“Nice Hotel if you like wet FLOORS!”
Reviewed 3 August 2012

We stopped here on the way back from Colorado. The cost for the Saturday night stay was $90. This seemed resonable, until I got in the room. The room looked clean. The problem was the floor was wet. My family was already in bed when I got to the room and noticed this problem. Wet would be one thing, but when I looked at the bottom of my white socks, the socks were stained black from the filth in the carpet. This was discussing and I'm not that picky of a person. We didn't want to change hotels, because it was late and everyone was in the PJ's. We did get another room. It was better, but my children thought the bed linens were damp. I didn't notice.
The breakfast was average.
The exercise room was more like an exercise closet: one cycle and one trend mill.
There were other options at this exit. I would shop around and I would not recommend this hotel!

We stayed here on a trip out West. Smelled like stale cigarettes but was otherwise clean. Right off the highway but we didn't notice any additional noise. NO ELEVATOR...probably the worst part of our stay. You could easily stay somewhere else if you need more frills. This will work for those on a budget though.

I have stayed in Des Moines hotels for 17 years. A huge convention sold out every room in town except this location. I would not book it if others were available,,,,,but,,,my room was fairly clean. The bed was hard. The hotel needs updating but it's not over the hill yet. They pinched me $90 because of supply and demand. The breakfast was slim. I would stay here in the future only if they gave me a knock out rate. Free internet and friendly counter staff.

This hotel will do in a pinch, but would pay a few more bucks to stay somewhere else. Clean, but loud and a stale cigarette smell permeated the halls. Breakfast was adequate, staff were nice, location is easy by the interstate. No elevator. Hotel is for sale and with a remodel it would be great.

Room Tip: No elevator

This was one of the few trips that we traveled to a dog show without dogs so stayed in a non-pet-friendly location. There were for sale signs in front of the building -- if it were sold and updated it would help the review.

Pros:
*Close to the Interstate for easy on and off.
*Lots of fast food and family style restaurants nearby to make it easy for families.
*Price - although I would happily pay more to not hear all the other people in the hotel.
*Staff were friendly.

Cons:
*Loud -- and I mean really loud. Not the Interstate like you might expect but all the other guests. It sounded like stampeding herds of cattle in the hallways and we suspect the room above was inhabited by Bigfoot and his family -- should have called the Animal Planet show to let them know!
*Really tired rooms and building.
*Bathroom - Peeling paint in the bathroom (Room 143) sinks were deeply scratched and stained. Evidence of cigarettes being allowed in the room at some point with burn marks on the bathroom counters. Shower had no safety mat and nothing to grab onto if you slipped. Shower head was very low and not very powerful. Water temperature was good and get quite hot. Toilet flushed fine but ran-and-ran-and-ran after... to the point where we started laughing anytime the toilet was used. Tiles were cracked, grout missing and mildew apparent on most.
*Carpet needed some help with tears and snags.
*Hallways all smelled faintly of stale cigarette smoke.

If you are a senior and getting their discount, you can't beat the price. The facility is showing it's age, but it is very comfortable and improvements are being made. The staff is helpful and service is very good. Location is great for north Des Moines and close to resturants and shopping.
