    « Felt like I stepped back into the 70s.'s not a good thing. »

    I really didn't care for this hotel. Everything about the common spaces was very dated and stale. We didn't stay in the main building, rather we stayed in the smaller building with the pool. That foyer area with a pool table and some tables and chairs had a lousy vibe and felt very old. The hot tub wasn't hot, and the sauna had a window that opened, causing kids to hang out inside like it was a warm little fort. There was a lounge in our building that served cocktails and food. Not real impressed with the meal. Breakfast was a typical substandard affair with rubbery eggs and weak coffee. Really the only bright side was the room which was clean and somewhat updated. All in all, this was a place that I was happy to say "goodbye" to.

    « Great breakfast! »

    Breakfast buffet was included, and it was delicious. They had REAL eggs and sausage-no powered and fake stuff. Pastries and cereals, breads and juices. Hand made French toast blew us away. Great value and very clean. Staff were all friendly and the price was fair.

    « Very good choice. »

    The hotel is very clean and well kept and provide an enjoyable stay and I worked both shifts during my stay and was comfortable sleeping on either shift at the hotel. I have stay here on and off since 2001 and over the years they have made positive improvements and do not even think of different options to stay at.

    « Big spread - lots of walking, several plusses, several minuses. »

    Hotel is very spread out from lobby to amenity rooms. We were in an accessible room in the same building as the pools, atrium, breakfast area. Long walks to Lobby, restaurant, and function rooms. Has grown like Topsy on hillsides. Not enough elevators. Very few level parking spaces - even for HDCP spaces. Very supportive staff, but facilities are old. Clean and spacious. Great pocket door to HDCP bath with great shower, but too low toilet and dangerously smooth tile floor. Very spacious room, with nice beds, TV, closet, etc. Reasonable rates, but I'll try for better package next trip.

    « Special Kudos...... »

    Clean rooms, food very good in longbranch restaurant. All help couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Special Kudos to Sarah at front desk. We were in a bind to get to a family wedding and she went out of her way to arrange for transportation for us. Thanks to Sarah & Albert for getting us there.

    « Best Western Longbranch »

    Overall a very good experience. I was pleasantly surprised.The room was very comfortable with ample roominess. It didn't feel cramped at all. The breakfast they offer has a fairly good selection of hot and cold items. Lots of shopping and dining nearby.

    « Conference in CR »

    Best Western Longbranch offered great customer service. Room was comfortable and clean. Location was perfect for my conference and meeting the night before. Breakfast had many choices and was delicious. Wished I could have stayed longer to take advantage of pool, fitness room, restaurant and lounge. Express checkout was a convenient option. The next time I am in town, I will definitely stay at the Longbranch again!

    « Clean, pleasant, quiet, up to date building, friendly helpful staff »

    This hotel is clean, rooms and lobby are pleasant, parking is good and the staff is helpful and friendly. It was quiet during my Monday to Saturday stay, which was n ce, I was working odd hours. The hotel is located a block off the main drag, which contributes to the quiet atmosphere. There are a number of restaurants and stores nearby. There is a surprisingly (at least to me) large number of craft brew operations in the area. When I am back in the area I will come back to this hotel

    « Travel Stop and Sightseeing »

    Wonderful place to stop when traveling. Little on the high price side, but the convenience of an on sight restaurant with a seperate lounge, swimming pool, fitness room, and Saturday night karaoke helps to overlook the cost. Staff is very friendly and rooms are clean and modern. Try to avoid the back building if you have walking disabilities as the slant of the parking lot is very hard to maneuver with a cane, wheelchair, or scooter but if you have someone to assist you, it is possible.

    « Good enough »

    Great price, nice room...not clean to average expectations. trash left in kitchen from previous people. Master bath, has had a suite, was dirty. Dried urine spots and pubic hair noted upon our arrival. From previous persons as we had not used the facilities yet.

    « Tricky to find but nice folks »

    If I had not been a little bit familiar with CR this hotel would have been tricky to find. Hard to tell what is the front and the back door as well. It had all the basics and was clean, comfortable and convenient to stores of all kinds. The hallways were dark; it was close to a residential area so comfortable places to walk the pooch who was welcome at this hotel. Lobby was small but nicely appointed. Met a friend I had not seen in years and it was an easy place to sit and chat.

