Staff were very friendly. They gave us a free up-grade when our requested room was not available for early check-in. Room was clean as was the lobby and dining area. I wish I would have packed a swim suit so I could have used the pool area.

Our family recently stayed here for 1 night. The room we were initially given reeked of smoke so I called to the front desk and they were able to move us to another room easily so that was a relief. The 1 bedroom suite was great for our family and having rooms with microwaves and fridges is nice when traveling... More

This hotel is near (enough) to downtown--new, beautiful, clean and walking distance to a couple of hotels. The employees are friendly and helpful and the rooms are bright and clean. This is THE hotel to stay in here in our estimation. As a sidelight, Sharon accidently left her purse hidden in the room and we did not discover it till... More

There aren't a lot of good reviews for downtown and Clive is close enough to the capitol. Comfortable, clean, accommodating, excellent breakfast with real dishes. We stayed there 2 times and both were great.

The accomidations are very nice for the price but the complimentary breakfast was less than expected based on past experience. The food was sub-par and not very fresh. Overall it is a nice hotel that could use a little help in the kitchen.

We stayed there for 2 nights on a trip to visit family. The check in process was easy and the front desk associate was friendly. The room was very clean and spacious.

We spent two nights here and found it very convenient to places west of Des Moines. We found it very comfortable and appealing. One example of being "a touch above" was our pleasure that the complimentary breakfast was served on real dishes and silverware, not the disposable kind found at other places.

Have been staying here for many years when visiting the Des Moines area. Although the state fair week they do raise the rates and almost impossible to use your Club Carlson points on any room. However all hotels know it is a money maker week.

The rooms showed age, and need some remodeling. Expensive for the quality of the accommodations. Good breakfast. High priced for the value of the accommodations. Also, somewhat difficult to find, signs do not provide clear direction to the hotel.

Very clean and quiet with one exception. When you sit outside on the front porch you either have to listen to the huge air conditioner on the one side, or get blasted by the heat from the air conditioner on the other side. Not well thought out. Otherwise a good place to stay with a nice upscale housing area next... More
