I stayed at this Best Western 2 years ago and enjoyed my visit, but the quality of service, breakfast, and happy hour has diminished. I was also a little grossed out because the hotel lobby had some sort of ultimate fighting/wrestling/boxing show on the t.v. during "happy hour". We were checking in and my kids were having snacks while this... More

Dear Andrea, we are sorry that you did not find us as appealing as on your previous visits. We have been continuously improving the property and the free social hour remains as the only one offered in our competitive set. I am sorry that you did not find it appealing, after all it is hard to find the value of... More

Hotel staff couldn't have been friendlier and told us where to go to get discounted theme park tickets. Hotel was very clean. Kids loved the pool and hot tub. Room had plenty of space, refrigerator, microwave, 2 TV's. Breakfast was great, plenty of choices. Spent 2 nights here, could have stayed longer.

To start, we had a king suite and it was smaller than a two double bed room! It was room 224--you could not use the pull out couch and walk around the bed to the other side of the room...way to small! Next, there is absolutely no air conditioning in the lobby or breakfast area or hallways...it is cooler outside... More

Dear Amy, thank you very much for your review and let me address your concerns below. You did not have a king suite but just a standard king room, which comes with a sleeper sofa. That is the room your team contracted for and no suite was offered anywhere along the line, just a standard king room, I am sorry... More

On our trip to Colorado,we chose places that would put us half way. We picked Clive Iowa on our way home.The building appearance lived up to its great look. The staff and rooms were better than I had expected.Highly recommend staying here.

I booked room through the on line system and mistakenly booked a room for the incorrect night which I realized within a minute after booking. When I called the number for Best Western, they said they could not help me since the rate I got was lower due to the fact it could not be cancelled. I explained my situation... More

Dear Gary, I am sorry that you were unable to get your money back but the whole principle of the web special is to offer a substantial discount but at the cost of no flexibility to change your mind. BW also offers the flexible rate, which is a full price rate but allows you up to 4pm on the day... More

An older property that has been exceptionally well maintained. Comfortable and convenient. Good breakfast and very nice staff. Two minor quirks: the shower/toilet light is outside across from the sink. And plug next to sink is turned off by switching off counter lights. Therefore, can not plug in recharging cords or night lights as will be switched off. Nonetheless, we... More

Good hotel; fresh and clean, but they don't go out of their way to make you feel special if you're a rewards member. Make sure you get to the dining room before 9 am if you want breakfast, otherwise your SOOL.

If you are looking for a great hotel in the Des Moines area, please check out the Best Western in Clive. It has a great location--close to Jordan Creek Mall--and it has a wonderful quiet environment where you can rest and relax. The lobby has been recently re-done and it is beautiful. They now have two computers for the benefit... More

We stayed here during a traumatic time in our lives...we had to move our son out of his apartment in Ames, during the same 3 days as my husband's young sister's funeral. The beds were very worn out...the sides felt like you would roll right out of bed. Maybe it was just our room 207. But like I said, we... More
