"Nice Place"

This hotel seems a little older, but is still nice. The pool is nice size and clean. The breakfast was good and staffed to keep it stocked and clean. The staff we met were friendly and the rooms clean.

The room was good, beds were fantastic, staff friendly and informative. 20 minutes from downtown DesMoines so if you need to be downtown might want to choose another hotel. No other LaQuinta's in area. I love LaQuinta brand hotels. Find them to be clean and fairly affordable.

The desk clerk, Larry, was very helpful. Checked me in, made sure I had what I needed. Very personable. Thank you, Larry, for suggesting we eat at The Machine Shed. You made our trip and stay very pleasurable. Would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.

"Worn out"

We stayed at this same LQ 10 years ago and had a great experience then from what in recall. I know that's a long time ago, but much has changed. The front desk staff was inconsistent. One person told us they didn't have the 2 rooms we booked as they were already full & we had already prepaid for thm. Then after she was corrected by another coworker she tried to charge us again for the rooms. All was resolved by the 2nd staff member who was helpful throughout the stay. No complaints about the pool/spa. It was your standard pool area but clean enough. The rooms have fairly new carpet with little to no stains in our two rooms. They walls were scratched and stained in many places-could use a fresh coat of paint. The windows had gaps at the bottom where you could see daylight through a 1" by 1.5" opening. This let in outside air and noise from interstate traffic. Also of the 4 rooms we saw on the 3rd floor all had sizeable gaps all along the side and either the top or bottoms. This also let in and out more than desireable amounts of noise and light. Also the walls seemed thin as we could hear does barking from 2 rooms away much of the night. Less than desirable 'breakfast' included cracked hard boiled eggs with black yokes and few other options unless you like waffles. We got a good price through priceline and the place was clean but very worn.

"Good, Restful Overnight Stay"

This was our first time at a La Quinta. The front desk clerk was very friendly. Rooms were good size and clean. Quite rooms even being off two major interstates. Comfortable beds. Could use some paint, but all in all, I would at this hotel again. It's not the Ritz, but a good hotel for the price.
