This Sleep Inn was pretty typical. It seems to be a little older, a lot of brass fixtures and modular furniture, but newer bedding and chairs. The breakfast was not as good as many Sleep Inns, no biscuits and gravy, processed eggs. The staff at check in was standing around talking and not enthused about talking to me or helping... More

We stayed at this hotel after attending an event at Seven Flags. Conveniently located just off I-35/80 and Hickman Road next to Living History Farms, this hotel is easy to get to and the location was great for what we were doing. This Sleep Inn is nothing spectacular, but you can tell they're trying - the rooms are contemporary and... More

This is was an experience that I had not anticipated. The room was small as most Sleep Inns are but it was the first one without a refrigerator. We requested one but did not get a room with one. I was told that they are busy putting them in each room but they didn't look all that busy to me.... More

Stayed here after slick snowpacked highways cut short our trip from Kansas City to Minnesota. The staff were professional but nope all that friendly. The room was clean but could use a little remodeling to upgrade the appearance of the wall coverings and shower caulk. Overall it was okay but nothing extraordinary.

We stayed at the Sleep Inn for one night. There were no major issues, but the hotel was fairly lackluster, and the bathroom left a lot to be desired. There was a very large shower, but the water pressure was so low that we could not change the shower head from "shower" to "pulsate" or else the water would simply... More

Stayed here on a Friday/Saturday 2 night vacation for a family event. Very nice facility, adequate parking. It is very difficult to locate this place. My GPS couldn't find it and many other people said the same thing. The Machine Shed restaurant is nearby, so enter that address instead, then drive part the Comfort Inn to the Sleep Inn. Floors...

This Sleep Inn has very modern rooms, they are well furnished, the room we stayed in had a nice shower. We would stay here again. They welcome pets, which is nice. WiFi connection is good. Good access to I-80. Rate seemed reasonable.

This was an overnight stay on the way to Denver and I was very impressed with the hotel. Everything looked liked it was just refurbished. The lobby, gym, pool area were gleaming. The room was in great condition with a walk-in shower. I found the rate ($99.96) very reasonable. I would certainly stay here again.

This was my 2nd stay at this location and I have nothing but positive things to report. I got exactly what I asked for which says something in itself. My only constructive criticisms are that the rate seemed high, but I know the Iowa State Fair is going on. I could of paid more if I stayed in Des Moines,... More

Attractive, classic style. Not for those who want ultra modern. Good sized rooms, good beds, wifi, excellent service, hot tub, warm pool. Near living farms historical area, near Jordan Creek shopping area.
