Environment conscious ownership

Posted Oct 27, 2017
I was so impressed with this hotel. Clean, comfortable, quiet. But best of all there were real glasses (not plastic, styrofoam, or paper) to fill up the garbage. The breakfast was served on real dishes with real silverware. It was apparent that this mattered to the staff. I thanked the manager (owner) for his efforts. It will be my preferred hotel when I'm passing through Des Moines. Surprising to say the least.

Thanks Pam, I am so glad you noticed our humble efforts at environmental stewardship. Our garbage is indeed far less bulky now that we use real china and silverware, and on top of it, I believe that food just tastes better from china then from paper.

Comfortable with an indoor pool!

Posted Oct 26, 2017
Very easy access, clean and comfy room. The pool and hot tub are a plus, and the staff friendly.

Clean, quiet hotel near the freeway.

Posted Oct 10, 2017
Generally a very nice hotel. Our TV didn't work initially, nor did the air conditioning. But the hotel front desk clerk forgot to turn on the switch to the room for the A.C. and he had to fix the "eye" on the TV to get the remote to "see". After that, all was good with the room.

Good Hotel

Posted Sep 19, 2017
Pros: Cleanliness of rooms, and friendly staff.
Cons: Bathroom lighting around sink is very poor. Also breakfast hour would be nice if extended to 10:00 for those that are vacationing.
Location: Good location. Used both the Quik Trip for gasoline and dining at the Cracker Barrel.
Enjoyed our stay. Staff were friendly and establishment was very clean.

Thanks Linda. I am glad you liked my hotel and it was convenient during your travels. We are primarily a business hotel and therefore most of our patrons are long gone by 9, therefore the shorter breakfast hours. But on weekends we certainly keep it on till 10am.

Mattress Pad doesn't fit

Posted Aug 31, 2017
Pros: ?
Cons: Everything I listed above. Get a mattress pad that covers the mattress, Teach your staff how to make a bed. Figure out a better egg dish.
Location: Location is right off I-54 and loud with truck traffic .
The bathroom tile along the tub was rusted and broken. When we got ready to get into bed and pulled back the sheets, the bottom sheet was not snug all the way around. Creases everywhere, plus a black stain line. The mattress pad didn't fit the bed, so it felt unclean to sleep. Very disappointed but too tired to call for a change. The bed should have been made right the first time! The egg and bacon did not look tasty at all and after one bite, it was true. The egg was like rubber, the bacon was very greasy. The hotel staff was sweeping the same dirt around for at least 20 minutes while having a conversation with the front desk person.

Dear Anonymous, I am sorry but you seem to have confused our hotel with another one as we are nowhere near Interstate 54 and the items you describe do not fit with our offering either. Good luck to you and we hope you can get your destinations sorted out successfully.

Great place to stay

We just stayed for one night. The hotel has a great location, close to I-80. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We had to use the sofa and found extra pillow and blankets. The staff was very friendly, courteous and helpful.
