“Somewhat Isolated, but Nice”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

We spent two nights here and found it very good. Check-in was a breeze and Maggie at the front desk was very courteous and helpful. Our 2 queen bed studio suite was roomy and the satellite tv programming offered a wide variety of channels to watch. The complimentary breakfast was the standard Hampton Inn fare, however the breakfast area offered an eclectic mix of seating options, some not very conducive to eating, but people seemed to manage.

Although a relatively newer property, the hotel sat alone in the middle of nowhere, very isolated, except sharing the land with an Iowa Department of Transportation building. The only entertainment within walking distance was across the parking lot, watching the school bus and tractor trailer drivers trying to pass their parking tests.

Still, there were multiple stores and restaurants less than 10 minutes away in the town of Ankeny and there was easy access to/from I-35.

A very good place to stay.

The room I received had two Queen Beds and was on the third floor. It was HUGE and looked great. Then I sat on the couch and noticed water rings on the side tables. What does that mean? It means they didn't clean the room properly, if they missed the tables, what else did they not clean? It made the stay a little uncomfortable. Everything else about this hotel was just as expected in a Hampton Inn.

It was a nice hotel. Quiet, clean, nice staff when we arrived. Housekeeping is a little too pushy in the AM but they're just doing their jobs. We stayed here because it was close to Adventureland and happened to be close to my lady friends sisters house. Adventureland was disappointing, but the hotel was not!

Great quiet location in the heart of Altoona, Iowa. Minutes away from Adventureland Park. Outside looks outstanding. Pool and Hot Tub are top notch! The Pool is not freezing like most! Just right. Staff at this location go above and beyond for service. Very happy with stay.

Very nice Hampton Inn---fairly new building, very easy access off I-35 just north of I-80. Very quiet, good staff and excellent breakfasts. The price is high compared to other Hampton Inns but we were told they are in a great location and rooms go quickly. Demand is high so they can get a bigger price for each room.

My husband and I always aim to stay at a Hilton hotel whenever we are on the road. We appreciate the clean and comfortable facilities. Ankeny Hampton was no exception. Everything was perfect. Thanks for a great stay.

For a Hampton Inn, this hotel was disappointing. When I pay over $100 for a hotel room, I expect an above average experience. Unfortunately this did not happen. Our room was on the second floor - when we got off the elevator there was a dirty upholstered chair sitting against the wall. When we got to our room there was hair on the bathroom floor and in the shower. We could not get the wireless internet connection to work and we when we tried watching television the signal kept fading in and out and finally stopped working altogether. There were stains on one of the pillowcases and 2 of our towels and the caulking in the shower needed replaced. The good points were the water pressure in the shower was nice, the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was good.
