4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed for three nights in early July. Nice common space-lobby, pool, outside courtyard. Dove nest with baby doves in tiny cluster of trees in front of lounge chairs. Rooms were smallish- king bed and sleeper sofa was tight. Pool was warm and indoors.

We have stayed here before and liked it fine. They must have gotten new beds though since our last visit! They are like a cloud - so comfy!! Slept like a baby...Highly recommend it. Also got a good price. Appreciated that as we travel a lot.

I recently stayed here on a business trip. The rooms are very spacious and the beds are very comfortable. Check in was a breeze and everyone at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The walk in shower in the bathroom was wonderful, great water pressure for a hotel. I had breakfast at the food counter in the lobby.... More

I want to share our most recent experience while staying at the Ct. Yd. in Ankeny, Iowa. The hotel is very, very clean and very nicely appointed with comfort wherever you are in this hotel. The Bistro has excellent food and drinks and is nicely arranged for either a social setting or a business meeting. Staff is well trained and... More

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! !
