We stayed at the Adventureland Inn on July 20, 2011 and despite problems with our room/s had a great stay. We have stayed at the Adventureland Inn last year and enjoyed our experience so well, we booked again for this year. We like this property because it has free parking, a trolley which takes you to/from the Adventureland Park, comfortable... More

After reading reviews I was hesitant, but after two consecutive nights, I'm glad was stayed here. The price was perhaps a bit more, but you're really buying convenience if you are visiting AdventureLand. The hotel is less than a quarter mile from the AdventureLand entrance, with no major streets between you, so it's safe to walk. You can take the... More

Where do I start? I will start with the few positives. The employee staff, with the exception of the manager, were very nice. The pool was fun for the kids, though not worth the extra money, and the trolly to the park was a nice addition. The negatives- our first night there we opted for the buffet in the hotel.... More

Our rooms were in the East Courtyard Pool area. The room was okay and the kids had fun in the pool. BUT...the Pool-side Buffet was AWFUL!!! We didn't even eat what we had gotten on our first trip through the buffet. Everything tasted like it had been there for hours. When our server asked how it was, I told her... More

I was not very impressed by this place! The pictures they show on their website are a total lie. The pool looks impressive online but was horrible in person. There were crickets all over the room. The pillows were an inch thick. The dinner buffet was horrible. We had pizza and pasta for dinner and it had been sitting out... More

Where do I start. I will give you a brief synopsis. Too much chlorine in the pool, not enough outlets, terrible water pressure in the shower (a squirt gun has more pressure), no ironing board or iron in room, no complimentary coffee or paper in the lobby ( you have to pay for it). With all that, the place is... More

Every winter we take our kiddos to a hotel to swim in the pools while it's a blustery cold Iowa Winter outside. We are from the Des Moines area so we've made the rounds through many of the area hotels. For the past few years I've been hearing that Adventureland Inn has great pools for little kids, but because of... More

The hotel and the fun for the children was an amazing time The room was very roomy for the nine people we had, and the staff was outstandingly helpful and polite..... But the treatment in the eating establishment in the hotel was degrading, disrespectful, uncalled for and overall the worst experience I have ever had while dinind out. It completely... More

We stayed on a Saturday night packed with other children they were doing mainenence on one pool, but the reservationists called us back to let us know they were painting the pool and it took longer than they expected so that we could cancel our stay if that was the poolside we wanted. We've stayed out there for years and... More

We've stayed at the Adventurelann Inn twice now, last summer and again this summer. Both times we were impressed with how clean the rooms were and how friendly the staff were. Kudos to them! At first glance, the place looks very outdated from the street, and even when you walk into the main entrance, you kind of shudder at the... More
