When visiting the area we always stay either here or the sleep inn. The last two stays, this past septemebr and October , they upgraded our room to the whirlpool suite. The first time was unexpected and the second time Steven asked upon check-in and we kindly obliged. Never can go wrong here. Notice: they are updating and doing an... More

I went in with no reservation and inquired as to rates and was displeased at $95 bucks. We had an Extended Stay reservation the next night so we paid up instead of driving around without a smart phone to help us looking for something else at night. At check-in we received a voucher for two free beers! Now I'm happier.... More

We were tired and had just had a wonderful meal with friends at the Machine Shed, right next door. We trekked over and found the prices reasonable and the staff friendly. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. The only thing I can say about the breakfast....it was free. As stated previously, we were next door to the Machine... More

Hotel was over priced and void of customers. Room smelled and needed updates. Bath and sink cracked and stained. Rest of room looked clean. Towels were old and shower trickled. Staff was very helpful and nearly made up for the physical property concerns.

My daughter's team stayed here for a soccer tournament. Staff was very accommodating ...letting us use a meeting room for a team pizza party. Everything was clean. Great pool with plenty of tables and space for everyone . Good breakfast. Very pleased with this hotel.

What a neat hotel! Lots of reading and conversation nooks in lobby. Great character. The only down side was our room was not as clean as I would like, mystery gummy substance on carpet, that our 3 year old found. Our rooms toilet never did work right. It was a quiet room though and large. With a smidgen more cleaning... More

The hotel is located right off the interstate (35N&80) for easy on/off access. The check in was fast and friendly. The room was large and very clean with a nice layout. It was furnished with a large screen TV, coffee maker, iron/iron board, & fridge. It was 96 degrees out when I arrived so the cool (actually cold) room was... More

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
