The staff was very conscientious about safety and sanitizing concerns in the motel. Kudos to the staff Thanks for providing an environment that felt safe in these uncertain times Keep vigilant

Very modern, new and clean. Super comfortable beds.

Great breakfast, very clean hotel and helpful staff.

Love that it’s a “green” hotel. Rooms are clean and neat with nice little kitchenette. Hotel is close to lots of restaurants and shopping. So that’s all good but... This was my second stay, for a mother daughter weekend. Very disappointed that hot tub was not working. Had loud people on our floor, had to call desk at 1:30 a.m. to see if they could do something. No ice machines, but we’re given a bag of ice at front desk. Pancakes made to order at breakfast but eggs and sausage were cold. When checking in and out we had to look around for front desk staff. Not a real relaxing stay this time

Great experience. Hotel faculties, staff, overall concept is fantastic. Nearby many WDM attractions!!! We will be back!

I've stayed here twice now on business. They were very accommodating, friendly and clean. The rooms are perfect with the kitchenette and the bed is so comfortable. They even gave me a late check out of 3pm when my flight was delayed!

On an overnight stay for business, this hotel was perfect. Great staff, awesome location, and beautiful hotel. The manager reception and breakfast were a nice touch. This property is 8 months old and is very modern and clean. If my travels take me back to Des Moines, we would certainly stay here again.

excellent stay. very nice place. close to many restaurants and night clubs

This is a great hotel! It's located close to restaurants and shopping. I will definitely stay again!
