"Renovations made this a much better stay"

Stayed here two years ago overnight, it was ok, but hotel rooms looked worn and needed some updates. The room I stayed in had new carpet, flat screen TV, clean and comfortable. The location is very convenient, and I would stay again when I need to come back to Des Moines. I like that pets are accepted as well.
"Much better than the la Quinta in Omaha but not nearly the quality of Elk City."

We frequently stay at the La Quinta's because we travel with a small dog. We have found that all La Quinta's are not created equal. This one is clean and the staff friendly. The breakfast is nothing special. I was pleased that they did clear the snow and ice from the driveway and sidewalks. They even had salt spread in the walking ares. This was do much better than the La Quinta in Golden. Co. where even the handicapped ramp was iced over. By the way. Des Moines had more snow on the ground than Golden. The Midwest work ethic is definitely shows through here.i would stay here again.
Not a real fancy place. But very comfortable ,clean , friendly people and very helpful. Big pool area with a hot tub. Great beds and plenty of soft pillows. Food and coffee where good and they have make your own waffles. We will stay again in the furture. Close to hospitals and shopping and plenty of places to eat.
Good halfway point from SE Michigan to Denver, Co. Staff very friendly and accommodated us and our two small pets with no hassle. Requested a ground level room to have easy access to walk the dogs and given one near the exit into and out of the hotel.
Halls & room were very clean. Building has been well maintained. Decor is tasteful. Our king bed was comfortably firm with plenty of pillows that were thankfully not over-filled. Room was quiet. Check-In/Out was speedy. Two restaurants with-in an easy, few minutes walk.
