We enjoyed our visit to Des Moines and staying here was good. Located west of downtown but an easy drive in if that's where you're going. Newer condition. Manager reception on week nights. Rooms were comfortable and breakfast was typical...

Room partially remodeled with new flooring, new paint... Someone needs to tell BW that bedspreads are OUT. Most hotels use a small drape... More

Chek in was easy. Room was comfortable and clean. Bed provided a good night's sleep. Hotel was quite. Breakfast was what you'd expect. Breakfast service was also good. We've stayed here before and if in the area would stay again.

This is an intimate hotel where the staff really goes out of its way to accommodate you. It makes the stay a simple pleasure and comfortable. It's a great location a short drive from downtown and nightlife.

We had a coupon for 100 off, and stayed in a king suite. We still had to pay 100 dollars. If we would have to have paid full price, I would be very annoyed. This location is not up to par with other Best Western Plus locations, and is very overpriced. The good points are that the hotel is very... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Plus in Clive for the weekend. Room was decent, clean. Staff friendly, efficient. Customer service really shined after our stay. Eyeglasses were left in the room. The evening staff referred us to speak with the owner during the day. The staff had recovered the glasses safely and he sent them right out... More

Very good room and very good breakfast. Would stay again. It was our first timed at a Best Western Plus. The room seemed the same as a regular Best Western but the breakfast was much better. There were more hot food choices

We have stayed at this facility a number of times when passing through central Iowa, and we have never been disappointed. The rooms are clean and spacious, and the breakfast is good. The only drawback is that this hotel is a bit difficult to find since it is right off the interstate but tucked behind a couple of other hotels.

We were thoroughly delighted with the happy hour and breakfast selections while driving home after 14 days on the road. Our trip took us from IL through 13 states before returning home. Best Western was the hotel of choice several times.

I can't complain about our room it was very clean when we got to it. The carpet was ripped at the door and was a trip hazard as the tear was about 7 inches long. The shower curtain was well worn along the top edge and was in need of replacing, but it was clean. There were youth soccer teams... More

Thanks you Judy for your review. We certainly take all of your comments seriously and correct them right away and implement new procedures to catch, those that are sometimes missed in the course of daily operations. I am sorry about the carpet seam coming loose. As you noticed we just installed brand new carpet in our hallways and the seam... More
