The hallways smell of smoke even if you have a non smoking room. The hallways and rooms were musty and sticky. We couldn't sleep it was so smelly and uncomfortable. We opened the window and had them run a de-smoker in our room but it didn't help.

We had two rooms. Both had an unattractive smell. One room had much better furniture than the other. Breakfast was marginal. No yogurt or fresh fruit.

Fairly close to where our activities were located.

Could have had a little bigger breakfast to choose from. A little pricey.

Location is convenient and easy to get to. Just outside Des Moines.

Bid for best price, so got HC accessible room. A/C was noisy, but nice night to have window open anyway. Unfortunately, the smokers bench was right outside my window so the choice was second hand smoke or noisy p-tac. I opted for the latter.

The courtyard was very nice. It had a fire place to turn on, and since it was a little cool that evening it was very enjoyable.

One of the staff was very rude when I asked about smoking in the courtyard.

The rest of the staff was very nice. We were very impressed with the rooms and food.

This hotel met or exceeded all of my expectation. Breakfast was amazing, the pool and hot tub were perfect and the room was clean and comfortable.

Nothing

I would recommend this hotel to families. The pool and breakfast made travelling with kids very easy. The view was amazing and best of all, I heard no other guests in the rooms above or to the side of us!

Location was perfect for what we where doing.

Our room was a smoking room and as a non-smoker, it stunk. Staff tried their best to remidy the problem, but only had smoking rooms open.

Stayed here several times, this was the worst experience we have had.

Lobby was attractive. The curtains closed nice for privacy and block the light. Good hot water and water pressure. Free Wi-Fi. Non smoking rooms.

Both of the beds were horrific! They literally bowed inward in the middle! My husband and I could not sleep together. Hallways dirty and rundown. Toilet seat was broke. Light switches and edges of the doors dirty. Yellow stain on one of the bed covers.

You can tell some attempts have been made to upgrade and those attempts look nice. But with the hotel not being kept clean those attempts are moot. I can take it being run down but I couldn't take those very old BROKE DOWN beds! More effort needs to be made to clean ALL of the room, door ways, light switches etc. (they were dirty!) And there is no excuse for the broken toilet seat bolt that almost made you fall off the toilet! We didn't complain because it was late and we didn't have time for them to mess with it. Also we booked for two people and only got ...

We were a full hour ahead of schedule and they were more than welcoming in giving us an early check in. They made it a painless and speedy process and were incredibly friendly.

Not enough pillows on the bed. I'm a bed hog and my girlfriend is a pillow hog. With a lack of pillows I had to listen to her nag all night instead of getting sleep. I wanted to smother her but she had all the good smothering pillows tucked under her arms

Elevator was always readily available it seemed. Never had to wait at all. Check out was extremely fast and we had zero complaints about this hotel.

The staff was great very friendly. The room was amazing and when I got there I asked for a fridge and they accommodated me right away. Bed was so comfortable. The view was great of Des Moines as well.

Not really the best area of Des Moines but the hotel has always been known in that spot.

Overall I loved my stay and for the price definitely met my expectations and beyond.

Door lock would not lock due to perhaps previous door jam. Needed more than two small pillows on queen size bed.

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
