Motel has been "assembled" from several buildings and enclosed around an atrium pool. The effort was somewhat successful, but the fact is obvious. The breakfast is vouchered in the incorporated diner and limited. Prefer the usual self-serve cafeteria setup. Food was okay -- similar to "usual", but not as good as some. TV service was awkward. Furniture was especially clean. Décor was sub-par.

Strong cigarette smoke smell in our poolside room, even though there is no smoking allowed anywhere on the premises. Also loud screaming kids until after 10 pm. Would not recommend pool side rooms. We have stayed in other rooms at this hotel with no problems.
A bit on the worn side. rooms are small but clean.
This hotel is a bit prone to overbook, and if you get in late in the evening (after 8) they will likely have rented your room.
Breakfast is provided via an agreement with the Ankeny Diner which is located on the western end of the building. The Diner has a Sunday brunch, which is apparently popular with the locals.
If you check out after 8 am on a Sunday you might as well go to McD's if you don't want to wait an hour to be seated.
OK experience but light years better than the Super 8 across the street.
The Quality Inn next door is a better value.

Hotel was exceptional with their service, reasonably priced, nice pool and hot tub-nice workout area. Diner had great food and great service. Would highly recommend hotel to others. Right off the interstate and easy to get to. Was ideal location for where we had to go. Rooms were very nice and clean.

Needed a room close to college. This was the closest I could find that still had no smoking rooms. What a surprise. Good rooms, great staff and excellant food. Toss in a pool and hot tub, what more could you ask for.

After driving for 10 hours we stopped here. Great Pool area. The Room we had was ok ,needs some updating, Carpet , Wall unit for A/C ,Heat. No CL Breakfast but had a Diner attached, We were given tickets for what we could order for free everything else was extra,.So we paid 80.00 bucks for the room but spent and extra 7.00 dollars for food.The Guy who checked us in seemed Stressed and the Woman who checked us out in the Morning had no Personality. THE Doors to the Rooms are sticky due to settling.

Room Tip: Make sure your Door closes. No CL Breakfast has a Diner so expect to spend extra Money and Tip!
