You couldn't ask for better staff. They are all so friendly and genuinely care about the customers that stay there. I travel for business a lot and this is the hotel I choose when going to Des Moines. I have stayed at many other hotels and they don't even come close to the customer service I get here. The rooms...

This hotel has been there all my life. I was born here. It has been remodeled many times over the years. The upgrades and maintenance are pretty good, but they need to be sure to stay on top of them. I love the Ankeny Diner and bar, it's a perk to me. Love the pool and spa, too, although I... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times for business. It is a very good value for the price. It is clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff have always gone out of their way to accommodate any requests I have. While it is rather dated, it is a good value for the money. The breakfast is great also.

The property is not modern but it is a good value for the cost. Nobody messes with you, no loud neighbors and free breakfast. I was very satisfied with my stay. This is my 2nd stay at this location and no problems wither time. I will stay again.

Hotel room was fine. Staff Knowledge was subpar. Tried to print boarding passes for an early morning flight and the printer in the business center was broken. The front desk person didn't have a clue (although I think she would have helped if she knew how to). When I first arrived at the hotel to check in, they had two... More

Late night check-in was easy and stress free. Staff was pleasant and welcoming. Our room was clean and fresh although dated, but we could see they were in process of remodeling rooms. I would recommend this hotel happily!

We stayed at this hotel because the group we were with wanted to because it was relatively inexpensive and located close to where we were meeting others for a function. It was a great value! We had a clean, spacious, room with free breakfast at the connecting Ankeny Diner. The Wi-Fi was not good.

When we return to Minnesota from Texas, Des Moines is the right place for our last night's mileage. We prefer Best Western Metro North in Ankeny, because it's in a suburb; it's right at the intersection of I-35 and Exit 92. There is no searching or difficulty getting back to the Interstate. We asked for a first floor room near... More

This hotel was grandfathered in to not require an elevator. So, in the likely event that you are assigned a second floor room, be prepared to haul your luggage up the stairs. And, if you are assigned a room near the back, don't try to get in through the back door. It will not accept your key card. Also, check... More
