A nice motel, clean and comfortable rooms. Our biggest gripe was there were no 1st floor rooms and the sole elevator was painfully slow, and always in use as the motel was packed. We wound up using the stairs which our ancient dog did not appreciate. Good dog walking area. Free wine at happy hour which hit the spot. We...

Pet Friendly and the pet friendly room was very nice and good size. Managers Happy Hour was a nice surprise and we took part in that. The morning breakfast was very satisfying and well presented. The hotel was situated just off of I-80/I-35 in Clive, Iowa and worked out very well for our traveling. I would highly recommend this property...

Nice looking hotel, with people who wish to please, but the arrangement of guest room amenities and the breakfast area set up are not at all efficient and are actually downright awkward and confusing.

We've stayed here several times and each visit is a treat. The upgrade was a pleasant surprise and the room was spacious, beds comfortable, with breakfast the next morning top notch. The room had two TV's--the one in the living room area had garbled sound quality, which made use of that room difficult. The staff person was delightful over the...

We were there for 2 days and had a wonderful time. Internet was in & out a couple of times. Offered a social hour mid-week, which was very much appreciated - snacks, beverages, etc. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Stayed at this Best Western heading east on vacation. The motel is a little tucked away near the freeway and can be challenging to find the parking lot. It is in a location that seemed very safe and secure. There were no problems with check-in Positive: -Staff seemed very pleasant and willing to help. -Rooms had hard flooring which made...

Location perfect for us and entire stay was nice. Free room upgrade was a pleasant surprise at check-in. Breakfast and pool area were clean. Only negative was the staff's odd lack of interest in assisting us in getting booked into another BW hotel further along on our trip.

Room was clean. Sink needed thorough cleaning. The breakfast needs to be fixed. Bacon rounds were burnt & greasy. Eggs not tasty. Stayed at Best Western's many times but this one may change my mind about staying again. Steering clear of them for awhile.

I stayed here two nights over a weekend and had a pleasant experience. Great location with a two places to eat within walking distance. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable.

I stay at this Best Western several times a year, when I am visiting Des Moines. The staff id very friendly and very accommodating. Rooms are very clean and well maintained. If there is a problem during your stay it is corrected immediately. I use this motel as a barometer for the others that I stay at. If you are...
