Stayed overnight before a business meeting in the area. It is new and very clean. Good service. The workout room was nice. The bed was comfortable. Check in and check out were easy. What else does one need in a one night hotel stay...

I've been to this property before but it's been a while. I booked the room online but made a call for a specific floor request and they were extremely helpful with this and made my request happen. The lobby was extremely nice, well maintained and the front desk staff was very welcoming and friendly. The rooms are very nice, very... More

As a Marriott platinum member, I was given a courtesy upgrade to a spacious 2-room suite the weekend I stayed here. The wide granite wet bar, contemporary seating, good wood furniture in the main room; up-to-date bath and high quality Courtyard bedding; would have been worth paying for. The Grill at this property served hot breakfast sandwiches cooked to order;... More

Spent two nights here while on business. Very friendly staff, clean facility, breakfast choices were very well thought through and tasty. Room was very user friendly, large bathroom, good work area! Would make it a point to stay here again!

I was totally not impressed with this hotel. They gave you absolutely NOTHING for free. I did get the FREE breakfast with my stay but my choices were limited to what was available (not the whole menu). No hairdryers in the rooms, wi-fi was horribly slow and there were only 2 elevators for 4 floors and 1 of those was... More

Stayed one night on way home. They gave me the military rate which was limited but was available. Saved 40 dollars otherwise would have stayed at another hotel. Well worth the price as the room was clean,comfortable and inviting. The lobby was very relaxing and the staff were all wonderful to deal with. As I travel with a service dog... More

We LOVE this hotel! It is our choice of hotels when we visit the Des Moines area. Centrally located, close to shopping and night life, the staff is always friendly and accommodating. We wouldn't stay anywhere else! Shout out to all the folks there!

My wife and I travel through Ankeny twice a year and have come to use this hotel each time. The front desk is accommodating and the room was in excellent condition. this time, the AC was a bit noisy and the breakfast staff not as friendly as we would like. but both conditions had not occurred before so this remains...

Excellent hotel. The gal at the front desk was very accommodating. We asked to be upgraded because we had my nephew with us who was the only guy in the room and he wanted a little privacy, she upgraded us and between her and the cleaning staff they had the room ready for us within 20 minutes and allowed us...

Very nice clean reasonably priced hotel with WiFi but everything else is extra. They have a restaurant and bar but selection is pricey for what you get. You are paying for convenience. We did find a decent coffee house and brewery near by (FireTrucker).
