My husband and I won a nights stay here in a silent auction and decided to spend our 20th anniversary at the inn. We could not have been happier with our stay. We live about an hour from Iowa City which made the trip perfect for a fall motorcycle ride. While chatting with Mark the inn keeeper we discovery that he grew up not far from where we call home and we know many of the same people. The entire stay was very relaxing and they really make you feel at home. Hope to visit again real soon.

We picked this inn out of many other reviewed B&Bs and were not disappointed. It is very tastefully decorated both downstairs and in the bedrooms. The host was very welcoming, friendly and knowlegeable about Iowa City. We had a small refrigerator in our room and soft drinks and also access to teas and coffee. The breakfast was continental style with wonderful homemade pastries, breads, granola fruit and hardboiled eggs. The B&B location is close to downtown and the house where Kurt Vonnegut stayed while at the U of I is next door. There is parking behind the house and on the street.

We've stayed at Brown St Inn now twice and have had a wonderful experience both times. Mark is the perfect host - helpful, present and attentive, and fun to visit with! The Inn is impeccably clean and breakfast is always delicious. We highly recommend Brown St Inn.

Returning to Iowa City for a reunion with old college friends, we were so pleased to find the Brown Street Inn as our home away from home. The Innkeepers are fabulous, not intrusive, but always ready to provide directions, suggestions on dining options or just sharing their knowledge of Iowa City history. The house is impeccable. Spotlessly clean, elegantly decorated and completely welcoming. Breakfast during the week was just what we wanted, healthy, flavorful and fresh. On the weekend we were dazzled with unique creative breakfasts freshly made and served with perfection. We have stayed in many B & Bs around the US and Europe and this was by far one of the top 5. You can not do any better.
