    Excellent Hotel. Excellent Location

    The front desk attendant for the weekend was AWESOME! We gathered in the lobby area to play games and watch a football game together Sat night and they were so helpful and courteous. The room was very clean and comfy. We came to Des Moines to do a brewery tour. The central location was very convenient. Easy access. Great parking. Will stay here again!

  • 4.0.Fair

    Friendly staff and clean accomodations unfortunately there were some guests in the building who decided it would be fun to play with the fire extinguisher late at night. This resulted in the fire alarm going off once at around 1am and again at around 4am. Sleep was a bit of a challenge that evening.

    Great stay!

    This was a great location for our family. We were visiting our daughter who attends Drake University and it was close. We walked to the Farmer's Market from the hotel which was only about a 15 minute walk. The staff at the hotel was very helpful and friendly.

    Best getaway to relax

    Absolutely sweet staff! The breakfasts were wonderfully delicious and so clean and organized. The bedroom I can’t rave enough about! I felt like I was at home, it was so cozy. Huge window in the room to see the gorgeous sunrise and sunset. Definitely a quiet stay and amazing pool with jacuzzi. Best feature of this hotel: you can bring your furry family too!

    Nice place, excellent value and convenient location. Mask requirements were not being enforced and that was frustrating…but that was the case almost everywhere in Iowa.

    Clean and fresg

    Everything seemed clean and fresh. Not sure is this is brand new but it sure seemed like it. Even grabbed an extra blanket from the closet and it smelled so fresh. Nice black out curtains (a must) Breakfast wasn’t bad either. I would definitely stay here again
