We arrived at this hotel on our way to Minneapolis, they did not have a handicapped room for my mother in a wheel chair and all the non smoking rooms had been smoked in. There was no ice in the two ice machines and they couldn't do anything to help us nor did they want to. Avoid at all costs.... More

On this particular road trip I stayed at two different Comfort Inns, one in Columbus, OH the other in Topeka, Kansas. They we're clean comfortable and up to date. So I decided to stay at this one in Des Moines. what a huge disappointment! The hotel looked very dated with huge pieces of the stucco missing, doors with holes in... More

I booked this hotel online, paying $135.00. When I checked in, I was informed by the desk clerk the room rate was $87; almost a $50 difference. My reservation was for a disability room, but when I arrived the room was already taken. Instead, I got a room at the end of a long hall. For someone needing a disability... More

We were just passing through so we spent only one night. For a next-to-the-highway hotel of this class, the price was way too high ($145 including taxes and dog). Plus the neighborhood is run down so we were uncomfortable, and again with the price. We were allowed to take our small dog which was good. The room was ok, but... More

This hotel is falling apart. The cleaning is substandard. The staff is surly. There was only one cart for a three story hotel. We were put on the 3rd floor after being told we would get a first floor room. Not fun when you have a dog and the elevator is broken and you can't climb stairs. Never again.

We stayed at this hotel on June 25, 2014. Rate was $94.49, but that was too much. The hotel is in a rather rundown neighborhood. Outsiders (perhaps employees) seemed to bringing their families in to use the pool. Lots of traffic noise because it is right up to I-80. Our friend's bathtub had black mildew spots. Towels were nice and... More

I am sorry you had a bad experience at our facility. We are working with our suppliers to complete the new bedding program, which will make a huge difference in our property. I hope you come back once the transformation is complete to see the end result. More

We stayed here on our way west. Price was right, very close to I-80. Warning: google maps will tell you to turn left off of exit 136. Don't! There is no way to get to the hotel that way. It takes you back to the freeway. We had to take the next exit and circle back. So....turn right! Rooms: pillows... More

This hotel was just okay. My fiancee and I stayed here because he was in town on business. I came here with him last year as well. We almost stayed somewhere else this time around but I thought that it wouldn't hurt to save some money. The toilet in the first room that we were assigned kept running. We called... More
