We wondered what the Plus meant in Best Western Plus. The desk clerk was modest about it, but we saw a lot of little touches that made the stay better than the usual I-80 choice. We would definitely stay there again. After driving all day with the spouse and 2 kids, we really wanted a nice comfortable stay and good... More

Booked a handicap room, but the fold-down bench for the tub was too far back from the shower controls to be used without assistance or really long arms. The shower head was fixed and not adjustable for someone who has to sit to shower. There were plenty of hand rails for the tub and shower. Room was clean and the... More

After driving 10 hours we arrived in Des Moines looking for a place to spend the night. Once again I must remind everyone that it is vacation time and the Hotels are all filled up. Book ahead if you can. The last thing you want to do is to arrive late at night and tired and not being able to... More

The hotel staff went out of their way to make the stay enjoyable despite the fact that the HVAC unit was not operating properly. The external temp was low enough to enable use of the windows which opened in combination with the HVAC to maintain a comfortable stay.

I just want to say the staff at this hotel is fantastic, I encountered Cathy, Phil, Irma, Casey and the owner that they call Mr.G during my stay and they were all great. The social hour was fantastic and the group I was with enjoyed talking to the other guest and watching tv. As I read the previous reviews there... More

This was an extremely clean hotel. I was very impressed! I walked from our room to the vending machines and back while barefoot and didn't even get dirty feet in the public hallways! Breakfast was good, but crowded. The pool is nice to have, but it is kind of weird that it is the first thing you see when you... More

Nice hotel, near the interstate and our friends. It is near the Greenway trail system that runs throughout the Des Moines area. We came to a bicycle event so this was a perfect spot for us. The dining area is rather small at busy times, but works.

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
