Two of us stayed here while traveling on business. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful.. The rooms were clean and quiet. There was a free breakfast but we did not eat until later in the morning.

The location is perfect, the staff are very nice but this is an overpriced re-painted 2-3 star hotel. Our room was small, the bed frame was not assembled right , which left a steel bar extending out --could catch your shin . The room smelled like animal(?) urine. The manager came and checked it out and was embarrassed. All they...

Pulled in late with no reservations and did get a room. Bed was comfortable. The bathroom was tiny, really tiny. No counter to put toiletries on. Very little room to get self and luggage through the entry. We have stayed in a room 3 sizes bigger area at this place. We have now stayed in their best and their worst....

The hotel is under new ownership, however the service has not changed. Adina, who checked me in was outstanding. She recognized me as a return guest and welcomed me as an old friend. This place is always clean and quiet, a great place to stay

Comfort Inn, Altoona, Iowa, located at 2101 Adventureland Drive with Adventureland Amusement Park, and Prairie Meadows Casino & Hotel across the street to the south. We choose this property because I am a Choice Rewards Member and because of the proximity of this property to the Iowa State Fairgrounds as we were in the Des Moines Metro to attend that...

We booked this because it is pet friendly and also near the casino. Liked the casino more than the hotel. Rooms small, breakfast very skimpy. They put us in a disabled room ( meant to ask if that was policy when traveling with a pet), and it was a bit awkward for us. Price seemed awfully high. Slept well, and...

Great place to stay. I was there for almost 3 months and the staff was always friendly. Kristy and Savanna would always help me as needed in a friendly and professional manner. I will miss staying there.

We booked a block of hotels with them for our wedding. They were difficult to get in touch with during the process to see how the block was filling up. Several of our guests had a hard time booking or did not get the rate in our block. Upon wedding time, two members of our bridal party showed up on...

We arrived on a Friday night for a long held reservation for a wedding of a friend. The first negative came when they informed us that they had booked us for the wrong two nights. Rather than apologizing for a mistake and offering help to rectify it, the front desk clerk told us that the reservation was as they had...

Anymore, if I can find a hotel close to anything for less than $100, I do not expect much. This hotel, about a mile from Adventureland Park, was a pleasant surprise. The hotel and room were clean. The breakfast was nice. The staff was friendly. And, as stated above, the price was reasonable. I would recommend this hotel over the...

“Our Tip for you is to stay across the Street at Adventureland Inn.”
  • Toilet build-up where water enters the toilet bowl at top of bowl. This is long-term buildup
  • Our Room Shower Shelf area. Distressed and in need of better investment and maintenance upkeep.
