Great room, friendly staff, free happy hours, and complimentary food. Can't beat that. Our room was clean and had a refrigerator and microwave. The pool was small but I never had time to spend there anyway. Great experience for a business trip

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 24 March 2017

We stayed at the Best Western a couple weeks ago when in town for a concert. The motel is right off the interstate and is very easy to get to. It is also convenient for going into downtown Des Moines. Upon arrival the front desk clerk was cheerful and professional. She asked if we wanted a room on the third...

I have stayed in this hotel many times over several years for business and pleasure. Newly remodeled this year, very nice, clean rooms & amenities. Quick easy access to interstate. Helpful friendly staff. The 'happy hour' on week days is a great extra to relax after a business day.

Hotel was very clean and freshly remodeled. Staff was kind enough to make me a bagged breakfast when I had to leave at 3:45 am for a race. Room was very clean and well kept. Beds were nice and comfy too! Greatly enjoyed our trip and stay.

Thank you for your great review. I am glad you were able to take advantage of our "grab and go" breakfast to get you going that early in the morning. Bon Voyage and we hope to see you again soon.

The room was clean and comfortable. Continental breakfast was tasty. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay here again if in the area. My only complaint would be the pillows, could have been a little softer.

One of the best motels we've stayed in in the last five years. We travel over 4,000 miles a year by automobile and stay in motels that are pet friendly. It would be hard to find a more welcoming and well maintained motel anywhere. This was our first time here but will make this a regular stop for us when...

I found the hotel to be very clean and comfortable. I was very excited to find a tall glass drinking glass as opposed to the usual tiny plastic cups to have water in. The bed was very comfortable and pillows were great. I'm a taller person and really appreciated the tall shower head and great water pressure. I was surprised...

A pleasant "Plus" experience in the spacious suite with updated and tasteful decor. This hotel goes out of its way to provide nice silverwares for breakfast. Hotel is clean inside out. Room sound proof could be improved.

thank you very much for the good words about my hotel. I am so glad you enjoyed our dinnerware and silverware. We have long found out that food just tastes better from ceramic dishes then from paper and plastic. Thanks again and hurry back.
