Excellent Value and Location

I spent 4 days on the west side of Des Moines and this site was perfect. The breakfast included a range of hot and cold choices, the service was friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable, and the quiet site was perfectly situated near I-80 just off of University Avenue. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, including a couple within walking distance. I will choose this motel again.

Family friendly

Good location close to freeway and restaurants. Nice pool and hot tub kid friendly. Breakfast was fresh with many options including fresh fruit, waffles, juices, cereals. Room was a little cozy but very clean.

Nice Hotel Great for family or just a couple

My trip was fantastic. Flight smooth hotel very nice. pool hot tub, free breakfast. I had some issues with the cleaning staff. Only 2 of the many. I had a bigger issue with manager of cleaning staff. That did upset me much. The staff except the one was fantastic, pleasant, & very accomodating. there was a cracker barrel & a mexican rest very close. Also a Quik Trip (gas, food, coffe) in sight. very convenient. Would stay there again.

great experience

This was a fantastic hotel for the money. Rooms were spacious, especially the bathroom. Beds and pillows were comfortable, and room was spotless. The breakfast buffet had everything you could hope for, and it was delicious. The front desk workers were helpful and pleasant. Overall a great experience---we will definitely stay at this location the next time we visit family in Iowa.

Better than my expectations

Have stayed in Country Inn in another city and was very pleased with this facility. Room was clean and smoke free. Reasonable updates have been completed.

Good Hotel - but call them for non-smoking room

Our family had a nice experience at this location. We were too late for the chocolate chip cookies - but those are always good at check-in. Beds were great, breakfast was very good and the pool was nice and warm. Good sized whirlpool so you aren't sitting on each other. Our only concern was handled nicely by the staff. We had requested a non-smoking room when booking with this web site with but failed to call the location to pass that request along. We got a smoking room and they were unable to give us a non-smoking room due to a full house. They did try their best to eliminate the smell. And running the fan on the room heater/ac unit during the night did help. Give this place a visit. Good staff and they are within walking distance of a Wendy's-Cracker Barrel restaurants. Also close to good shopping and /gas stations.

Great holiday trip!

What a wonderful trip! The location is perfect for our trip, right off of the interstate. Our kids love the pool, it was not very busy, so most of the time we had it to ourselves. The breakfast was great, waffles, biscuits and gravy, cereal etc. My son proclaimed this "his favorite hotel" as we checked out!

Great Place, Great Price

We had traveled to Des Moines to watch the Cal-Wheat boys play in the state baseball tournament. Our team had stayed on friday night and even after an night with a hotel full or high school boys it was very well organized, well kept and clean when we checked in on saturday. The King suite was very nice. The sofa bed mattress could of been update to a bette quality but other than that the room was nice, quiet and clean and for the price well worth it.
