“An Excellent stay!!”
Reviewed March 17, 2008

We stayed on the way during a long road trip. What a great rest. The place seemed new and modernly decorated. We booked through hotwire and got 2 double beds after specifying 3 people. There was a refridge and microwave . the beds were a little soft but fine. The shower was a 10 and everything was clean. The breakfast was phenomenal. Fresh made sausage and eggs (you could make a sandwich with english muffins) yogurt, waffles, anything you could want. There were 2 free internet computers for use in the lobby. The pool looked great. I was sorry I didnt bring my suit. The only complaint I could see was there was not much room to move around. However, there was a comfy easy chair to read and a desk chair to use the free internet. (not wifi) There are tons of restaurants and mall around the hotel. This was a real find!

Very nice place. We booked the room through Priceline. When we arrived and requested a King room, we were told that for $5 extra, we could get a King Suite. It was certainly worth the extra money.
Breakfast was pretty good.
Manager was quite helpful when we forgot a bag and it needed to be shipped.

We had a birthday party at the hotel and everything went perfectly! All of our guests had a good time and were able to relax just like if we had hosted in our own home. There was plenty of space in the Executive Suite and the pool was totally awesome! We will definately be back also because the staff was so attentive and friendly and helpful in every way.

Sadly I didnt' get to stay here despite a reservation. We arrived late on a Friday night on the first leg of a road trip. The front desk told us our room had air conditioning problems but they could put us in a room at the La Quinta next door. It was only after I protested that I paid for a suite room and I was dissappointed to be downgraded to a standard room at the La Quinta did they offer to move us to another suite style hotel a few miles away. It was not a happy way for us to start our trip with 3 very tired kids.

My family of four stayed at the Country Inn and Suites in Clive, Iowa, April 6th through the 8th, Easter weekend. Booked a king two room suite with pull out sofa. Emailed the hotel to request a roll away. Hotel emailed reply right away stating that they would have a roll away in the room when we arrive. Check in was quick and easy. The lobby was very welcoming. Room was very nice and clean. The roll away was in the room just like they said. Extra pillow and blankets in the draws. The seating area and the bedroom is between seperate bathroom. That is nice as the first one in the bathroom can close the door and not bother the one sleeping on the pull out sofa. Seperate bedroom is also nice. The indoor pool is very nice and clean. The hot tub had hot water, which is nice. I hate a cold hot tub. The towel rack was never empty. Easter morning the hall way was very noisy with kids slaming doors and running up and down the halls but that is no fault of the hotel. Breakfast was very busy especially Easter morning. Everything was filled, even coffee urns where kept full. All in all I would recommend and stay at this hotel again.

We stayed at the Country Inn and Suites Clive for two nights over Christmas and would recommend this hotel. We felt the rooms and bathrooms were large with plenty of space for everyone. The lobby is especially comfortable, and we made use of the snacks for sale next to the front desk. There was a very nice selection of goodies for sale, and what you couldn't find there you could find at the gas station that was nearby. Our room was near the lobby and faced the parking lot on the ground floor and we had no issues with the noise level. Yes, you could hear people talking as they passed outside your door but we did not find it to be a problem. The breakfast bar had very good breakfast burritos, juice and coffee.

We stay frequently in the West Des Moines area and would highly recommend this hotel!
