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...

We loved the overall look of the hotel. My husband and son are very much the outdoorsy type and just loved the surroundings. The rooms were clean and comfortable. When we walked in they already had the air on and it worked exceedingly well. The kids loved the pool and hot tub area and spent a lot of time there.... More

Stay here for business fairly regularly and always an awesome stay. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are always superb. The breakfast is also awesome! I accidentally left my jacket in my room (it was white and blended in with the bedding) but the staff let me back in after I had turned in my keys so that... More

The room is ALWAYS the way you want it to be, clean, nice furnishings, all the electronics work and the towels don't look like they are ready to go to the garage for work towels. The staff is always friendly and professional.

Not a luxury hotel, but worth a 5 rating because it is so clean & comfortable. Cute, rustic interior design. Good indoor / outdoor pool, can actually swim back & forth between the two. Hot tub. Great conference rooms if you need accommodations for a group.

I recently stayed at Stony Creek Hotel in Des Moines Iowa. We stayed at one of the suites that was just fine. However – they only had plastic glasses in the room and no where in the hotel could I find a recycling bin. If you choose to stay there – please ask the management to put in recycling. What... More

We stayed in the room with bunk beds, a king+ bed, and pull out sofa with 2 adults and 5 kids. It worked out great! So great, in fact we decided to stay an extra night. The beds were comfortable and the kids loved the pools. There was also a nice variety of items for breakfast.

We have now stayed at this hotel multiple times. We most prefer to stay in the Cottages as we love the quiet atmosphere and the special treatment received. It is more pricey, but well worth it when we are celebrating our anniversary. Overall, our stay was fabulous. We so appreciate the cleanliness of the hotel & rooms, the friendliness of... More
