One of the worst Best Westerns we have ever stayed at. It is a good local just off Hwy 80/35. Our room was "in the back" and as we drove around, our dread increased. This isn't a horrible neighborhood, but it does have a higher crime rate. No security, little lighting. Our room was moderately clean but old. Everything about this hotel seems "worn down." The room was really big though. We had to walk through many doorways (through unheated hallways) to get to the pool - which was HUGE and warm. They had an area for playing and a separate one for lap swim. Dial up internet only. The bestwestern website can get you a $60/night rate which is moderately good for the area. No breakfast but did get a discount coupon for the diner that is attached. Food was good but diner food. There are quite a few restaurants in the surrounding area. We were supposed to stay 3 nights, cancelled remaining 2 nights upon check-in. There really are no hotels in a 2-3 mile radius of this area. Really, I would try to stay in another Des Moines area. The hotels in this area all are generally old and have problems, but the Best Western seems to have more than the others.
