Just finished three nights here and a couple of staff additions just make it better. Ryan and Emira make exceptional efforts to really make people feel at home on the road. Those that travel a great deal can especially appreciate the subtle differences this can make. So with Mary as the new G.M. and KT and Larry this location is one of the best I ever encounter across the nation.
Overall, the hotel was clean and enjoyable, however, we always seemed to be short on towels in both the hotel (2 adults, 1 child) and in the pool area. Bring your own shampoo - it appears to no longer be provided.
I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel itself was well maintained, clean and the employees were friendly and very helpful. Price was in line with other quality hotels. I will stay at LaQuinta again. Breakfast had a variety of foods and were very good.
4th floor smelled of stale cigarette smoke. Hotel need major upgrade as it is old. the cable was intermittent and didn't work most of the 2 days we were there. Stay away from the briskets and gravy. briskets fine but gravy had very funny taste. The rest of the breakfast was very good.
The trip was made to trace back my ancestry, a part of the Des Moines community. For my purposed the La Quinta In was reasonably located to Drake University and First Christian Church. The hotel accommodations and facilities were well maintained and provided a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. Fuel, shopping, dining and medical care are all conveniently located in the vicinity of the hotel. The West Des Moines/ Clive area is very pretty and provides a pretty backdrop to an good evenings rest at the La Quinta Inn.
