Fair 4.0
Worse then a cheap motel
Pretty terrible. Definitely not a 4 star hotel. Room had food stains in desk and floor, hair in tub, heater didnt work, toilet hardly worked..24 bucks a noght for parking. Dumb college kids in charge that dont know anything. Definitely would never stay again.

Great night stay
We had an amazing stay at the graduate. It was clean,comfortable and a great night sleep. The only issue i might have with the room was the $5 waters left in room. I would prefer they be left at desk for purchase.
Matthew, us1 night trip
Good 6.0
Guide for glass door of shower was broken and the glass looked as if it would fall during my shower. Restaurants closed with covid, no microwave in room. Staff was pleasant and comp’d my water in the room since they had none for me to purchase otherwise.

University Town Charm
This is an older hotel but has been very well renovated and kept clean. The graduate’s eclectic decorating style fits perfectly, and we can’t wait to visit again sans pandemic. Grateful that Hotel staff kept tight Covid-19 restrictions and hotel room was very clean. With 3 kids the family suite was perfect and when the pool is open again, it looked out on the pool, was close to a beautiful gym AND next to a Top Golf simulator. We were there when the university students were on break, but were RIGHT downtown and walked to everything (no need for a car) great coffee, food, nightlife (during the school year), playground for the kids, public library, etc. Iowa City’s a great place... this hotel is in the heart of it all.

Our stay
The beds and room cleanliness was great. There however was a very noisy heater unit with a loud rattle every time the heater would turn on. Being a light sleeper I had to turn down heat just so it would not turn on often. Having no coffee pot in room was also a disappointment.
