Wow! What a great place to stay! We were on the road for over two weeks and this place was spectacular. The staff was excellent, the rooms large, everything clean, and the breakfast very good. We stayed for four night with all the rooms being filled and everyday was a pleasant experience. We will stay here from now on. I... More

I stayed here on a Thursday night. My daughter was visiting Faith Baptist Bible College for Scholorship weekend. She was able to stay on campus, but I needed a place to stay, so since this hotel had a relationship with the college and offered a reduced rate, I stayed here. Checked in around 5:30, easy and fast. Front desk was... More

I am sorry I cut you off, that was not my intention. The desk had already informed of your concern so I was aware of the issue, and it is one I often get calls about. Again, I apologize for cutting you off during our conversation. More

Spent the night in this hotel because our usual hotel was booked with state high school athletic events. The room was very comfortable and included a fridge and microwave. Very spacious bathroom. The breakfast consisted of bagel and pastry type items. The beds were very high. I am short and had a hard time getting in and out of them.... More

Was at the Fairfield Inn in early December 2014 while in the area for business. My room was clean and very large. The bed was extremely comfortable, the room furnishings updated and very functional, the bathroom huge and well appointed. Check in was efficient, quick and easy...can't ask for anything more. Breakfast was fine with lots of healthy selections in... More

Easy to find, right off of I-35. Set back from the road in a commercial area. Plenty of parking. Got a nice welcome when I came in. Commercial area, lots of restaurants nearby. The room was fine with the exception of some sloppy housekeeping....there was a room key left on top of the TV, and most interestingly a small "airplane... More

I've stayed at Fairfields mostly for the last 15 years. Recently I've gone away from them and gone to Hampton Inns because I didn't think maintenance and management of Fairfield Inns were up to par. The Ankeny Fairfield might bring me back as a customer. Well maintained and great service/management. Bravo! I feel like I got a good value on... More

Breakfast waffle mix so thick and cumbersome..product was too dry and cardboardy to eat. Brochure tells of Jimmy Dean sausage sandwiches to be available..did not see any. Heater in room noisy and kept me awake with its cycling. Beds way to high in the air for a short legged person. I am sure that the beds are made taller for... More
