I was very disappointed to see an odd, very loud and obnoxious woman giving swim lessons in the hotel pool AND hot tub. She was giving lessons when we arrived at the pool and they did not end until 7:45 pm; was shocked to see her back by 8:30 the next morning. Very disappointed this hotel allows the woman to use their facility for this, taking away swim time for paying families if the hotel. Hotel guests were not kicked out, but loud noises, space used, and overall weirdness if this woman made you feel like you couldn't splash and play as normally kids would.

The should consider replacing the carpet in their rooms. My rooms tv had a line going down the left side, so I assume it’s going to go out soon. We had ants real bad in our room. I guess ants are better than roaches or bedbugs. The amount of chlorine in the jacuzzi was astronomical. When the jets were on my eyes burned so bad that I could barely keep them open. At night there’s a lot of movement and action taking place in the parking lot. Not sure what that was about but I have my opinions. Very good chance of never staying here again but it did the job this time.

We appreciate you bringing this all to our attention. We have contacted the maintenance team and had them go through the room and checked all TVs. We are sorry that you did not have a restful night due to the parking lot noise. Unfortunately people like to go through our parking lot to avoid the lights and due to Casey's next door, we get their over flow track as well.. Again, We are truly sorry you did not have a great experience with us. I hope that you will please give a another try next time you are in the Des Moines area

Love the two room master suite with fireplace and whirlpool tub. Excellent place for anniversary. Only down side was the noise coming from supply room next door, banging noise mostly at night. Maybe because laundry shoot to lower level was kept open,not sure. Got used to it a little so didn't complain.
