Stayed here a couple weeks in August for business. It was a nice clean hotel, with good amenities. I will stay there again if I'm ever in town for business. They are booked up a lot, so try to reserve a room way in advance.

Front desk was organized. Rooms were very big and clean. The breakfast area was well stocked, and staff were friendly. The towels are the fluffy white towels. There is a pool area, with a hot tub- but no one was using it. The cashier at checkout was a little grumpy.

Was asked to stay here for business even though I was working down town. Would prefer to stay downtown but if I had to stay in Ankeny, this was a good hotel. Rooms were very clean and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and there are a few places to eat within walking distance.

We stayed here one night during a tandem bike rally in Ankeny. It is a typical HI Express, but fairly new and therefore a bit nicer than average. The best feature was the large breakfast room. You actually had room to eat without being jostled, which was a nice change from most hotels. The food was typical. Our room was... More

Great hotel for our team home-away-from-home during state baseball. They even accommodated our team dinner on Friday night in the breakfast area! Breakfast was an added bonus! The cinnamon rolls were a big hit!

This is a newer property, well maintained with all the amenities for which this brand is noted. It requires three turns off the Interstate so is a bit hard to find--they need more signs. Desk clerk AWOL for check-in and not all that friendly. But the facilities have all the HIE bells and whistles and there is no reason to... More

I came with a group of 14 people, 5 rooms for Odyssey of the Mind competition and this hotel, staff and management went above and beyond to ensure that we were taken care of from the moment we arrived. We had several children with us and the staff was always friendly and respectful. Breakfast was delicious and they always had... More

While traveling to the area for business, I made reservations for thee rooms, one night each.

It was a nice, clean hotel and the price was reasonable. The only thing we didn't like is that we got there too late to get anything to eat, so we had to go to another hotel to get something to eat. We will definitely stay here again on our way down to Texas.

Stayed here for work at Bridgestone in Des Moines. My room was clean and had nice furniture and carpet. Breakfast was out a lot earlier than the sign said which was great. Overall this is a decent hotel with clean comfortable rooms. Have stayed here before and will stay here again.
