The Iowa blankets on the bed are newest thing of the hotel. recently updated - not so much. Shower disgusting and carpet would not step on it in my bare feet. hours of front desk are from 7:30-10pm they informed us on how to get in and get keys which were openly on front desk. Hoping we were the only ones staying there. At least no one was in our room ready to murder us.

The check in was quick and staff was very friendly! We were in walking distance to MANY restaurants and on the campus and river. The room was clean and the water pressure was amazing! Plenty of pillows and a comfortable mattress, the room wasn’t huge, but not a problem. The free breakfast was breads, boiled eggs, pre-made sandwiches fruits, cereal and good coffee. Very happy with this hotel!

Old school! On campus! The (free) parking across the street is a little confusing, but mostly this strange old, well appointed riverside on campus hotel is quite nice.

Great location in heart of campus! Well maintained friendly mostly staffed with students. Within the Iowa Memorial Union The Iowa House has that connected to the university feel.

Staff was amazing! It just should have been VERY clear that the hotel itself had no pool, especially with people not knowing the area and having kids
