Stayed two nights for business. The grounds and public areas are clean and well maintained. The rooms were fresh and clean with comfortable beds and a pillow menu. I was pleased with the in room coffee and ironing board. The room was spacious and could have been used for entertaining. The wifi was easily accessed and the halls were quiet.... More

From booking, the staff was very helpful and personable, and did an excellent job of accommodating my request for a room with plenty of space to get some work done. Location is convenient but still tucked away enough for privacy and quiet. Close to many restaurants. Wish the room had a fridge/microwave, but, other than that, large TV, desk, coffeemaker,... More

This hotel really sets itself apart from most blocky chain hotels I have stayed at. The decor of the place is that of being in a log cabin in the Northern United States. I must admit it really makes up for the fact that you are staying in suburban Des Moines, the hotel also really does a good job at... More

Upon checking into my room on Sunday 2/2/14, I was disappointed with the condition of the room. Wallpaper falling from the wall, light flickering, no outlet cover, outside noise and lack of snow plowing in the parking lot. Frustrated, I wrote a TripAdvisor review and posted pictures of the wall paper. On Tuesday 2/4/14, I came back to my room... More

Since our daughter lives in Des Moines, we often stay at the Wildwood Lodge and view it as an excellent place to stay in the area. One of the best things about it is the lodge-inspired lobby area; it is very large and two storied and is filled with a myriad of "up north" decorations from fishing creels to a... More

Our family, along with a few other families, spent New Year's Eve at the Wildwood and thought it was fantastic! They had a band, snacks, party favors and more! Our group sat by the fire, played games and relaxed, watching other families come and go. The next morning's New Year's breakfast was probably the biggest I've ever seen at a... More

Great property at a very affordable rate in a great area for shopping!! Very nice north woods style theme! Will definitely go back when in that area! Breakfast o.k not spectacular but still a great value.

Very nice facility. Unique interior of hotel and appreciated delicious hot continental breakfast choices in the morning. Also nice to have "happy hour" in the evenings and receive a free cocktail coupon when checking in. Conveniently located by interstate and chain restaurants within walking distance of hotel.

This hotel isn't really meant for extended stay (no washer/dryer or microwaves); however you don't mind staying. Was here for an extended business trip and the staff made sure my every need was met. No washer/dryer? No problem, courtesy van took me over to the sleep inn their sister property to take care of it. No microwave? No problem, one... More

We were greeted by a very friendly and helpful staff. We were given 'tickets' for a free wine/beer at their early evening reception, which also included peanuts and a hot snack. Rooms are very spacious and decorated unlike the run-of-the-mill hotels. It would have been nice, though, to have a refrigerator, since we stayed for multiple days. 2nd floor had... More
