Stayed at this location for two evenings while on business. Although the hotel is older it appears to have been renovated and has a 50s style diner attached to it, where they provide you with a coupon for light breakfast at the front desk, or a $3.80 credit towards whatever you want to order. The room was fairly quiet and... More

I was very unhappy with my stay at Best Western in Ankey, Iowa. Check in was strained and uncomfortabe. After driving seven hours it is always nice to share some friendly conversation and made to feel welcome. The front desk girl did not speak anymore than she had to. Just ask a few questions and handed me my keys and... More

Pool is published open until 11:00pm both Friday and Saturday night. And that is not even enforced. Tried calling the front desk at 11:20 to ask them to please have the guests leave the pool area and the phone was not answered. At 11:30 is was finally quiet. When I asked about it the next day I was told that... More

If you are traveling though Iowa, there is no better place to stay. Very friendly staff and great food at the Diner, which is attached. Very easy location to find. Just off I 35. and just a couple miles north of I80-I35 junction. Great beds, and very quiet rooms. Kids have fun in the indoor pool.

Great service at the front desk. The auditor was outstanding and the her service and professionalism was top notch! When entering the room, it was your typical hotel experience. The room was slightly musty but clean. The wifi internet access was not available. It was suggested that I go to the halway to gain access but as soon as I... More

This Best Western is a sprawling complex located about 15 minutes north of downtown Des Moines right off I-35. It is located near to shopping and restaurants typical of middle class suburbs. The hotel has interior corridors, an indoor pool, business center, small fitness room and is associated with a first-rate diner that is attached to the property. The service... More

My first impression was poor. The front desk clerk was wearing a pink sweatshirt and did not seem very interested in helping me. The lobby was clean, but coffee was not available. There is an attached restaurant/lounge which seemed nice, but was close to empty. The room was standard BW, and the shower was excellent.

Outstanding staff. The motel itself needs some updating and you better check out the room to make sure you have an air conditioner that is pumping out the cold air. There are rooms with older A/C's that don't quite do the job. The staff is fantastic on taking care of things though.

I've stayed at this motel a number of times. The check out experience, the breakfast, and the pool are all excellent. Night check in is always a coin flip, as to what you will get. This time, not only did I not get the room amenities I reserved, the night check in was singularly unhelpful, and totally disinterested in getting... More

This was an excellent location with a pool for our grandchildren. Restaurant is located on the property with option for free breakfast at the restaurant. Room was large and clean with friendly, helpful staff.
