I am a Marriott Platinum Elite member so I have stayed at my fair share of Marriott hotels over the years. I don't typically stay at Courtyards but had to bite the bullet this stay as it we needed a last minute room and with the State Fair going on, rooms were tough to come by. I used 15K Marriott...

We needed to catch some shuteye on a long road trip. This place fit the bill nicely. Good: we did an express price line deal and the room cost $55 instead of the $180 rack rate, so that was awesome. The room was very clean and comfy with a fridge and appealing decor and furnishings. There's a Starbucks downstairs. Bad:... More

NICE AMENITIES but OVERPRICED for the AAU Junior Olympic Event that we recently attended. Apparently, this is the hotel's practice when there are major events so it was disappointing to pay almost $500 more than the typical competitive prices for this type of hotel. What I spent in hotel fees alone, I could have used to take my family on... More

My daughter and I stayed here while in town for a dance workshop. Hotel had a great location near the interstate and within 15 minutes from the Waukee studio. We could easily get to Jordan Creek and Valley West Malls. Easy accessible to many restaurants we wanted. The hotel staff was wonderful Layout is a bit odd - kind of... More

Very clean hotel, service was friendly and great location. The only thing I would have liked would be a Complimentary breakfast. Although the food was very good, the breakfast service was incredibly slow! Breakfast bars might not taste as good or fresh, but with that long of a wait I think I would have preferred something more timely.

Stayed 11 nights at this location for business. It is quiet, even on the weekend, other than a little interstate noise. I only hear it however, because I sit in silent room while working. I am sure if you had the TV turned on you wouldn't even notice. I prefer this brand for that reason, quiet and they leave you... More

My husband and I had been on the road for a while and drove in late at night to this welcoming hotel. It was off the highway a bit, so we experienced a quiet stay. The room was clean and the bed was wonderful. Parking was easy and the elevator was a nice touch for us, since we were on... More

Our one pillow smelled mildewed. Other than that, staff was nice, rooms were clean, there is an amenities area with many items available, the lobby has a (self paid) breakfast bar and Starbucks coffee.

This hotel was everything I expected from Courtyard. Clean, comfortable, up to date and very friendly service. The room I stayed in did face the interstate and the noise was noticeable at night. I would definitely recommend this hotel but you may want to ask for a room that doesn't face the interstate.

Why did we pick this hotel for two nights? It was the cheapest rate of the Marriott properties in and around DM this past weekend. The location couldn't be much better for on/off Interstate access in any direction. Downtown is 15 min. Our king room on the first floor facing the pool included a small patio and two chairs. The...
