This property was great for the money. Friendly and accommodating checkin. Remodeling so rooms were new. Restaurant was still under remodeling but there were others close. I had read some not so great reviews for this location and that was not what we experienced. For the area of Des Moines on a Saturday night you could not beat this hotel.
