Nice hotel, room was clean, bed comfortable, towels aplenty and TV, internet, microwave and refrigerator. Business center did not meet my needs as I was unable to download a pdf and print. I had to use my own computer to download, then print from a thumb drive in the manager's office. Staff was gracious and helpful. I saw pool tables and game machines but did not use them. Overall, a nice hotel, but not four or even three stars. Still, no complaints of a serious nature. ...

I was not sure what to expect since this was the first time I had tried Priceline.com. The hotel met my expectations. There were placards in the entry showing the color schemes for the renovations. I thought our room was tastefully decorated. The hallway carpets showed some wear at the seams, but were not bad. I don't know how far along they are with the renovations, but all seemed to be in order in the public areas. The pool looked nice but we did not use it. Our bed had a very noticeable sag in the center and was not very comfortable to sleep on. We reported it at checkout and they said they would have someone take a look at it. ...

See above. I am frustrated with priceline for continuing to offer this as a 2.5+ star hotel. There are far nicer hotels in Cedar Falls!

For the star level I thought it would be a nicer. By first impressions you would think this was a fancy hotel and then you leave the lobby. The corridor looked old and you got the impression that it was an outdoor entered hotel turned into an indoor entrance. The room was clean, but parts were dated. The towel rack had a dent in it and the tiles in the bathroom were old.