    « Third time's a charm! »

    This was the third time we have stayed at this hotel in three years. We come here on business every August. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. The breakfast is not fancy but still good. The breakfast is served in a building that is not in the Main building but there is a hallway and a skywalk to get there so it is not like you have to go outside to get there...Just a nice morning walk. See you again next August!

    « Bestwestern Longbranch »

    This hotel was very clean and fresh with lots of updates. New beds were very comfortable. Property was recently updated and very friendly staff. Great location with shopping and restaurants within walking distance.

    « Great Experience »

    The staff was great getting me settled. I was a very late arrival. Great room and the nicest bath, shower I have ever seen in a Hotel. Great layout of the Hotel and I loved the Breakfast area. Thank you very much for the great nights stay.

    « Very nice room and agreat breakfast .. we loved our stay »

    A very nice clean hotel and restaurant and facilities. they have a pool excercise room and all the amenities. loved our stay and plan to use this hotel again. we had a very delicious breakfast, I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in the area of Cedar Rapids, we visit our daughter in Marion, convenient location.

    « Different in a good way »

    Stayed here one evening while traveling. The room was very nice, clean and comfortable. We were in a separate but connected building. The building we were in had its own bar and restaurant where food could be ordered from the main restaurant. The food was good and the location convenient. The room rates were good also. The was a very nice pool and rec area attached. We would definitely stay again. There was a very large parking area.

    « Thanks »

    Stay at the Long Branch ! Very clean,good food,nice room,good price.Every thing one needs to have a great time ! As close to home as possible.I've had "free" breakfast at nice hotels before as I have traveled much,the Long Branch had the Best !

    « Very good considering.......... »

    The location is great, the staff are great, restaurant and bar are a very popular spot for locals- which says a lot. Building is strange and very dated - considering the limited options in Cedar Rapids I would gladly come back here. The restaurant, bar, and location out weigh the dated old building.

    « Fantastic weekend »

    My wife and I traveled from Cincinnati, Oh to attend a family reunion centered in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Our accommodations at the Best Western Plus Longbranch could not have been better. The rooms were clean, spacious, with plenty of closet space. Accessing their other amenities could not have been easier with the skywalk or other enclosed walkways connecting the pool, full gym, whirlpool and three attached restaurants. The free breakfast was ample with a large selection. Convenient to shopping, movies and other entertainment could not have been better. Am sad there are only 5 stars to rate the establishment. With Jen and Beth helping at the front desk, there should be 10 stars! Thank you for the stay.

    « Nice place to stay »

    Pros Helpful staff, great breakfast, great workout facility, nice bed Cons Older facility, shower had a couple of hairs in it, price was a little higher than what I would expect for this particular rating of hotel. Thought it was summer rate and hotel would be full, but that is not the case.

    « Cedar Rapids »

    The hotel and room were very clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and professional. I particularly enjoyed the fitness center, as it is actually a pretty well equipped athletic club, much better than the usual minimally equipped fitness center normally found in hotels. The breakfast was pretty good.


    This is listed as a 3 star hotel on Priceline for $81 a night. Drove up and new I was in trouble. The buildings are old and the hallways smelled. The rooms have update floors but old furniture. It was so depressing I paid another $80 to stay at the renovated La Quinta. I do not know the people who have given this a good rating. Stay away until renovated.

    « five stars »

    the only complaint that i have is that they charged us 24 dollars for breakfast in bed. we ordered a couple eggs and pancakes. We got married and had our wedding reception in the ballroom, and it was beautiful. I would recommend this venue.

    « A place to stay »

    On a cross country trip to the west coast and need a place to stay. This hotel was clean, staff friendly, and helpful, room was not small and a free breakfast. The feel of the place is hotel in a rural town that has local entertainment. If you are looking for a luxury hotel this is not it. But it is a great place for a night as you travel.

    « Excellent facilities »

    We had a great time at the Cedar Rapids Best Western. Breakfast was outstanding, they have a cook that keeps the fresh food coming until 10 am. Variety and quality was fantastic. Rates were very competitive, facilities were in great shape. The staff was polite and helpful.

