Room was nice. Breakfast good and varied. Staff accommodating.

Bathroom door was in the way of the bathroom sink....rm 116.

Heard they are doing complete renovation to modernize. Really hate to see departure of the Knight in Shining Armor on his horse large statue outside the motel. It has been a fixture in Altoona Iowa for years & years. Maybe they can think of someway to save him or donate to the local city park.

The person at the desk was like. The breakfast area was nice.

The room was described as having a recliner but there wasn't one. The TV was old and very small. The breakfast bar was out of food.

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.

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!

Beds were amazing! Quick, conveinient access to Des Moines. Great breakfast options.

There were a lot of us checking in at the same time..which can be hard to plan for. And, the hotel was sold out. So the 1 employee at the front desk had a lot to do with the check ins and snack bar. 2 employees would have helped given occupancy level.

Great experience. Would definitely stay again!

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.

Nice room, as expected

The pool was cold, which you could expect, but the hot tub was very cold - no heat at all and unusable. We asked them to turn it up Thursday night and it never went up in the three days we were there. Hotel staff let us down by not acting. + ants @ pool.

Indoor pool area had infestation of ants, crawling near hot tub plus all over couple of pool side chairs. Thoussands of them coming from wall. Again, hot tub had zero heat and staff would not turn it up during our 3 day visit. With my stiff joints, we count on a hot tub working after a long trip. very disappointing.

Room was pleasant and comfortable and I really appreciated that the chair in the room was a recliner. Had never experienced that before. Flat Screen HDTV was great, although I never did find the HBO channel that was supposed to be available.

Mattresses were not very comfortable. Restaurant dinner menu was not impressive. Elevators were horrible. Slow, cramped, shaky, and noisy. Did not hold more than two people with luggage comfortably. I was on the 7th floor and it took forever when called.

Even for the Priceline rate, I expected better quality overall.

The location was perfect, and the availability of lower-cost parking in the ramp across the street (instead of paying for valet parking which was also available) was great! As always, the room was very nice and we always appreciate a refridgerator.

We always have a great experience with Marriott.

location, price

The pool was down for maintenance. The whole hotel smelled like cigarette smoke. You had to lift our door to get it to latch. There were yellow streaks down the bathroom wall. toilet leaked, garbage in the tub drain, only 2 towels, the beds were awful.

When we went downstairs to ask for more towels, the lady behind the counter could hardly speak English. It was so cold in the morning when we were eating breakfast the lady at the front desk was wearing a winter coat. My kids had to go back to the room to dress warmer to be able to eat. When you walk down the hallway, there are dips in the floor. I felt as if my foot was going to drop to the first floor...

We were in town for a soccer tournament. Needed two beds but they were sold out. They put us in a king suite which worked perfect for 3 of us. Bed was comfortable, sofa wasn't bad. Room was clean & updated. We'll definely stay again when in Ankeny.

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.
