An independent hotel that is a gem. My family and I stayed 2 nights for an event in Des Moines. The pool was awesome and it was great to wear out the kids, nice and clean. We got connecting rooms because of the children and we wanted some alone time (or as much as you can have traveling), both were...

Have stayed at this place numerous times in the past and always found it very nice, but those times they were affiliated with a motel chain. This time that was not the case, and it showed. I was there to just get some sleep and avoid a long drive home in the middle of the night after attending a sporting...

Have stayed there a few times, whenever going through the area for business. It has always been clean, quiet, friendly and comfortable. The breakfast could be better, but is normal for the price. The last time that I was there, the pool was being worked on by a couple of workers so could not use it, have encountered this at...

Enjoyed my stay here very much. I am quite fussy when it comes to comfort and cleanliness but I couldn't find even one thing that wasn't completely satisfactory!! Staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. Breakfast was very good!!! Hope to stay there again!!

Desk clerk was very nice, carpets are dirty, tables and bureau in room were filthy on top, don't know if bedspread has every been washed. The breakfast area had no cream, just package items, the place wasn't especially clean either, I don't think they have enough people to do everything.

or would you like to find different lodging?" That's what the manager/owner asked me when I called him about my television not working. Apparently I was a troublesome guest because upon unloading my family's things into the room (which is a lot of stuff when you're traveling with an 18 month old), my son (the 18 month old) crawled under...

I had problems with the reservations, it took a few long distance calls to get it straightened out 2 days before my arrival. I thought it was odd they answer the phone as a "Comfort Inn" but they are not listed on the Comfort Inn website. The outside door security lock was taped over meaning anyone could get in the...

Arrived late at night after driving 14 hours. Made reservation on the road--one of the cheapest hotels with a good rating available. Quick check in, lots of rooms, quiet, parking available for our moving truck and tow trailer plus free breakfast in the morning. I was honestly pleasantly surprised by this place. Would definitely recommend.

An average hotel, the room we had was nice (although I did overhear someone in the hall complaining about "mold, and the sheets don't stay on the bed"). Pool was closed, looked like permanently. It was quiet and easy to get to and the price was right for us. I'd stay here again, a no-frills kind of stay.

I had a coupon so decided to give this place a try. It was odd that there were very few cars (like maybe one) in the parking lot. Checked it out and the interior was very clean, the manager very nice and chatty. The room was spacious, fairly clean and included a microwave and mini fridge. The negatives, the pool...

“My room was on the highway side of the building with a parking lot floodlight pointed directly at my window. This meant that I could choose between an attempt at bringing in some fresh air and no possibility of sleep.”
