Wildwood lodge feels like a visit to the "cabin". Hosts were very accommodating. The entire hotel is clean and well appointed. Our room was clean and very comfortable. Ours was an overnight on return from Arizona. We would definitely stay again.

We have such a awesome time when we get together & staying at the Wildwood lodge is so much fun! The breakfast is wonderful and with so many nearby restaurants we don't need to drive anywhere. The rooms are clean & spacious. And the staff is so friendly.

We had the breakfast buffet in the morning which had both hot and cold items to choose from. I found the hotel to be a nice inexpensive... More

Wildwood Lodge definitely has the Lodge feel once you walk through the doors. Very clean and cozy hotel. Met with family for the weekend and we had plenty of room to gather in front of the fireplace in the large lobby. Coffee was available 24/7 and the breakfast buffet was wonderful (fully stocked all the way through breakfast). Rooms were... More

Stayed here with family and friends. Incredible accommodations, very clean and atmosphere is amazing. The management of this hotel is the best I have ever seen. I would stay here again just to eat their free breakfast buffet in the morning.

Great Staff. Very spacious rooms. The USP for this hotel is the superb shuttle services they provide to their guests. This includes free pick up/ drop from the Des Moines Airport. They also provide the shuttle services for transport requirements of the guests to nearby places. Buffet breakfast is decent enough. But there is no restaurant in the hotel. There... More

The rooms were nice, we loved the cabin feel of the hotel, and breakfast was good. The fact that checkout isn't until noon (on saturday) was also a big perk! The people were friendly (both the other guests and the workers). It was also nice that it wasnt right in the hustle and bustle of things but very close,perfect destination!... More
