Good 7,5
Pros: The rooms were pretty clean; The deli-like grill was a neat amenity allowing us to grab some prepared food at a pretty good price. The kids really liked the pool area. The location of the hotel was convenient to the fair and the local parks.
Cons: There was mildew on the grout in the bathroom, and the pool area was generally beaten-up and not maintained well. Considering that the pool area saw the most action during our stay, it's a wonder that the hotel doesn't keep it up as a popular attraction to the hotel. And what's up with the parachute under the dome? It kept on dripping on us.
Good 7,5
Pros: Great breakfast and location is convenient. Close to airport and 5 mins from downtown.
Cons: The atrium is a bit dated, 2 out of 3 of the treadmills, the videos were broken and the bathrooms are a bit dated.

Pros: The pool and spa was nice
Cons: When we checked in, they told us the breakfast wasn't included. That's the whole reason we got the room bc the app said breakfast was included. After i told him it said online we would get free breakfast, he gave us 2 vouchers to use as a credit toward breakfast. Even though there was 3 of us, he would only give us 2. We still paid each morning to eat.

Excellent 10,0
Pros: The breakfast was amazing
Cons: The room was very drafty and cold. But it was 2* outside
Excellent 8,8
Pros: It’s very hard to bear this hotel when you combine pricing, location and amenities. Skywalk access is great during fall/winter so you’re not walking in the elements to get around downtown. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and the overall feel is in line with the Hyatt Place line of hotels. Bed was very comfortable and the room was spacious. Clean room without any funny smells, noises, etc. Staff was wonderful. Breakfast was plentiful with eggs, sausage, waffles, potatoes, oatmeal, cereal, fruit and an assortment of bagels/bread/muffins. Juices and coffee also included though the coffee tasted a bit burnt (and that’s subjective). Fast retrieval of my vehicle by the valet when we checked out in the morning. Rates are cheaper than you will often find in DSM on the weekend. Though I go in-depth with our “dislikes” below, many are minor or subjective, I just have a tendency to be long winded and detailed. Bottom lone, we would stay there again.
Cons: The hotel seemed understaffed for a normal weekend, and very understaffed for one that had back to back concerts at Wells Fargo Arena going on (Friday night and Saturday night). The staff was very polite and worked as best they could, and it is appreciated, it there should have been more staff available at check in time. We arrived shortly before 4, but our check in was delayed by about 25 minutes due to rooms not being ready, and getting my truck to the valet was difficult because it seemed only one person was available. Front desk staff offered free refreshments from the bar/store downstairs for the trouble, and again I stress that the staff were great but there just wasn’t enough of them. The room was spacious and comfortable but showed signs of wear for a property that surprised us, and the arrangement of the room felt empty. My wife and I stay almost exclusively at Hyatt properties; mainly Hyatt Regency or a Park Hyatt when we travel for leisure and normally either a Hyatt Place or Hyatt Regency when I travel for work. This didn’t feel like a normal stay (our first at this property in DSM, we live about an hour away and we’re in town for a concert) with Hyatt when we got to the room. Large wet bar (10-12’ long or so) but only two coffee mugs and a single serve pot on the counter. I’ve bucket and two glasses were on the other side of the room under the TV. We booked a corner suite so there was also the four seat dining/meeting table but no other dishes, cutlery or glassware. Felt like a half cocked arrangement that wasn’t finished all the way. No ice available on our floor also was a disappointment. Large couch with hidden sleeper showed heavy wear and had ripped seams and fabric in several places. Oddly enough, the light switch in the bedroom also turned off the outlet on the left side nightstand. Didn’t realize that until the morning when my wife’s phone wasn’t charged, but started to once we turned the lights on.

Pros: Most comfortable place. Great service.
Okay 5,0
Pros: The location to the airport is great. Park and fly is wonderful. We've stayed here several times in the past to catch and early morning flight and the breakfasts at those times has been great. Our flight was too early to get breakfast this visit. The parking service gentlemen are always very polite and timely.
Cons: Apparently, every other time we've stayed (we only stay here for the park and fly) we've been upgraded and actually usually get the exact same room. This time, we weren't upgraded (we certainly don't expect it) but the main floor room we got just seemed a little tired and seedy. People were outside the glass door in the hallway smoking cigarettes and weed.

Pros: Easy check-in and check-out.
Cons: One of the lights was burnt out in my room.

Good 6,3

Cons: We had a king bed that was too short for my 6’7” husband. Not a true king and way to soft. Did not get a goods night sleep.
Okay 5,0
Pros: Room was clean. Maid was very helpful
Cons: Desk clerk was very unfriendly. Was not at all helpful. Acted as if we were an inconvenience.

