This is a very nice hotel. I will definitely stay here again! The suite was large, there were ample plug ins, it was warm, there was plenty of hot water, it was quiet! The grounds are nice, it is dog friendly, and the ceiling panels in the elevator even have nice pictures on them! The towels were folded into fancy...

We stayed there one night on our way to St. Paul. It was clean and had little extras like fresh cookies and umbrellas to use. The pool/spa was very nice. They are undergoing renovations, so some things obviously needed replacement (like our bathroom tiles), but others things were brand new (like the bedding). A good breakfast with hot and cold...

We wanted to start our own tradition as a new couple. The room was spacious with a microwave and mini frig and a whirlpool. It also had two tvs which we used. There was not time to use the pool and hot tub or the work out room. We did sit by the fireplace and eat our carry out dinner....

Great West Des Moines location, right off University. Close to Jordon Creek Mall and lots of dining options-I would recommend Rock Bottom which is within 5 minutes as one dining option-great happy hour specials. They offer free Wi-FY and a hot breakfast.

This is the poorest "Plus" hotel I have stayed in. Don't be fooled by the property listing that states its a new hotel, as this building was built back in 1999, according to the Polk County Assessors website. So don't believe the quote on the website stating "This new hotel in Clive....". It's just a new hotel to the Best...

Dear Iowa hawkeye, thank you so very much for enlightening me and the traveling public for the improper use of the adjective "new". You are correct, the hotel was built in the last Century and I have not changed the description since buying the hotel a few years ago. It is still the newest hotel in Clive but that does...

Great hotel. Dog friendly and didn't charge a huge fee for it either. Very pleased with appearance and atmosphere. Had a lovely overnight stay on our way home from thanksgiving travels. The lobby is very welcoming and cozy.

Pet friendly, too! Check in was awesome. Clerk was friendly, professional. Lobby clean and cookies available! Super nice clean room. Plenty of space, too. Extremely comfortable bed. Breakfast was pretty decent too, what made it even better and nicer, was it was served with real china places, glasses and real silverware, not plastic. Coffee cups were ceramic too in room!...

Thank you for noticing our chinaware. For many years we discovered that food tastes so much better off china then it does of paper and plastic. And on top of it we do not contribute to the landfill. Soldier on dear traveler and hope to see you again!

Nice facility and Helpful Staff. We stayed here twice approx. 1 week apart. Rooms were both nice. Actually, the second stay room was REALLY nice, (larger than standard) There is an odd and somewhat constricted entrance to the elevator and it is sometimes slow... but it will get there, be patient. Big plus was quiet A/C which helps block outside...

Attentive staff, ok breakfast, good pet hotel with outdoor grassy spaces to run. Pet rooms have no wall to wall carpet which is actually pretty nice. Convenient to freeways and very close to a really wonderful YMCA

Thanks for the good words Monica. I am glad you and your dog enjoyed our facilities. We like to brag about those safe green spaces by the hotel where you can play catch or frisbee with your four legged animals. Next time check with us for some old tennis balls to make your dog happy. Thanks again and happy travels.
