Hot! It’s like the air conditioning was turned off
This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the Graduate in Iowa City. We love the location and friendly staff, but both times we woke up sweating in the middle of the night. We were unable to adjust the thermostat and could not sleep through the night due to the heat.

There was an awful mildew smell on the floor we stayed at. The AC unit was so loud it was difficult to sleep and it didn’t cool the room to the set temperature.
