The room was spacious and accommodated our family of 4 with 2 teenagers. The facilities needed updating though. The towels were threadbare. The staff was non-existent past 11 pm, so it was impossible to get more towels when we needed them. They only offered coffee, oatmeal, and granola bars for breakfast. The sink stopped up with water when brushing teeth and the shower felt like the floor of the tub was going to fall out from under us!

Carol, thank you for posting a review of your stay. Although you liked your well-appointed room, we apologize for the difficulties you encountered while you were here. This is not the level of service we generally provide, and it certainly does not meet our standards. Please be assured that we have shared your concerns with the appropriate teams, and we’re taking corrective steps to prevent such situations from happening again. We hope you will give us another chance to provide you with a much-improved experience. Sincerely, Hotel Management

My room was not very clean. The first thing I did was go buy a bottle of disinfectant to remove the food stuck on the T.V. remote -- and I cleaned all other surfaces assuming they had not been wiped down. The hotel provided dishes but you had to go to the front desk and make several trips back to your room loaded up with a coffee maker, toaster, plates, silver ware drawer, pans, glasses, etc. I booked a week - it would have been great if they had anticipated my needs and already placed these items in the unit. The bathroom sink drained slow, the plumber cleaned out the trap, but it didn't make any difference - he attributed it to poorly laid pipes. The bed and sheets were comfortable and clean. The workout facility was basic but good to have. A power outage occurred while I was there and the emergency lighting in the hallways only worked for about an hour. The desk person walked me to my room with his flashlight. The desk staff could be more friendly. The evening gentleman with the red beard was the only one that bothered to greet me when I came back to my room. This is a no frills hotel - It did the job but I probably won't choose this extended stay again.

Cold Shower and bare kitchen

Pros: Not much
Cons: breakfast is sad-apples, granola bars and coffee.
Location: Valley West Mall
This hotel has a hot water problem and their solution is to poll you when you complain so they can document it. Every other hotel offering full kitchen where we have stayed in the past comes stocked with dishes, pots, pans, silverware, cups, etc. Not this place. There is a card explaining all you have to do is call and they will bring up the supplies. Right. Not happening. You have to go to the front desk and pick up whatever they have available because if the hotel is full, you're sol.

Nice hotel in an excellent location

Pros: Location
Cons: Sound proof the rooms
the biggest drawback is that the rooms are not sound insulated. You hear guests moving around, watching TV, and talking until 1 am in the morning. Did not get very good sleep. Hotel was clean and in a great area with lots of restaurants and shopping mall.

Hotel was friendly.

Pros: Quiet
Cons: No free Internet
The accomodations were clean and pleasant. Draw back was that you had to pay extra to access the internet.

Staff Excellent, Facility Acceptable

This hotel is my first experience with an extended-stay type facility. While I would stay here again, probably, it would not be first or even second on my list in the Des Moines area. Here is what forms that opinion: Pros: The staff was excellent. They were very accommodating with pleasant, professional personalities. They are a big part of the reason I would consider staying here again. The room was clean and spacious. I like the location, just off the highway but far enough to be fairly quiet. Cons: The rooms were not well maintained. There was a huge water stain, from a previous leak which had not been repaired. The counter top in the room had a big gash out of it and the other counter top had been repeatedly used as a cutting board causing it to look scarred and dirty. Finally, and this is my biggest issue, the beds were terrible. They made loud noises each time you sat on them or rolled from side to side and they were so hard we barely got any sleep at all. If I was going to stay for a long time, I could buy a mattress topper and live with the rest of the flaws. This is not practical for a two night stay. The staff here are great. You will not meet more friendly hotel clerks. The facility needs more maintenance. While I greatly appreciate the cleanliness, management needs to keep re-investing on the structure itself. While I would stay here again, it is currently number three on my list of Des Moines favorites.

Clean, convenient, friendly.

Staff very friendly and helpful. Location easy to find, convenient to shopping and wonderful restaurants. Rooms clean, not particularly fancy but spacious enough and the price was extremely reasonable. Will stay there again.
