We've stayed here at least twice on our way through Ankeny, sort of the north end of Des Moines. Easy in and off I35 and shares its parking lot with Outback Steakhouse and Waterfront Seafood. They close earlier than we dine, but they are there...no driving. Pizza Hut delivers

My traveling companion experiences severe arthritis in their knees. Wondering whether toilets in rooms are the higher, oval shaped ones or the low, round ones before we call about reservation. Higher stools make it easier on knees when using stool. Thanks for your assistance.
They are the oval but still could be taller.

"any room would be ok since the hotel is located away from the highway"
"#100 close to parking lot & door"
"There is nothing much to see in Ankeny, so view doesn't matter."
"Room 216 had a lot of doors shutting noise - directly over entrance"
"A room on the North side might be better due to lighting in the parking lot seeping through the curtains at night."
