    I was very impressed with how clean and neat the hotel was. Rented a room for a couple hours and did 3 hours of the private pool. Staff was very kind and friendly. I will for sure be back! Best customer service I received. Hotel safety standards for COVID are amazing!! Will highly recommend.

    Overnight stay

    Checkin was good. Made an appointment to use the exercise area the next morning so I was the only one in there. Exercise area not as clean as other areas but front desk fixed the issue when I asked. Comfortable bedding. Nice large room. I would recommend staying here.

    The property has a very warm, family owned type of atmosphere. They are fostering a rescue dog at the front desk and made a turkey dinner meal for any guests around on Thanksgiving day. They also serve a lovely breakfast each day. Their banana bread is homemade in their kitchen!

  • 6.0.Good

    Overpriced and below overage hotel

    This was the most expensive hotel in West Des Moines that evening, but we had the worst experience. We booked for 4 but only got 2 towels and had to ask for sheets so our kids could sleep on the sofa. We had to put all of that together, sofa was super uncomfortable and mattress was dirty and cheap. Pillows were awful, not average but awful. The food was below average, you have one person working in the kitchen trying to prepare your breakfast that is supposed to be fresh except there weren’t any options. You get yogurt, coffee, French toast or cereal. French toast was soggy and not good. By the time we left this overpriced hotel that under delivered we had neck and back pains that ruined our trip. I saw on reviews someone said the same thing but I ended up booking anyway because I thought people could be extra picky, but we learned the hard way. My husband was in so much pain that it ruined our trip. I was super disappointed, it is definitely an overpriced hotel and the value was below average.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Disappointed

    We were disappointed in our stay and the customer service we received. We were in a "standard" room because we did not book through Marriott. This meant we had no coffee, no amenities and only 2 towels in our room. No cups, no glassware-not even paper cups, no lotion. And none available to us because "you are in a standard room". She was so snotty to us it was embarrassing. Will never stay there again.
