My spouse and I stayed overnight in the Cottages for a relaxing stay. We chose the whirlpool suite to spoil ourselves and that we certainly did. Everything in the room was immaculately clean. The whirlpool was so relaxing and there were organic toiletries provided in the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and there was a large kitchenette area. We... More

We had an amazing wedding at Stoney Creek. Loved the staff. They helped with stuff that was above and beyond. Our family loved the place and we plan to make this an annual event now. Needing a place to have your wedding this is it!

I have probably stayed at Stoney creek 10x over the past few years. When traveling on 80 thru Des Moines, I wouldn't stay anywhere else. They are pet friendly, the rooms are quiet and clean, and they have free breakfast in the morning. I always sleep well there and would definitely recommend staying there!

Whenever my family of 6 is in the Des Moines area, we come to Stony Creek Inn, or as we call it, The Bear Hotel! It is a great hotel with a outdoor/wilderness theme. The hotel décor is homey, and make you feel like it is not just another pit-stop on your stay. There is a continental breakfast that serves... More

Our room key had to be reset 3 times. They let young kids in the hot tub when there is a sign that kids 14 and under are not allowed. The breakfast was horrible. There was nothing left at 9am and it was not replenished. They also charge you more than what was quoted when you reserve the room. I... More

Dawn, I’m afraid we had a total communication breakdown with you during your visit. Usually, if a hotel key fails more than once, it’s likely it was kept next to or very near a cell phone which sometimes plays havoc with the key cards effectiveness. Also, you signed off at check in on a $25 (plus tax) pet fee so... More

My wife and I stayed here after Christmas shopping all day. It was a welcome change from the same old boring hotels that we normally would've stayed at. My wife said it was the cleanest hotel she'd ever been to. It is a very relaxing atmosphere and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be staying here... More

We stayed recently at Stoney Creek for two night as wwe attended a convention. The staff was very helpful. I asked at the last minute if we could change to an accessible room because of my wife's health and they were able to do that. We would definitely stay there again.

As I travel for business, I look for convenience and comfort. This hotel has it all. Quiet. Incredibly accommodating management staff. Huge whirlpool tubs. I don't use their wifi, so can't vouch for that, but I love everything about this hotel, from the whimsical changes in room to room, to the stuffed animals for sale that decorate the beds (proceeds...

My husband and I had our wedding reception at Stoney Creek this past summer, and we could not have been happier with it! From the first time we visited last December, we were sure this was the place for us. The staff was always very friendly and helpful, and the first event coordinator we worked with (Maggie) was excellent. She... More
