My husband, 4 kids, and I stayed here on a cross country trip. It was very clean and in excellent condition. It was a very nice place to stay as weary travelers. The breakfast was a full spread and very nice with many options to choose from.

Not the best, but good enough. Stayed for 2 nights, we have limited choices as we travel with 2 large show dogs. Bed was nice, bath was spacious. Did have a bug of some sort run across the table when I turned the light on - being from northern Minnesota, I have no idea what a cockroach looks like, but... More

I stay in Des Moines on business. I like the Best Western. Nice place off the beaten path. Clean rooms, nice breakfast choices and beer, wine and snacks at night. Rooms are clean, large and comfortable. P{riced right for Des Moines area. Close to restaurants, shopping etc.

Dear Goodscout, thank you very much for your kind words about my property. We certainly enjoy hosting our social hour so our guests can enjoy our hospitality in the lobby and use that occasion to socialize, talk, play games and interact with each other. Much preferred to sitting alone in their rooms. Thanks again and pleasant travels to you. More

Lots of hs? college? athletes of both sexes filled the place, yelled in the hall until after 1 am. Could hear noises of all kinds through doors, walls, ceiling -- bad quality building materials and design. In the room, hard floors (look sort of like wood) magnified walking sounds into clopping or clomping, came through from rooms above and on... More

Dear Midwestern Woman, thank you very much for your review. It seems that your stay fell right during our city wide wrestling tournaments, that come to Des Moines every year during this time. I am sorry for the commotion but I can also assure you that no amount of brick and metal can separate you completely from the youthful enthusiasm... More

I was surprised to get a hot tub room on Valentines weekend and when we decided to stay two nights, we were still able to extend the online discount even though I called. I was shocked to get the second night, thinking the demand would be high. It was a good trip and my wife, who does not normally eat... More

Dear Jeremy, thank you very much for your compliments about my hotel and staff. I am glad you were able to enjoy our spa room and on such a day as Valentine.

This motel is in an excellent location with pine trees on property and generous parking. It has a nice pool and exercise room. The breakfast buffet is generous and well stocked with friendly staff! Rooms are very nice as well, quiet with clean and stocked bathroom supplies and comfy beds :)

We stayed at this hotel last night on a cross-country road trip. I made our reservation by phone and got a slightly better rate than online, friendly assistance from the lady at the desk who greeted us when we arrived later. The hotel was very clean, had a nice pool with hot tub for us and the kids to enjoy,... More

We needed a hotel while my husband was having a surgery. The staff was very caring and offered an incredible medical rate. We were also able to extend our stay by one night since my husband needed to stay extra time in the hospital. We were very thankful to have a great hotel for our needs.
