It had been over three years since I had stayed at this hotel. I would often stay here while on business in Des Moines. At that time, the front desk would recognized me, the rooms were quiet and clean, and it is close to restaurants and stores. Nothing has changed. It is still a dependable, great place to stay while... More

This is a nice hotel. The staff was all quite friendly. We had a King suite. The room was well appointed and quite comfortable. Unfortunately, in spite of the insistence that this was a smoke free hotel, our room clearly smelled of smoke. I heard another guest mention the same thing about their room. The hotel needs to invest the... More

The pool is large, and the lobby decor is pretty quaint, but the rooms are very outdated. Ours had a very stale smoky smell, ick, with stains on the curtains, sofa and carpet. I haven't slept in a double bed in a long time, either...can't think of the last hotel where the 2-bed option wasn't a queen. Could definitely use... More

We stayed here during a youth football tournament, the pool area here is amazing! Very spacious and comfortable for multiple families. We had a poolside room - which was perfect for going in and out of the pool area. Hot tub was nice and big. The room itself could use some updating, which I understand is coming this winter. Double... More

Stayed here one night very comfortable accommodations , no elevator so be aware if you have a problem with stairs, large indoor pool and hot tub however the front desk clerk told me they are dropping the Comfort brand to become a boutique hotel, maybe the best thing about staying here is the Iowa Machine Shed Restaurant next door ,...

Sitting on the historical Living History Farms ( the Pope was here in 80') this hotel is very comfortable and reasonable for the price in the area. Right off of I 35. The pluses: if you are looking for a pool, it is indoors and very big, it sits right next door to one of the best restaurants in Iowa,... More

Just average stay in my opinion. The room was clean, but the decor and furniture could use an update. The second evening of my stay, I was very disappointed with how noisy things were. Part of this is the hotel's fault because to close the door to the room all the way a person has to slam it. the other... More

The room was clean and spacious. Stayed two nights and room was cleaned well the next day. Clean and large pool area. Staff was polite and very well organized. Breakfast was good. Hotel was very kid friendly but not loud. Close proximity to food and coffee.

7/6/2014 One of the best decors, maybe the best I've seen I the whole Choice Hotel chain! Very quiet rooms, well appointed, very clean. Breakfast has options I've never seen offered before! And it's next door to a sister property of a simply fabulous restaurant!! People thought your review was: Useful 1, Cool 1

This used to be a favorite stop when traveling. It now needs a makeover desperately. Our room had big red stains on the carpet . Children are allowed to run wild. Supposed to be non- smoking hotel but you can smell smoke as soon as you walk in. Lobby looks good but hallways and rooms need attention. Everything just looks... More
