There were no directions for the waffle maker & the lady working one morning was evidently in a bad mood because she was unkind about telling how it worked. Also I had booked this online earlier for 4 adults but there were only 3 towels in the room & we could not get another towel because we were told "all...

The young man who checked us in was friendly and polite. I'm sorry I don't remember his name. The beds are comfortable. The hotel itself is a little worn and tired but everything was clean and neat. The breakfast included eggs, a nice switch from the carbs that are usually the only offering.

I had requested a double queen room, but at late check-in after a late plane, I was told there weren't any available because they were sold out due to the Iowa State Fair (I was in town for a funeral). When I nicely pressed that I confirmed 2 queens would be available, or even a king would be preferable, the...

I found the place clean. The staff was friendly. Breakfast choices were lacking, but what they had was good. This is an old facility, but worked well for me on a business trip. It is close to a variety of food establishment.

My stay at the Days Inn Ankeny was just what I needed- an inexpensive room for an overnight stay. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was good for a discount hotel. My only complaint- I went to the desk in the morning because I was almost out of toilet paper (not a good thing!) and...
