“$35 PET FEE OUTRAGEOUS”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

Recently stayed here and was shocked when told the pet fee is $35.00. Most pet fees I have experienced is $10 to $15 per night. No elevator and pet room was on second floor. Other than that, room was clean. Easy access from interstate.

My husband and I, along with our Papillon, stayed at the Comfort Inn in Ankeny December 23-24 while visiting relatives for Christmas. This is our second Christmas-time visit and both times have exceeded our expectations. When we checked in this time, we were greeted by Daisy who remembered us from last year! That was a welcome surprise! We checked into our room and found that it had been refreshed from 2012 when the hotel underwent an extensive renovation. The room was spotlessly clean, the bed one of the most comfortable we've slept on in any price hotel property. The fluffy white duvet and selection of pillow firmness was typical of a 4 or 5 star hotel property and we were pleasantly surprised to find this type of bedding in a moderately priced property. The large flat screen TV, upscale bathroom furnishings and morning continental breakfast with hot and cold options added to our great stay. This is a great property with staff who make sure each guest is well cared for. We'll be back next year!

Room Tip: There is no elevator so request a first floor room if you need it.

As corporate traveler I get a lot of chances to find a hotel that does it all right..... This Comfort Inn is one of a few of any brand that hits everything you look for. Great check in by friendly employee, modern and updated surroundings and furnishings, nice comfy king size bed to watch a large flat panel T.V. and a good morning breakfast.....Great Job Comfort Inn...

We stayed here while visiting relatives in Ankeny and were so pleased with this hotel. First off it was easy to find since it was right off the interstate and yet it was far enough to be a quiet location. The parking lot was cramped, but ok. The lady who checked us in was so friendly and helpful. She asked if we wanted a room on the first or second floor, so if you need to be on the first floor they will help you choose the room best for you. The room was large and clean, with a comfortable bed and plenty of pillows. The bathroom was good size and even had a fan which made my hubby happy. We thought the breakfast was just as advertised: deluxe. We had eggs and waffles which were tasty and there were other items to choose from such as biscuits/gravy, rolls, yogurt, and hard boiled eggs. We thought this was a great place to stay and would stay here again.

This is a really nice Choice hotel. We have stayed at many, and I must say that we started avoided them a bit a couple years ago. However, we have been encouraged by some of the new properties. We tried the Comfort in Ankeny because of a special offer. We were very pleased with the hotel and wished that we were staying longer. We had a king room that was very spacious, and the bathroom was extremely nice. The room and bathroom are decorated in darker woods and furnishings. It looks classy. The room was immaculate, and the bed was like brand new. The location is extremely quiet - far enough off 35 that we didn't hear anything. Breakfast is like most hotel breakfasts; it's fine, but I don't go to a hotel for the breakfast. I want an immaculate room for a decent price. We would definitely stay here again. Beware that there is no elevator for the second (of 2) floors. It wasn't a problem for us but simply request the lower level if you need it.

Room Tip: Ask for upper floor if you have no problem with stairs - one flight. It is very, very quiet.

We were "wowed" by the entire place! The front desk people were on the spot with getting us an affordable room even though we had no reservation. They were accommodating about helping us find a first floor room to appease me with a painful hip! The room was LOVELY! Super comfortable bed, nice sheets and bedding, very nice furnishings including a 'fridge for our sodas. Everything was top notch! Breakfast in the morning was way more than sufficient for traveling folks! Great place to rest and unwind!

Came in around 10 PM and after driving over a thousand miles in one day, just looking for a nice, clean, and quiet room as we had no reservations and the Comfort Inn fit the bill as I was really pleased that they had so many TV stations to watch and choose from. Breakfast was better than the standard fare as they had hot waffles and eggs and other choices. Lots of restaurants around to choose from and very close to the freeway. Nice that they had more than just a shower as the bathtub was a nice welcome sight after all of that driving. Pool looked nice even though we didn't swim. Only downside was I had to get a big clump of hair out of the top of the drain in the bathtub.

Room Tip: If you get a room late in the PM, get a room facing the west so the sun doesn't wake you up when...
