Of course, they increased their rates because the state fair was going on. $150 was outrageous for the room and lack of services we received. Do not expect any comforts that... More

This is an extended-stay place. The rooms have stoves, sinks and a decent size refrigerator. But, that's all you get. No cooking utensils, coffee maker, plates, and what I consider a "normal" compliment of stuff. I could not believe they don't even provide lamps on the bedside tables, nor will you find them on the wall above. But for most... More

When I first got there the wrong room was saved for me, however, Ken was very apologetic and concerned for me and my health. The next morning Lori was also the same and immediately was able to place me in the correct room for the rest of the week. The stay was awesome and welcoming. A place I will definitely... More

Great value for your money. The staff are super friendly. There was a discrepancy in our bill and Lori was awesome; she took care of it right away. The rooms have a good amount of space and it is really nice and convenient to have the kitchenette.

My daughter and I were in Des Moines for a concert and stayed here. We found the accommodations to be clean and our single studio room was pretty spacious. This isn't a place with a lot of frills, but we were there to sleep so it suited our needs perfectly. It was easy to access the hotel from I35 and... More
