This hotel was clean, and the staff friendly. From the car, up the walk, through the vestibule and on up to my room, it was very clean. The room was spotless and did not have that industrially deodorized smell. Great shower too - one of my top three items. Anytime I passed any staff, I was always greeted with a...

I checked in immediately after what appeared to be a good ol' boy convention judging by the number of Dodge Ram pickups in the parking lot and number of mid 40s guys with gotees drinking beer in the lounge which were quite loud. As a Marriott platinum member my first impression wasn't stellar and as I tried to ignore the...

Stayed at the Courtyard over the Christmas holiday. The hotel is well maintained including rooms and common areas. It is a disappointment that there is no longer a cocktail lounge. There is a market area where one can buy beer and one choice of wine, refrigerated/frozen microwaveable items and other snack items from a cooler and pantry area. Rooms have...

We have hosted many meetings at different locations, and this hotel and team make us look great EVERY time! Great food, great accommodations, great service. We've also had breastfeeding moms who attended who needed a private room for pumping, and the Marriott staff handled that request right off!

Not actually sure if the hotel is new or recently remodeled, but very nice and clean. Staff were also nice and helpful and good food and drink options from the little mini restaurant/cafe. Rooms were also clean!

My wife and me stayed here one night, in November, We were greeted when we came in the door. Fast check in, and a great 4th room. That was roomy,clean and quiet. There's a small bar in the lobby, along with a bistro of sorts. We did get drinks from the bar and go outside and sit at the fire...

Stay 10 nights at this location. As with other stays this Courtyard sets the standards for others to follow. From the courteous staff, extra points for being green, to housekeeping I would highly recommend. Zero issues, so this is a short review. While there, I had a drink at the Bistro (Free coupons for Platinum Elite) and the Bistro Burger...

The hotel was great. Everything was extremely clean and well kept. The lobby area is also nice and you can tell they cater to the business traveler. Great area for relaxing and having a drink after a day of work. I would stay here again for sure if back in this area.

Room was comfortable and staff was friendly. Would have liked to have sat outside off the lobby at night but that area filled up fast. Pool seemed to be on the small side but we were in town for a wedding and had no time to use it anyhow. Breakfast was a bit pricey but acceptable.

This is a favorite place of mine in the Ankeny area. The staff are very friendly, and the rooms are modern and very nicely decorated. There is a small dining area for breakfast and lunch with simple options. Also, it is conveniently located right off of interstate 35 and north of interstate 80 about 10 minutes.
