I was so nervous about staying here. Made reservations for four rooms. Some of the reviews made me think I should change hotels. But it was fine. Rooms were very clean. Front desk pleasant. Morning breakfast was as expected.
Entire group was pleased. It was during the Iowa State Fair and there were no room discounts available but no other hotels were offering any discounts either.
I would like to personally thank Mary (General Manager) for your positive and professional attitude during late July stay. The fuse for the waffle maker blew and Mary called in her service technician to reset the fuse. Before the technician arrived, Mary had moved the two waffle makers to different areas of the room to accommodate the several guest waiting to make waffles. This was quick thinking on her part and she definitely earned the gold star for the day. The rooms were clean and the decor was up to date. The service staff cleaned the rooms exceptionally well and the front desk staff were friendly. I would definitely stay in this property again. Thanks!
Breakfast was terrible, but the bed was comfortable & it was easy to find. Is not far from John Wayne birthplace museum, staff was friendly. keep in min they are not in restaurant business. It was a good night's sleep.
We stay often at the West Des Moines/Clive Laquinta. Because we stay there often, we are treated well and some of the staff even knows us. Its in a good location off University Ave. The rooms are clean, the pool is nice, and breakfast is pretty good. The management changes often and the prices are really higher when there is a major event going on in the city.
This hotel seems a little older, but is still nice. The pool is nice size and clean. The breakfast was good and staffed to keep it stocked and clean. The staff we met were friendly and the rooms clean.
