We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here over Labor Day weekend. We were part of a tandem bicycle rally. I was a bit concerned that with a group of this many people, all of whom wanted a good breakfast, that the staff would not be able to keep up. No worries. The menu is not extensive, but there was an option... More

Customer service was excellent, rooms were nice, and decent amenities. Would probably not want to stay for any length of time but it is perfect for a business trip. Price was fair. And they do have a Starbucks. Food prices were a bit high.

It was a Good nights sleep for us. Quiet too. We only stayed one night and we were so tired we fell asleep as soon as our heads hit the pillows. Internet worked well for us too. There was a little funky moldy smell in the carpet by the bathroom door, probably from wet carpeting at some point.

Yet another wonderful stay at a Marriott hotel. Everything we needed. Convenient location, clean, comfortable, quiet and excellent service. We never hesitate to stay at a Marriott hotel. Can"t say that about their competitors. As always, thank you for the wonderful stay.

If you are looking for a clean fresh conveniently located hotel with a very convenient Starbucks located inside the hotel at a great rate, this is the place. This hotel is up to the same standards as the more expensive hotels all around the same area, yet has the same quality for a much better rate. Book your room here... More

The first time we traveled to Iowa to drop my sister off at school we stayed here because it had the best reviews online, but we weren't very thrilled with the place. It was nice enough, but it was a pretty average hotel.

I am in Ankeny for business several times a year and have made this Courtyard my hotel here. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean. They are also deep so you are buffered from noise. Especially like the bistro and lounge area.

Stayed 3 nights at this location. The hotel is being remodeled however, the room I received was already finished. They are remodeling to the newer gray color theme and I barely noticed as it is well contained. No complaints whatsoever and soft towels to boot! Courtyard standards and the meal this trip from the Bistro was a Cheddar French Dip... More
