This HI Express is in a beautiful location along the river and thanks to its location, feels slower-paced and not crowded. As the reviewer before noted, June is a bad time for the river bugs (think Mayflies). If you do pony up the extra cash for the river view rooms, I'd recommend calling ahead to see if it's bug season. For us, the room rate was very reasonable for the time of year and location.
The hotel itself is newer and is in good condition and follows the HI Express "model". Our room was on the third floor (out of three floors) and faced the road and railroad tracks. The train was noticeable going by when we were awake and not too noticeable overnight (no horns, thankfully). The king sized room we had was nice, but lacked a refridgerator that I wish we could have had. Bathroom was in good condition and had the standard (and personal favorite) HI Express showerhead.
Location is easy to access right off of the interstate and is near the Iowa Tourist Office. Across the street is a McDonalds and just down the road is the shop for TV show American Pickers. There are not many restaurants in the immediate area, but a short drive will get you into the cities or downtown Le Claire where there are some restaurants.More
