"First stay at a LaQuinta"

I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel itself was well maintained, clean and the employees were friendly and very helpful. Price was in line with other quality hotels. I will stay at LaQuinta again. Breakfast had a variety of foods and were very good.

4th floor smelled of stale cigarette smoke. Hotel need major upgrade as it is old. the cable was intermittent and didn't work most of the 2 days we were there. Stay away from the briskets and gravy. briskets fine but gravy had very funny taste. The rest of the breakfast was very good.

"Recent Iowa Trip"

The trip was made to trace back my ancestry, a part of the Des Moines community. For my purposed the La Quinta In was reasonably located to Drake University and First Christian Church. The hotel accommodations and facilities were well maintained and provided a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. Fuel, shopping, dining and medical care are all conveniently located in the vicinity of the hotel. The West Des Moines/ Clive area is very pretty and provides a pretty backdrop to an good evenings rest at the La Quinta Inn.

"Excellent motel with a Cracker Barrel nearby!"

When traveling to Missouri to visit family we chose LaQuinta and were very happy with our choice. Although sometimes we drive straight through, when we do want to stay overnight we choose this hotel. It was conveniently located off the interstate, has a Cracker Barrel across the parking lot to eat at, looks and smells clean (love the citrus soap), and has very helpful and friendly staff. Will definitely stay again!

"Basic and Comfy, but breakfast is rubbish"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 7, 2014

I stayed at this hotel while attending the Farm Progress Show. This hotel is in a good location close to the main route north to Boone for the show, and the surrounding area has some great restaurants. I stayed in room 324 which was very comfortable. The only issue I had was getting use to the AC which was a little noisy. The room was cleaned immaculately every day and I wanted for nothing. The staff were friendly and helpful, however the breakfast was very poor. Yes, I know its a continental breakfast but you really can do better than that for only a little more effort. The poor breakfast wasn't a show stopper and we eventually had breakfast at the show ground. On the whole a comfortable stay.
