Very nice hotel, good bedroom and all is clean. Need to improve the breakfast, but not a big deal...

My husband and I stayed at the Microtel in Urbandale for three nights during our vacation. We had a mini-suite, which included a sitting are with a sofa in addition to the sleeping area. We had stayed at one other Microtel, where we had a standard room which was very small, so this one seemed huge by comparison. Everything looks relatively new and very clean. The showerhead was fine (skimpy shower heads that provide very little water are one of my pet peeves). We experienced no noise problems (another of my hotel pet peeves). The location is convenient to several are attractions, including the Living History Farms, and there a a number of restaurants nearby. The staff was friendly and helpful about recommending restaurants and attractions to see. The breakfast was about average, mostly carbs, juice, milk, and coffee. If you want a more comprehensive breakfast, the Village Inn nearby is excellent. The Wi-Fi signal was fairly weak and slow, but that was the case at every place we stayed on our trip, so I cannot single this place out. In any case it worked well enough for our needs. The room came with all the usual amenities (coffee maker, iron, ironing board, etc.) but nothing extra. I did not see any guest laundry machines, and Microtels as a rule do not have pools. Please keep in mind that Microtel's focus is basic accomodations at a good price. If you want a huge, hot, cooked-to-order breakfast, and a gigantic room that can hold the entire clan for your family reunion, go elsewhere. If you want a clean, comfortable, reasonably priced room in a convenient location, the Microtel will fit your needs very well.

Hotel smelled pretty bad. Although our rooms seemed clean, it was hard to think that you were in a clean room as you had to keep smelling "that" smell.
Breakfast was pretty weak. There was hardly any variety and they were running out a lot. The front desk person had to run the front desk, get the food for the breakfast, and heat up her food that she brought from home over in the micro that guest were having to use. Maybe more workers would help.
We were also almost double charged. We told the worker when we arrived that we already paid, but she was not going to give us the keys if we didn't pay again. In the morning we got things figured out with the a.m. worker (the one that was having to do everything else too.) She was very apologetic for the problem.

This was our second visit to this hotel and we found it met our basic needs. Our queen bed room was clean with a pleasant view of fields and scrub trees from the window: not a parking lot! We had a refrigerator and a microwave as well as a small sink and a sofa bed as this was considered a small one-room "suite" all for a low "AARP" rate -- under $60 with tax! This is a modern building (probably built around 2000) so there are more electrical outlets for all the gadgets we travelers depend upon. Front desk staff were polite and helpful replacing a broken ice bucket and handling other minor requests.

Room Tip: Be aware that the main entrance doors are heavy and lack ADA opener buttons. Inside, the hotel is m...
