“Nice place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

We just stayed here on 8/20/2014, we were moving our son into his apartment at Iowa State University. The hotel is nice and clean, the room was comfortable and was perfect for the amount of time we actually spent in it. We are staying here again for Family Weekend and are looking forward to a nice comfortable stay. The front desk is efficient and it is not very far from the university. I am sure this will be our go to hotel for the next few years.

We were in town for a dance convention and booked a suite for 5 days. We had a large dining table and a kitchenette with a full-sized refrigerator so we didn't have to eat out all the time. Parents enjoyed the happy hour each evening and breakfast was good. Our group sat out on the front porch often. Nothing special about the pool but the kids liked it. Really good Mexican restaurant on the other side of the parking lot. Easy drive to get onto the campus. I thought it was a good value for this type of hotel.

Room Tip: We had a great view of a pond behind the hotel. One of our friends had a corner suite which is rea...

Staff was efficient and friendly. Got us into a room even though we arrived early. Room was clean and everything functioned. Breakfast was standard fair and person on duty made sure everything was kept available. Enjoyed our stay.

We came from out of state for the Iowa State Fair, and wanted to stay some where close to Des Moines, but something cheaper on the outskirts. I booked this hotel based on the reviews from TripAdvisor, and was very pleased that I did! The staff were so friendly, and the rooms/hallways/pool area/ breakfast area, let's just say the whole place was very clean and well taken care of. It is a older place, but very clean and comfy! I was very happy staying here!

My family was traveling through the area due to moving my sister out of her college dorm room; one of the only hotels that will allow pets up to 50 lbs. Nice place to stay - room was quite large, has a in-room microwave & refrigerator. Beds were rather comfy - so many times hotels can be rather uncomfortable and you sleep terribly.

Room Tip: Hotel has 3 floors but does have a full elevator. Offers a hot breakfast in the morning as well as...

very friendly staff, got us a roll a way bed and extra towels, etc... brought them up to the room personally. Nice people, easy in / out from the highway. Kids loved the free cookies, adults enjoyed the free coffee around the clock.

We try to stay here each time we are visiting our kids at Iowa State University. Conveniently located off of Rt 35 and within minutes to Iowa State. Rooms are always clean, breakfast service is good, and the hotel has a work out room and pool. Wifi a plus. Would recommend if you are in the area.
