We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express, Coralville Iowa on November 25, 2008 as we traveled across the midwest to Chicago. I really enjoy this hotel everytime I have stayed (always on a Priceline bid). We have gotten a great rate that way always at $35 per night. We have had at least 3 Priceline stays over the past two years.
They have a decent hot breakfast in the morning, nothing spectacular but plentiful and tasty. The rooms are very clean, the hotel is relatively new and the employees are friendly and accommodating. This is an excellent winning bid in Iowa City/Coralville area if you are bidding for a 2*.
It is within walking distance of the CoralRidge Mall and a variety of restaurants are either just across the street or within two or three blocks. About two miles from the main campus of the University of Iowa or University Hospitals.
