The actual room itself was great, quiet, comfortable, laid out nice. Other parts of the hotel, well... The hot tub felt way too hot, only spent a few minutes in the water before I had to get out. Pool decking area was a smoother tile and my wife slipped on it, be aware if barefoot or have certain style footwear.... More

Let me start by saying the hotel was very nice. The single/king-bed room I stayed in for the week (Rm# 222) was great! This was the first time I'd ever been right next to the elevators, so I had very low expectations going in. In the end, outside (hall/neighbor) room noise were a minimum. There was a nice pool area,... More

The staff is very friendly and make the check-in process quick and seamless. We had a king room that had a comfortable bed, microwave, refrigerator, sofa,... More

This Courtyard by Marriott is located in a relatively new commercial development area near Des Moines conveniently close to I-35, although exiting and driving into the development is somewhat tricky. Quick reactions get you to the hotel where a friendly staff greets you. The rooms are very clean and roomy, the bed is comfortable, and the normal Marriott Courtyard quality... More

Stayed here for a week long school and while the hotel was extremely nice and comfortable, the staff went above and beyond. From gardener to receptionist the entire staff always said hello and seemed genuinely interested in how my day was going. Never been to a hotel like it before. Just awesome.

Hotel was what we expected from a Courtyard by Mariott. Staff was friendly, rooms & lobby were clean & fresh. Made reservation via telephone direct with hotel and was told there was a breakfast. Unfortunately we found out that there was a breakfast "bar" which was not included in the room price. Relatively poor selection of "starbucks-like" breakfast sandwiches, which... More

I usually stay at the Hampton Inn just up the road. However, since Hilton has gone and tried to monetize their internet by charging for "premium" I have started to move more and more business to Marriott properties. (And for other reasons!. BTW, Marriott also charges for "Faster" internet but waves the cost for Gold and above. As a Diamond,... More

Courteous and friendly front desk staff, and clean rooms. The front desk attendant greeted me every morning, every time I was in the lobby area. The lobby cafe was great. The food was always fresh and delicious. I would suggest they upgrade the pillows and mattresses. I would recommend this hotel if you're ever in Ankeny.

My son and I stayed at this hotel for a basketball tournament. Alicia Hymel went out of her way to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. I would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again if we are back in the area.
