This hotel was very nice and clean.Stayed at an Americinn in Johnston,IA and the bed was uncomfortable and didn't seem as homey.It was cheaper that's why we stayed there but now will go back to Grimes,IA instead because we like the atmosphere better.

5 mo.prior to a family gathering, I reserved room block.No family could access w/o problems. Some never were able to. Sheets worn out &grungy and rough.Worst of all we were charged for an extra room, they admitted error but wouldn't issue immediate refund since they didn't know how to charge the person who actually stayed in the room, Still no...

We have stayed in this hotel before for a family wedding and other get-togethers, and we always find it enjoyable. We like to stay here when getting together in the Des Moines area with family from other states. While there is not a lot in Grimes itself, we find the necessities of a grocery store, fast food & Walmart all... More

Not much to choose from in GRIMES, next time we will stay in Des Moines. This hotel was adequate, but not for the price. Rooms were a bit noisy, we could hear the TV next door and the bathroom upstairs. Nice staff, but a 2 star at a 3 star price

We met the family for a family reunion and the hotel was a great central location for all of us. The staff was great and let us sit in the main area at night. The breakfast bar was fantastic in the morning. The rooms were clean and and roomy.

Made reservations months in advance for family reunion. Arrived on Friday for three-day stay and met at desk by Josh, a very friendly, helpful person who let me check out the room and made sure I was on the 2nd floor east side so no afternoon sun. He also gave me an extra set of towels as there were three... More

The staff really make this average value chain hotel into an exceptional hotel. I called to make reservations for 5 rooms on a very busy weekend in DSM, and the staff member was really helpful making sure the rooms were correct and had enough beds. Most of the hotels in Des Moines were booked for this particular weekend and I... More

Like most Americinns, this one was very clean and well appointed, with a nice hot breakfast selection. But this is one of 4 in the country that has a little bar off the back of the lobby, which serves beer, wine, and pizza. What a treat after a long drive to be able to enjoy a glass of wine with...

Super friendly/helpful staff. Room quite comfortable & quiet. Cousins from CA, WI, NE, OK & IA stayed here for funeral (in nearby Perry). Staff was so accommodating & allowed us to all gather for relaxing time in the very inviting, comfortable lobby area making our visit time most pleasant. Very clean, comfortable facility. Would certainly stay there for future visits.

our third year in a row with my volleyball team and their families. I return because it is a small hotel with an intimate feel, only two floors, the commons area with fireplace, breakfast area, and pool is in close proximity to the front desk. For groups, this encourages interaction. Fresh fruit available in the breakfast area 24 hours. This... More
