Granted, I had to book last minute for a convention downtown, so rates were probably higher than normal. However, the hotel for the price was very average. The breakfast was decent with cooked eggs/meat/waffles, diy oatmeal, a couple types of fruit, yogurt, a few pastries and standard continental fare. However the breakfast room was so small, I had to stand... More

This is a centrally located downtown hotel. The rooms are OK. But they do book large groups here (like high school wrestlers) and that could get rowdy. I was there on a sunday night and the place was very quiet. My room on the 7th floor overlooked the river and the state capital. Very nice indeed. The breakfast is standard.... More

Our volleyball team stayed here for a tournament. My room smelled a bit of old smoke, probably used to be a smoking room back in the day. But the bed was super comfy and the shower was nice. My room even had a leather like recliner. The free breakfast was outstanding! I've stayed at many hotels that advertise a free... More

Clean, great location and fairly easy to find. The staff was friendly, breakfast with hot and cold items was good. It has a restaurant, exercise room and nice pool available. We would stay there again if we were in the area for an event.

We went to an Iowa Wild Game on Valentines Day and this was a very short walk to Wells Fargo Arena. Our hotel room was nice and comfortable. The reason I did not give a 4 or 5 is that the elevators are slow and small and the chairs in the breakfast area look like they have never been cleaned.

We attended the Girls' State Basketball Tournament which is usually a high-priced hotel stay but got the room here very reasonably. Melissa checked us in and out - very courteous and welcoing. The room was great. Although there were lots of young people staying there as well, the hotel was quiet. There aren't a lot of bells and whistles, but... More

It is right next to the Wells Fargo Arena and the Veterans Memorial Auditorium. Clean rooms, indoor pool, exercise room, lounge, clean bathrooms. Friendly people. Very nice breakfast, that is better than most. Right near the Interstate.

We drove down to Des Moines to see Winter Jam 2015 at the Wells Fargo Arena a block from the hotel. Perfect location! Easy access from the interstate and literally a one block walk to the arena. A hot breakfast is included and it was better than you typically see at the "buffet included" breakfasts. Nice sitting area and actually... More

I have only good things to say about this hotel: clean room and bath, very well situated in downtown, helpful staff.The breakfast was plentiful and it contained a variety of items for all tastes and diets. We did not want room service and we found a bag of clean towels and toiletries near our door. On Christmas Day there was... More

I hated this hotel. It was outdated, gross, dirty, and had paper thin walls and doors. I could hear the people next door when they turned the sink or shower on. You could hear people through every door as you walked down the hall. It was like a motel people live in vibe. The bathrooms are old and outdated with... More
