Nice end room, color was a bit bright when I first walked in but it really grew on me. Decent breakfast, comfortable lobby, nice quiet solid stay. Front desk staff were super nice.I did really like the design of the hotel the shower was unique as was the wall around it.

Room was clean and nice size. My husband thought the bed was not as comfortable as other hotels but I slept fine. The breakfast selections were adequate but not as extensive as others. The coffee was weak. The hotel is a little hard to find. You have to go through the parking lots for a restaurant and another hotel. The... More

This is a nice hotel with clean and comfortable rooms. The walls are a bit thin so you can hear adjoining rooms but not too bad. Some rooms have refrigerators but not all. Continental breakfast is good. Always have eggs and sausage, as well as pastries and waffles.

I'm giving this 3 stars because the front desk staff here were amazing. They were very helpful and friendly. Very nice people. And while the hotel itself was very pretty, the noise level was just more than we could handle in the room. And when you don't get a good night's sleep, when you are constantly dealing with issues that... More

I loved the green accent wall and the BIG window that opened (the cats loved that window as well)! The art on the wall was pleasing and appropriate (hayfields) to the locale (central Iowa), yet retained more artistic integrity than most hotel pictures. The carpet designs were great! Although the room did not have a microwave, it did have a... More

I travel to Des Moines often, decided to try a new hotel. I booked this one online, and drove around for awhile trying to find it, you have to drive through the Machine Shed restaurant parking lot to get back there, but it is not visible from the side road. The guy working the desk was friendly. The room itself... More
