"Visiting our daughter in college"
The room was good for why we were in Ankeny, Iowa. We went to visit our daughter who is in college. The advertisement said we could have three people in the room. The room did not have enough bed space for three people. One night we took our daughter off campus and she stayed with us in the hotel room. I asked the person at the desk about a roll away for our daughter (23) years old. He said three people can stay in the room but they did not have any roll away.

"NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE"
I AM A NON SMOKER AND I WAS PUT INTO A SMOKING ROOM WHICH STUNK HORRIBLY AND GAVE ME A TERRIBLE HEADACHE. I ARRIVED AT MY ROOM AFTER 10 PM SO I DID NOT FEEL LIKE I COULD DEMAND A DIFFERENT ROOM. THE STAIRWAY AND HALL CARPETS WERE FILTHY, MY ROOM WAS NOT OVERLY CLEAN, MY TUB FAUCET DRIPPED ALL NIGHT, THE CHAIN LOCK WAS BROKEN, THE WINDOW CURTAIN WAS HANGING OFF THE HOOKS, THE SHOWER CURTAIN WAS MOLDY, THE DRESSERS WERE DAMAGED AND THEIR WERE BURN MARKS ON THE TUB.I DID NOT SEE ANY INSECTS IN MY ROOM. THE LADY AT THE DESK WAS FRIENDLY WHEN I CHECKED IN. THE CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST WAS OK

Cheap hotel. Get what you pay for. Dirty carpet in the halls. Very hard uncomfortable bed. Dirty shower. Room located on street side had excessively bright lights in the parking lot, which interfered with sleeping. Would not stay there again.

The bathroom ceiling was coming down the bottom of the tub where it is rough looked dirty. The breakfast they removed right at 9:00 if you were in there eating they let you finish up but you could not get anything else cause they were putting everything away immediately and they were cleaning the dirty dishes in the sink right there with no soap or rags just their hands and water so I was glad I didnt eat anything but coffee. Also not enough parking close to the hotel.

"Inexpensive, but great room."
We didn't spend a lot of time in the room, but it was in a location near our various destinations. Room was reasonably spacious, bed was very comfortable, everything was meticulously clean - room, bath, breakfast room. Breakfast was decent, too, with Belgian waffles even! I think the hotel has an exercise room, but we didn't use it. It's walkable to adequate eating places. There was also a microwave and mini refrigerator in the room, which we also did not need.

"Adequate for an Overnight"
While our room was clean, the stairs and hallways were unnecessarily dirty. There is always the impact of current use, but the appearance suggested that far more than a daily cleaning was needed. Management should work to elimate, or at least reduce, a lingering smoke oder in the hallways. Our room was clean and though not plush, fine for the night.

"Not worth the price"
I didn't feel the rate I paid fit this Hotel at all. No one should EVER pay more than $70 for a room here on any night of the week. The carpet in the hallway is dingy. The property itself sits on a back parking lot of nicer hotels. I will say the continental breakfast was good and well stocked.

"Affordable, Good Location & Allows Pets"
This hotel was affordable, in a good location and allows pets, but that is the extent of the pluses. There did not appear to be any cleaning going on during the weekend but we did receive fresh towels and the bed was made. There was no regular coffee in our room; when we asked we were told they were out. The day before we left they replaced the coffee maker with a pod version with regular coffee. My Dad's room had a moldy coffee pot that was never changed out. We had a king bed that was very comfortable but only two small pillows. When I asked for an extra pillow I was told they were out. The breakfast bar was very basic: cold cereal, waffles, bread for toast, no protein options. The staff were mostly indifferent to our being there. We stayed away as much as possible.

One of our 3 rooms was pretty dirty. When I took the dog out to do his business the dog areas of grass were covered with waste and it was impossible to not step in it. It was like no one had cleaned up these areas in months. Also was astounded that the back door to the hotel was not locked

"Dog feces everywhere"
Had 3 rooms, one was extremely dirty, cigarette burns quilt was dirty and stained. Worst problem was the common pet areas. I took the dog out and no matter where we went there was pet feces. It was like dogs had been going in these small areas for years and no one ever picked it up. Was impossible to walk there without getting dog feces on my feet. They just need a service to police the pet areas once a week. Other 2 rooms were ok, a though not the cleanest.