    « Over-rated »

    I booked a night here as an Express Deal on Priceline. Hotel was described as comparable to more upscale chains, so when Best Western popped up as the result I thought we overpaid. Then I read the reviews and thought this hotel would be the exception to the lower-budget Best Westerns I've stayed in--it was not. Room had bizarre odor, pool area was not well-maintained and adjacent gaming area had the feel of a 70's lounge. The worst part, our room was in a separate building that had a locked door with no key entry when it was still light out... so a huge inconvenience when we were parked right by that entrance. Do not spend more than $60 plus tax or you'll regret it.

    « Great Hotel »

    This is a Great Hotel to stay at.. If you have to stay in the area, pick this Hotel. I stay at no other Hotel than this one, the Lounge has great buffet at a ridiculously low price. It is quiet, and comfortable to make my long stays more reasonable.

    « experience »

    enjoyable all around and I would come back here again if need be. I even got to sing at the Karaoke bar which was a first time experience. My boyfriend and I loved the fact that everyone treated us like we were their only customers. thanks so much

    « Clean »

    Room was clean and comfortable with a nice breakfast buffet, however, depending on the location of room it may be tricky to find the first time. Friendly staff and a fun decor. A bit off the highway, but that makes the place a bit more quiet for a restful nights sleep. My room was large so lots of room to move around.

    « Very Satisfied Customer »

    Very Helpful and curteous Staff. I travel to the Cedar Rapids area on a weekly basis and I have enjoyed my stay at the Best Western Long Branch. The Attached restaurant is convenient and the they offer reasonably priced dinners. They have a wide range of items on the menu. The Complimentary Breakfast offers hot and cold options and is always fresh. I would recommend this Hotel to anyone traveling for business or Pleasure.

    « Great Place to Stay »

    I have stayed at the Best Western Long Branch hotel for the past 6 years and have never had a bad night's stay. The professionalism of the staff for the hotel branch is great. The amenities the hotel has to offer from two lounges to a restaurant that has some of the best meals in the Cedar Rapids area is just a couple of examples of why I love to stay here. I have traveled for business for the past 25 years and have stayed at many hotels, the Best Western Longbranch is the best hotel for total accommodation's that I have stayed at.

    « Clean and friendly »

    This hotel met our needs. It was very clean and the staff was super friendly. It is dog friendly as well! We were a little surprised by the location when we pulled up. It isn't in the best part of town. The breakfast and pool area is in anther building and they have a skywalk connecting the two.

    « overall good stay but some improvement could be... »

    they should update their bedding and enlarge the bathrooms. The breakfast was excellent. I plan to stay here again, The staff was very friendly and professional.This is all I care to say about this stay but this review requires 200 characters so here it is.

    « Great Hotel »

    If you are every in the Cedar rapids area this is the place to stay. rooms are GREAT and the food is awesome, plus with the very reasonable buffet that they have every night it is the place to be. Easy to find, and easy parking area

    « You Will Love It!! »

    This hotel is in an ideal location. There are not too many other nice hotels in the immediate area. There are two main buildings. The back building is newer, is away from road traffic, and has an atrium. Ask for it. There is an indoor swimming pool, a foos ball table, a billiards table, a bar, as well as breakfast area. It has 4 floors. There is plenty of shopping and restaurants within walking distance if preferred.

    « Longbranch, Cedar Rapids »

    Very clean hotel with all the amenities you could ask for. Best breakfast bar I have seen in quite a while, quality and variety of breakfast items were very good. The staff were very helpful and friendly, treated you as a guest, not as just another room filler.

    « Terrific experience »

    Totally positive experience. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and attractive and the bar and restaurant are first-class. It was convenient to my meeting site and located near everything I needed for a great stay.

    « great stay! »

    Room was modern and very clean, nicely decorated. complimentary breakfast was good with may choices including fresh fruit. Nice pool area with an area for socializing. great location with plenty of parking.

    « Fitness Center »

    The fitness center looked great. However, the hours of operation on the weekend made it impossible for us to use it.. The hotel was fine for a quick stay. Friendly staff, housekeeping prompt. and responsible.

