Stay at the House
The Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City provides support and comfortable accommodations for families so they can stay close to their child receiving medical treatment.
To be eligible to stay, families must live at least 20 miles away and have a child age 21 or younger in medical care. Once a guest, families may stay until their child is discharged from the hospital. Because of this, we cannot guarantee room reservations in advance as families do not always know when they will be leaving. In lieu of room reservations, families are placed on the Request to Stay list and given a room based on daily availability.
How to Stay
Requesting a room at the Ronald McDonald House is easy. Simply follow the steps below:
- Call the registration desk at 319-356-3939 to place your family’s name on the Request to Stay list on the date needed.
- Staff will call your family back on the requested date if a room is available.
- If our House is full, RMH staff can assist you in securing a local hotel room at a discounted rate, until space becomes available at the House.
- Families who stay at the Ronald McDonald House may choose to give a donation of $15/night for a standard room or $20/night for a family suite. However, no family is turned away from a room due to an inability to pay for their stay.
