We've stayed here on 3 occasions for a quick weekend getaway. I greatly enjoyed our stay in the whirlpool/jacuzzi suite. The hotel has a fun theme and decorating style that makes it cabin-like in appearance.

Asked for crib at check in and was told it would be delivered right to our room. Almost 2 hours later went down to check on it and was told they'd just rented the last one before we checked in. Assuming this is what actually happened they should've called the room immediately upon realizing their mistake. The front desk associate... More

My husband and I rented a room while in DSM for the Iowa State Fair. We got in late, but had instant, great customer service and were in our room within minutes. Our room and bathroom were spotless. The AC worked very well and was not loud or clunky like some hotels' are. We enjoyed the free breakfast the next... More

Came for the Iowa State Fair - quaint lodge theme hotel - love the enormous moose out front and the consistent lodge theme throughout the hotel. My 9 yr old daughter fell in love with the indoor/outdoor pool. Clean, well maintained, friendly hotel. Next time would stay on the upper floor - early morning outdoor rolling trash bin removal was... More

We stayed here for the iowa state fair and are very satisfied with that decision. It's unique in its theme; as you drive in to their parking lot, you are greeted by an enormous moose statue standing in front of the entrance and a bear right by the door. When you walk in, you're welcomed by a black bear on... More

Upon our arrival we were quickly checked in to our room. It was nice to be in a motel that is not a chain. It is an attractive place to stay with a small bar inside to get a drink. The rooms were clean and the beds were nice. The pool area was nice because part of it is inside... More

I have stayed here several times and Stoney Creek never let's me down. Only one suggestion...outdoor pool could use a little work. Easy access to interstates and a few good restaurants near by. Movie theater within walking distance too.

When we got to this hotel the front desk could not find our reservation. After traveling all day in the heat I was very frustrated to hear this. After troubleshooting with the front desk Manager, she determined that my reservation was accidently deleted, not sure how considering it was prepaid. This was not the way I wanted to start my...
