Honestly, my husband and I really, really, really, don't like staying at hotels. However, as we drove out of the parking lot after staying 2 nights at Stoney Creek, my husband sighed. When I inquired what was wrong, he said, "We have to leave." HA! We just LOVE the decor and inviting atmosphere. We stayed in a whirlpool suite in...

We made a return visit to the Stoney Creek in Johnston, after not staying there for several years. Nice and convenient location off I-80 in Does Moines. Rooms are nice and quiet. Love the rustic atmosphere. Only issue was at breakfast....most hotels have things ready by 6:30am. If your breakfast hostess would have just gotten to work, instead of telling...

I stay at this hotel several times a month for work and also use it for personal stays. The atmosphere and accomodations are outstanding. Very clean and inviting. I have found most of the staff to be more than helpful and friendly, however, I have to mention one particular staff member, Ethan, he is just a pleasure to work with....

Absolutely loved this place! We stayed in a ground floor theme suite in the Cottages. So very nice if you have a pet, as we do! Separate outside entrance to room, with a small patio to sit on. Cottages were very nice, quiet and clean. Loved the large whirlpool and the Keurig coffee maker! The staff was very friendly and...

I've been to the Hilton, Shearton, Ramada, Holiday Inn's but nothing can beat the experience and memories I will have at Stoney Creek Inn in Johnston, IA.

My husband and I went here on our honeymoon. We didn't really have any complaints except there was no parking in the hotel lot because of a conference going on and there were a lot of extra noises. We loved the room though. It was a great size and the hot tub was fabulous.

Dear Rpower517, Congratulations on your marriage and thanks for including us in your honeymoon plans. I regret that the timing of your stay created a parking and noise issue for you. While we do encounter them on occasion, fortunately for most guests it is indeed a rare occurrence. Thank you for sharing your comments and the kind words as well....

Dear tnywmn We are so very sorry to have disappointed you especially on so many levels. We have signs posted that clearly state that food in the pool area is strictly forbidden (due to health regulations) and unfortunately some guests during your stay obviously ignored this rule and went unnoticed by staff. We have nineteen different room types at our...

I decided at the last minute to take my three granddaughters 4,12 and 20 to Des Moines. This was the most reasonably priced hotel still available with an indoor pool and free breakfast.

I was in Des Moines on business. Have stayed at this hotel several times. Have been impressed each time. This time was in the cottages and the massage chair in there was fabulous!!! Was trying to figure out how I could sneak it in my van when I checked out. :). Will stay again.
