      Great Place to stay!Great place to stay, room was wonderful, very comfortable. Breakfast buffet was good. I thought the Cafe menu was a little limited, but the food was good. All staff very friendly. We received several texts during our stay, asking how everything was going.

                      Ramada Inn AnkenyWhy do we always get noisy ppl overhead? This is not the hotel's fault, but seems to be a constant in hotels. Kids jumping off of the bed at midnight? Just our luck. I finally got to sleep when they stopped. Otherwise it was fine. It was clean. It was as expected.
