Newest first
2.0 Poor
Cons:Room was filthy, furniture was destroyed and overall room was disgusting. I don’t believe they cleaned the room at all. Even the silverware had old food on it. Won’t recommend anyone stay there the whole property needs to be redone. New furniture and carpeting would be needed in EVERY room to be acceptable.
8.0 Very good
Pros:Penthouse 2 bathrooms kitchen comfortable pull-out couch pet friendly great access to freeway plenty of parking
Cons:stairs were challenging but expected fitted sheet for pull-out couch didn’t fit room was clean but was a bit outdated would have loved log for the fire
7.7 Good
Pros:Newly renovated
Cons:Exterior could use work
3.1 Poor
Cons:We had a leak in the kitchen area and the bath tub could use some work
5.1 Fair
Pros:Full kitchen was nice if we needed to stay longer. Apartments converted into hotel. Pool was clean.
Cons:Hot tub was just warm, mold on ceiling, bad urine smell in room, no sheets or blankets or pillows for the pull out bed.
6.2 Okay
Pros:For the money, you can't get a better room, with as much space. The bath area is really private, set in the back of the room, not by the front door as per usual. Everything seemed faily clean. THe bed was not the newest but was comfortable. The common area for breakfast was very nice and attractive. WE didn't use the pool.
Cons:In general the place is not being maintained. The entrance to our room was unsightly and falling apart. A bit scary actually. There is no attempt at landscaping anything. The bathroom floor was coming up where the shower water had seeped underneath. There was a spider on one of the pillows when we were getting ready for bed.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Large space, friendly staff and good breakfast
Cons:Road noise
8.5 Very good
Pros:I really like the layout. The separate buildings gave it mountain resort feel, which I appreciated.
6.8 Okay
Pros:Free internet, breakfast, and access to a local gym are great.
Cons:My non-smoking room smelled like smoke and irritated my allergies.
6.0 Okay
Pros:We really like the location and it really fits our shopping needs in the Des Moines, IA area.
Cons:We stay at this location several times each year, actually every time we stay overnight in the Des Moines area. We were very disappointed with the aging condition of our room and the lack of upkeep of the property. Not only do we enjoyed staying at this location, but also at other Midwest USA locations. We were really shocked at the condition of our room!!!
