Close to home.

YES, the NO FOOD OR DRINK allowed in the pool area. Rule. I wanted to be able to visit with family members while the kids swam. Instead, I sat in the pool area while my family members stood in the lobby consuming their drinks so they could enter.

Trash was set outside a room down the hall and it remained there until we checked out the following morning. There were kids running through the hallways, doors slamming well into the night. ... more

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.

Location was very close to the event we came to town for. Staff was very helpful. Room was clean, but there was peeling paint in the bathroom. It was very noisy above us. Having breakfast in the morning was a very nice convenience.

The noise from above us was not good. Woke us during the night both nights we were there.

It was a good location for us and met our needs. ... more

The hotel used to be really nice back in the day. Not now.

The rooms on the 1st floor where they put us was not what the pictures on there website showed. The rooms were dirty n worn down. They need to be updated. It is not a 3 star hotel. I would rate it 2 star in its current condition. The hotel has changed.

well im not sure why some people would give this hotel such bad reviews. Maybe I just happened to stay at the right time, maybe its my simple and go with the flow mindset. but my stay was nothing short than perfect. My girlfriend and I arrived and from the get go I was in aw. (to agree with others, yes its an old hotel..it was built in freaking 1918 what do you expect) The hotel is def antique, my girlfriend and I actually loved the look of the lobby since it reminded her of the titanic, very cool looking elevators, décor everything screamed retro. The room, yes furniture looked old but def comfortable and super cozy. the bathroom was great, with amazing water pressure which is always a plus. The staff was great, never once did we receive anything less than smile and willingless to help. Our room felt a little warm which they front desk apologized for and explained due to the extremely hot temps the air was having trouble keeping up so we were given a fan which really was only used for... ... more

The location of this hotel is phenomenal. We were there during the 80/35 festival and could walk out the door to free music stages. There are so many things within walking distance: Django restaurant, Racoon River Brewing, Americana, Exile Brewery, Pappajohn Sculpture Park, Farmer's Market at Court Avenue, etc. etc. Also, the shuttle was availble most of the time to take us where we wanted to go. There was also free parking on the weekends in a parking garage connected to the hotel. With that said, I was very disappointed with the room's furnishings and carpet. It looked like cheap motel furnishings from the 80s that had been used since the 80s. ... more

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! ... more

It has a large breakfast and the location is close to where I needed tobe.

Because you book on priceline they give you an handicap room. The fan was extremely irritating in the bathroom and could not be shut off separately from the light.

IT is a OK place to stay. But even on priceline it is not cheap so I find somewhat offensive that they make you stay in a handicap room. ... more

Size of the room, bathroom. Bed linens. Lounge was nice.

They said they gave us a large, corner room. However, when we entered the room way down the hall - the two views were parking garage and large heating/air units. No view whatsoever. So we assumed this was our 'room' for our priceline purchase.

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.
