We knew when we stayed here we wouldn't be staying at a 4 star hotel and only stayed for 1 night while visiting ISU. My biggest complaint was that we could not get any internet connection in our room. Also, the shower handle in the bathroom was in poor working order and in need of repair. The room had a... More

Very good location and good food and service by everyone.We hope to be stating there again soon. Would think any family would enjoy the pool, and service. Room was very clean and you could ask for information in the area and the staff was very helpful.

Could be very nice but needs updating in the rooms. We only had a window air conditioner, the carpet was damp due to the humidity in the air, and it smelled very musty. The pool area was nice and the staff was helpful.

Took 12 guys on a golf trip to central Iowa and stayed at the BW in Ankeny - it was exactly as advertised - fair priced, very nice room, excellent cafe for both breakfast and other meals, nice staff - will stay there again.

I was looking for an economic overnight that was close to Des Moines and after searching some of the surrounding cities, thinking that there would cheaper rates, I discovered this one in Ankeny. It was close-in and very affordable. It was surprisingly clean and comfortable. The enclosed restaurant called 'The Ankeny Diner' was a themed coffee shop/lounge area that served... More

We have stayed at both the Days Inn and Super 8 at this exit but decided to try the Best Western this time. Our room had been recently renovated and was very nice. The breakfast was awesome. 2 eggs, hashbrowns, toast and coffee at the dinner was free. A couple of other options were also offered or we could have... More

Good family place, but too many kids in the pool and generally running around. The included breakfast at the on site Ankeny Diner was great. You get a coupon for a basic breakfast or $3.60 off of any menu item. And the diner is a very good restaurant.

This was a very average hotel with a few real positives and a few big negatives. We stayed in a poolside room with 2 queen sized beds. The pool was very nice but the hot tub was a bit small. As expected, it was noisy at night because we were pool side. Fortunately staff cleared the pool right at closing... More

Many items in the room we stayed in needed repair. Broken toilet, no working remote control, tv not working correctly, shower handles broken. When reported, the staff did not address concerns or offer solutions.

Appearance of hotel slightly run down. Clean linens and towels. Noisy cooling/heating system. Wi-Fi not available in rooms distant from front desk. Friendly staff, and helpful, but not necessarily knowledgeable.
