I stayed here during a road trip in June 2014 and was extremely disappointed. The hotel was rundown and was definitely not a 3 star hotel! I will say that the staff were friendly and helpful but that was all that I considered positive. The carpets throughout the hallways had huge stains and "paper litter" scattered on them the night...

As I Wyndham Rewards member I booked online as I always do and normally the check-in is quick and simple but not this time. The front desk clerk could not find my reservation and she finally asked me if I booked online and of course I answered "yes". Well then she said that she would have to look somewhere else.... More

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.

I wasn't expecting much from a Ramada and I got about what I expected. Main issues would be that the front desk lady was indifferent, room window opens onto a dimly lit corridor and the desk chair sits like a low rider and doesn't raise up. Additionally the cigarette burn on the blanket and a discarded box behind the noisy... More

My family and I were traveling this past weekend and stayed at the Ramada Inn in Des Moines IA- The service was horrible, the staff was condescending and the rooms were soo dirty. I found used clothing in my bed, and when I brought it to managements attention, they insinuated that I put it there myself-can you believe that-they told... More

Had this hotel booked for me by corporate as I was presenting a seminar in one of the ballrooms. Upon my arrival the front desk staff was not very interested in assisting me with any questions I had regarding the ballroom setup for the presentation. The hotel is in very bad shape. Maintenance and remodeling is definitely not the ownerships... More

We stayed here while visiting family in Des Moines and it works very well for us. This is the third time we've stayed here and have been comfortable each time. This time we were in an interior room and it got a little warm, even though it was minus 5 outside and we had the air conditioner on, we didn't... More
