The hotel was very nice and comfortable. Reception was knowledgeable and very kind and helpfull... we felt seen and known! My two complaints would be: on our second night someone was running through the hallways after 10pm as well as in the room above us (bad sound proofing) and the other would be housekeeping waking us up at 830am on Saturday when we didn't need to check out till noon and were trying to rest after a very busy visit in Ankeny and before our long drive ahead of us.

We had a superior experience with customer service here, as we had to come back and get a room during a move and they took care of us promptly and gave us a nicer room gratis. I appreciated hugely the help we got here, which helped make a stressful time slightly better. Thanks for what will, I think, be a good memory down the road.

Nice quiet easy place to find, simple parking, close to freeway. Restaurants close by.

Clean inexpensive hotel! Located right near the interstate.

I had a late check in and the receptionist was so kind and prompt. My room was very clean and comfortable. I hadn’t paid attention to the fridge temp however and froze my fresh veggies which was a bummer. Check out was easy as well!

This was a nice, clean hotel room. The staff was OK. The major issue I had was that it was not a good value for the price. I went for the State Fair. I stayed two nights in Des Moines hotel, but was unable to extend my stay due to there being no vacancies. I was charged roughly the same for a nice hotel room at the Fairfield that I paid for a spacious two-room suite with luxury finishes and a great view in downtown Des Moines. If the price had been more in line, I would have been happy.

Terrible breakfast! No fresh fruit and the hotel ran out of milk before 8:30 am and made no effort to remedy the situation. We paid extra to use a fitness center where half the equipment was broken. Internet was awful and the Dish TV kept going out.

Third floor...minimal noise except the opening and shutting of neighboring room doors. room very appealing, seemed clean...only spent about 10 hours total in the room including sleeping. TV remote may need batteries changed ...very sluggish.

resturants nearby, easy off of 35, big pond in the back, great breakfast, omelets, fresh fruit.,very friendly staff

Great location for extended family to gather the night before graduation in Ames. Walked to a nice restaurant, sitting area to visit, pool and exercise facility for kids and a good breakfast. Easy drive to campus and back being right off I35.

Very up to date and comfortable hotel.. Requested a handicap accessible room loved that the shower was totally walk/roll in no step up and over anything. The room though close to the lobby, breakfast area, and laundry was very quiet. The staff was great and the multiple breakfast selections should appease about any appetite. Wonderful experience

Short, only stayed one night, but the staff was friendly and the rooms were clean.

Hotel is well managed and close to good dining. The morning breakfast (included in reservation) offered a good selection and comfortable seating.

I just stayed at theis property for two nights on a business trip. The General Manager, Jim, went out of his way to help me out. The room was clean and the hotel was quiet. Great to have after a hard day's work on the road!

We enjoyed everything about our stay. We enjoyed the clean, crisp decor of the room...loved having a microwave and small fridge. The room was very cozy, with a great TV. The hotel staff was very pleasant. We enjoyed the continental breakfast. We would definitely visit again.

Hotel personnel first rate. Extremely courteous and helpful. Room including bathroom was spotless. Convenient location to interstate.

The Fairfield Inn and Suites was ideally located for our needs. We were only minutes away from Altoona and only a 20-25 minute drive from the ISU campus in Ames. Their are numerous places to eat that are within easy walking distance, as well as shopping areas that are only a few minutes drive away. The room itself was very clean and comfortable. They had a variety of foods at their continental breakfast and the kids spent a lot of time in the pool. I feel that our room was well worth the price and that the staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. I would definitely recommend the Fairfield Inn and Suites to anyone staying in Ankeny.

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. We were there last year when it was under construction also. It is now complete and it looks amazing. We didn't have any problems with noise and it was a comfortable atmosphere. The staff at the hotel were very friendly.

Orbits had this hoted listed with a hot,pool,fitness center they had none!!! if we wouldnt have called [...] the manager we would of never knew. The hotel is getting updated and will be vary nice when complete. The staff was vary nice and the rooms was vary clean. I would recomend people to stay there but never and i mean NEVER go threw ORBITS. The love to false advertise!!!

I am terrible sorry that we did not meet your expectation. That is not the Fairfield way. I understand how upsetting you may felt when you came down for a great breakfast and there was no fresh fruit I have talked with the staff on teaming working breakfast to help better serve our guest like yourself.
