My team stayed at this hotel for a week during the summer. The location is perfect for Ankeny ball fields and there are plenty of places to eat and shop nearby. The staff at AmericInn was TOP NOTCH! They were so kind every day, we felt at home. I recommend this hotel for any teams looking for comfortable accommodations and...

Motel was extremely clean, the room we stayed in was very nice and the king size bed was very comfortable. We stayed on a Wednesday night and is was very quiet. The breakfast was nice, good biscuits and gravy and pretty much the usual breakfast venue. People at the desk were very friendly and helpful.

I had a room with a king-size bed. It was a very well appointed room. Comfortable bed, clean spacious room with a desk free wi-fi and lounge chair. While there, I also spent some time in the hot tub and pool -- clean and well maintained. Complimentary breakfast is adequate. The staff was very hospitable. I would definitely choose to...

We were in Des Moines for a very special car show on Saturday and Sunday and did not want to stay there for the Monday A.M. traffic rush, but did not want to drive over 4 hours home either. Our day ended rather late on Sunday so I decided Ankeny was a great choice. I based my decision on other...

Dear Guest, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and the breakfast. We are fairly close to a lot of restaurants that do require driving but there are three within about 5 to 7 minutes walking distance should you stay again. Just ask and we would be happy to tell you about them. I do hope you will visit...

The breakfast they have is so much better than any hotel I've been at. The rooms are very nice and well kept. The pool and hot tub are very nice. The workout room is a joke. There are only two machines in the room. Overall great stay.

Dear Guest, Thank you for reviewing us, we appreciate you kind words. I am sorry that we have a small workout room. They did not provide us with a large area when the hotel was built. They did give us a good large hot tub though. I hope we will see you in the future. Thank you. Julie Wright GM

Check in was easy. Room was big and clean but we could hear the refrigerator all night. Couldn't find a hard copy of the TV channels--very useful when you are from a different area. A big dining area and lots of food. I didn't eat so the quality is ?? but the coffee was good.

We stayed at this hotel one night for a softball tournament here in Des Moines. I honestly have never stayed at an AmericInn before and really didn't know what to expect. The front desk told my wife a few days ago that they were recently upgraded about six months ago and I could see some apparent, recent improvements. The lobby...

Despite booking direct 2 months in advance we were put in a previous smoking room and the odor lingered. The lights in the bathroom were too dim to even shave by. The refrigerator grated when running. The coffee in the lobby/breakfast area was cold and/or empty. The door didn't close correctly. Too many things added up to a less than...

I am still waiting to stay at an AmericInn that fails to please. The room was clean and well decorated. There was a business meeting going late in the afternoon and early evening, but we could hear nothing from our room.
