We were put in the back of motel and the door we used was covered with mud two of us slipped on it not nice at all
Understaffed and overbooked
I thought it would be a nice staycatoon and had a nice pool.
They had two groups of kids booked into the hotel. Would have been fine if they were staffed properly to handle that amount of guests. They were the absolute WORST group for that poor hotel. They left messes everywhere they went (especially the adults), disturbed other guests and their parent paid no attention to it. The hotel was so understaffed they couldn’t control the situation in the least and it made our overall stay miserable. The manager on duty did her best but even that wasn’t enough. If I she had had anytime I would have demanded a refund and gone home.
Very good place
Great breakfast, very comfortable bed, very clean, and modern furnishings.
Shuttle driver was supposed to be on call until midnight. When I called from the airport at 11:55 he had already gone home. I had to take an Uber which was a 10 minute wait, and $10 charge for a .9 mile trip.
Cookies and Milk
The renovations to the hotel are beautiful. The rooms are big, beds are comfy, showers are great, and thankfully the front desk has free iced water with fruit infusion as well as ameinities you may need that you forgot on your travels. Free Breakfast is GREAT and the free airport shuttle is extremely nice, friendly, and fast. The free WIFI worked like a charm. Cable TV is outstanding! Loving my stay!
The front desk has a little store next to it and unfortunately they were scarce on items that someone may need. Especially if guests don’t feel well or don’t feel like walking or taking an Uber to the grocery store for milk. Who doesn’t eat cookies and milk at bedtime?!
We are located just one-quarter mile from the airport entrance. The hotel is less than a 10-minute drive from Downtown Des Moines and a short drive to all of the citys attractions and commercial centers. The hotel features a free complimentary hot breakfast, conference facilities for up to 350 people, an indoor pool and exercise facility, a complimentary business center, on-site restaurant Big Al's BBQ and a guest laundry. The Ramada Inn offers free-to-guest airport shuttle service. We have many suites and connection rooms which makes traveling with family or other groups both convenient and affordable.
