We were here for a wedding and did NOT bring kids but picked the place because of the location. PLUSES: reasonable rate, great housekeeping and service overall., good location, you're away from town but only 15 min away. We were across the street from the airport but you wouldn't know it as we heard no planes. Food in the dining...

Thanks for your feedback on your stay and your suggestion on requesting a room across the hall from those overlooking our Tropical Courtyard is a good one. The majority of our guest rooms do not overlook the Courtyard but offer a very comfortable stay as well.

After a very long journey with 3 flights from Northern England we arrived at Des Moines airport tired and hungry. Despite the fact building work was under way and no bar we had a lovely evening in the grill type diner, no frills but freshly prepared no nonsense tasty food certainly revived us, we then slept for 12 hours in...

I stayed at this hotel overnight before catching a flight. The room was old and worn and the furniture nasty. The hotel has an indoor swimming pool and the room smelled badly of chlorine. There is no restaurant in the hotel, just a shop that had a grill in it. The food was just not very good. I would never...

Friendly staff - with a great location. The facility is older and needs a little more freshening up. Rooms are nice and clean with no issues other than the beds need the newer style mattresses and pedestals. The only complaint I have is the breakfast is a bit pricey. Omelet, bacon and juice for $17 seems a little high. Small...

Stayed here with 12 families with our softball team for a tournament. Management was amazing in setting us up with a block of rooms. They worked hard to meet our budget and the rooms were spotless and poolside as we requested! Everyone loved the pool and courtyard area - there was room to spread out which was perfect! Thank you!

I spent a night at this hotel due to a flight connection at the Des Moines airport which is right across the street from the hotel. The shuttle service and the check in staff were great and welcoming. The hotel itself seems quite dated. Most of the rooms are in an atrium around the pool which seems to attract families....
