This hotel is very quiet, the staff is very nice, and internet is fast. Pool, spa pool, and breakfast are all great. Computer access is free, and lobby is very updated and nice. I would stay here again.

I do not see why this hotel got such high marks. I stay at Fairfield Inns often and this is by far the worst one I have stayed at. The beds are hard and the squeak every time you move in them. The decor is not up to date with the other Fairfield Inns. Ants welcomed me in the bathroom.... More

We were displaced for three nights while our floors of our home were being refinished. We chose to stay at the Fairfield for two reasons 1. Proximity to the north side of town and schools. 2. A Marriott property. This hotel worked perfectly for our family of 4. We were in a 2 room queen bed suite. The room was... More

I was worried after reading one of the reviews that the internet was very slow, but I had excellent service. The place is very clean and nicely decorated. My wife thought the beds very nice. The rooms come with a refrigerator, microwave and pretty good cable service.

If you're going to advertise high speed internet please provide high speed internet. It took me half an hour to download 20 emails, none of which had attachments. In order to get any work done I've had to go down to the lobby. I am frustrated by something that can be dealt with so easily.

This is a Fairfield Inn, so it is basic, straight forward lodging. However, it's location allows you easy access to Des Moines (even West side shopping is only about 30 minutes away), the growing Ankeny area, and you are only about 20 minutes from the Iowa State campus. The hotel is well kept and the staff is very helpful. You... More

This is a clean, comfortable hotel with staff that go above and beyond. In my 1-day stay I witnessed multiple staff go above and beyond for multiple guests. Very kid friendly. Pool is open 24 hours. The complimentary breakfast is very good.
