A "Field & Stream"-type ThemeThis place is pleasantly cluttered with an outdoors-man-type theme - fortunately, there are no animal heads on the walls. One of the best places I've stayed at - new, clean, well-maintained, spacious, classy. Impressive two-story high, glass-walled entrance lobby from front to back of building, with ...

Nice hotel just off I-35We stayed at the Ankeny Ramada while traveling through Iowa in July 2017. It was really easy to find, just off I-35. The hotel has an indoor pool that usually had several kids playing in it. It is connected to the Ankeny Diner, which is where the breakfast is. The breakfast was good but took a long ...

Really good right-off I80 highway. First time staying at the Fairfield. Found it to be very pleasant. Rooms were clean and comfortable. This particular hotel had the best water pressure in the shower that I have experienced in my recent travels. The am breakfast was really well done, lots of choices. The only thing I would recommend ...

Beautiful, Relaxed FeelThe staff at Stoney Creek were so friendly and helpful. The A.C in our room was not working at the time of our stay. The staff kindly moved us to a new room and gave us a small gift for our troubles. The rooms were very clean with a nice "get away" feel. It was a quiet and relaxing environment. Will ...

More than decent. Could use a few tweaks. First off the room and water park were fantastic. My only complaint lies with the restaurant. Floor was sticky (like step out of your flip flop sticky) and the service was sloooow, they were out of many items.

Expensive, Great LocationCheck in was quick, disappointed that there was no longer a whirlpool. Room was clean, would have been nice if the beds would have been queen-sized instead of full. Not too easy to fit 2 adults in a full-size bed. The pullout sofa bed was the absolute worst- since it was a premium room at a premium ...

The stay was ok.We had some issues right off with the room. There was a cigarette butt on the bathroom floor and the shower was dirty. Tenisha(sp?) at the front desk was great. She upgraded our room and did a walk through before we moved everything over. There was a group playing bags in the parking lot. Which was ...
