Good hotel we stay here every Christmas bringing in family from Missouri, Minnesota and Texas. This was probably the 10th year. Only suggestion would be to order sunny weather and 80 degrees, but that would be June. Maybe we should reschedule.

Very clean and large room. Traveling with my elderly mother, so they did put us in handicap room, which was very large & on ground floor. They did not have elevator, but we were accommodated. Senior rate was even better than published rate. Very quiet and nice pool. Internet service did drop occasionally in evening, but worked fine on the... More

Front desk staff were very friendly and check in went fast. The room was neat and clean. I liked the block out curtains. The breakfast area was clean and there was a very good selection, hot as well as cold. The location was an easy on and off of the highway and just down the road from relatives we were... More

The help staff was efficient at checkin. The rooms appeared newly remodeled, everything worked. The bed was comfortable. Wireless was fast and there was no password, which is efficient. Just don't enter any critical info. Checkout was quick with the bill prepared in advance. Only one small constructive comment, why are the towels so scratchy? Not that that's uncommon in... More

Staying at your hotel was a great experience. Very clean and comfortable. The breakfast area is well maintained. You can get the same here as you can with the other more expensive national brands. Thanks

Motel was extremely clean, the room we stayed in was very nice and the king size bed was very comfortable. We stayed on a Wednesday night and is was very quiet. The breakfast was nice, good biscuits and gravy and pretty much the usual breakfast venue. People at the desk were very friendly and helpful.

I had a room with a king-size bed. It was a very well appointed room. Comfortable bed, clean spacious room with a desk free wi-fi and lounge chair. While there, I also spent some time in the hot tub and pool -- clean and well maintained. Complimentary breakfast is adequate. The staff was very hospitable. I would definitely choose to... More

We were in Des Moines for a very special car show on Saturday and Sunday and did not want to stay there for the Monday A.M. traffic rush, but did not want to drive over 4 hours home either. Our day ended rather late on Sunday so I decided Ankeny was a great choice. I based my decision on other... More

The breakfast they have is so much better than any hotel I've been at. The rooms are very nice and well kept. The pool and hot tub are very nice. The workout room is a joke. There are only two machines in the room. Overall great stay.

Dear Guest, Thank you for reviewing us, we appreciate you kind words. I am sorry that we have a small workout room. They did not provide us with a large area when the hotel was built. They did give us a good large hot tub though. I hope we will see you in the future. Thank you. Julie Wright GM More
