Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Everything was great during my 12 days. The staff were friendly and responsive to my needs. Breakfast was consistently delicious, with many options to choose from. Location is right across from Drake Univ. Old Main and a short walk to a few restaurants. I used the dart bus stop right near the hotel as well. I would be staying there on my next trip to Des Moines but they are booked up.
