Decent stay for the price value. Room is clean, but the lobby hallway needs to smell better.

Very positive experience, no complaints, above average across the board. Only complaint is weekends, when the hotel is booked for groups of children, however I think the kids loved the place as well.

I would recommend this property and stay here again without a doubt. My 3 day stay was very comfortable and without any problems. Internet service was also quick.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lovemy5 Kids aren't happy, ain't nobody happy!!
We traveled with three small children that range in age from 4 to 11. We had requested a portable bed be placed in our room prior to arrival. Check in was easy and the staff member was curtious. Greeted with a smile. After check in, we went to dinner then came back to the hotel room to relax. However, the portable bed had not been placed in our room as we had asked. The front desk was called and the staff member apologized and said he forgot. Over an hour later, he still had not brought the bed. Again, the front desk was called. He apologized again, stated he was the only one working and he had been very busy. About 15 minutes later, he did bring the portable bed. However, during this long process, we were trying to watch television. Only to find out that our television did not work. A staff member was called to our room and she tried to fix it. She even changed the batteries in the remote. The children were cranky and they were not able to have their usual wind down time watching cartoons and just lounging around. When the children were restless, we as parents were very unhappy. We were in the hotel room for approximately 14 hours and we were not even able to watch the news or check the weather. The staff member at the front desk only took 25$ off of our stay for the television not working. We could have stayed in our suburban for free AND we would have been able to watch television. This made for an unpleasant start on our journey!! We will not stay at this location again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Notcomingbackever Stinky rooms
The staff was great, but the 1st room I checked into had a terrible odor (it was on the first floor). After spraying the room with a can of deodorizer from the hotel desk staff, and trying to adjust the air conditioning unit, I left the room for dinner to see if it would get any better - when I returned it had not improved. I took off my shoes, and discovered the carpeting was soaking wet - literally. I contacted the hotel staff, who agreed the carpeting was even "squishy". The staff checked me into another room on the 2nd floor - also wet carpet. Unfortunately, I would have checked out and went somewhere else, but it was late and I was not able to get a room at a couple of the other locations nearby. The room smelled horrible, and did not appear to be very clean. However, the staff was great and the breakfast was good. They provided a "happy hour" when you checked in with snacks and free bar drinks/soda, which was a nice touch... but you need to do something about the carpeting and overall cleanliness....

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by UnsatisfiedTraveller Poor construction - Loud Hotel
I changed rooms druing my stay due to the amount of noise coming fom the room above mine. In the second room, while on the top level, I could still hear noise from the neighbors beside me. The walls here are THIN - so you better hope you get a quiet neighbor when staying here.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marga28 Clean room and A/C functioned properly
this review is for a one-night stay over a four-night trip around Iowa during a humid time of June. This was the only hotel where the room A/C functioned like it should - comfortable temperature, relatively quiet and best of all, none of that awful clammy feeling that you get from a lot of the hotel window AC units. This is the second time I've stayed at this particular hotel. The first time was 2 years ago and the hotel is starting to show some signs of wear & tear. However the rates at this hotel remain rather high. Hopefully they will keep up on maintenance and not go the way of most of the neighboring hotels which have seen better days.

The staff at this hotel are always pleasant and accommodating. On one occassion after my flight was cancelled, having already checked out that morning, I needed only to make a quick phone call and another room was available for both my colleague and myself. This is an intangible that any weary traveler can appreciate! No questions asked and no hassles!
Just another reason I choose IHG properties.
Check out the Granite City restaurant if you spend some time there. It's only a hop, skip and a jump from there and totally worth it! Great food at a reasonable price!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Osborne Not expectation for a Holiday Inn Express
Disappointed with the front desk staff. 1 person was being trained and he was doing his best but the trainer was not easy to work with on my questions and requests. Did not acknowledge IHG membership, I had to had to request I receive extra points rather than the typical. Will stay farther from the airport next time I fly out of Cedar Rapids.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tess71 comfortable bed and loved the pillows
The breakfast was good, but by the time we ate, the bacon was gone , but we still had ham. As an IHG member we usually get a bottle of water upon check-in but this location did not offer. Lots of trains at night, which they have no control over. Would be nice to have refrigerator and microwave in the rooms. Overall the stay was good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris50648 Very nice
My girlfriend and I needed a one day getaway. The King Executive was large enough for us to move around. The bed was comfy the room was very nice. Lots of restaurants and a few bars in the area. Only thing is..."WHY" don't they have a soap dish in the bathroom? Oh well :)
Breakfast is good enough to get you going, but I've had better at lower cost hotels.
I plan to stay here again as a jump off point for a flight out of CR.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mom_4x4 Uncomfortable bed and unable to sleep
The bed was very uncomfortable both my husband and I were up several times do to backs hurting so bad we couldn't sleep. Also way to much light coming into room both from under door to hall and windows. Finally found somthing to stuff curtain in window. Person above us was loud walking and stomping all night and all morning long. Unable to hear t.v without really turning it up. Stayed many places and this was by far one of the worst stays we have had.

Refrigerator on the room was vibrating whole night, heater is on / off even when I suposed turn it off. When turns on (by itself) heavy vibration sound doesn´t allows me to sleep.
But was very good to wake me up at 3:00 am in the morning to take my flight at 5:00 am

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by WBtrent No hot water and condescending tech staff
While the room was clean and the front desk staff was helpful, my overall stay was only fair. There was no hot water to shower in the morning. When trying to connect to the internet, I received a message that the server was essentially a ghost site trying to hack my information. The tech staff told me it was my computer's problem since I was using a Mac. I have never had this problem at a Holiday Inn Express before. The tech staff person went through possible problem solving strategies so quickly that most individuals would not be able to follow. Essentially, he was condescending and seemed more interested in blaming me and my computer rather than solving the problem. Since I expect to spend much more time in the Cedar Rapids area supporting website access and use, this experience will have an impact on my lodging decisions and recommendations in the future.

I travel a lot for work and during my recent visit both the treadmills (2/2) were out of order. Also, I was having trouble with the wifi on all 3 devices (iphone, ipad and work laptop). I over heard another guest discussing the same issue with the front desk.
