Lovely
Lovely place to stay, restaurant is a bit pricey. Would not be able to afford during football season

Just OK
Entrance was very confusing and pretty much non existent. Whole facility feels like it's still 1980. It's right next to the highway, not as close to ISU as advertised. Rooms were OK--heat took forever to warm up. Beds were fine.

Excellent facility and service with a smile! The only downfall is that breakfast is not included and there was not a mini frig in the room.

Great location at the Gateway!
Great location! Clean and comfortable. TV had a slight problem with no signal, but then got better. Enjoyed dinner and breakfast at the Iowa Stater restaurant in hotel. The restaurant stayed open until late, which was helpful.
