The owner of the hotel has been in denial and completely uncooperative. We are currently filing a complaint with the Wyndham corporate... More

Overall the hotel was good. I was there for a one night stay business trip to Iowa State. Checked in around 11:30 pm and checked out around 8 a.m. I wasn't impressed by the breakfast selection and seating availability, but I'm not the biggest breakfast eater so it didn't bother me too much.

They did not let us use our "go fast" points for this hotel. I thought it was overpriced.. We had a king, no smoking , which was nice. This is a college town, so it was crowded when we went out for dinner.

The room was clean and decent for the stay. The only issue that I had was the breakfast was not good at all.

This hotel is well used and appeared well used. My room was dirty as if it wasn't vacuumed or poorly done. No TV remote in the room. Went to the front desk and the gal laughed. No spare remote. No problem if you like to stand at the TV and push buttons on the back of it. I couldn't tell... More
