Fabulous place!

U

Very nice. We will stay every time we go to Des Moines.

Great place ill stay here again

it was a great hotel but La Quinta hasalways been good .

Overall nice. Room was spacious, hotel was fairly quiet, breakfast in the morning was great.

Lady who checked us in was so nice and quick! The lady who checked us out was very rude. Pool was very small and cold. During our stay there were two parties going on so the pool was packed. Hotel is set back from the attractions but right next to the highway. Breakfast had a huge variety of hot and cold foods. Close to food and shopping. Not a bad stay but not likely to stay again.

Close to a casino

Close to restaurants and theater

Second stay here and will continue to stay when I pass through the area.

Great stop for the night, dog friendly, comfortable bed, hot shower and good warm breakfast. Looks new and staff very pleasant! Definitely a stopping place again.

The handicapped room barely qualified as such - shower was a step in tub. There was only 1 mirror which was above the sink; the TV remote only worked after 4 calls to the front desk and the gal coming to our room to reset; the closet was dark. Was unaware of no room cleaning until we saw the notice when checking OUT; Earlier were told to put dirty towels in hallway; housekeeping did not supply face cloths or empty trash after being asked to do so. The room was very sparse and appeared that a painting/mirror had been removed. The gym was well equipped but when asked for remotes was told there are none because the TVs don't work. There were nice options for bkf and quickly refilled by attendant - great coffee! The evening desk clerk was personable and very helpful.

Very clean. Updated rooms. Breakfast good. Location excellent. Price reasonable. Understaffed so folks wearing several hats but they were still good to work with. Dog friendly so there were a number of mutts there, including ours.

I liked that this hotel was a bit smaller, easy to get to any room from the front. I was worried about it being loud because it's right next to the interstate but it was fine.

Nice property. Shower needs more water pressure.

Having 2 dogs, La Quinta properties are a regular destination for me. This was definitely the nicest of the LQ properties I've been to across the country. The only issue was the walls were very thin so you could hear your neighbors, dogs barking and traffic outside. Would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.
