Over all a good stay. Carpets in room were dirty. My socks looked nasty. Standard hotel breakfast. Nothing fancy.

Nice, quiet hotel. Comfortable rooms.

Posted Nov 7, 2014
The Ankeny Americinn is easy to find, priced right, and very quiet and comfortable. The front desk staff was nice, but not overly professional which is why they got four instead of five bars. I plan to stay here again the next time I travel to the Des Moines area.

This was my first time staying at this hotel. Everything was very clean and in good condition. Skipped the breakfast because I had other plans, but the coffee was very good. I would recommend staying here.

Pros: It is very quiet. Slept like a baby. Walk in shower was wonderful
Cons: The manager should consider turning down the hot water. It's very hot! Walk in shower is great EXCEPT the floor outside the shower was very slippery.
Location: Ankeny Iowa.
We will really consider staying here again. Their are restaurants near by which is wonderful with out driving into Des Moines. Gas stations with in the area. Freeway is right there for entering or exiting. Perfect location.

will stay again

Posted May 21, 2014
Pros: The staff is friendly and all request promptly attended to. Adult hours in the pool The hot breakfast...and it varies from day to day.
Cons: First night the linen in the sleeper was in a wrinkled heap and looked like it had been there awhile. The next day they make it and it was better.
Location: Close to Ames and Des Moines. Pleased to find Prairie Meadows 10-15 minutes away since we had a banquet there.
We stayed in this hotel over college graduation. It was a busy weekend. We did not hear noise from our neighbors. We had 3 people in a room with a king bed and sleeper sofa and did not feel crowded. The only item we don't like is that it doesn't have an elevator, but the desk staff volunteered and helped us carry our things to our room.

Staff was very friendly. Room was clean, although we did find an empty pop bottle on ground next to bed. Slept well and kids enjoyed pool.

Cute hotel, Beautiful lobby, weird staff

Posted Apr 29, 2014
Pros: Room was clean. Pool was awesome. Breakfast was very very good and had many things to choose from
Cons: More workers so the staff does not seem overworked. If anything went wrong with any of the rooms, it would have taken forever to resolve.
Everything was perfect with the Hotel, except the Staff. They had only 1 house keeper working a weekend when they were at MAX CAPACITY. Then, both nights the "laundry staff" did not/refused to show up. Therefore, there was only 2 people working at the hotel the whole weekend (when they said there was suppose to be 4). It seemed like the workers disliked something about the job and the front desk clerks were vocal about "working a job intended for 2 people". Other than that, the room was gorgeous, very clean. Bathroom was spotless. Pool was amazing and huge! Enjoyed my stay. Seemed slightly overpriced but, the hotel was 100% booked.
