I am a frequent business traveler to Ankeny, IA and highly recommend this Courtyard hotel. The rooms are always clean, the breakfast is better than you would expect from an affordable hotel and they even have a small gym open 24 hours. Another positive is that the water pressure is great and the rooms are very spacious. Nearby, you will... More

We stayed 2nights for my son's basketball tournament. The hotel was full of teenage girls for a softball tourney. The staff were great to work with and was upgraded because we needed 2 beds and there weren't any rooms with 2 beds available the second night of our stay. The front desk person offered to upgrade, which of course, happily... More

I stay at this hotel quite often. It has ample parking and the staff is always friendly. During the last year, they changed their dining area into a bistro of sorts serving Starbucks coffee. Although the ambiance is okay, the prices have gone up a bit. If you want something more than a few drinks - go someplace else as... More

Dear DaveofSpencer, We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the changes that have been made in our Bistro. Having Starbucks in the Bistro eliminates the option of having free coffee in the lobby, but we have had great feedback from guests who enjoy the variety of drinks available at Starbucks. We are thrilled to hear that you... More

I stayed for work and found it very quiet and the bed was comfortable. Everyone was super friendly. It's located near the business park. Close drive to area resturants and bars. The breakfast was delicious. Made to order. They even had Starbucks! !

Hotel was immaculately clean, front desk staff cheerful, helpful and professional. Bistro waitress Cathy was professional, efficient and did a great job. The rooms are nice, cheerful and comfortable. The hotel is located convenient to the airport. Also computers convenient and available to hotel guests. This is the place for business or vacation travel.

I was traveling with my husband, parents, and daughter on our way across the Midwest last week. We got off to a late start and didn't arrive to the hotel till around 11pm. At check in, the receptionist took the time to make sure we had what we needed. Even at this late hour, when we asked about a roll-away,... More

We chose this hotel for a family function in town. The Bistro was great for a drink in the evening as well as for breakfast in the morning - the choices are much better than a traditional hotel breakfast. The pool is smaller, but my younger daughter enjoyed it because she could touch on both ends. The staff was excellent... More
