Based on other TA reviews, we chose this hotel for our stopping point on the drive to Colorado. Agree with all the positive reviews - close to 80, but without highway noise. Good basic free breakfast in the morning. Very friendly staff. Pool was just the right size for our 6 year old. I would caution travelers WITHOUT kids, that they may not be enchanted with the pool here because the night we stayed it was loaded with kids -thus, a pretty loud, echo-ey experience at the pool.

Staff helped us find a pizzeria (even gave us coupons) to order for our late arrival dinner. But there were plenty of restaurants nearby.

Our room looked exactly like the photos on the site, and it was very clean. I have to comment on the beds - my husband and I slept soundly all night. We almost never do our first night in a hotel. So I have to attribute that the comfy beds.

I got a great rate - $125 for 2 double beds and it included a Webkins for my kid. Everybody was happy.

It's exactly what you expect from a recently built Hampton Inn. Close to I-80, I-35, I-235 and West Des Moines' business district. Staff was friendly. Room was tidy and neat. Breakfast was the standard fruit, danishes, cereal, and bland eggs.

Plenty of restaurants within driving distance along University Drive to the north or along Jordan Creek Pky to the south. Not much within walking distance.

We spent 1 night here en route to Wisconsin. The hotel staff was fantastic; very warm and welcoming. There was a Manager's reception that afternoon with free beer, wine, and munchies. After checkin the manager called us to make sure our room was satisfactory and said just let them know if there was anything we needed. We room was beautiful and extremely clean. This is probably the best hotel staff we've ever encountered. Will stay here every time we are in the area.

I came into town with a friend for the shopping package and we just had a great time. We came on a Thurs and Friday. Thurs night they had a social hour for their guests and it was just really nice to feel at home while we were away from our families. We will definently be back!!!!!!

Walked in for a room when we needed to stop for bad weather. We'd stayed here a year ago and first tried closer properties a few miles away but rates were too high, so we returned to this Hampton Inn, and it was worth the extra couple miles. It's clean and staff are friendly. Pool was very nice and breakfast improved from last year - beyond continental breakfast to now including hot sausage and french toast sticks. Our room was very, very quiet. Bedding is ultra-comfortable.

Hampton that has been rehabed this year. This is the best, cleanest Hampton we have ever stayed at. Nice staff. Standard Hampton features. If you haven't tried Hampton lately they are really nice for the money. Breakfast is minimal, but enough to get you on the road. Free USA Today M-F. Free Wireless internet in room. Great beds, pillows and bed linens. 24 hr coffee in lobby and coffee maker in room with coffee. Stayed 1 night on cross country drive. Don't miss this very nice hotel just off I-80. We had dinner at The Club Car Restaurant in Clive about 5 min away. It was a very nice local restaurant/bar restaurant.

My husband and I recently stayed one night at this hotel on our way to Kansas City. The rooms have been recently updated with beautiful wood decor, one of the nicer Hampton rooms we have stayed in. Our only complaint was the amount of highway noise in our room. The location, just off I-80, is convenient but very noisy during the night from the truck traffic. If you sleep soundly, this is a nice hotel, although maybe a little pricey for Des Moines.
