I had a meeting in the area. The meeting that I attended booked the Holiday Inn but I chose to stay at the Comfort Inn even with the Holiday Inn block of rooms being less expensive. I am going to visit with the Company and explain that the Comfort Inn is very nice and comfortable. I am in Des Moines often for business. Thank you Glenda Gentry

For the price, this property is outdated and in need of many repairs. The bathroom was clean, but the toilet seat had a crack in it, there was rust build up in the bath tub and one of the ceiling tiles needed replaced. The windows could use a major cleaning on the outside as well. The pool area needs repairs as the ceiling was peeling in many areas, and peices actually fell in the pool while using it. The beds were very comfortable, and the staff was fantastic. Convenient location and parking, but for nearly $200/night, improvements should be made.
