I selected this hotel for an overnight stay while attending my son's graduation from Drake University. Check-in was a bit slow because there were a lot of guests for a wedding held on the site checking in who arrived when we did, but the staff handled it effiiciently and we were soon checked in. The rooms and the rest of the property felt brand-new and everything was spotless. Front desk staff was ready to help with maps and information. There's a Fitness Center and an indoor pool that are on the smallish side, but the usual for this type of hotel. Beds were extraordinarily comfortable. My parents were there also and my Dad thought the bathroom a bit small- he said he preferred a separate sink/vanity area.
My husband and I got breakfast coupons- not sure if it was because it was included in our room rate or because of our Gold status. Everyone else had to pay- it was under $10/person and included omelets cooked to order, the usual fruits, cereals and pastries, and biscuits with artery-clogging suausage gravy- my husband's favorite.
The immediate area includes many restaurants (Texas Road House and a Mexican one within walking distance) and if you make a left turn out of the hotel onto 86th, there's a Dahl's supermarket up the road with everything, including a full liquor license.
It was a hectic but happy weekend and this was a great place to spend the night!
