They had no record of our reservation. Front desk person didn't know how to help, had to wait for someone to get off the phone to help. Once we finally got a room it was well worn, dated and smelled like stale smoke. The pool was being filled up by a hose and the hot tub was not working... But... More

I stayed for an extended period. The facility has transitioned from a hotel to an apartment / extended stay facility. It is definitely geared toward longer term stays and the longer you stay the better the value! Don't expect hotel service because it isn't a hotel. The signage is deceptive since it says it is a hotel / suites facility.... More

I have stayed at the Clive Hotel for about a year while on contract in Des Moines. i have watched it go from a slow decline to a nose-down crash straight into a dump of a hotel. When i first moved in, the carpets were cleaned every week..Now once a month if you are lucky. there were 3 ice machines... More

I stayed at Clive Hotel and Suites for seven months in late 2006 and early 2007, being at the property Monday thru Fridays and departing on weekends. Unfortunately the property went the wrong direction during my stay. Clive Hotel is a six-story former Clarion Hotel with no smoking on the upper floors. The rooms are nicely remodeled and the price... More

I stayed here for 2.5 months while they were in construction. It wasn't horrible but it was no where near great. My ceiling dripped water on three separate occasions and the desk clerks never seemed to know whether or not the problem had been fixed. My mattress sunk down so low in the middle it was almost touching the floor.... More

We had a wonderful time for a great price. The ad on the internet says in-hotel reastaurant and bar. But they are only open if there is a certain amount of stayers at the hotel. So you might want to call and see if the reastaurant will be open. The food is great and they make awsome drinks!! Try the... More

The staff attitude was aweful and were very rude. I called and asked how far the hotel was to East Army Post Road after I made the reservation with ..., and they said that it would only take 5 minutes when it actually took about 25 minutes. Each day I came back to the hotel from work, my key was... More
