Not clean. No maid service. Had to get towels from staff. Poor beds. No fridge in room. Hot tub shut down. Had to be out early because of a parade on the street.

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.

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.

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.

everything was great, service,clean,comfortable, friendly,good breakfast selection just a overall good experience

the only one flaw is the location,which is right behind and next to another motel. There needs to be a better marked driveway to get into the parking lot

overall if all the Country Inns are as good as this one we will be staying at one if available when we travel/.I recommend this to anybody

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.

This hotel was terrible. The hallways and rooms smelled horrible -- like some major ammonia spill had occurred but it worse...as though they were trying to cover up some other nasty smells. The ceiling by the back entry was falling apart from some apparent water damage -- and the hallway window was cracked to let in some 'fresh' air -- but the cobwebs were so thick and full of bugs it was disgusting. Three of the 4 of us got headaches from the smell -- and the tea in the room tasted like the smell as well. We refused to stay even for one night -- and the hotel refused to give us our money back. We will NEVER EVER stay at another Baymont establishment.

I arrived at the Des Moines Marriott at approximately 12:30PM on a Thursday. The room was not ready yet, as to be expected so we checked our bags and went out for lunch. While at lunch they called and let me know my room was ready which I found very nice. When we picked up our keys they informed us that there was a wrestling tournament of some kind happening and they asked that we wear a plastic wrist band after 5PM otherwise we would not be allowed to get to our room. This was ridiculous to me. They said it was because of the high amount of teenagers there due to the wrestling thing. This did nothing to curb the teens from running around the hotel while their parents got drunk in the hotel bar from the ice chests that they were hiding under their tables. Speaking of the bar, I recommend sticking to bottled beer. I tried having a rum and coke and a friend had a gin and tonic and they were the worst drinks we have ever had. They tasted liked like the liquor had been watered down or ma...

The Staff was friendly, They went out of their way to makes us feel welcome and at home. Room service was outstanding. The sheets. Oh my... the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. They took us to our outing and picked us up when it was over. I can't say enough for the service and the care. It is well located, close to everyting we needed to do. Just a fantastic place to stay. More than recommend it.

Breakfast was varied and fresh

Room was clean, hotel was quiet, beds were comfortable, breakfast had a lot of options. I was disappointed with their customer service, however, because our blow dryer didn't work and even though I called down and they said they were going to replace it, they never did. Normally it would not be a big deal, but I was staying at the hotel so I could be fresh for a conference I was presenting at that morning, but instead of looking professional, I had to go to the conference with wet hair.

The only reason I chose to stay here was the convieniance. But rhe hallways looked like they haven't been vacuumed in a long time, dirt in the bathroom corners, dirt, spills on the walls throughout the room and bathroom, rust and mold in the tub and surrounding, holes barely fixed in the walls. Broken back door so when you go to use the card to let you in.... it won't unlock, so there is tape covering the sensor leaving the hotel unsecure. I wish for a refund as the next night we stayed at another location (due to weather conditions) had much much better accomodations at a much cheaper price...including room service !!!

The whole hotel smelled like smoke. First we were put into a smoking room, then moved to a non-smoking room which still smelled like smoke; room, sheets etc., there was a hole in the ceiling - stuffed with tissue, the TV didn't work, breakfast was extremely limited - the front desk worker kept apologizing for the sparse fare stating that she called the owner and more food was coming, the pool was out of order and the hot tub was empty.

Staff was helpful and friendly! The room was clean and comfortable. The mattress was quite hard but the down comforter and pillows made up for it. The restaurant had friendly bartenders and good drinks. Didn't try the food but saw what others near us were ordering and it looked yummy. Overall we had a great hotel stay and I would go here again. Great value also!

Halls were smelly, no fridge

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.
