Awesome place to stay. Offers a great warm continental breakfast. Beautiful surroundings with an outdoor gazebo and a pond. Also has an outdoor basketball court/tennis court. This will be our choice hotels anytime we are in the Des Moines area.

My husband surprised me by getting a 2-bedroom suite for our weekend trip with his youngest daughter. It was great because we had our own personal space, as did she, and didn't have to sit on the bed when eating pizza or watching TV. We were able to have more of his family over to the hotel because our room... More

I'll start off that I am a Residence Inn fan. It has become our hotel of choice when traveling. The Residence Inn in West Des Moines is another great hotel. The location is a big part of why we like it. It is located in the Jordan Creek Town Center which has a nice mall and many, many restaurants within... More

The hotel is hard to find because it is located in the Jordan creek center so when I mapquested it took me in all sorts of directions accept the right one but once I found it it was a nice hotel. The picture they have on file does not do it justice. The inside is very nice for a 3... More

We used the Residence Inn in West Des Moines for our annual winter get-away. We had 14 people coming from various parts of Iowa and met at this location. The main gathering room was a 2 bedroom suite with a nice sized living room area. What we liked about this room is that it had enough room for everyone to... More

Our family of six (kids ages 9-14) spent a night here on the road between Colorado & Chicago. It was a little hard to find because it is in the rear of a large mall/shopping area, but it is not far from the interstate, and I'm guessing that folks who stay for long periods would enjoy the short walk to...

Not that there was anything wrong with my old favorite, but it was Christmas night and all the decent restaurants were closed. I needed a place with at least a microwave and fridge in order to feed myself - Residence Inn has a full, well-appointed kitchen. This is a relatively new property a few miles off the interstate but worth... More

We stayed here for one night over Christmas break. We had zero complaints. The lobby refreshments for the evening happy hour was a great surprise, and hit the spot. The pool was large, and nice and warm. Our room was clean and well appointed. The breakfast was also really great. Lots of good options. The patio was pretty and if... More

We were visiting family over Christmas and stayed for one night. The room was large and had a sitting area and kitchen with stove, fridge, microwave, and dishwasher. Great location next to Jordan Creek Mall, restaurants, and other shopping within walking distance of hotel. Will definitely plan to stay again when traveling in the Des Moines area!
