Not a bad place. Away fruition the highway so traffic noise is nill. There is a very nice sit-down restaurant with good ole Iowa food that also delivers to your room with a small fee going to the hotel. The bed was comfy and large. The tv was big, like 50 inch, with a ton of channels, much more than...

After a long drive I was pleasantly greeted. Room was fabulous. Clean and everything worked well. Breakfast area was clean and well organized. Tv worked well and plenty of outlets for charging. Would absolutely stay here again. A little challenging to get to as my GPS did not show that you have to essentially go thru another parking lot to...

Check-in was quick & easy. The room was pretty small-ish, but reasonably clean. There was a fridge & mic. The workspace was tiny, and more or less shared the same space as the TV. Wi-fi was decent. The bed was average, I guess - not real comfortable, but it didn't hurt my back or anything. A couple of hours after...

I had no idea this hotel was not smoke free. We had a room on the top floor (3rd) and there were some smoking rooms we had to walk by in order to get to our room. Not a pleasant smell to say the least. They should dedicate 1 floor for that or the better choice is to be totally...

I stayed here one night for a business trip, room was clean, staff was nice & my bed was comfy i stayed in a room with a king size bed. Only thing i would say is that breakfast wasn't the best. I would stay here again if i was in the area.

This was my 3rd stay in three years and I must say that it was very average and that's being generous. The service was off point, in fact I'm still waiting for the return call to answer a basic question I he'd about the HVAC system. The room was okay, but the the towels and finish seemed on the cheap...

Clean quiet rooms. Check in easy. Nice pool and hot tub. Breakfast offered a great variety of food. The iowa machine shed is right next door and has great food as well. Free wifi and private parking. Would stay again.

I have stayed at this hotel a couple times before. The last time was on the top floor and everything was great. The first time there was an issue with the bathroom pocket door, which I experienced this time as well in Room 143. The little latch sticks out and doesn’t work the way it should (I don’t know if...

The room was clean and neat. The pool area was very nice too. We traveled from Flatwoods KY to visit our granddaughter for the weekend. The spa jets were broken and that was kind of a bummer but it was still warm and relaxing. The breakfast was good and the staff was very kind and helpful. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed at the Sleep Inn two nights and it was clean except there is a smell when you walk into the hotel and our room has a smell, don't know it was from the smell of sewer gas from the shower. Breakfast was good. We ate the Machine Shed next to them for other meals. There is noise being...
