The staff was plain rude and not personable at all!! Coming into that this hotel could be a five star but it made it really difficult to see anything beyond his nasty attitude!!! Yes

CK, It would have been great had you included your contact info and date/time of arrival to pin point who was rude to you.

5 out of 5
bedroom/bed was comfy, bathroom sink arrangement was strange, low cost when normally trying to book a room (not last minute, I was lucky to even get a room), friendly staff, easy to get to/find, nice pool courtyard, clean room.

Hotel with small pool at budget rate

This Quality Inn Starlite is a terrific value hotel with large area near pool for informal gatherings. Our only disappointment was the cool temperature of the pool. The hot waffles, sausages, eggs plus cold items saved us $ and time for breakfast. All staff were helpful and friendly. If you quiet, you might ask for rooms away from the pool.

Popular hotel - needs update badly

Pros: Location
Cons: Complete update or drop the price in half.
Guest rooms and lobby styles are about 20 years old - 10 years past when they should have been updated. Everything is just tacky. As an example, when our room was last painted they didn't bother to take off outlet covers our unplug lamps etc. and therefore paint is smeared on both. Makes you wonder what other shortcuts where taken. We will not be staying here again.

Nice, but

Nice front desk person, but service lie was always busy. Nice bed but ugly chairs. Nice shower, but no tub. I was really wanting a soak. If I had my toddler with me I would have checked out because of the lack of tub.

The hotel provided a very nice banquet for our large group

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
I enjoyed my stay. The room was average size for this price range with the bathroom a little crowded. The bed was comfortable. The pool area looked nice but I did not have an opportunity to personally use it. The banquet I attended at the hotel was well planned and we were served efficiently and with attention to detail.

Family Stay at ISU

Family stayed here while daughter was reviewing Iowa State campus. Staff, facility-including pool atrium, a hot breakfast were a hit. Fitness Center was way above what you expect. We left with good vibs and will stay again if she decides to attend ISU.
