We've stayed here often so we have a definite opinion. Sleep Inn rooms are a little smaller, but quite acceptable. it's very clean, well decorated. This one has very attentive, friendly front desk people. Good value, especially since we're only staying one night. (Sleep Inn is great for that!). The floors are little thin here at this hotel so you... More

A group of us about 40 of us traveled from Wisconsin for a conference in Des Moines. Due to poor weather, we arrived at 9:30, after seven hours on the coach bus, tired and ready to go to bed. Unfortunately, the bus door would not open. After another hour on the bus the door opened and we flooded into the... More

Thank you so much for your review of our Sleep Inn at Living History Farms. I have to say that was one of the most interesting arrivals of a bus I have experienced. However with such a great group of individuals as your group was, it was enjoyable. He hope to see your group again soon. More

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times. It is functionable and well situated to both the interstate and restaurants. They have a free breakfast in the mornings. They do not have a fitness room but instead offer free passes to the Aspen Gym across the road, which is an excellent gym. Next door to the Sleep Inn... More

Nice end room, color was a bit bright when I first walked in but it really grew on me. Decent breakfast, comfortable lobby, nice quiet solid stay. Front desk staff were super nice.I did really like the design of the hotel the shower was unique as was the wall around it.

Room was clean and nice size. My husband thought the bed was not as comfortable as other hotels but I slept fine. The breakfast selections were adequate but not as extensive as others. The coffee was weak. The hotel is a little hard to find. You have to go through the parking lots for a restaurant and another hotel. The... More

This is a nice hotel with clean and comfortable rooms. The walls are a bit thin so you can hear adjoining rooms but not too bad. Some rooms have refrigerators but not all. Continental breakfast is good. Always have eggs and sausage, as well as pastries and waffles.

I'm giving this 3 stars because the front desk staff here were amazing. They were very helpful and friendly. Very nice people. And while the hotel itself was very pretty, the noise level was just more than we could handle in the room. And when you don't get a good night's sleep, when you are constantly dealing with issues that... More

I loved the green accent wall and the BIG window that opened (the cats loved that window as well)! The art on the wall was pleasing and appropriate (hayfields) to the locale (central Iowa), yet retained more artistic integrity than most hotel pictures. The carpet designs were great! Although the room did not have a microwave, it did have a... More
