Exceptional 10,0
Great stay
Fantastic staff. The red headed girl (sorry, didn’t get name) at check in was fantastic. The staff in the restaurant was friendly and attentive. I think our servers name was Olivia our first night in the IowaStater, and we really enjoyed her. The bed wasn’t comfortable at all, and the room attendants didn’t freshen our room between our first and second nights. Room was clean, bathroom stocked well, and the ac/heater kept the room comfortable. The walk to Jack Trice Stadium was a nice easy walk with Campus Police directing traffic and keeping pedestrians safe at all times. Free coffee in the morning in the lobby.

The speed of check in was amazing and the clerk was attentive and friendly. My room was amazing. It had a bathroom with a jacuzzi tub, 2 person shower with jets, and a TV. Perfect for a couples evening. Highly recommend.