    « Stayed from Feb 19-21/16 »

    Good quality and great service. They need to pay attention to detail, especially when cleaning. Staff were friendly and helpful. Beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was of good quality. Did not use the pool but it looked fantastic and others seemed to be enjoying it. Used conference room - staff were accommodating when setting up. Overall, a Good stay. We were there to attend a funeral. Bereavement rate could have been better.

    The Best Western Longbranch Hotel is a wonderful, friendly place to stay or to just stop by with family and friends for relaxing dinning and fellowship.The dinning area is lovely with helpful and friendly service.If you prefer a more lively atmosphere you can always visit the lounge.The large TV's will provide you with the latest sports events, and the small stage for musical entertainment.Overall a great place to visit.

    « nice place to stay »

    very nice location, near restaurants and shopping. hotel has a restaurant but I didn't eat there. breakfast was good and had variety. there was coffee and apples in the lobby too. ask for a room away from the breakfast area if you don't like noise

    « Great Service »

    We stayed at the hotel for my sisters party and the staff was friendly and upgraded us for no extra cost to a bigger room. The beds were very comfortable and the complimentary breakfast was warm and good.

    « Hotel stay »

    Five of us stayed at this hotel due to a conference we attended at the hotel. We were very satisfied with the staff and hotel. Staff was very nice and rooms were clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend this hotel for business and pleasure.

    « Long Branch Best Western »

    Great staff and service. Food is very good and always fresh. Hotel is very clean and neat. Best feature is the staff at checking in & out as well as the restaurant and bar staff. I recommend this hotel.

    « Longbranch »

    This place is one of the best values I've ever received at a hotel. 2 lounges, one full service restaurant (we had $3 all you can eat wings at one of them). It was amazing the ammenaties we got for the money we paid. The breakfast was the best hotel breakfast I've had in years.

    « Great Hotel for the Price »

    Always clean rooms and pool area, great food in the pool bar area, big pool/spa/sauna. Game room is nice and by the pool/bar. Decent breakfast. Location is great - near Mall, Trampoline park, restuarants, etc.

    « Longbranch is the place to stay »

    If you are traveling to Cedar Rapids I would highly recommend staying at the Longbranch Best Western. It has everything you need from a pool, to fitness, to food, and a good nights sleep. A five star rating from me.

    « Wow what a great family hotel! »

    Hidden gem is right! Clean, remodeled ,comfortable beds, beautiful bathroom. Huge warm indoor pool, sauna&whirlpool. So quiet,we thought we were one of few guests until breakfast which was buzzing with several guests filling up on eggs, toast, bacon, fruit, yogurt, French toast, cereal, multiple drinks, awesome! Just a great atmosphere, homey, plenty of space and tables and t.v.s around a bar. Loved this place! So uniquely beautiful.

    « Decent Hotel for Cheap »

    I booked this hotel using rewards points that I had built up from work. The booking process was easy like always. When we got to town and checked in the staff was very helpful. We ended up in a suite which is attached to the main building by a skywalk. The suite had a lot of space and was very clean, but it could use some updating and had a bit of a musty smell. The internet worked well and the beds were comfortable. In the morning we took the skywalk to the breakfast area which is next to the pool. The breakfast area was clean and well laid out. The breakfast was pretty good and the pool was very nice. Check out went smoothly and I would stay at the hotel again when in the area.

    Lots of shopping in the area with comfortable surrounding. Great place for business or personal. Love its close to a mall , theater, and local food. One of few remaking happy joes restaurants with in walking distance. Scrapmania scrapbooking store with items you can't find in the chain stores is just down the street.

