"Nice place near airport"
We were just looking for a nice spot to stay closer to the airport and found this to be perfect for our last night of vacation. Very clean and modern hotel, room felt brand new! Staff were pleasant and we were only 25 min.s from the airport. We spend the day visiting down town Des Moines from here, easy drive there. Also fun to play in the casino for […] a bit and the pool and spa were a perfect way to relax after our adventures. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to Adventureland"
My son and I stayed at the Prairie Meadows Hotel because we were visiting Adventureland and it had received good reviews on Hotels.com. We were able to check into the hotel a couple of hours early and took advantage of the hotel shuttle and saved the $10 parking fee at Adventureland. We were very pleased with our room and the front desk service. We […] planned on using the pool area, but never made it there. The hotel was close to restaurants, as well as gas stations and the location is perfect if you're visiting either the casino or Adventureland next door. We'll stay here again if we're ever in the area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Surprise in Iowa"
Very nice surprisingly elegant great location overall great experiemceGenuine Expedia guest review
"AMAZING surprise stay!"
Even though I'm from Iowa and visit Des Moines often, I was unaware that Prairie Meadows had a connected hotel. I wasn't really sure what to expect, but as soon as I walked into the entryway, I was stunned! It has fabulous appeal, good service, and wonderful rooms. Very spacious and clearly up-to-date. Surprised to find an iHome alarm clock and a Keurig […] machine! Shower was nice and open as well. No complaints about this hotel at all! Loved it even though I didn't have enough time to enjoy it all! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great stay to access casino"

"An enjoyable experience"
We stayed at the hotel for several days and were very pleased with the service we received. There were several seating areas for informal get togethers throughout the facility. The business center computers were very useful and there was free WiFi. Our rooms were spacious and clean and each staff member greeted us with a smile. I was happy to see Starbucks […] available in the hotel, so I could have my daily espresso. The food was delicious as well. Whether it was an early morning breakfast, family dinner or a late night burger at the casino, we enjoyed it all. We even took in a few races at the track. Our group booked one of the banquet rooms for our family reunion and we all enjoyed ourselves on the dance floor. I look forward to my next stay at you hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

This place was great. Very nice and clean hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The only thing I found was the long hike from the motel room area to the locations to dine. The other negative was the noise of other guests at 2:30 in the morning as they returned from the casino. However, one has to expect this possibility at a casino hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a lovely hotel with many amenities. Staff was great and very helpful. It's a shame it's part of a casino.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Snowbirds heading home."
Cleanliness, quality of service and amenities were all excellentGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel - convenient if using Casino"
We loved the hotel - we visited the Casino but were disappointed in the smok filled atmosphere - the Casino has a non-smoking area but it is probably only 10 % of the Casino floor and one has to walk thru the smoking area to get to the non-smoking area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel on the Edge of Des Moines"
Excellent condition. Great Staff. Perfect Stay! The hotel is relatively new and is in great condition. Housekeeping staff is excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is a year old. It has modern decor and immaculate. It is attached to the casino. The only bummer part was that our 20 year old daughter couldn't go I. The casino. So we had to make an extra stop for her to have breakfast at a reasonable rate. We ate made to order eggs, sausage, and breakfast potatoes at the little cafe in the casino level […] for cheaper and better than you can get at Mc Donalds. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I would highly recommend this hotel. It was more comfortable than I thought it would be and very clean. The bar is nice and the restaurant had a nice selection on the menu, I had breakfast and lunch and both were excellent. We had a non smoking room and there was no evidence of it having been a smoking room. Of course it is a short walk into the casino […] without ever leaving the building.

"The Hotel you will want to stay at again and again"
This is a fairly new hotel and has all of the modern conveniences in the room except for a Microwave. The Coffee Pot is a Kuerig, with a few coffee options, or you could bring your own favorites. How many hotels provide that? The room is spacious, and it was quiet even though it was totally booked the night we stayed. There is a quiet little lounge […] downstairs to share coffee, drinks and conversation. Starbucks is also available in the same area in the morning, as well as a nice little cafe with a well rounded menu , just downstairs. This hotel is connected to the Prairie Meadows Casino and race track, as well as several eating venues; a steakhouse, buffet, restaurant and a fast food area. This hotel is in Altoona which is just a short drive to downtown Des Moines, and just off of Interstate 80. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel is great--Welcome Rewards on the other hand."
This hotel is great...literally a 4 star hotel without Room Service..Will stay here on every visit to the Des Moines area...I believe they are also going to add 180 rooms, and modernize the rest of the casino.A great property, and benefit to the community.Welcome Rewards, however, has been a pain in the butt. I guess I have to plan on calling every […] time I book a hotel to make sure that the credits are posted to my account. This is the 5th time I have had to do this in the last 9 months.

"Would Stay Again"
Very nice and clean hotel. The races were fun but if you are going for the casino, it is not much (small and crowded). Hoping to go back next season.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
