The service, accommodations, and continental breakfast were excellent. We were staying at Wildwood for the weekend to attend the Kansas State/Iowa State football game. The front staff were extremely helpful in pointing us to a great Mexican restaurant that was within walking distance. The continental breakfast was very nice, from the Belgium waffles to the oatmeal to the hard boiled... More

We was just in Clive visiting family and going to the state fair. We had a handicapped room on the ground floor, I don't know why but it was spacious with a large bathroom. The air conditioner was a little noisy but we only used it in the daytime. The lobby was nice with the out door cabin look. Breakfast... More

I hate to give a bad review when so many people are so fond of this place. However, this is the only time I remember that I cut short a stay to change hotels. I will start by saying that the public areas are nice. My husband particularly enjoyed the cabin-in-the-woods motif. The pool was interesting with a "water fall"... More

My wife and I stayed her for a couple of nights when we traveled to visit the Iowa state fair. I chose it because of the many great ratings. I was a little disappointed. In our room, some of the buttons on the telephone wouldn't work. The front grate of the air conditioning was detached and hanging halfway off. I... More

Stayed for 3 nights while attending the fair. Room was large and clean although rug had stains. King bed left only 6 inches on one side to get out of the bed. Much too tight. Compact refrigerator on floor. Shower wall curves in making it difficult and shower door top rail low so if you are tall, be careful not... More

I stayed at 2 hotels recently in DSM metro area and this was cheaper yet better than the other hotel. The Adirondack theme is, charming, I guess, as opposed to the corporate feel that chains have. My room was spotless and the breakfast was quite good. The pool was beautiful (indoors) and the lobby was very welcoming. Staff were excellent... More

This is a nice place. My family stayed her while travelling on vacation. It was built in 1996 and shows a little age but it is very clean. They gave each adult a free drink voucher at check in. The pool area is large and spacious. The rooms are normal size with a tub/shower combo. The fitness room is a... More

This hotel has a much different feel from the tutorial cookie-cutter hotels. It has a woodsy ambiance. The rooms were quiet and clean. The reason we didn't give it a four star rating is because our room smelled like a smoking room. We told the desk clerk when we left and he appeared surprised. They cook scrambled eggs in front...

OMG the shower was one of the best I had in a hotel in a long time and I work at one. The hotel was clean and I'm glad that you where able to get us in early. The only thing I didn't get my cookie upon check-in. Great stay!!!!