"Only Pet Friendly Hotel/Motel in Ankeny, IA!"
I live only 40 minutes away, but I was faced with an overnight or a long drive to/from the night before and two times the next day. Given the subzero weather and late night/early travel, it was a no brainer to find a motel room. This would only be economical if I was also able to bring my blue merle sheltie (small dog) with me--otherwise I would have incured boarding fees. i was shocked that NONE of the local hotel/motels would consider a pet! In this day and age? I was willing to pay for a nice 4 star if it was close by Ankeny, but I didn't want to travel just as far to Des Moines as I would have to drive home. This was a social event the night before, a medical blood work draw the next morning, and then a doctor's appointment in late afternoon. For a small fee, we were able to stretch the late checkout until the appointment. It's not the most updated, but bed was comfortable, very clean rooms (including the bathrooms!), and the folks were great from the various front desk people to the cleaning people. I didn't have the morning buffet because I had to fast for 12 hours... :-( But that room looked clean and well stocked too.

"wish I had known"
Were put in a room that was smoking . I requested a non-smoking room but just figured we got it because we got in very late and the policy says rooms are not guaranteed. two light bulbs did not work. I told management in the morning they said I should have let them know about the room and the light bulb that night before. this is true but at 1am in the morning when I had been up for 23 hours I was dead dog tired and just wanted to sleep.

Definitely Motel not Hotel. The rooms are old & out dated, old tv's furniture etc as well as the whole building itself. The blankets are old fleece blankets with (ciggerett burns in them) yeah, gross. Building holds a nasty unpleasant smell most of the time. Plus of Motel. The staff were nice polite people with a smile. Location is 15 minutes to downtown Des Moines, and about 35 to Ames so location was good. Those are about the only decent things I can mention.

"A true 2 star hotel"
I will never understand how smoking is still allowed in hotels in Iowa ! The smell is everywhere. Housekeeping was tipped well and kept my well worn room clean. My bedspread had cigarette burns in it. AC unit worked well for August but was filthy. Back door to second floor room was missing a lock entirely. Cigarette butts all over the parking lot. I was locked out of my room for no reason and the night supervisor freaked me out when her key didn't work. Maintenance was able to get me in. All in all....no fault of the workers but this place needs new ownership and a total overhaul. It's clear they aren't upkeeping the property.

"Very disappointed!"
First impression when u walk in-dirty! Carpets were in desperate need of a vacuum! Get up to our room and it smelled like a truck stop back in the day when you were allowed to smoke! I'm a smoker, I don't smoke in my house and that smell is exactly why! It was everywhere! The sheets and blankets smelled like smoke and the blankets had cigarette burns in them! Gross! I had to put a shirt over my pillow case and still felt like things were crawling on me all night! Not what you would expect when paying over $100 for a one night stay! And forget eating that free breakfast I wouldn't eat or sleep there again if YOU PAID ME! I'm not a clean freak but come on open a window and air the place out! Worst experience ever and complete bummer on an otherwise nice weekend get away!

"Do not recommend to non smokers"
Very disappointed with the whole experience. Have stayed at many Days Inn's and they were fine. We booked a non smoking room and were given a smoking room, when we tried to switch they said they were non available. No screens in the window so we had to buy and 'make' our own so we could air it out. Bought candle warmer and air fresheners to try and get the smell out but it did not work. No outlet covers on the outlets, holes in the drywall in the bathroom, paint falling from the ceiling in the bathroom, no bolts on the toilet, it was actually on shims. Due to safety/health concerns this hotel should be shut down.

When I arrive I suppose to have a roll away bed in one of my rooms. The young man at the front desk said we don't do that. When I made my reservation I was that was available with a ten dollar charge . His response we have n't had those in years and asked me who made my reservation and tolld him made them online. He than say thats what I get for making it online. I found that to be very rude and unprofessional. He needs customer training.

"Adequate"
I stayed here for three days while visiting friends in the area. It was a decent hotel - exactly what I expected at this price point. The front desk staff were very polite and attentive. My room included a microwave and refrigerator, clock radio, and TV with a very good selection of channels. The bathroom was definitely showing signs of age and use - dripping faucet, crumbling wall, and yellowed tub surround, although the shower was very pleasant - full spray and pressure. The bed was quite comfortable. The room was also very clean in most areas, including the bed and the bathroom, but I did notice some cobwebs here and there, and the window could have used a good cleaning. In all, I would say a very adequate room with nothing remarkable to praise or complain about.

"Don't let the exterior scare you."
When I drove up to the hotel, it had a very unassuming entrance. I was not expecting much right then. When I went to the front desk, there were a lot of security monitors that scared me a bit because I was concerned as to security. However, when I went to my room, I was pleasantly surprised. The room and bathroom were clean. It was convenient to have a microwave and fridge in the room, even though we did not use it. I got a couple of really good nights sleep. The bed was very comfortable. Nice variety of television stations, also. The breakfast included in the price was very good. A step above continental. Very good orange juice and waffles.
