Stayed here for a business trip in Des Moines with a colleague of mine. We worked in the courtyard area, which was outfitted with nice tables, chairs and couches. I took a walk around the area to check out the restaurants, which are an easy five minute walk from the hotel. Room was clean, staff was nice, nothing bad to... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Courtyard in West Des Moines. As is the case with all Courtyards, the property was clean and well kept. The rooms were also very comfortable and clean. Exactly what you expect and pay for. The disappointment was the performance of the wifi system. Like many of you, I answer email and do... More

Stayed here on an overnight to Kansas City. The hotel was clean and the staff was great. We appreciated the option of getting a room with two queen beds and a sofa sleeper. Makes it easier for families of 5. The only drawback for Courtyard is the brand change to the Bistro. Not great options when trying to feed the... More

Great hotel! Clean and modern. Bathroom is really clean and I love where the bathroom is located in the room. It gives you more privacy since its away from the actual room. They have a bistro downstairs and we had breakfast there (additional charge). It was delish!!! The potatoes were really good! I recommend this hotel if you're around the... More

We arrived at midnight - the staff was very helpful and accommodating. Our room was very clean and quiet, and the beds were comfortable. It was nice to have a fridge to put our milk and juice for the next morning.

Front desk staff was very helpful and kind. Hotel was clean, rooms were updated. Courtyard was great for a gathering, as we had family in town. We didn't go to the bistro, but looked nice. No complaints!

We went to Des Moines for a wedding. We stayed at the Courtyard in West Des Moines/ Clive. It was a very clean room and even though we were very close to the interstate it was very quiet. We would stay there again.

The only thing weird about the hotel was the parking lot. The pool wasn't squeaky clean, the grout was a bit dirty but in it's entirety the pool was clean. The location was easily accessible and I had no problem finding it. It was off the interstate, however it was far enough away that the noise was not a problem.
