Our visit started with Jason almost running past us to the front door thinking that someone had hit our car while we were walking in. That level of energized Customer Care was always therefrom Jason, Ashley and their staff. We're traveld for years and even on this trip, these folks created the Best Stay and Service of any we can...

This hotel had a clean environment, kind staff and good service. It's close to food places and theater where you can enjoy a night out with your friends along with making memories. Over all experience was good and I would recommend AmericInn Lodge & Suites for anyone looking for a place to relax with near places to dine out.

1st time staying at the Americinn in Ankeny. I'm in the area every fews weeks on business at other hotels of same level. Happy with place, close to interstate and easy to head into DesMoines for business. Like rooms as they have concrete floors and walls so it is quiet and you can't hear other people in the hotel above...

Facility was up to AmericInn standards which are quite high. I was annoyed upon entering the room after checkin at night to find the light switch by the door did nothing. The lamp that was on the switched circuit had been turned off at the lamp so it was a matter of groping around to find a light.

When we first arrived the girl that checked us in was not pleasant. She didn't smile and was not very receptive. It was like she wanted to be anywhere but there. The next morning the guy behind the desk was super nice and very accommodating. And the breakfast was nice.

First room we got the carpet was wet, second room when we arose in the morning we had insects in the bathroom. All they said was we killed the insects. Worst Americinn I ever stayed in. Never once offered a discount on the room.

We stayed one night in a 2-queen room and found it to be quite clean and comfortable. The new decor made the room feel fresh, though the carpet was very dirty-looking. The room was also a bit dark, even with all the lamps on. Like other AmericInns, the sink area is located outside the bathroom. That works fine for us,...

This hotel is a good hotel. The employees could be a little friendlier but other than that we will be back. No elevator, so if you need one stay on the first floor. Pet free and smoke free. Ice machine only on the first floor which is not ideal. There is a pool and hot tub. Overall good stay.
