I have stayed here in the last half of 2015 3 times and all three experiences have been about the same. The front desk help haven't been overly friendly but have never been rude to me. There seems to be a more casual feel around the employees rather than professional. I have stayed in their Queen Suite rooms when I... More

Older property and I thought they had expensive room rates for the ammenties, but the price was inline with hotels in Des Monies area. It wasn't filthy but could use a serious deep cleaning. The bed sheets, towels and bath rooms were very clean. The staff was friendly and did go out of their way to help. Overall a good... More

After staying in what I was told the better hotel I had quite a few issues with my allergies, probably due to the strong smell of mildew. I find it embarrassing that a town with a nice college is unable to get a good hotel in town. As much as I hate to have to leave town when I visit... More

What I really like about this hotel is the personalized services that you get from Mr. and Mrs. Patel and staff. My wife, family and I just left there today and each time that we go we are impressed with the attention to service. We had an appliance malfunction in our room two nights ago. Patel personally brought a larger... More

I made the reservation on line. I asked for a lower floor room due to the knee injure. I have a very large brace, when we arrived they said they did not have one and they don't read anything from online reservations. The worst part was they did not even care, take it or leave it. We got to our... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for a family visit/graduation. The rooms were booked over a month in advance, requesting non-smoking 1st floor rooms near each other (there were 4 rooms all together). We were assured at time of booking, this would be no problem. We even called back to confirm several times during the 5 week span, the most... More

I have stayed at this motel twice. Once when it first opened (we were in town for my grandma's 90th birthday). The other was when I was in town for my aunt's funeral. The interior was dated but clean. There was no smell of mold, so they obviously ran the AC in unused rooms from time to time. Some nicks... More

It was old fashioned, but very clean!! Which is what I find most important in a hotel. The bathrooms are small, but the shower had good water pressure and warm water. The air conditioner/heater is very old and only lets out air at extreme temperatures. The breakfast in the morning is nothing special, but there is a McDonald's very close... More

If you are looking for an inexpensive stay that is clean and comfortable this is it. The building is older, the breakfast is bare bones but the accommodations are fine. You save over half of a hotel near Des Moines airport and there are several restaurants right around it and a Walmart. I would recommend it for any business traveler.... More
