The Hampton Inn, Ankeny is the perfect hotel for a one night stay. This is an excellent hotel, with spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and a very courteous staff. The big down size for this hotel is the location. There is nothing withing walking distance that a traveler would like for food or entertainment. With that in mind, the hotel is quiet, and you will certainly get a great night sleep!

Room Tip: This is a great hotel for a once night business traveler, but it I couldn't recommend for a fami...

I have stayed at this Hampton often. It is a very nice hotel. Parking is ample, the lobby is modern and clean, and the rooms are a good size. The rooms I have seen were modern and very clean. Pillows are great. highly recommend this hotel.

I stay over 100 nights a year at Hilton properties and this Hampton is certainly the finest property in the Des Moines area. The rooms are uniquely designed which is hard to do because most Hampton rooms are basically the same. I would recommend this hotel highly. I do not use the workout room but it is the finest one I have seen, however, I do swim for excercise and the pool is very clean and decent size for lap swimming.

On a plus note the bed was comfortable. On the down side to simply this was not Hilton Hampton standards. After expecting a nice hotel I found this to be more like any other average quality motel. The breakfast was so bad on the first day we ate out on the 2nd day. The nearest car park spaces to the entrance were occupied by pickups with snowplows which blocked the sidewalk preventing any wheelchairs to pass.
The staff were mixed, either robot like or just not bothered, preferring to talk to their friends than to serve you.
When I am next in the area I will NOT choose this hotel again.

Traveling from Salt Lake City to home over the holidays we stopped at the Hampton Inn and Suites in Ankeny, Ia. We stay at this hotel a few times a year and enjoy its cleanliness and comfortable beds. Breakfast is always a little above other Hampton Inns we have stayed at which is a nice bonus.

We stopped at this hotel during our Christmas vacation as we were passing through Iowa. It was 2 days after a blizzard and the night before we arrived would've seen a full house at the hotel due to power outages. I never would've guessed had the front desk not told me. The hotel was very clean. It was also very quiet. There are no other hotels or restaurants nearby (closest ones are 1-2 miles away), so you'll need a car to go eat (or go any where), but we liked it.

Overall, it was typical Hampton Inn quality ... similar room, similar breakfast, with appropriate amenities. For passing through with the fam (and redemeeming some Hilton Honors points from business travel), it was absolutely ideal.

One caveat. Your GPS may take you to Exit 90. That's wrong. You need to leave I-35 at Exit 89 and veer East.

Stayed at this hotel over the weekend. Breakfast on Sat. a.m. was terrible. Eggs were in little crumbles and sausage had a grey color which looked disgusting. The pastries and muffins must have sat out for several days because they were very stale. Sun. breakfast was much better. Everyone was very helpful and friendly except for manager on duty or whoever he was on Sat. and Sun. morning. Far from friendly We will probably stay there again but not because of the manager.
