We stay in hotels all over the country and this hotel is way overpriced for what you get. We used points (thank goodness). The bathroom door is a pullout type which was annoying. The shower door had what appeared to be mold along the outside bottom. No bathtub. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioner worked well. The most... More

Soooo, after reading many reviews I decided to book this hotel. Many people said it was a really great overnight stay. So I am going to list the pro's and cons! Pros: Clean, great location for the living farms site, near a lot of other things to do, staff was fine, received a room where I had requested. Cons: Dated,... More

Located just off the interstate the Sleep Inn was the perfect place to stop, rest and relax. Located in a park like setting one can easily see the property is clean with many updated features. The pool and well stocked breakfast made for a perfect stay.

Stayed here for 2 nights during visit to rea to see family. Really enjoyed the friendly staff and their easy going style. Room was nicely appointed. Bathroom/shower is a bit small with a sliding door, but was just fine for my purposes. Pool a bit small, but was nice that last hour it is open in the evenings is for... More

Had a question about how to do the thermostat and someone came up immediately. Large room, good rate $98 (AARP or 60 years or older). Room was pristine, hot breakfast was nice. Excellent value, I will stay here again when in town.

We had a family get together for my Mom's 90th birthday, and we blocked a set of rooms here. Everyone was pleased with the rooms, beds, service, and breakfast. We even used the breakfast area to have an ad hoc pizza party after the birthday party. The hotel staff even provided plates, napkins, and plastic ware to us. The staff... More

We've stayed here often so we have a definite opinion. Sleep Inn rooms are a little smaller, but quite acceptable. it's very clean, well decorated. This one has very attentive, friendly front desk people. Good value, especially since we're only staying one night. (Sleep Inn is great for that!). The floors are little thin here at this hotel so you... More

A group of us about 40 of us traveled from Wisconsin for a conference in Des Moines. Due to poor weather, we arrived at 9:30, after seven hours on the coach bus, tired and ready to go to bed. Unfortunately, the bus door would not open. After another hour on the bus the door opened and we flooded into the... More

Thank you so much for your review of our Sleep Inn at Living History Farms. I have to say that was one of the most interesting arrivals of a bus I have experienced. However with such a great group of individuals as your group was, it was enjoyable. He hope to see your group again soon. More

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times. It is functionable and well situated to both the interstate and restaurants. They have a free breakfast in the mornings. They do not have a fitness room but instead offer free passes to the Aspen Gym across the road, which is an excellent gym. Next door to the Sleep Inn... More
