2/10 Poor

Extremely disappointed
Reasonable price. Swimming pool closed, card enty didn't work, no refrigerator and microwave, calking looked like a two-year-old did it, tub leaked into lower floor as reported by the person staying in lower room, no phone to call to desk, no elevator, and requested adjoining rooms and did not receive. Went down to desk and rang the bell for ten to fifteen minutes before anyone came and then they didn't seem to care. Desk attendent says they will be remodeling in a month but if they're going to have people paying and staying there they should still give at good service. Pictures look great but definitely not what the place looks like. Basically if felt like it was a dump and a total rip-off. Didn't take pictures because I didn't know I could up load them.

Don’t believe website
Hotels website and profile needs update. There was no restaurant, pool, bar or breakfast. I would have booked somewhere else with a fairly similar rate if I’d have know any of these things weren’t available. If you just want a bed and bathroom for cheap it’s fine. Room was clean and the bed was adequate. Place looks as if it was shutdown for awhile. Sitting areas were covered with trash. Stay at the Days Inn next door at least they have the breakfast as advertised.

False advertisement. Nothing looked like the pictures online, everything was under construction even the pool. My bed was super wobbly. The shower curtains had a mold on them. And there was a dog barking at night and in the morning.

This motel must be getting ready to close. It looked as if it was getting ready to be demolished. The front desk clerk was very nice. It was not her fault that the premises were so bad.

4/10 Fair

No pool. Booked it because it was supposed to have a pool - thought the kids would like that. It has one, but its closed/unoperable. The whole building inside is pretty rough. Half the lights were off, drip buckets and trash cans were everywhere to catch leaking water. Ceiling had water damage and was pretty poor condition. Noisy late, was a bunch of people drinking and playing cards in the lobby with kids running around. No elevator to get our stuff tonthe second floor. No breakfast, no restaurant/bar. Definitely will not stay there again.

It was a great place for what I needed. I was in-town visiting UNI nearby and just needed a room for the night. It was overall okay, there were many buckets around the hotel for dripping water, but was basic for what I needed.

The pool and restaurant are not in operation and there was no indication prior to arriving that they were not in operation. They also are not serving breakfast. They state this is due to COVID but many other hotels have figured this out. We could not get the heat to work in our rooms and it was very cold due to this. One of our rooms the tv did not work. The lighting was very dim which made you not feel very safe.
