10.0 Excellent
Pros: Clean, good location.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was fantastic...but putting the sugar and sweeteners in the food area near the cereals would make more sense than having to go back to the coffee bar to get them. Also some butter over by the pancake machine.....and as an older person with Arthritis I found the pitchers for the juice etc were very heavy and hard to handle.....
Cons: The barn door on the bathroom is awful....noisy and once again hard to move for older arthritic hands. Now the lighting....motel lighting in bathrooms leaves A LOT to be desired.....but this was really bad. My wife had to take the hand mirror(she says a great added touch) out and put it on the window sill to put on her makeup on! Beds were the most comfortable I have ever slept on in a motel as were the pillows. All other aspects of the stay were excellent!
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Modern, new
Cons: I would like a hot tub. The rolling bathroom door is fancy but noisy. The bathroom light is fancy and the blue night light a plus but not overly bright for putting on makeup. A little noisy, baby crying in the middle of the night

Cons: Breakfast was cold and remodeleing downstairs and strong smell from products used
4.3 Okay
Pros: The breakfast was very nice. Certain staff were very polite and helpful, others, not so much. Walk in shower was extra large and bathroom was huge.
Cons: Room had a strange odor we finally found to be two containers of ice cream that some mutt left in the mini-fridge in the room. It's a fridge, not a freezer. It melted and leaked to the bottom where it became a festering mess. The young lady at the front desk was very helpful ( housekeeping was gone for the day). She cleaned it as best as she could and took away the debris left by the former tenants. We nuked the smell with odor eliminator we carry with us just in case. Then , the TV only gets one channel . No biggie, if you like watching the Royal Wedding for 12 hours. The new front desk clerk gives me a blank stare and says" try wiggling the cables, it might help" . Yeah, OK. Can't get it to work. Wait for the manager to start work the next morning and he resets the cable box thats hidden under the tv in a cabinet. My bad, should've looked under the tv and rewired the cable box. Saturday morning at 730 am, awoke to motorcycle , and truck safety classes / license tests being administered by the Iowa DOT outside my window. Sounds like a combination tractor pull/ motorcycle rally. Didn't notice that in the amenities section of the hotel website. If you want to sleep in, ask for a room on the north side of the hotel. If you're going to charge top rates for a room, better act like a 5 star hotel. I've had less trouble at other hotel chains for 1/2 the cost. Very surprised this happened at a Hampton hotel. Must be my turn for an odd occurrence. I'll stay elsewhere next time in Ankeny.

Worst part was this hotel has kitchenettes but NO pots, pans, etc. If you wanted to cook, you had to BUY the pots and pans, etc. This was not disclosed when booking. No hairdryer or iron, lumpy beds, and the room had smelly carpets, and cockroach. Much more but will stop here.

3.8 Mediocre
Cons: After checking off non-smoking, they put me in a smoking room that smellEd putrid with a clothes iron burn hole in the carpet and holes in the screen that was letting flies in. Finally after close to 30 minutes and a lot of arguing I got a different room. No smoke but it was damp, smelled musty and the pillows were flat as dinner plates. Never again
3.3 Mediocre
Cons: I stated a preference for non-smoking they put me in a smoking room that smell overwhelmingly terrible. After 30 minutes of telling me there was nothing they could do they finally gave me another room. It was damp, smelled musty and the pillows were flat as dinner plates. The windows were glazed over with some kind of white film.

When we took the top cover off, there were dried rose pedals on the bed left over from whomever stayed there before us. When we asked for more pillows they had none, and only had one blanket left to give us. The only light that worked in the room was the bathroom and the night table, not the one above the sink or the main light in the room. The stay was terrible i would not recommend.
