Like in my past reviews of this hotel, we were once again blown away with the excellence in service we received on 8/8/14. We checked in late after being at the State Fair. Check-in was super quick. Alex helped us out and she was so friendly. I noticed our room description was different than what I had reserved online. She...

This is a small Midwestern chain resort. This hotel features an outdoors/woodsy theme with some Iowa flair. We traveled with a family of four (2 children ages 2 and 7). Our room was very clean, updated, and comfortable. We utilized the pool and room service, both of which were good. The pool room is quite large with a Jacuzzi hot...

This is a nice place to stay with children. The decor is nice and the beds are comfy. It is also very quiet. On a previous stay, there was a large athletic event in town, and the rooms were still quiet, despite the many revellers in the hotel. The kids love the swim indoor/outdoor pool. Location is great. You can...

My wife and I ended our vaction at this hotel in Des Moines area. We had issues with the front desk when we check in not charging our credit card right and got them to fix it to the actual room rate we were quoted. When we left we wanted to leave it on the card and when she tried...

Dear Jason, Thank you for sharing your concerns. I notice in reviewing your stay folio that you were using two different debit cards and those are treated by the bank issuer completely differently than credit cards. Once we run a debit card, your bank puts a hold on the account. When you switched to another debit card, the same thing...

This was our second stay at Stoney Creek Cottages. We had a corner theme suite both times. If you are looking for a clean, quiet and homey get-away hotel, this is for you! A young man named Ethan made our stay so much nicer~very helpful!

We've stayed twice within the last few months (due to planned events in Des Moines). While the hotel is in a quiet location off the interstate, it is within short driving ranges to many locations in the area (shopping, restaurants, etc.). During our stays, we had 2 different experiences (good and bad), but overall here are some similarities: Pros: Clean...

The good: Quiet location off the interstate, cool theme, delicious smelling lobby, reasonable price, very friendly people The bad: The crib we requested was just a playpen with a terribly stained mattress. The baby ended up staying in our bed, which was not very restful. The breakfast was a barely adequate continental served in a small room. I think we...

Stayed here a couple times now. Love the lodge theme. Its very homey and the workers are all very friendly. Best hotel for the money. Offer a nice discount for John Deere employees. Swimming pool is amazing as is hot tub.

We stayed in one of the theme suite whirlpool rooms and had a very relaxing stay. Quiet stay with a fireplace and king sized bed. Felt clean and well kept. Close to restaurants and movie theater. We will definitely book again.

We had a very nice stay! We were very surprised by how nice the room was though a bit dark. The bathroom was nice but rather small. The pool was great! Indoor and outdoor! The lobby smelled wonderful every time we went through it.
