A colleague and I were meeting friends in Ankeny, before I had an early flight the next day out of Des Moines. The hotel was quite accessible to the airport--just a few hundred yards from I-35, 20 minutes or so to terminal. The hotel itself is fairly spartan and functional--friendly manager, acceptable room, but hallways smelled badly of cigarette smoke.... More

nice hotel, quiet even though it was just off I-35W. Access to it needs to be improved, but overall a nice place to stay.

This was such a terrible experience. First off, The place was just dirty. The carpets, the walls, everything just looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years. We were in a non-smoking room, but the smoking rooms were just down the hall. There was some sort of small air "purifier" between the two sections, but the smell still hung in... More

I travel a lot throughout the United States and overseas and write many honest reviews. My boyfriend booked this hotel for a visit for a graduation ceremony (limited area options due to lots of travelers). I was not impressed at all with the facility. We were in a nonsmoking room on the second floor but someone was in the hall... More