Excellent 8,0
Pros: I loved the location and the friendliness of the staff. The bed was super comfortable.
Cons: There was no elevator. As a woman traveling alone with two suitcases and a computer bag, it was difficult for me to manage the stairs. Fortunately another guest helped me.
Excellent 9,0
Pros: Very clean hotel and room, quiet, comfortable bed. This was a necessary last minute stay because roads were too icy to travel home. Was able to get personal care toiletries since I didn't have anything with me. Price was reasonable. Good variety for breakfast.
Cons: A bit dated but it has had some updates. Small bathroom. Was staying alone but had to shut the bathroom door in order to use the commode because the open door was too close. No lighting for the closet because there is no light in front of the door.
Poor 1,0
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Front desk staff very unfriendly, the room was disgusting. The carpet felt like there was a thick layer of crud all over it. Made your feet/socks black. Sheets were dirty had to have them changed out. Hair and mold in shower. Only stayed about 5hrs.
Good 7,0
Cons: Wish breakfast would change.. same thing every day.
Mediocre 3,0
Pros: It had a pool and was close to our destination.
Cons: remote did not work, staff did not offer to come fix it. room was not cleaned, found coins, makeup smudges, and medication under the bed. carpet was wet in one spot. the hot tub was extremely hot and not able to be adjusted, but no sign to let you know.

Pros: Location and airport shuttles
Poor 1,0
Pros: Location

Okay 4,0
Cons: The room was very,very musty smelling. The bathroom reeked of pee. We've paid a lot less for cleaner rooms. Had to park behind the hotel, then walk around to the front, no key entry in the back. The outside sign was not turned on. NOT HAPPY WITH OUR STAY!
Good 7,0
Pros: Close to where I needed to attend a meeting. Plenty of hot water in the AM shower, heater worked in the room.
Cons: Breakfast was pretty marginal, but if you want a real breakfast you can drive to a restaurant someplace nearby. The computers were not working well during check in so it took a while longer than expected...the person at the front desk was frustrated by the computer- seems this is a re-occuring problem. The lighting in the room was just OK. Bathroom was very small but hey, I was just me so that is cool-
Good 7,0
Pros: Nice motel, clean
Cons: Driveway is steep, fine for SUVs, but glad I didn't have my Mustang, I couldn't have gotten in without damage. It was a little short on parking, but this was due to snow covering the lines and people parking too far apart.
Poor 1,0
Pros: the only thing good about this hotel was the location
Cons: it smelled like mold and there was some on the shower curtain. The lady cleaned the room, but didn't bother to replace the toilet paper. there carpet was wet in the hallways. I was barely in the room and they decided to charge me $200 claiming we smoked!
Poor 1,0
Pros: Nice electronic door locks. Would not recommend staying there.
Cons: Hotel manager was very unfriendly, yelled at me. big marathon race. Common courtsey, runners ask for a late checkout. I ask for one during checked in, I did not get an answer, ask morning clerk, she did not know. I walked in at 1:00pm, I got che

Excellent 9,7
Pros: It's literally 3 minutes from everything downtown. It's a quaint hotel and the prices are super reasonable for the location and size.
Cons: There were a few places on the walls where the paint could have been touched up. I'm also not a fan of the soap dispensers in the shower. Just a personal preference, and I usually bring my own.
Excellent 10,0
Pros: USB and electric plugs by the bed for conveniently charging your phones and laptops. Clean and has a nice bathroom with great water pressure.
Excellent 10,0
Pros: Surprisingly nice and comfortable for the price. TV, Wifi, etc. Room as clean and as big as you'd need it to be. Pretty close to downtown Des Moines. Staff was nice, but I didn't have any problems to test them with. Would stay again.
Cons: Outside of the motel and the sign makes it look very cheap and crummy (fortunately it is just a ruse and it's nice inside). Shower head was a little weird to me, (has high enough pressure but spray is pretty narrow, and I had to duck a bit).
Excellent 8,0
Pros: Don't be discouraged by the dingy looking exterior- it was a very nice room for the price! Nice shower, plenty of outlets, amenities such as shampoo, conditioner and soap, with clean towels. Cable TV and comfortable chair. Exceptional customer service.
Cons: Uncomfortable bed and rough feeling sheets. Close to the road, so plenty of noise from trucks. Some ants in parts of room.
Excellent 9,1
Pros: Being close to downtown is always a good option. We've stayed here multiple times and it's never been a bad experience.
Cons: The soap dispensers weren't filled up.
Good 6,2
Pros: Newly refurbished
Cons: I had food that needed a refrigerator and the room did not have one. No microwave either. I got bug bites on my foot.
Good 7,7
Pros: Very clean. Newly remolded.
Cons: Wifi password wasn't posted anywhere, went and asked for it and it was a bunch of numbers and I went back to my room and typed it in and it was wrong... no shampoo or conditioner in shower.
Excellent 10,0
Pros: Our stay here was great. The room was very clean and the staff stayed up late to check us in. It reminded me of a Hilton, but with much better value.
