Verified Reviews of Hampton Inn Iowa City / University Area

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Tried to cancel because of covid."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The wedding we were planning on attending was canceled due to covid, so we requested a refund for our reservations. The hotel did not provide a refund. We were disappointed that the wedding was canceled and even more disappointed at the unwillingness of the hotel to give a refund. The wedding will be happening later this year, but I will be finding a different hotel to stay at in Iowa. Very disappointed.

"Very disappointed in your lack of reply on my phone call regarding wanting a refund."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I phoned that due to the Corona virus we were unable to come, The wedding was cancelled and will be rescheduled. I was requesting a refund, but received no reply. Am very unhappy happy regarding this so will never use a Hampton Inn and will certainly let my friends and family know. We would have come but due to the virus was house bound.

"Couldn’t sleep due to noise from floor above us."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Notified front desk of the noise on floor above us and nothing was done. I have not heard from the manager. I spent over $200 a night to be kept up all night from constant stomping on floors and then woke up at 5am from the same thing. The whole point of staying at a nicer hotel is to get quality rest. I would expect to be fully compensated for this!

Loved our stay at the Hampton Inn in Iowa City. The front desk staff and breakfast staff were friendly and helpful. The bed was fabulous and bathroom nice with lots of space. Little dirty in the corners of the room and bathroom, but overall pretty clean.

"Thanks for the feedback. I will definitely use your site in the future. This was my first time setting up a conference for a government agency so I have learned a lot. By having the hotels bid for business or at least advise if they could accommodate was a HUGE time saver. I started by throwing darts at hotels in certain locations and cold calling them before I found your website! I really appreciate yours and the teams help." C.B. - Denver, CO
