I wish that when hotels were remodeling that they would just close down for a few weeks. When I booked this hotel, I had no idea that the lobby floor was ripped out, there was equipment in the hall way that made it hard to maneuver our suitcases, and some kind of funky smell in that hallway. The desk clerks... More

We would like the apologize for the inconvenience caused by the renovations of this hotel. Unfortunately we are unable to close the hotel down for even a few days since we have prior reservations. The lobby/breakfast area are completed at the moment and we are doing only segments of the hotel at a time during hours that customers are not... More

Nothing fancy about this place. It's an older hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The common areas is where this hotel shows its age. The free breakfast had standard egg and sausage patties, waffles, cereal, juice and coffee. The beds were comfortable and the pillows were good. Clean bathrooms, but the sink was not separated from the toilet and... More

We stayed here during our state fair trip. It served its purpose & was affordable. The room was clean. The bedding - blankets & pillows were comfortable, but the bed itself needs replaced. The ac didn't seem to keep up. The bathroom is one of the smallest I've seen & is definitely not family friendly when trying to help kids... More

Greeted with " members" registration gift. Popcorn, snickers, bottled water. Had a suite, big leather recliner and leather loveseat. Flat screen tvs, mini frigerator, microwave. Huge tile bathroom. Breakfast was awesome. Scrambled eggs, sausage patties, biscuits and sausage gravy. Great place to stay.

The beds are comfy, the SHEETS ARE SO SMOOTH, and the towels are so WHITE AND FLUFFY. (they do their own laundry. The rooms are clean and there is no dirt around the edges of the carpeting.) We stay here when attending Iowa State University and meetings in Ames. Des Moines is 30 minutes away. The pool is clean and... More

Comfort Inn is supposed to be higher up in the Choice Hotel hierarchy- musty odor in all public spaces- well-used room in college town. Adequate at best. Moved to Econolodge for better featured, cleaner room on the 2nd day. Nearly empty hotel with no elevator on Christmas Eve- but still placed upstairs as far away from anything.

I regularly stay at Comfort Inns, and I was very disappointed with my experience here. I arrived at the hotel after a two-and-a-half hour drive, and the woman at the registration desk told me that there was no restroom for guest use. I did the bathroom-dance in the lobby waiting for another party to check in before it was my... More

We will probably not stay at this hotel again. Our sons room on the second floor had sticky carpet. Like pop, juice, whatever was not cleaned up. Our room had black mood growing on the baseboard in the bathroom, on the grab bar at the tub and above the bath. The breakfast was ok. I question the pool area and... More
