I am an author traveling to support my new book and sometimes arrive at a hotel very late as in this case. The young lady was very helpful and the hotel was just as I expected. Very comfortable.

Room was clean and seemed pretty quiet other than the noise from trucks on I-35 coming in and out of the truck stop next door. I don't think there were many people staying in the hotel that night, so hard to say how quiet it would be between rooms. Bed was comfortable. Staff member that checked us in was very pleasant. Breakfast was a typical continental breakfast, nothing to write home about but still adequate. Cost was a little pricey considering what you get for one night.

Good location

Pros: It was a good location considering that I was there to attend a School Reunion in Rake, Iowa.
Location: Our school consolidated with other county schools in 1978. The same as many small town schools are doing across the country.
Hotel was located close to the junction of highway 35 and 90 which was great to get around the city and North/South, East/West. Room was comfortable, hotel had a good breakfast that was always ready before the set time of 7 a.m. Staff provided good service.