    « Wonderful place to stay »

    This hotel is an unfound gem. We chose this hotel because we were unhappy with another hotel we had been staying at during our trips to this area for several years. We were surprised at how wonderful it was. The check in process was quick and staff is wonderful, even the staff members you happen to pass in the hall or outside always had a friendly hello, or a how are you today, or can I help you with anything. The room was spotlessly clean and fresh smelling. Room had plenty of space and every ammenity needed, including high end shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion. I have back problems and some other pain issues, the bed was extremely comfortable and I slept better than I have in years. I wanted to take it home with me. Unfortunately due to the delightful sleep we had we missed the continental breakfast but I heard it's great, we will not miss it again. We had 2 of our grandchildren with us the first night. We took them swimming and in the hot tub, and the sauna (or hot house) as they called it. A lot of fun was had. We did order an pizza and soft drinks by room service. Pizza was great and done just the way we asked. Makes me think that the rest of the food in the restaraunt is just as good. We go to Iowa often because our son and his family live there and will be staying at the Best Western from now on. We signed up for their frequent visitor program and received points for this stay. When we travel from now on we will also look for Best Westerns to stay at.

    « Consistently clean and comfortable »

    My family has stayed here many times, as my son is a college student in a nearby town. The rooms and common areas are clean. The pool area is well-maintained. Breakfast is wonderful, with cereals, rolls, fresh fruit, and several hot choices daily. Don't let the strange exterior influence your attitude about this hotel. It is a bit unconventional, but you will not be disappointed. Well worth the rate of $100-125/night.

    « Quick stop »

    Stopped in for a one night stay. The hotel is a great place to stay. Everything was in good order, staff was comfortable to interact with. There is a lot to do in this area and this is a great hotel to stay in while you are in town.

    « A very eclectic hotel »

    I enjoyed my stay here but it's a very off layout. To get to breakfast or the gym, you need to go up to the 4th floor and take the skywalk and then down 2 floors. Kind of a pain when you like to have breakfast in your room. The fitness center was great- a real gym! Bonus! I could control the temperature in the meeting room which was great for our small group. I enjoyed the apples they had out. Monday is $3 burger night in the restaurant. Delicious!

    « Great place to stay! »

    Excellent service and quality of room. My family really enjoyed the pool and having dinner at the Saturday night Buffet. I would recommend this motel for the convenience and quality of having a nice room, pool, and dinner just a short walk from the room.

    « Training Trip »

    very nice place.. ill recommend to all my friends and co-workers. Nice convention rooms. Rooms are clean beds are wonderful. Staff very friendly and helpful. Close to shopping and places to eat. They have a very large excercis faciality on sight place resterant on sight. So if you are heading in this direction you need to stay here...

    « Accommodating and accessible. »

    Both checking in and checking out were pleasant experiences with friendly staff. The rooms were spacious. We had an accessible room and it was especially roomy for a wheelchair. My mother also appreciated the sliding door for the bathroom, the roll in shower, and night lights. Also included are refrigerators and microwaves. The breakfast is very nice and reminds me of an Embassy suites with lots of hot food choices. We didn't take advantage of all the hotel had to offer but there was plenty: bar with music, restaurant, exercise room, pool, and beautiful hiking paths out back. Great location, too.

    « Room Review »

    I would recommend this hotel to anyone. We checked in and were greeted with a smile, our room was located in an excellent area. The rooms were neat and clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

    « Berst Western - Longbranch Convention Center »

    « Definately a different property, in a good way »

    The property is laid out strangely. It is quite a walk to the lobby and the restaurants. The work out center is in a whole different building. Now this should not be a turn off. It is very neat and the buffet that we had on Saturday night was great and very reasonable. It is a quiet hotel. The staff is great. The only problem was that they did not clean our room the next day? They left clean towels but that is all, did not fill coffee or change bedding. I am confused at that but normally we opt out for the changing of the sheets when we only stay 2 nights. It helps out with the environment so I really didn't mind, but I did bring it to their attention. They were very apologetic. I would definitely stay here again. The bed was so comfortable. The food was great and the staff very friendly. DO not judge by the outside of the hotel. It looks old, but the inside is very nice!

    « Business Trip with my Wife »

    My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. We were only there 1 night but it was great. The employees are extremely customer service focused. The woman at the front desk and the one in the breakfast area were super friendly, professional and professional. We did not get a chance to workout or go in the pool but both looked like they were top notch. I travel often and rarely see free weights in fitness center. The breakfast was the BEST!!! We were given a room upgrade. Everything was great. We will definitely stay here again. I have stayed in some upscale hotels and this one felt just as great and for a lot cheaper. We did not try the restaurant but it looked great as well. The bed was so cumfy!!! I can't say enough about this hotel.

