Entire hotel in great condition. Clean rooms, comfortable bed. Good location near restaurants. Easy access off of interstate. Complimentary cookies at front desk were good. Breakfast was simple but satisfactory. Well lit parking area. Would stay at this location again.

We stay in Des Moines on average twice a year. We've tried several different hotel chains. We always look for an indoor pool because the grandkids love to swim! We will return to this BW in the future. Great bed and pillows, recently remodeled and a great location. One of the nicest breakfast buffets for a hotel chain, always well...

I was in search of an affordable and convenient hotel at last minute for a funeral. This hotel met my needs. Room was clean and I had every convenience I needed for my two night stay. I did not attend the Wednesday evening happy hour nor the complimentary breakfast, but the evening desk clerk was happy to accommodate my simple...

This is a very nice hotel. I will definitely stay here again! The suite was large, there were ample plug ins, it was warm, there was plenty of hot water, it was quiet! The grounds are nice, it is dog friendly, and the ceiling panels in the elevator even have nice pictures on them! The towels were folded into fancy...

Ahh, you are the first to notice our elevator ceiling tiles. I love the blue skies above my head as I get into the elevator and wait for the thing to move, it sets a whole different mood to the place. I am glad you liked it as much as I enjoy it every day.

We stayed there one night on our way to St. Paul. It was clean and had little extras like fresh cookies and umbrellas to use. The pool/spa was very nice. They are undergoing renovations, so some things obviously needed replacement (like our bathroom tiles), but others things were brand new (like the bedding). A good breakfast with hot and cold...

Yes indeed we are renovating all our guest rooms and bathrooms. As I write this we are about 2/3 done and by late spring we should have the whole guest room package complete for a 100% new property!

We wanted to start our own tradition as a new couple. The room was spacious with a microwave and mini frig and a whirlpool. It also had two tvs which we used. There was not time to use the pool and hot tub or the work out room. We did sit by the fireplace and eat our carry out dinner....

Great West Des Moines location, right off University. Close to Jordon Creek Mall and lots of dining options-I would recommend Rock Bottom which is within 5 minutes as one dining option-great happy hour specials. They offer free Wi-FY and a hot breakfast.

This is the poorest "Plus" hotel I have stayed in. Don't be fooled by the property listing that states its a new hotel, as this building was built back in 1999, according to the Polk County Assessors website. So don't believe the quote on the website stating "This new hotel in Clive....". It's just a new hotel to the Best...

Dear Iowa hawkeye, thank you so very much for enlightening me and the traveling public for the improper use of the adjective "new". You are correct, the hotel was built in the last Century and I have not changed the description since buying the hotel a few years ago. It is still the newest hotel in Clive but that does...
