not very friendly and frustrated. Computers were down so everything was done on paper and then I was charged by the hotel when I had already paid through app. Spoke with manager 2 days later and he said he would take care of it and he did.

I had stayed at this hotel several times in the past. Has been several years since the last time. Hotel has really gone downhill. I feel sorry for the people that work there. Was worst hotel experience of my life. Came close to leaving after getting into bed but no other hotel rooms in the area. Staff was fine but hotel was dirty. Had two rooms, traveling with family, had to switch one room due to black mold in bathroom. Staff switched us to another room. Tv did not work at all in that room. Other room remote did not work. Unless you absolutely have no other options I recommend avoiding this hotel. Only bright spot was leaving in the morning.