    « Comfortable Beds, Good Breakfast »

    Great things - Beds were extremely comfortable and breakfast tasted great. Breakfast selection was good, but I would have liked to see more hot choices like hash browns. Helpful, respectful staff. Hotel theme and décor is was great. Excellent fitness room - wish I had it in my town! Minor issues - bathtub had some hair in it and shower head barely worked

    « Best Western Long Branch »

    Overall this hotel property has a lot to offer guests. If you are hosting an event it is a MUST to look at. The space is great and well kept and up to date. The staff at the lounge and restaurant was very helpful and nice. The long walk between buildings could pose a problem for families with little ones or elderly. The security should be updated, new key slots for the outside doors, and the windows you could unlatch and jump right out of it you really wanted to. Plus it is kind of located in a shady apartment complex area so security should be heightened. The Sunday Brunch is fantastic, if you enjoy a large brunch with lots of choices, and for what you get the price is fair. I would stay at the LongBranch again but the pool area needs WORK! LOTS OF WORK...The Gold Zone Cafe was a great additional feature though.

    « Excellent stay for family wedding »

    Stayed at this hotel with extended family for family wedding. Beautiful, comfortable and safe. Nice ameneties, good breakfast. Area around the hotel also has nice restaurants, shopping and movie theatre.

    « Awesome! »

    Stayed here for a family wedding. Older hotel that had been recently remodeled. Comfortable, affordable and staff was nice. Close to everything. Lots of restaurants and shopping. The only complaint......low water pressure, however , I found this problem throughout the state of Iowa.

    « everything was just easy »

    breakfast was a treat, check-in was easy, everyone was nice, and the room was comfy and quiet, and the $3 meals in the lounge are a real steal. The hotel is different from any other I've stayed in, and it was close to everything. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, and I will be staying again. If I had -anything- bad to say, it's that the shower pressure isn't the best, but otherwise, this place is a must-try.

    « Love the ammenities »

    For the traveler who uses the gym, restaurant, and pool, this place is excellent. Older hotel so you wouldn't know it from the outside. They are remodeling to freshen up the look inside. Biggest gym at a hotel I've stayed at, as a 5 day/month traveler. Restaurant had very wide variety menu. Good location to freeway and easy access to downtown. Price was very fair. Will stay there again.

    « skip this one »

    very dated, pictures online looked great, deceiving! Musty rooms, didn't even turn on air the first night because of the smell. Cleaned the filter in my sink and it was better. Lumpy pillows and bad breakfast and coffee. We had a tiny bathroom with bad lighting and bad water pressure, although a friend said here bathroom was a walk-in shower(no bath). The only good thing about this hotel was being there with our friends and free wi-fi. Don't expect to bring in your own food or drinks, it's against their policy. You must buy at their bar(poor) or restaurant(did not go).

    « Great Hotel »

    We always have a great time here and pleasant stay. The food in the hotel is very good; it is also close to many other restaurant options. There is shopping in the area as well. The whole family loves the pool & hot tub as well as the gaming area.

    « Nice room »

    The room was nice and clean, bathroom was clean as well. Terrible water pressure in the shower though, but that is not unusual in hotels anymore. Beds were very comfortable and the free breakfast was pretty good too. The location was not ideal and the hotel was very difficult to find as it was hidden behind a strip mall.

    « Always Great Service!! »

    I have had the pleasure to stay at the Longbranch 3-4 times over the last 3 years. The Service has always been exceptional! There is a restaurant/bar on premises that has specials during the week like taco bar on Wednesdays (awesome) and wings on Thursdays. The pool was heated-and I mean it was warm enough to swim in! Whirlpool is huge-open until 10:30. There is also a pool table, couple of video games and a fitness area that is very nice! You can get breakfast cooked to order(minimal $)-or do the buffet for no charge-although please remember to leave a tip for wait staff Loretta at the front desk is my favorite lady at the front desk who has been tolerant of my requests and anticipates my needs almost before I ask. All of the staff at the Longbranch is GREAT! The facility is clean through and through-absolutely no issues with the room or anywhere in the hotel!
