Super 8 Clive / W. Des Moines

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed overnight for a funeral. Pleasant and comfortable stay.

They only had one employee on the grounds that night. She was trying hard but a long wait to check in. Parking lot and walkways solid ice and hard to walk to room. No salt or any kind of snow removal. It's an unusual layout with two buildings and no signage or room arrows to help get you where your trying to get to. Spend $20.00 more and get a place that cares.

will never stay there again what more can be said, what more can be said there is no more to be said

Right off the interstate. Close to shopping. Biscuits and gravy for breakfast! No elevator so if you have mobility issues stay on the first floor. Room was not huge BUT I would stay there again.

It was quiet, well equipped, just crowded room with two queen beds

The Des Moines Super 8 is in a very nice, safe area (not all are). The room and bathroom were super clean and updated. I highly recommend!

Very slow to get checked in with a reservation. Very disappointed in the breakfast advertised as a deluxe breakfast. Only had cereal and toast at 8AM. We stay based on availability of breakfast. There was biscuits and no gravy. Inquired about when it would be restocked and front desk had a flippant attitude. Probably will not stay here again.

There are restaurants and a gas station within walking distance. Nice and safe area that seemed to be a cooperate district. The check in staff was okay, but friendlier upon checkout. The floors were poorly vacuumed!!! Breakfast was okay. The room and hotel were overall nice & comfortable. I would stay here again.

Room was comfortable and Clean. Was appreciative of the staff during checkout, she was friendly and wanted to make sure that I had breakfast and did not go away hungry. She even went so far as to tell me what was available that I could carry out with me, so I could eat on the go.

I stayed at this location on my way to my vacation and also on my way home. Right off of the Interstate, and a variety of restaurants nearby. My first stay I had no complaints at all, second stay was ok, but the floor was uneven, the carpet was in good shape, but it seemed like there were multiple holes in the floor, and they just covered them with carpet. I would stay at this hotel again due to the location.

I stay here frequently for business. Clean, updated, never had issues. Occasionally is noisy.

This hotel had a great location, right off of the interstate. There was a variety of restaurants close by. Loved the fitness room, and the sauna. The room seemed a little humid, but not terribly uncomfortable. Staff very pleasant and accommodating. Would stay again.

I am in Des Moines for business a lot and always stay at this hotel. Has everything I need and is a great price. Can be noisy at times.

This hotel is a little gem - right off the freeway, clean, nice amenities and a terrific value for the money. We would definitely stay here again.

I hate to complain about things, especially when I got a "deal". But seriously? The refrigerator did not work at all. And YES it was plugged in. The air conditioner was missing parts and when I turned it on it would stay on for maybe a full minute. Then it would just stop. And that was it for being cooled off. Housekeeper was banging on my door at 9AM. I opened the door and told her she didn't need to clean because I was staying over again. By 10:30AM I had just gotten out of the shower and (thankfully) was dressed when she unlocked the door and was coming in! I honestly don't know if she fully understood what I had told her earlier. If you do not care about amenities or privacy,...this is the place for you!

very strong smoke smell is torture for nonsmokers! Why are there even smoking rooms available anymore? Get rid of them.

Our stay was a good experience. The hotel has been recently updated. The room was clean-my main concern when staying at a hotel. Interaction with the staff was minimal, but pleasant. The breakfast in the morning had a surprisingly big selection-cereals, waffles, biscuits with gravy, cinnamon rolls, and yogurt.

OK for price, found child's toy by bed along with a couple M&M's. Exercise equipment did not work the best. Breakfast gravy was only warm. Good places to eat in walking distance (Applebee's, McDonald's).

Great quick place to stop. The rooms were updated, linens were nice, and flat screen tvs are a plus. My only and biggest complaint is that I am a female that travels alone. I was put on the first floor, which was fine, but the windows did not lock so I barley slept all night. Also, big plus for this hotel not having the air conditioners that cut on and off all night. Those are terrible. I would def stay here again.

We pulled up pretty late and went straight to bed. The staff was very informative and friendly.
