This motel use to be a Best Western. It is no longer good enough quality to be a Best Western! I have stayed at this motel off & on for 25+ years. It use to be a real quality motel, not so much anymore! They are in the process of renovation (so to speak). Just looks like a band-aid to... More

Price good. Staff very friendly. However, small amount of black mold in shower, which, if cleaned should not have looked new. Plus, wall by AC was dirty from handprints leaning on wall to adjust temp. Nice to get breakfast voucher to diner next door, it was good.

Decided to stay here due to being close to where I would be working and the reviews. This hotel can use some updating and better housekeeping!!!! Our room wasn't vacuumed and the carpet was coming up. There was food left in the refrigerator from the previous people and it was broken and causing the carpet in front of it to... More

It was great having a room big enough for all 3 kids to have room. The bathroom was not nice, the toilet ran the whole time and tub didn't drain very well. The outside door did not close completely so it was not secure over night. Breakfast was great. The sign is not lit and when we got off the... More

We had a very comfortable overnight stay. Staff was friendly and helpful. The bed was really comfy and everything seemed clean and tidy. The pool was nice and felt great after a long, sweaty car trip. The Ankeny Diner was awesome. Great food and wonderful service. Overall, we had a really good experience and couldn't really beat the price. We... More

We stay here every time I visit Iowa! They have the best staff. Very accommodating and have the best restaurant on site. A great indoor pool and jacuzzi! They are close to Adventureland easy access from I 35 and very family friendly and of course you might be surprised by meeting Santa!

We stayed here for a trip to Adventureland this summer and it was great! The staff went above and beyond! The pool and hot tub were perfect for our 2 boys and my husband and I. Restaurant food was awesome. They are doing renovation but you would never know as a guest, they did a great job of keeping that... More

Bugs in room, pool doesn't open til 10am- most people are gone for the day by then, the room was so humid all of our belongings were wet, poor choices for breakfast at the diner, under construction so it was dusty/dirty, the bathroom was very dirty.

The place is being renovated as I type this so maybe your experience will be better. The RM smelled like it was a smoking RM many months before? The doors didn't close right, my bed was squeaky and sagged in the middle. We had a visitor at two am and had to tell them room was taken. On the up... More
