Would stay here again
Our room was clean, comfortable, and check-in was a breeze. The only negatives we experienced were that the "hot" breakfast was cold every morning, and the entire hotel had to evacuate at 1:00 a.m. on one of the nights because all of the fire alarms were going off (there was no fire).

6/10 Good

Very convenient to walk to downtown Des Moines area. Individual room was comfortable and clean. Staff were courteous and helpful. On the negative side, there must have been a sewer line break that left a unpleasant odor on the ground floor, and the swimming pool was closed for maintenance.
