I stayed at the Stoney Creek 4 times in the last 4 months. It is such a great place to stay, whether it be in the hotel or at the cottages. Very friendly staff and very helpful. Also very clean. Gloria, at the Cottages, make the best omelets and is very nice and courteous. Zelda

Very good, nice rooms. Bar area is a little small. Certainly better than 2 stars. Beds are comfortable and the lobby is nice. Staff was helpful. I'd recommend this hotel if you have a need to stay the area. I stayed in a king, room was massive. 3 stars easy.

My girlfriend and I planed a trip to get away to Des Moines and found this hotel. The hotel experience actually turned out to be amazing. From the moment you walk in you feel welcomed. Plenty of parking and located conveniently near anything you may need. Also a big factor.... adult only swim and hot tub between 10-11. They even... More

We were pleasantly surprised with this beautiful hotel. The rooms are spacious and even a Teddy Bear was waiting for us in our bedroom. We had microwave and fridge. The bathroom was lovely and we felt right at home. It is located near great places to eat and visit. The nice Front Desk attendants were very helpful guiding us to... More

Everything was tidy, clean and well kept. The staff was friendly and available. The theme of a northern cabin was evident throughout the hotel. The only disappointment was the breakfast. It was very ordinary and as I arrived at the end of a rush it was messy and poorly stocked. The staff did restock and clean but they were in... More

Very nice mid-priced hotel with a cabin-style environment. Very nice indoor/outdoor pool setting with whirlpool-one of the better ones for kids. I was told the sauna disclosed on their website was taken out a couple years ago. Provided breakfast was ok. I didn't appreciate having a water-reduction nozzle on the shower, which in my opinion was overly stingy.

I stayed here recently while traveling on business. I had never heard of this chain of hotels and booked randomly based on a list of recommended hotels from the conference I was attending. Upon checking in I was informed that I had been upgraded to a jacuzzi suite, no charge. I was given room 53, Wilderness Edge, and it was... More

We stay at Stoney Creek Hotels whenever possible, most often in Des Moines, Iowa. The staff has always been very nice, professional and knowledgable. The rooms are fantastic - roomy, clean, comfortable beds and nicely decorated. The free breakfast is good, with lots of hot and cold choices. We choose Stoney Creek when it's available because we can always know... More

This hotel was very accommodating to a large group. We stayed here with a sports organization. The pool area was very tidy as well as the rest of the hotel. Plenty of areas for group gathering. Our room was large and the bathroom was a bit tight, but very nice. Breakfast was alright. Nothing to write home about. Would highly... More
