IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: The Jingle Cross was scheduled nearly a year in advance for the weekend of October 15-17, 2021, the bye weekend for the Iowa Hawkeye football season…at least it was the bye weekend initially. We used every favor we could to get that weekend. But as fate would have it, University of Iowa Athletic Director Gary Barta, the Iowa Hawkeyes, and the Big Ten changed their football schedule after our dates were solidified and unmovable and put Homecoming on our weekend. Yup, the elephant in the room sat on us and we cannot change dates. As you can imagine, this unexpected move escalated the hotel prices through the roof. But we have solutions. We have several hotels just a little outside Iowa City all within a 20-25 minute drive of the Jingle Cross venue. These include hotels near the Eastern Iowa Airport, on the southern end of Cedar Rapids and in neighboring towns off I-80. This list contains hotels who know about our situation and have expressed interest in helping keep the rates reasonable for cycling fans. It will be updated frequently and we are constantly on the lookout for good rates for our guests. We may not be able to keep it fully up to date every day but we will do the best we can. We recommend to watch KAYAK or other comprehensive hotel search engines frequently.

The following hotels have reasonable rates and are a short distance (less than 25 minute drive) to the Jingle Cross Festival. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND TO MAKE YOUR HOTEL RESERVATIONS EARLY. We also recommend to use comprehensive search engines such as KAYAK to find the best rates. We will periodically update this page with NEW hotel information whenever we can so please check back often. The rate information is subject to change.
