Verified Hotel Guest Solo Traveler August 5, 2021
Positives: Quiet location, there's a Jimmy John's, 24/7 gas station, and a couple local restaurants within walking distance, and it's one of the most affordable hotels in the area. It's also relatively close to just about anything in Des Moines. Room was clean.
Negatives: Nothing fancy, and despite being remodeled, it still seems a bit run-down/outdated. There isn't a hot tub in the pool area and they currently aren't serving breakfast due to COVID. My room didn't have a mini fridge (though they do have rooms with them)

Positives: It was very convenient.
Negatives: Breakfast was cleaned up and put away before posted time. At least 15 minutes. Totally put away. Tables included.
