Nice but a bit overpriced. The Mother's Day brunch was a disappointment. We liked the room and service otherwise! The pool was entertaining for our youngest but it is a fairly small pool. The drinks and cookies in the lobby were a nice touch.

I had to book a room at the last minute late in the day (after 5pm) They offered me a full price room, I could have left to find a cheaper hotel, I only needed a one night stay and I left early the next morning. It was disappointing that they wouldn't give a discount for a late night walkin.

I have stayed at this hotel at least 6 times over past few years, most recently this past weekend. Overall, the hotel is very well maintained; lobby and dining areas look like new. Hotel has new "air beds"--not a fan of these as cannot get the firmness right and take 20 + minutes to adjust. Cons: sheets are thin and feel worn; only had 3 bath towels total for for the stay for 3 people. Pool is looking old. No one was swimming.

Felt the prices were inflated for a hotel, you are paying for the hotel brand, not the quality of service, accommodations, amenities, etc. Would rather be down the road in an equal quality hotel for $50 less/night. Very nice hotel, but again in comparison to other higher quality hotels it was very over priced, especially for the location.

My daughter and I stayed a couple of nights due to her Iowa State orientation. We were both very pleased with the service and friendly staff. The rooms are great. They include adjustable air beds, a Keurig coffee maker, very spacious and clean, bathroom was spacious and had good lighting so we could do our hair and makeup easily. There was also a full length mirror in the room. Nice! Great place to stay at, very relaxing and my only place to stay from now on out when I visit Aimes.

Rooms were spacious and clean and conveniently located. The pool was kind of small and the air conditioner was very loud.

I should start off by saying that I am a very frequent traveler and have top tier statuses at a couple hotel chains. Thus I feel as if I stay in enough hotels to have a good idea as to what is a "typical" level of hospitality. This is a nice hotel with good amenities, unfortunate this hotel's staff was so unprepared and incompetent in handling a very basic issue it ruined my entire visit. It is hard to be able to give more than 1 star when a hotel fails to address the basic tenets of hospitality... Read more
