Old furnishings throughout. The room had a bathtub that was painted and paint was peeling off everywhere. The bedding was stained, and the room smelled of body odor and was musty. The restaurant looked nice but all of the woodwork was sticky and it smelled so bad I could never have eaten there! Decided I couldn't stay there and went... More

My parents and I had a very early flight out of the Des Moines airport, and we stayed at the Ramada the night before. The shuttle begins running at 4:00 am.

Stayed here recently for business and a trip to see the Iowa Cubbies. The rooms were really comfortable and nice. Pool area was being updated so "No comment" on that. I Was worried at first since the hallways seemed dingy and old but don't let that fool ya. They have a restaurant attached. Bar tenders were not friendly.
