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.

I spent several months traveling to the area on business. I had an opportunity to stay in several different hotels in the area, but ultimately, routinely settled on the Courtyard in Ankeny. This hotel provided the best balance of cost, comfort, and convient location. The staff was always very professional, friendly, and curtious (as is a typical Marriott Courtyard, in... More

We have stayed here several times for our daughter's AAU tournaments in the area. Very nice location and helpful staff. Highly recommend it. Breakfast was good. We received a half off coupon for breakfast.
