This hotel property is impeccably clean and well maintained. The staff was tremendously friendly. Our first room placement was directly across the hall from the swimming pool entry door, and smelled strongly of chlorine (from the pool). We asked for a different room and the desk clerk quickly accomodated that request (there were a number of girl's soccer teams in... More

I recently stayed here twice while traveling out of state. My experience was very good both stays. The king room I stayed in each time was clean and comfortable, with a new and cozy bed, and I loved the room decor. Colorful and modern, lots of lighting. Everything seemed new throughout the hotel. I wasn't there long enough to use... More

This was a very different Sleep Inn than most we have stayed in. The colors of the wall and the carpet scheme were really wild. I loved it! I really liked the green color of our room and the blue carpet in the hallways. Now on with the review. The room was very clean and fairly large. The bed was... More

Getting to the hotel was a little trickier than I would have liked since you have to twist and turn around other parking lots before you can get to the hotel. The indoor swimming pool was warm and clean. The deepest point is 5 feet, so the kids have fun flopping around without having to worry about treading water. The... More

The Sleep Inn is a good choice for travelers looking for a decent place to sleep in a convenient location. When we arrived late (10 pm), the two desk clerks were ready for us and very friendly. Our room (132) was large, with very comfortable beds (4 pillows each) and a large shower (no bathtub) with excellent water pressure. Everything... More

The front staff hardly had time to tell us where our rooms were. The room was very small and stuffy, the airconditioner didn't work, only hot air blowing, you couldn't adjust the temperture. The room had an odor to it, not sure if that was because they let dogs stay there. The breakfast was so crowed, and not a very... More

The hotel was very easy to find, and when we drove up to it, the outside appearance was nice. I made my reservation in advance, and it took about 30 seconds to check in with a friendly person at the front desk. I had requested a rollaway bed in my online reservation and it was waiting in the room when... More

We recently spent three nights at the Sleep Inn in Urbandale (Des Moines). The stay was everything we could have expected. Check-in was efficient and when I presented the confirmation printed at the time of making the reservation, the cleck said "Oh, you have three different rates for each of your three nights. That's not right. I'm going to give... More
