We visited relatives in Ankeny. Our beds were too firm but an additional blanket underneath us served our needs. The breakfast was one of the best that we have found in our world travels. It was excellent. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We will return next time.

Nice Hotel near Iowa state university

Pros: The staff at the counter was very nice and tried to do the best they could.
I booked my reservations through Travelocity for two nights. I show up and the hotel staff informs me that the room I booked on Travelocity website was wrong and they could not honor. They have asked Travelocity to take that room off the website and they wont and that they could not do anything for me because I had not booked through the hotel. I asked if I was going to get a cheaper rate because I was not getting the room I wanted and again they said that they could not do anything because I went through Travelocity. Asked for a manager and she said the same thing. I think if you are advertising through Travelocity you should be able to do something they are representing your hotel. i will not stay at Fairfield Marriott again.

Something for all ages.

Pros: Excellent facility at an affordable price.
Cons: We found no defficencies
Location: We lived in this area in the 50's and 60's. Nice to notice the changes and the similar places.
We arrived first, we checked our rooms, we had 3 rooms, second floor, all close to one another and close to the elevator very nice for our 3 adult children and us the octogenarian parents. We all enjoyed the breakfast and Jeff swam. The motel personnel were pleasant and helpful. I used the last of the syrup on my Belgian waffle. I told the food runner that the syrup was low. She brought a serving of syrup to me and replenished the pitcher near the waffle iron. The bills were slid under our doors in the wee hours of the morning, that made check-out very quick and easy.
