Clean room, fast service at check out, room is two people size not much more. Has a refrigerator and microwave and Keurig coffee maker (a handy thing). Not real big on the sink right as I walk in the door. Nice 40 inch flat screen TV.

Pretty much your typical Holiday Inn. I have stayed here several times over the past few years. Good location. The hotel is getting a little older and could use a remodel soon. Having said that it is still clean and comfortable. The staff is always helpful and willing to accommodate. The restaurant will do in a pinch but not really...

We were able to get two rooms in close proximity for family members in town for a funeral. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The staff was very accomodating and friendly. It helped to make an unpleasant experience a more pleasant one. Thank you.

NOTE: We did not eat at the restaurant. Room was quiet, everything was clean, shower/sink worked fine. TV, microwave, mini-fridge, coffee maker in room. Bed firm but not hard. Very nice mid-level hotel. Easy access to ISU, just a five minute (or less) drive up University Avenue to the stadium or Hilton Coliseum. Friendly staff.

The room while not what i would call spectacular, had comfy beds and all the plumbing worked. I was especially happy that the room heater was quiet since most hotel room heaters are clunky and loud. Checking in and out was a breeze and the hotel was very clean

Hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. My room was a spacious suite, with a separate bedroom; kitchenette area with sink, microwave and frig; and living room area with TV, pullout sofa, easy chair and whirlpool tub. Bed was comfy. I would happily stay here again! My business meetings were in the same hotel, which was very convenient.

I've spent a few nights at this hotel, it is very clean and nice. The rooms are a little noisy, but not too much. The hotel is a bit older, so it is hard to find an outlet or a lamp with an electrical outlet to plug in your cell phone charger.
