I stayed 4 nights in this hotel recently. For the price you pay I think it is a pretty good deal. The room I was in was spacious and well equipped, with a full size fridge, microwave and oven. If you wanted to cook real food you would probably have to ask for more cookware, but for a snack it... More

This place is very disappointing. Room and furniture stink with funk, beds are old, broken down mattresses & very uncomfortable, Wi-Fi is very slow, when it works. Management becomes very defensive/hostile when approached with these issues, especially if you want to leave early and get pro-rated refund....basically, they refuse to act with any measure of customer service, concern over dissatisfied...

Unsafe and I have pictures. You walked downhill in the room towards the airconditioner. Floor is not even. Major cracks in wall. 1215 had to have maintenance come because we could not even lock our door. Had to pull door in to room to lock so did not seal shut. 13 inch tv. Awful. I have so many pictures to... More

They had no record of our reservation. Front desk person didn't know how to help, had to wait for someone to get off the phone to help. Once we finally got a room it was well worn, dated and smelled like stale smoke. The pool was being filled up by a hose and the hot tub was not working... But... More

I stayed for an extended period. The facility has transitioned from a hotel to an apartment / extended stay facility. It is definitely geared toward longer term stays and the longer you stay the better the value! Don't expect hotel service because it isn't a hotel. The signage is deceptive since it says it is a hotel / suites facility.... More

I have stayed at the Clive Hotel for about a year while on contract in Des Moines. i have watched it go from a slow decline to a nose-down crash straight into a dump of a hotel. When i first moved in, the carpets were cleaned every week..Now once a month if you are lucky. there were 3 ice machines... More

I stayed at Clive Hotel and Suites for seven months in late 2006 and early 2007, being at the property Monday thru Fridays and departing on weekends. Unfortunately the property went the wrong direction during my stay. Clive Hotel is a six-story former Clarion Hotel with no smoking on the upper floors. The rooms are nicely remodeled and the price... More

I stayed here for 2.5 months while they were in construction. It wasn't horrible but it was no where near great. My ceiling dripped water on three separate occasions and the desk clerks never seemed to know whether or not the problem had been fixed. My mattress sunk down so low in the middle it was almost touching the floor.... More
