The Clive Courtyard is conveniently located off I 80 / 35 just west of Des Moines. All of the attractions of Des Moines and its western suburbs are within easy driving distance. Of course the inn is built on the standard Courtyard plan, yet a recent makeover and Iowa-Friendly staff set this Courtyard apart. During my stay, I found the... More

Its an average Courtyard, which means its clean with all the amenities you need. I was given a room facing the freeway and thought I might change rooms after the first night, but never did as I could barely hear the freeway. Its in a great central location for Clive and W Des Moines. The only negative was a lack... More

We are frequent Marriott travelers. They always locate in safe , visible and comfortable locales! We are usually after a good night's sleep, and the Clive location did not disappoint! Close to interstate, other food ,gas and shopping. We had a very late arrival and yet everything was in order, I never have to worry about Marriott!

This is our 3rd visit to this hotel and as always, very nice. We booked through Priceline but it didn't matter. Room is always clean and exactly what we want. Had a balcony this trip. Front desk staff are always helpful for anything you need

The rooms were dingy and compacted. The bed was at least clean and so was the bathroom. We could hear our neighbors and people walking in the hall and above us all night.

Very nicely furnished hotel, we weren't there to utilize many amenities, but the room was very comfortable. Pillows were overly soft for my tastes, but the hotel was very quiet and we slept great. Property is a little difficult to find, especially at night, but we made it.

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
