My room was well maintained and clean. The only things I would make better would be closer access to the lobby area. Also, the TV remote was a replacement that did not have a . or a - on it, so scrolling through the channels was the only way to find channels. Also, my door had to be pulled shut...

Just needed to get away for the weekend. Great location. Plenty to do around Ankeny and Des Moines. Rooms are a little dated but very comfortable and clean. Enjoyed a beer at the bar the night we came in. The diner attached is very busy and delicious food. Enjoyed a Bloody Mary with breakfast. A Must have. Pool side room...

Didn't have my on line reservation. Provided a room and a special rate. This was a lifesaver, as it was late and motels were full everywhere.

Great place if you want to go to Des Moines or Ames, it is the perfect distance in between. Friendly staff, safe community. I am over in Des Moines 2 days a week and staff does a great job accommodating its guests. New remodel, King beds are comfortable.

This is not a place I will ever stay again. The hotel lobby smelled like an odd mixture of mildew and pool chlorine. The lobby area is deceiving as it appears to have been recently updated, but the rooms leave much to be desired. It was quite clear the floor hadn't been vacuumed. We found the plastic piece from a...

We have stayed at this hotel a few times when traveling to Ankeny. This was by far our worst experience. I waited over 15 minutes to check-in due to no one at the front desk. There was a note that said be back soon. Found a hair barrett in the bed. There was no shower curtain. The bed had pieces...
