Our family stayed for 2 nights during the Iowa State Fair. The staff was outstanding and the complimentary breakfast was very, very good. I would definitely stay here again.

"1 Night Stay"
Just to start with the bad: the walls are very thin- I could hear conversations and someone coughing all night long in another room sounded like they were sitting right next to me. The beds are very firm and the pillows were very soft which I didn't like. Everything else was really good: room was clean (no mold, bugs, etc), breakfast tasted fine, and the staff was very friendly

"Pretty good"
The room was great!! Very spacious and a large bathroom. My only complaint was that the hot breakfast wasn't hot:( and I could hear the maids in the rooms around me... If I had been trying to sleep that would have been annoying, and it wasn't their cleaning it was loud talking and almost yelling to each other.

"Best Midrange Hotel in Des Moines Area"
We always stay at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Ankeny, even if we are going to spend more time in Des Moines. It's worth the short drive to know the hotel will be comfortable. The desk staff is always friendly and willing to accommodate requests whenever possible. Rooms are clean. Lounge is comfortable and has a nice atmosphere during breakfast. I don't stay anywhere else for business or personal trips in Des Moines. I even stay here when I have a conference to attend in Ames. I strongly recommend this hotel.

"appearance was nice, BUT..."
The appearance of the hotel was appealing, however that was about aas far as it went! The beds were very uncomforatable!! I woke up with a VERY sore back!! The hot tub did not work and was not even very warm! And when doing my search, this was my one thing that I required!! When I asked about it, all I got from the front desk was" well did you try pulling the red knob out?" and a chuckle from the desk clerk! There was a hot breakfeast that was better than expected.

"Stay here if you like firm mattresses."
Beautiful, clean , great staff, amazing breakfast, the only big downside for me were the extra firm matresses. I didn't sleep well because I need a softer bed.

"Confusing"
The room was okay, but the lighting was horrible if you really wanted to see anything. All the lights are rather dim. It felt somewhat like they didn't want you to see what the room really looked like. The 'suite' feel was nice and the decorations were fine. Our room did have a leaking window. They have left a towel on the sill to catch the water when it rains. Of course it did, so we also got to hear the continual dripping sound. The bathroom was good size and appeared very clean. Bright as well! Breakfast was good with a number of good options to choose from. Had the room provide options to enlighten it, I think we would have felt better about the cleanliness and upkeep of the room and given higher stars.

"I paid more for a Marriott brand but got less."
I arrived to find that I had been given the room adjacent to the ice machine. I could hear the ice machine running while in my room. I called the front desk asking for another room and was invited back down to swap rooms. I was given a room two doors down which was much quieter. I left for my event that evening and asked how late the pool area was open. I was told "As long as I needed it to be. Just no kids past 10." Later, I discovered the jacuzzi was not working. I sought help from the desk but he did not have a key to the pump room. I was informed that he would check with his manager and he would be right back. While waiting I noticed "stuff" floating in the pool. I checked and many of the pump nozzles were not functioning. I waited in the pool area for thirty minutes before I went to the desk in inquire as to the status of the jacuzzi. I was told that the manager would be in to fix it in the morning. I asked when that was and I was told 7:30am. I also asked the clerk how long he had know this since he had left me waiting. I was told "A couple minutes after I left you. Sorry." Before checking out at 10am, I checked the jacuzzi and it was still not operational. I informed the desk of this and the pool problem and they seemed completely surprised. Makes me wonder if the manager even knew? I will also be calling Marriott directly about my stay.

"Rested and Revived!"
The reason for selecting this hotel was to have a comfortable place to sleep, relax at the end of a travel day, get in a morning workout, and enjoy a hot breakfast before getting back on the road. We were pleasantly surprised at the warm welcome we received at 11:30pm. We were grateful for the hot tub access that night and for open, clean, and functioning workout room in the morning. This hotel stay met our needs and didn't break our bank account. I like that!

"Very disappointing!"
We like to try and stay at decent hotels with our kids, but this was a big disappointment. When we entered the room, there were ants in the bathroom, and the room stunk. We mentioned it to the front desk and the receptionist simply said..."sorry", and did nothing. The swimming pool was so cloudy that I didn't even allow my kids to swinin the pool for fear they would get sick. t will no longer stay at a Marriott property again!

"Nice mid-priced hotel"
Fairfield Inn and Suites, Ankeny Iowa is a lovely, mid priced hotel. We stayed here for my sister's graduation from Iowa State University, Ames. The hotel is a convenient distance from the university. Very good free breakfast- advertised as continental but had more offerings then just bread, fruit and coffee. Noise levels were excellent- we could hear nothing from the rooms next to us. There was a bit of stomping upstairs, but that's to be expected, and wasn't distracting or annoying at all. Rooms are small but well appointed and clean, with firm mattresses and a selection of plump, soft to firm pillows. all in all a very enjoyable stay! Thank you.

"Nice accommodations breakfast mediocre"
I stayed at the Fairfield because my husbands work uses the Marriott. Our room was nice and the service was very friendly. Breakfast was less then ok. Half and half was old and expired. The eggs and sausage had a oily taste to them that gave them a terrible film in your mouth and muffins were old and spongy. Disappointed to say the least. Paying over $100.00 I expect the free breakfast to be better.
