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

Hey its a normal Comfort Inn. They had rooms when it seemed like everything else in town was full. Not my first choice but it was ok for one night. Next to the Interstate and could hear the road noise somewhat. Not much to say since I was only in the room for 6 hours. Staff person was pleasant and... More

The motel is OK but wouldn't stay again. The location is good, it does have a pool and breakfast, and it isn't filthy. But the entire place smells musty, floors were sticky, rooms not that clean, and pool area needs maintenance. Desk attendant at check-in was not very friendly or approachable. There are several nicer hotels in the area for... More
