We've stayed twice within the last few months (due to planned events in Des Moines). While the hotel is in a quiet location off the interstate, it is within short driving ranges to many locations in the area (shopping, restaurants, etc.). During our stays, we had 2 different experiences (good and bad), but overall here are some similarities: Pros: Clean... More

The good: Quiet location off the interstate, cool theme, delicious smelling lobby, reasonable price, very friendly people The bad: The crib we requested was just a playpen with a terribly stained mattress. The baby ended up staying in our bed, which was not very restful. The breakfast was a barely adequate continental served in a small room. I think we... More

Stayed here a couple times now. Love the lodge theme. Its very homey and the workers are all very friendly. Best hotel for the money. Offer a nice discount for John Deere employees. Swimming pool is amazing as is hot tub.

We stayed in one of the theme suite whirlpool rooms and had a very relaxing stay. Quiet stay with a fireplace and king sized bed. Felt clean and well kept. Close to restaurants and movie theater. We will definitely book again.

We had a very nice stay! We were very surprised by how nice the room was though a bit dark. The bathroom was nice but rather small. The pool was great! Indoor and outdoor! The lobby smelled wonderful every time we went through it.

Another great "Stoney Creek" property. If you enjoy a place with some fun and it doesn't look like your "same old/same old" try one of these the next time you are on your way. Great breakfast, great pool - that is both inside and outside - connected -- pretty cool. Nice whirlpool off of the pool and the rooms are... More

And be refreshed at Stoney Creek. My family and I were only able to stay here for 1 night, but it was such a pleasant and relaxing time. The atmosphere and decore made us feel right at home and gave us the refreshing we needed at this time. All of the staff members were courteous and helpful, always with a... More

Top 4 things we look for in a hotel: cleanliness, amenities we want, quality service, and excellent location. This hotel met all of our expectations with great staff, fun indoor/outdoor pool & large hot tub, and very clean, well kept hotel facility and rooms. And at a room rate of $93, I was super pleased!

Outside was well kept and nicely decorated with woodsy themes. Large lobby smelled good and was clean. There is a restaurant as well as a movie complex nearby. Our room was very clean and smelled good. It had 1 easy chair, a large desk, microwave, fridge, and coffeemaker. Only had 1 luggage rack-had to use the desk for our 2nd... More

Stayed here one night while passing through Iowa. The room was clean. I was disappointed that the staff didn't recommend a place to eat or let us know at check in the time of breakfast or location. It was very busy with wedding receptions and several baseball teams staying there. The decor was nice and the breakfast was good. Internet... More
