The smell in the hotel was overwhelming. It smelled like they were using a huge number of floral air fresheners to mask something. It was quite off putting.

My room was on the top floor and under a loud Roof Top Unit that vibrated and was an annoying noise. We also did not have a coffee maker in our room but had a basket full of coffee and creamers. Stayed here before and had better experiences before this one.

one bad apple can ruin the entire batch.

check in people were great and accommodating. the only problem we had was with the seating hostess manager at breakfast the next day. the hotel room purchase came with breakfast and she refused me the complimentary breakfast. it was very strange, i'm glad I confirmed before I sat down and ate. my room confirmation clearly states it comes with a breakfast but the hostess manager said no. I didn't have time to waste discussing and lost my appetite at being treated like some second class citizen just trying to get some free food - like it didn't already pay for it or something. it was about 10:-10:30am on Saturday. the seating hostess was trying to be accommodating, she was very nice but looked pretty new to the job. the middle aged Caucasian lady that came out to resolve the question was cold and indifferent to the issue at best. horrible experience that ruined what was otherwise a very nice overnight stay.

I have forwarded this to our team to see what happened. Very few if any of our room nights come with complimentary breakfast, but our hostess should have simply verified your room number with her information. My apologies that we had someone on the floor before properly training them. I appreciate you letting us know so that we may address the problem. Sincerely, Jeff P General Manager

Not risking 4 adults in a king size bed

We booked this hotel online for 1 night for 4 adults. On check in my husband was told we had a king size bed and could also have a roll away bed. We did end up getting 2 double beds but he was told that he shouldn't expect double beds. It is concerning that any hotel finds it acceptable to put 4 adults in a king room. I did share our experience via email with Ms Gregg as she emailed us to find out our experience. The only other thing that is concerning, and I had to call about, is that this hotel also puts a 50.00 hold on your account for incidentals. I do have to note that the rooms were clean, pool was cloudy, wifi in room is 12.95 and free in the lobby. This hotel has great reviews and that is why I chose to spend an extra 50.00 for a great hotel. We will not stay here again.

Great Location! Right on ISU Campus!

Pros: Quiet
Cons: expensive breakfast buffet
Excellent stay! Comfortable rooms, great service! My only complaint was the overuse of chemicals in the pool. Your eyes would burn even if you didn't get in the water. It wreaked havoc on the the children's skin.
