“Nice Stay!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014 via mobile

Courteous and friendly front desk staff, and clean rooms. The front desk attendant greeted me every morning, every time I was in the lobby area. The lobby cafe was great. The food was always fresh and delicious. I would suggest they upgrade the pillows and mattresses. I would recommend this hotel if you're ever in Ankeny.

My son and I stayed at this hotel for a basketball tournament. Alicia Hymel went out of her way to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. I would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again if we are back in the area.

I spent several months traveling to the area on business. I had an opportunity to stay in several different hotels in the area, but ultimately, routinely settled on the Courtyard in Ankeny. This hotel provided the best balance of cost, comfort, and convient location. The staff was always very professional, friendly, and curtious (as is a typical Marriott Courtyard, in my experience). On top of that, after only a couple of returns, several of the staff recognized me and made efforts to treat me even more like family.

You could stay at less expensive hotels in the area and probably some nicer ones (although I did not find any nicer without paying ALOT more), but you will not find a better overall balance of the two in the area.

My 12 year old son and I spent one night here over spring break while on our way to the Hoover Library in West Branch, IA.

Newer hotel with helpful staff. Pool and hot tub area were clean. Workout area was nice with free weights, elliptical and treadmills.

Breakfast was included in our rate and the on site restaurant was good.

Room was a typical Courtyard. A nice stay.

We have stayed here several times for our daughter's AAU tournaments in the area.
Very nice location and helpful staff. Highly recommend it. Breakfast was good. We received a half off coupon for breakfast.

Let's be honest, Courtyards can be hit or miss, big time! This place was brand new, had a fabulous staff and was so clean. The gym was small but well equipped and did the trick. The hotel is also walking distance to several places to dine out.

My room was nicely furnished and had some beautiful built in furniture pieces, great work space and a comfy bed. I was also taken by surprise when I saw a stand up shower, what a treat! I hate showing in bathtubs! While the rooms do have wall unit HVAC, these are silent and have full automated controls. I wish all courtyards would get that memo!

Thanks for a great stay, Courtyard!
