The room was excellent and the breakfast was excellent. It was very clean, comfortable and quiet. The problem was the number of people staying, overwhelmed the amount of food available and the space to sit and eat breakfast.

This hotel is either new or recently remodeled. Quiet neighborhood, with two restaurants within walking distance. We had a suite with two queen beds, sofa bed and two TVs. The lobby has a computer and printer. The work out area has a treadmill, elliptical, weights and a bike. Breakfast was pretty poor with powdered eggs and day old pastry. No... More

Expensive but enjoyable one night stay in Clive, Ia. Our room was a king bed with a pull out couch that was very well decorated. The AC did just fine and cooled the room to our setting. The pool was small and the hot tub hot and enjoyable. We had a good nights sleep and had our pooch with us,... More

We recently stayed at this hotel during USSSA Little League World Series. The rates were higher first off due to this hotel committing to providing stays for teams that are in the series. So instead of the typical $98 a night we each paid $125 plus tax (we booked 12 rooms). So staying Wednesday to Sunday you'd expect that we... More

A clean & cool room without carpet! Newly redone & smelling great. Breakfast itself earned this place an extra star or two. Set in the lobby, breakfast included scrambled eggs, salsa, sausage links, biscuits & gravy, Redi whip for the waffles, AND strawberry compote on REAL plates. It truly was a treat, sandwiched between long hours on I-80. I'd stay... More

Room and overall facility condition was above average for this type of hotel. Breakfast fell short. 20 minutes before end of service 3 out of 4 hot entree items were out. Staff was responsive and prompt on arrival and check out.

This motel is very close to a host of medical facilities located in West Des Moines. The facility is clean, has a nice indoor pool and a good breakfast buffet with a nice variety. We booked a suite that had a hide-a-bed that was very comfortable.

Staying in this hotel the night before our grandson was to be born was uncomfortable. We got the suite with the hot tub. I'm sure at one point someone cleaned it, but it looked as tho it needed and update and a refresh.I found a bug by the toilet, which I just flushed, no big deal. Then found three the... More

We had a great stay during our recent drive across country as a family. The room was very quite, which was great as we were all very tired from a long day on the road. The breakfast was great and gave us the fuel we needed for another day of driving.

The furniture in our room was far past its prime with the chair looking quite dirty. The air conditioning is provided by a window unit that blows right under the curtain, making one half of the room very cold and the other half very warm on a hot summer night. When the air conditioning was not running (a continuous fan... More
