Location was good and they had a diner attached to the property. Convenient for food needs
The bathroom sink didn't drain very well. I couldn't upgrade to 2 queens when I found out my daughter was going to join me for the trip. They said they were full.
Enjoyed the hotel, no complaint's
there was nothing that I did not like
Room was filthy told the workers about it 2 days in a row. Finally after the second day they did something.
Free breakfast free internet
keys stopped working when returning from breakfast.
The air was nice and cool inside the room.
No elevator, the bed was badly worn and felt like my wife and I were falling towards the center all night long, room service did not come to the room at all one day and when we called the front desk to ask for new towels and let them know they were rude.
Actually the motel was even better than a 2-star rating! Everything was great!
This was one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. The room was terrible and the AC didn't work. The carpet and the bed linens were damp. The shower was dirty and the over all room was just terrible. I will never ever go back.
Staff was very accommodating.
I liked the diner in the same building complex.
It was an older hotel, run down with no upgrades. Carpet had stains and furniture where old. The location was alright going east on 80.
The price. We needed a 3 night reservation to attend graduation at Iowa State University. All of the hotels in Ames were charging $--- or more a night. We stayed at this hotel for $--- a night.
The building has seen better days. My bed had a broken box spring. Therefore it sagged in the center of the bed.
Clean, comfortable bed, hot water, great restaurant for breakfast
A little dated, slightly run down, fitness room wasn't great
Located within 15 minutes of downtown Des Monies.Near a large shopping center
Needs a lot of updating
nice diner attached to hotel
Hotel could use updating and some deep cleaning.
Breakfast at restaurant was good.
bathroom sink did not drain and toilet bearly flushed. Furniture was broken, bed was worn out.
Diner hooked on to hotel so since it was cold and snowing could go to the diner and eat and drink
Said free breakfast but there was none
You stood in water while taking a shower, the sink didn't drain properly, the toilet handle had to be wiggled to keep from running. The ice machine in hall sounded like ice dumping in night, the nice pool was quite chilly. I
Our toilet ran the first night when we went to tell the front desk she sent the maintenance person down right away. He fixed it right away and we did not have any other issues with it.
The shower would jump from freezing cold to burning hot.
Have stayed here before but will never again
no internet, air conditioner did not work, not very clean, staff at desk was rude and unhelpful no ice machine working
The free breakfast, with a great waitress.
The man at the desk charged us an extra $20. It did not seems correct and he was not friendly.
Staff member at desk upon check in was helpful and friendly.
After one shower in the morning, we ran out of hot water. The rest of my party had cold showers.
The dinner next door and the big hotel rooms
This was the first time ever that I stayed somewhere and they would not let us have a late check out time. Very disappointing.
No shower curtain. Room needed cleaning. Carpet dirty. Bedding not clean. Hotel in desperate need of updating.
Said on website there was free breakfast and there was not, dirty small room and thet would not switch rooms..said they were full and they were not. No pool towels no front desk help...I could go on and on!
The people at the front desk.
They ran out of bath towels on our last night there and there was only one towel for the two of us.
Location to interstate.
Previously a smoking room (I'm guessing) very stale smell.
Nothing. The room smelled like smoke even though it was a non-smoking room and the bed was concave.
Horrible smell in the room (clearly was once a smoking room), horrible location, super weird setup with having to go in a different door than the actual hotel lobby.
