The front desk employees on day shift were excellent, but night shift desk clerk wasn't friendly at all. Made service was terrible. We stayed there for 11 nights and after 8 days I had to ask front desk how often they changed sheets. I was told every 3 days. When I said that ours weren't changed in 8 days, they... More

The room was just ok, stains on the carpet and ottoman. I drink decaf coffee and there was none both mornings we were there, so asked for them to make some and it was luke warm. However, the most important reason I would not stay there is, the desk attendant, who was young, female, short hair was the rudest person.... More

We had 7 rooms for an ISU graduation weekend. Excellent advance planning with hotel. Extra effort on their part to meet our room requirements. The hotel is easy to access off I-35 exit 90, next to a Casey's gas station. Across the interstate is plentiful shopping and eating: Kohls, Sportsmen Warehouse, Panera, Starbucks, even a party store to stock up... More

Big plus for me is that the bathroom sink area is separate from the toilet and shower. All hotels should be that way. The Continental breakfast was very good! Dim lighting in the bathroom sink area and no bath fan. Our room did have a sewer smell, not sure why, but it was the first room off the lobby. We... More

Mitchiedoo Thank you for reviewing us on Trip Advisor, your comments are very important to us. I am hoping to update our lighting in the future. I am terribly sorry about the odor and am not sure what could have caused it. We have not had the issue since but if it happens again we will immediately contact a plumber.... More

This hotel is really lovely. Our room was in a corner and was very large. The decor is modern and it was clean and tidy. The front desk staff was very nice and even ran upstairs to make sure our room was ready as we were a few minutes early for check in time. One warning, there is no elevator... More

This is an affordable, quality service facility just minutes from downtown Des Moines and an excellent value for the regular traveler or business person with the necessary amenities as well for families.

This is a great location and our 1st stay here was good with front desk staff being very welcoming and friendly, but our 2nd stay was disappointing. Desk staff might have been having a bad day, and if so, it showed....She clearly seemed annoyed that my 6 yr. old grandson reached up and rang the bell on the counter while... More

I would stay here again! Warm cookies upon arrival. Cozy, homey atmosphere. Friendly staff. Comfortable room. The only recommendation I would have is to improve the lighting by the sink/mirror for getting ready in the morning.
