Not actually sure if the hotel is new or recently remodeled, but very nice and clean. Staff were also nice and helpful and good food and drink options from the little mini restaurant/cafe. Rooms were also clean!

My wife and me stayed here one night, in November, We were greeted when we came in the door. Fast check in, and a great 4th room. That was roomy,clean and quiet. There's a small bar in the lobby, along with a bistro of sorts. We did get drinks from the bar and go outside and sit at the fire... More

Stay 10 nights at this location. As with other stays this Courtyard sets the standards for others to follow. From the courteous staff, extra points for being green, to housekeeping I would highly recommend. Zero issues, so this is a short review. While there, I had a drink at the Bistro (Free coupons for Platinum Elite) and the Bistro Burger... More

The hotel was great. Everything was extremely clean and well kept. The lobby area is also nice and you can tell they cater to the business traveler. Great area for relaxing and having a drink after a day of work. I would stay here again for sure if back in this area.

Room was comfortable and staff was friendly. Would have liked to have sat outside off the lobby at night but that area filled up fast. Pool seemed to be on the small side but we were in town for a wedding and had no time to use it anyhow. Breakfast was a bit pricey but acceptable.

This is a favorite place of mine in the Ankeny area. The staff are very friendly, and the rooms are modern and very nicely decorated. There is a small dining area for breakfast and lunch with simple options. Also, it is conveniently located right off of interstate 35 and north of interstate 80 about 10 minutes.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here over Labor Day weekend. We were part of a tandem bicycle rally. I was a bit concerned that with a group of this many people, all of whom wanted a good breakfast, that the staff would not be able to keep up. No worries. The menu is not extensive, but there was an option... More

Customer service was excellent, rooms were nice, and decent amenities. Would probably not want to stay for any length of time but it is perfect for a business trip. Price was fair. And they do have a Starbucks. Food prices were a bit high.

It was a Good nights sleep for us. Quiet too. We only stayed one night and we were so tired we fell asleep as soon as our heads hit the pillows. Internet worked well for us too. There was a little funky moldy smell in the carpet by the bathroom door, probably from wet carpeting at some point.
